Upcoming Events for FetishMen

I'll be guest-hosting this Sunday's Cigars & Boots event on the patio at the Redwing, since Mr. California Leather Sir 2010 Miles B. will be out of town judging the SouthWest LeatherSIR/Leatherboy contest in Phoenix.

As always, if you are dedicated to a better community, please show up one hour early (at 4PM) for that event.  Here's why:

The Mr. San Diego Leather contest is coming up, 2-1/2 weeks from now, and any men who are thinking of running for the title would be well-advised to show up, and to look closely at the individuals all around you.  These folks are your support-system. They are the kind of people who say that they will do something, and then they will actually DO it. The crowd that has been showing up a hour early for this event, month after month, are the exact opposite of Internet Flakes. Any man of integrity and idealism would be proud to stand a bit taller, and puff his chest out a bit more, just to fit in with such a magnificent assembly.

Think of that "Trust Exercise" where you fall backward, and people catch you. Somebody who is beginning to take the scary, new risk of being visibly committed to a better community should never, ever have to face that step alone. There are many of us who have been there, and if we all work together, then our newest brothers will gain courage, learn quickly, and hit the ground running without colliding with too many trees.

In regard to San Diego Leather Pride itself, I predict a massive turnout, based on recent history. FetishMen have been eager to support fetiish-oriented events! That's why I'll be ramping back my enthusiasms for a bit; I'll be focusing like a laser on events that are specific to leather, kink and fetish. I'm learning from every event, and adjusting the plans so that the quality, quantity and level of satisfaction continue to rise.

-=-=-=-=- UPCOMING EVENTS -=-=-=-=-

Wednesday, March 2, 9PM: PUPPY NIGHT at the Eagle, hosted by Pup DragZ and San Diego Puppy Play (SDPP). First Wednesday of each month.

Friday, March 4, 7PM: SDLOG monthly educational meeting: Temporary Piercing - Presented by Mike Underwood and Bryan Teague,  American Leather Boy 2010,  Mr. San Diego Leather 2009.

Saturday, March 5, 9PM-2AM; BearNight Dance at Numbers. $5 cover. I mention this because 1) I liked it last month, and 2) I signed up a ton of new members there, many of them in some form of leather gear. Chris is a superb host (he has the identical Myers-Briggs ENFP personality type that I do), and the dance-party is a massive success. Let's dance!

Sunday, March 6th, 5-8PM: CIGARS & BOOTS at Redwing, hosted by California LeatherSir Miles B. First Sunday of each month. It's ideal weather for it, out on the patio at Redwing. Unbelievably congenial crowd… Like nothing you've ever seen. The perfect Gentlemen's Club vibe. You'd think these men have been best friends for decades, and there's room for more, so come on over and mingle freely...

Friday, March 11, 9PM-1AM: DRESS IT UP/STRIP IT DOWN at the Eagle. This has become the biggest fetishmen event in San Diego every month!  Approximately 300 men come cycling through the bar during the course of this event on the second Friday of each month, and many of us are dressed (or undressed) to impress!  Here are a few reviews, if you haven't been to one yet.  This month's spotlight will be on Men In Kilts. You'll be encouraged to bring that kilt out of deep storage and wear it in public with manly pride! That'll definitely be worth a kick-ass group photo as well. Here are the pictures from October and February. Notice how HAPPY everybody is. You deserve to be that happy too.

There are two reasonably-local BIG fetishmen events near San Diego every year - LA Leather in late May and Palm Springs Leather Pride on the second weekend in November (to avoid the heat). These are both well-worth making travel plans for, even for a single day-trip. If you plan to behave in a very um, SINGLE sort of way, this is your golden opportunity!

April 16-17; Phoenix Pride

May 21-22; Long Beach Pride

- If you're going to International Mr. Leather 2011 weekend in late May in Chicago, NOW would be a really good time to make sure that your travel and lodging plans are completed.

June 10-12; Los Angeles Pride

June 25-26; San Francisco Pride

July 15-17, San Diego Pride 

July 28-30; International Leather Sir/boy/Community Boot Black in San Francisco, leading into...
