Leif Smith and Pat Wagner (that’s us) believe in the power of networking: information and idea exchange for mutual benefit. Since 1975 we have been hosting conversation events where interesting people connect with other interesting people. Attendees span a variety of professions, interests, and political and philosophical points of view.

We offer light refreshments, a cool venue, friendly hosts, and the opportunity to indulge in chatting with people on a Sunday afternoon. Some of the folks have been coming since 1975; others will be attending for the first time.

So what’s the catch? No music or entertainment.
No agenda, speeches, or themes. We won’t accost you to join a universal cause, contribute to fundraiser, vote for a politician, buy a condo in Mexico, join a multi-level marketing business, or sign a petition.

This year, we invite you to bring a cohort of friends and ask them to meet you there. Maybe a quintet from your book club, your college class, your dog-walking neighbors, your work team, your hiking group, your professional association members, or your weekly fandom meeting. You can meet up with other cohorts, or fan out and make some new friends. We will supply blank badges and color pens; designate your group as you wish!

What are our rules?

The usual “public place” rules: no tobacco products including vapes, no marijuana (sorry visitors); only registered service animals (no matter how well-behaved you think your dog or raccoon is). Civil humans of all ages are welcome.

Although you are welcome to put brochures out regarding your favorite cause, this is not the place to accost people with flyers and soapbox speeches about candidates, resumes, or your business.

And if you do get into a mutually satisfying dialogue with an interesting stranger, keep it civil.
