Leather pride week

Yeah, this little shindig definitely needed its own entry as well. Beware, though I have no intention of being explicit, leather pride is not necessarily appropriate dinner table discussion for all. Now, the highlights.

Although the 100 degree weather might make leather week feel a little more like a hamburger grillfest, nevertheless, those with real pride will endure the sweat and meaty feeling. It may even work to the advantage of some.

Events have already begun but the official kickoff is tomorrow nights party, the 6th Annual Leather, Feathers & Fur Fetish Ball at the Melody Ball Room (615 SE Alder St) 8p 1a $12 advance, $15 door. Saturday has the usual weekend fare and auction (no, I have no idea what will be on auction but Im guessing several Tom of Finland prints?). Sunday however, seems to have a rather interesting leather tasting event. No word on whether kinky vegans will be hosting their own vinyl tasting

The week continues with the introduction of lace, movies, women events, frat parties, bears, beers, brunches, barbeques and potlucks. (My but havent we worked up an appetite?) But the finale will be next Saturdays (the 13th that is) Mr. & Ms. Oregon State Leather 2004 Contest at Embers (10 NW Broadway) $10 door. Doors at 6p, show 7 9p.
