What’s it like?

Do you wish you could have more of the kinds of conversations you have late at night where for some reason, you feel safe talking about the things you actually care about?

Bring your friends (or come by yourself) and spend your Wednesday night at an event where you know everyone else is there for the same reason.

We’ll be offering “big talk” conversational prompts on them to get you started, and we’ll have lots of structure to make sure that you actually talk to people and that it’s not awkward. Not feeling like answering a particular question? No worries, we’ll have plenty to choose from, like, “When are you the happiest?” and, “If you were going to become close friends with me, what would I need to know about you?” We’ll give you ground rules to make sure you feel comfortable and safe sharing as much of yourself as possible while still feeling in complete control of how much you divulge.

There will be food and drinks for sale!

Check-in for this event will begin around 6:45 p.m.. Please do your best to arrive before 7 p.m. so we can begin as close to on time as possible.

Skip the Small Talk is dedicated to providing an inclusive, welcoming environment for everyone. Check out our safety policy here: www.tinyurl.com/ststSafety

Need accessibility accommodations?

Unfortunately, Checkerspot is not fully wheelchair accessible – so please keep that in mind when planning for this event. We’re committed to hosting additional wheelchair accessible events in Baltimore in the future.

We are happy to offer live ASL upon request. Due to the use of one-on-one conversations during the event, we request at least five days’ notice to make sure we are able to provide an ASL interpreter for each person who needs them. Please reach out to Ashley at [email protected] so we can discuss what we can do for you.

Please see our event page for more info.

We are monitoring COVID rates and our COVID policy is subject to change based on local infection rates. For the safety of our staff and guest, we require that all guests show proof of full vaccination in order to participate, and a mask is strongly recommended.

Ready to skip the small talk with us?

Grab a ticket since entry is on a first come first serve basis and we tend to sell out in advance for these– once we are out of tickets, we will NOT be able to accommodate folks at the door.
