GGF Takeovers are a community builder and social mixer for the LGBTQ community, straight allies and supporters. An email, Facebook post, and tweet will announce the date and location of a local bar/restaurant that has agreed to host GGF on a Friday evening after work. GGF hopes by providing an opportunity for people in the LGBTQ community (and those that care about LGBTQ folks) to come together, have fun, share a drink or a meal that we can help unite community – all while helping support the work of GGF (participating venues donate a small percentage of their total receipts back to GGF).
Only the cost of your own drinks and food.
It depends. There are people that stop by directly after work and leave after an hour or so. And then there are the folks that go home change and meet up with friends before coming. Either works. A representative from GGF will be there greeting people from 5:30-8:00pm.
Then Takeover is for you! GGF board members will be there – wearing their silver name badges, working the room making sure that everyone is having a good time and meeting new people. You can also speak to board members and staff about becoming move involved with GGF.
Yes, we encourage you to contact the restaurant directly to make your reservation. And be sure to tell them that you are attending Takeover.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with a contact name, number and name of bar/restaurant
