The GrUE is GrayDancers Ropetastic Unconference Extravaganza. Based off of the Open Space model, this kink event will open your mind to what an “event” can be. It’s the event where the participants decide what is taught and you can learn so much in one day!!!
Friday Meet & Greet: 8-11pm(ish): We’re going to be trying out something different this year: we’re being hosted by The Pleasure Chest! Come meet everyone and swap “whore d’oeuvres” – it’s a potluck, and if you bring a dish you’ll be entered in a drawing to get free tickets to the NEXT LA GRUE! Meanwhile we get to hang out amidst all the nifty toys, books, and other conversation-starters. The meet & greet is a great way to make a connection with the people who you will be around all day on Saturday.
Saturday GRUE: 9:30am-6pm (ish): We’ll open the doors at 8:30am, with donuts and coffee to motivate you. This is the meat & potatoes of the GRUE, starting with Gray’s spiel explaining how Open Space works and going to the Closing Circle which should stop at 6pm. The address of the Bordello is in your email when you register!
Dinner Break: 6-8pm (ish): An important break where people can go off-site, get food, and get ready for the AfterGRUE
AfterGRUE: 8pm-2am (ish)” Similar to a play party, but also with a GRUE flavor. Music playing, people scening, but also people talking, learning together, and doing whatever feeds their passion.
Sunday GRUEcakes: 10am-2pm (ish): Gray brings out the griddle and his kilt and makes everyone his World-Famous Cheap-Ass Pancakes. Coffee and gluten-free options are also provided, but anything else people want they will have to bring for themselves.
