Crazy Rubber Friends Community had arranged a brunch meet-up for its members, so Sunday morning we headed for a café in East Berlin called Gaslight Poetry.
We arrived at 11:30 am and there was already a little crowd of 12 people around two tables in the café. Some in fetish attire and others (myself included) were wearing regular clothing. We said hi to the others, gapped a table, ordered some drinks and dived into a luxurious 6 euro brunch buffet. The buffet was really great! There was white and black bread, boiled eggs, yogurts, serials, salmon, vegetables, sausages, scrambled eggs, soup, pudding and fruits.
Soon after, others joined our table and the total number of people quickly grew to around 30. Everybody was very friendly and very open. I talked to Gixxi about the internet and websites, chatted about the fetish culture differences of Germany, Denmark and England with MasterEmit, coming out and first time issues with a nice young couple.
Gixxi took a whole lot of photos of us all, but first she had asked everybody if it was ok. Some of the others from our team went home after a few hours to prepare for a photo session, but Ken and I stayed at the Café until 4 pm. We all had a great time and got some new friends!
Thank you Crazy Rubber Friends!
