I'm starting a new system: One weekly "Social Column" email, and one "Upcoming Events" email, with the overall goal of cutting down on the number of messages going out on the list.
The next big event that will be attracting a lot of out-of-towners to San Diego will be a week and a half from now. The deadline for contestants for the California Leather Sir/boy, Bootblack and Puppy Contest has been moved to June 12th. I'm expecting to host as many as seven visitors from other cities in my home that weekend. It's a big deal - we don't get statewide events like this very often, so don't miss it. The actual contest itself is at Queen Bee's, which is within walking-distance of the Eagle.. Right between the Old Mill Cafe and where Bacchus House used to be.

* Events marked with an asterisk are mixed male/female events, usually hosted by Club X, which is a very large, very reputable and very wonderful pansexual club in San Diego. FMSD is focused on gay-male interests, always and forever, but we also support all other local kinky groups that may attract some of our members. Everybody can use some brotherhood!
Friday, June 10, 9PM-1AM: DRESS IT UP/STRIP IT DOWN at the Eagle; 2nd Friday of each month. This has become the biggest fetishmen's event in San Diego every month! It's the nicest, friendliest crowd you'll see at a leather bar. Here are a few reviews, if you haven't been to one yet. This month's theme is HARNESSES, so please wear one if you've got it. I'll be taking a group photo at around 11PM. Here are some pictures from October, February, March and April. Notice how HAPPY everybody is. You deserve to be that happy too.
