Please Note: clubs & groups such as The Crucible, Black Rose, Baltimore Playhouse, & B.E.S.S all keep VERY busy schedules with evolving special interest groups. So please see those respective sites for updates. 


In a recent trend, the area has exploded w/ smaller local munches (many averaging only 12 or less in attendance). More prominent meet-ups are listed, but there are just too many smaller gatherings that come & go for us to maintain. If this is of interest then please see Fetlife for possible options in your area. Thank you.
