You could read about them here, or ask one of the many members of our community who have attended GRUEs held across the nation; with 70+ events held over the past 9 years, you’re bound to know a few people who can fill you in. In short, though, it’s a kink focused “un”conference, where attendees share their passion and experience to learn and discuss all manner of BDSM topics.
The Philly GRUE will be taking place this year at the Philly Music Hall on June 30th through July 2nd!
Members please buy your tickets and RSVP on our website.
Like most GRUEs, Philly GRUE has four parts, spread over three days: A Meet and Greet, the GRUE itself, the AfterGRUE, and GRUEcakes.
We’ll be starting on Friday night with a potluck Meet and Greet from 7PM-9PM at The Hall, where you can meet some of the amazing folks who will be sharing our experience.
On Saturday, July 1st, the GRUE itself will begin promptly at 10AM; we recommend arriving around 9:30am. There will be bagels and coffee available to help get everyone ready for the day, as well as a free catered lunch included for all attendees. The GRUE will wrap up around 6:30PM in order to give everyone time to find some dinner, relax a bit, and mull over your day before the AfterGRUE. Philly Music Hall will remain open and accessible to attendees in between GRUE and AfterGRUE, so if you don’t need that much time to find a meal, feel free to come back and hang out in our awesome space!
The AfterGRUE is a mix of a traditional play party and the freewheeling, energetic learning environment of the GRUE. We’ll turn the music on at 8PM, and the party runs til 1AM.
Finally, on Sunday morning, we’ll be having the traditional GRUEcake pancake breakfast from 10AM-2PM. We’ll be back at Philly Music Hall for a lazy morning of relaxation, pancakes and socialization. There will be also space, time, and equipment available to continue any conversations or classes from Saturday.
