Saturday, November 17, 2018-- Little Italy 1st Time 

We are thrilled to open the fall/winter 2018 season with fresh exciting venues. We also want to thank all of you who continued to support our social networking for people living with HIV, throughout 2018. You all know just how important and for many comforting, it is to see and meet others facing this same personal medical condition. It is not too late for you to represent yourself in 2018!

We are also excited about a couple of new projects we have begun this fall, they have potential for state and national exposure; but more on that as we move through the fall season. Let us now share with you what we have planned to kick off the season on Saturday November 17th.

For those of you that know us well, you know we like to find off the beaten path venues. They should be the sort of interesting place you’d want to go back to on your own. They should also afford a certain level of privacy in a “public space”, which gives conversational intimacy, so you feel free to converse about anything on your mind, without having to look over your shoulder. We have a couple of venues which score pretty high on both of these two points.

We will begin our evening together in a medium sized hidden in plain sight lounge/club for a mixer from 6:00 to 7:00. The space is underutilized at this time of day, without going into the full story here; the venue has evolved over time largely due to NYC’s cabaret laws. All this works to our benefit, although we have concerns for the venues longevity due to NYC real estate pressures. The 4:00 to 8:00 PM happy hour prices are a throwback to another time.

For dinner we will walk two blocks to a very friendly, comfortable and moderately price Italian restaurant in New York’s Little Italy. You can order a two course meal for about $21.00 or a one course meal for $14.00; plus tax and tip. Over the nearly 24 years we have been organizing G&G gatherings, this is the first time we will have planned for a meal in Little Italy.

For all of you who have not yet joined us this year, you need to be a part of this first, we need you here!

RSVP Procedure

You must mail in $25.00, in cash only include the following information in your RSVP:  your name, address, telephone number, e-mail as well as a self-addressed stamped return envelope. This is the only way to secure your place for November 17th. Some of you have been told you needn’t mail in your RSVP, this is still true; please email us your RSVP. For everyone else please do not send an email explaining why you can’t RSVP by mail, “snail-mail” is the RSVP method for you, for now. Once you become a regular reliable attendee, this courtesy will be extended to you too!


An e-mail confirmation with all the location specifics will be sent to those who RSVP for the gathering by Friday, November 16th. If we are able to confirm a place for you, your $25.00 and return envelope will be given back to you on Saturday November 17th. If you do not show up, your $25.00 will be used to offset the expenses of running this group. If you RSVP as described above, and your plans change, lets us know by Friday November 16th and we will send back your $25.00 RSVP deposit in the self-addressed stamped envelope you provided. It is better to RSVP now; you can always cancel by November 16th without cost or penalty. And all RSVPs must be received at our P.O. Box below by Friday November 16th.


G&G’s mailing address remains:

Guys And Girls

P.O. Box 251

Should you have any questions or concerns please feel free to ask by e-mail. Or if you would like to speak to someone directly leave a telephone number in your email, and someone will call you back promptly.


Please remember we have brochures which need to be placed in your doctor or healthcare provider’s offices. Ask us to send you brochures, this is a cooperative effort, the more we each do the more we each benefit.


We look forward to seeing you November 17th.


Still Positively Yours,


Guys And Girls
