Bay Area BDSM Munches

Munches are informal groups of BDSM-oriented folks who get together and talk, usually at mealtime. They are typically held in ordinary restaurants or bars, and are an excellent place for people who are curious about BDSM to meet more experienced folks. Write to the organizers for more information and to find out how to recognize the group.

This list is maintained primarily by my friends Searcher and Vicki and contains only the munches in the SF Bay Area where I live. Someone else maintains a much larger and more comprehensive listing of munches worldwide, but it may not be as accurate about events in the Bay Area.
