Sober in the City, Portland, ME

September 7 @ 3:30 pm - September 10 @ 10:00 pm

After four successful Zero Proof Experiences in Long Beach, Sacramento, Austin and Palm Springs, Sober in the City is coming to the historic city by Casco Bay.

This is a weekend experience!

Whether you are sober curious or sober serious, Sober in the City is for you.

In 2022, Susie Streelman, founder of Zero Proof Experiences/Sober in the City had an idea to create luxury alcohol-free social events that offer everything but the buzz. For her, the hardest part about giving up alcohol was giving up the social life she loves. “I drink, I just drink differently, and I deserve a pretty glass and a place at the table.”

The Portland experience offers:

Sunset sail on Casco Bay
Solo Social
Champagne Problems Podcast with Robbie Shaw, Patrick Balsley, Laura McKowen, Tammy Valicente, Kevin Mikolazyk
Ecstatic Dance
Astro Yoga
Sober Sex Chat
Portland photography walk
Thought Leader Collaborative

Four-course Dinner on Peaks Island followed by keynote speakers Danny and Helenita Froundfelkner
Specialty N/A Cocktails with local Kate Boyle from The Dry Cellar
Healing Sound Bath
Sharing Circle
“Find Your Song” circle with Danny and Helenita

“I came solo and didn’t know what to expect. I walked away with new friends.”
-Long Beach attendee

“I thought going alcohol free would be boring. I was so wrong. I didn’t want the weekend to end.”
-Austin attendee
