The South Bay is home to a diverse group of passionate burners including seasoned and virgin burners! We host monthly Meet & Greets, almost always on the third Thursday of the month, at a different location within the south bay  We have other gatherings too! For example – Theme Camp “speed dating”, Newbie Orientation, Costume Workshop/Exchange, Burgin Graduation and more.

As of July 2021 South Bay Burners are back to our monthly Meet & Greets at different bars throughout the South Bay Area. These Meet & Greets are almost always the third Thursday of the month. For the most up-to-date information, please see our website: or FB page: for details on our next meeting.)

Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you’ve got about a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies — ‘God damn it, you’ve got to be kind. -Kurt Vonnegut, God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater
