Aaron Duke's Bon Voyage Dinner. Our brother Aaron is heading off to his new career in Los Angeles. This is our chance to send him off with our love.

 ======= UPCOMING EVENTS=======

From Magnum: Here's FMSD tentative schedule of our Wednesday Night Men's Discussion & Events for April:

Apr 2: Pup Nikita leads more discussion of "puppy play" and the "turn offs" of fetish/leather play.

After the discussion, we will head over to the Eagle and join in on the "Pup Play Night" featuring "Pounce"! A fundraiser with a "big basket" contest w/XXX prizes and much more!

Apr 9: SIR Erik from The Next Generation (TNG) with their active members will lead, share and discuss the challenges and triumphs about young adults staying visible and participating in the San Diego leather/BDSM/kink community.

Apr 16: Papa Tony leads discussion on "navigating challenges in poly/open relationships" including jealousy, conflict and agreements.

It's easy to walk from the meeting to the Redwing!

Afterwards, we'll all stroll over for "Karaoke Nights" at the Redwing Bar & Grill, nearby. This event will regularly happen on the 3rd Wednesday of every month, after our Discussion.  If you haven't tried it, give it a chance. It's a jolly gathering of fun brothers!

Apr 23: Demo/Play Party "Fisting 101" w/Slut Bottom boy Chris" from Club X, who is eager and excited to share his knowledge and experience and strongly encourages audience participation. We want a group of "hungry" bottoms & "eager" tops to assist in this "hands on & in" demo. Our demo/play parties are held at a private residence and it's encouraged to RSVP due to our large attendance and space limitations. RSVP at signmeupforevent

Apr 30: Jon Sommerville leads discussion on "does size matter"? embracing weight, size & body image in the "perfect body" obsession in gay male culture.

Note: All FMSD Wednesday Night Men's Discussions are held on the first, second, third (and sometimes fifth) Wednesday of each month, in the upper classroom of the Mission Gathering Church (3040 Polk Ave San Diego, CA 92104). Please arrive at 6:45pm to allow time to locate parking.

The patio at Redwing is ours for socializing, smoking, eating, drinking, and bootblacking.

They offer a Happy Hour Food Menu, $3 wells, and $3 Domestic Bottled Beer from 4-6PM. Our event is 4-7, so that is great.! :-)
