Feb 13-17: International Bear Convergence in Palm Springs
The first annual International Bear Convergence Weekend.
Friday, February 14, 10pm-2am: HARNESS ....presents LEATHER and BEAR TITLE HOLDERS EVENT
CUB CLUB SD and HARNESS are honoring The Leather and Bear communities and their TITLE HOLDERS.....ALL TITLE HOLDERS PAST AND PRESENT will get free cover until 11pm....There will be drink specials just for THE TITLE HOLDERS as well! SPIKE TRANC will be on the Smokers Patio selling CIGARS!!!!!!!
From Dangilo: Cub Club SD's laid back, sexually charged night. Instant satisfaction often found in the arms of Mr. RightNOW. Leather inspired night; without a dress code. However, jeans and harness (or shirtless) is standard. The Dancers are MEN, not boys...and they take the box in pairs at times. The DJs are often familiar, but they are encouraged to go against the norm- and the vibe is aggressive, sex-driven, and dark. Marcel spins this week, watch his smile become a sexy smirk. Come early to get familiar with the space (we move furniture, walls, and bars); around 1215- pandora's box opens---just go with it. (One more thing: if you have ever held a fetish, leather, or bear title: Free entry b4 11pm)
Friday, February 14, 9PM: Mr. SoCal Leather @ Eagle LA
SATURDAY: FEB 15; LLBEAR at Rich's San Diego. MEN AT WORK Edition.
From Dangilo: Known as So Cal's Largest monthly Levi & Leather Bear night. Over the last year this party has been undergoing an evolution. While other parties, are fun--this one manages to be EPIC on a monthly basis. Rich's has given me a very long leash as creative director of this event. I don't believe in waiting until Folsom or Pride to give the BEARS and adult men a show. LASERS, LIGHTS, LED WALLS, Surprises, Themes, and special guests are standard. This month we are encouraging UNIFORMS, with our MEN AT WORK theme. Gear UP, put out, DANCE hard. This month LUKE ALLEN returns from LA (MeatRack resident), to hit you hard with some aggressive HOUSE. His sets are always eclectic and full of surprise. The dancers are eclectic: Bears, Porn Stars (George Glass & Jeremy Stevens), Muscle (Alex Brazil), Cubs, and Bad Boys. Get your Beef and Beat injection to ward away the monotony of the small bar mentality. Get off the bar stool, and get lost in the night.
Saturday, February 15, 9PM: Mr. Bullet Leather 2014 @ The Bullet Bar
Wednesday, February 19, 2014: FMSD Discussion Group: “Celebrating the Body Electric”! Reilly from “The Body Electric School” will provide information, experience and a hands-on demonstration of the Body Electric curriculum. The Body Electric experience is an exploration into the erotic potential of oneself that could enhance your fetish/BDSM/leather play & lifestyle. A few benefits are: gaining acceptance of yourself as an erotic being, both physically and mentally; discovering ways to develop a more satisfying erotic relationship with others and becoming more aware of spiritual dimensions of erotic explorations.

February 20 to 23, Mr. San Diego Eagle 2014 Contest
Mr. San Diego Eagle 2014 Contest Will Be Bigger Than Ever:
FRIDAY: FEB 22: BEARRACUDA San Diego!
From Dangilo: The San Francisco based juggernaut returns to San Diego. Matt Bearracuda's international bear party lands back at the Marrow (formerly Ruby Room). Whenever, and wherever I gogo this party- I have a blast. The drinks are strong and cheap, the cover is minimal, and it always brings the bears out of hibernation. DJ/Producer. Matt Consola; will be back bringing that San Fran Music vibe. The whole night feels different, a good different that can sometimes be missing from our amazing city.
March 22-30, 2014: Los Angeles Leather Pride
