An Upcoming Event

For a blog called, "Spanking Minnesota", I honestly have no idea how many Minnesotans actually stop by. I can think of--oh--maybe 4. Beyond that, it's anybody's guess.

So, do me a favor: if you read this and live in Minnesota, leave a comment to this post. Leave it anonymously if you like. It doesn't have to be a big, long paragraph with your life story (unless, of course, you want to!). Just a quick, "Hi, I'm in Minnesota" will suffice. It's just one of those things I've been thinking about.

If you DO live in Minnesota, the following may be of interest to you. Call it my PSA (Public Service Announcement) for the day:

Leather Pride is sneaking up on us! June 19-28, 2009 is a week-long celebration of Leather Pride (in parallel to Pride Week).

During this week, there are multiple events; including a parade, information booths, poetry readings, Floggapaloza and many, many more!

Black and Blue and Red all Over is June 21, 2009. This is a spanking workshop being offered to the community, and what better day to see it? Father's Day! Beginning at 1:00pm at Patrick's Cabaret in Mpls, come see 4 speakers put their own twist on traditional and not-so-traditional, spanking techniques. Learn about tools and toys, safety and have the opportunity to see some VERY unique role play.

An added bonus? Patrick's recently (very recently, like a WEEK ago) installed air conditioning!!

How much is all this excitement? If you have a Leather Pride Dog Tag??? $5 gets you in the door. No tag? Really? Then you pay $8 Buy tickets in advance, or at the door.

These people are too busy to attend, but if you live in Minnesota, I hope you consider going.

Count me as one from Minne-snow-ta.


Radha said...

I'm all full of Minnesota nice, but not too much or else the Lord Krishna would have nothing to spank me for! I love the PSA. Keep them coming so that I can hear about the local scene!

I'm from Minnesota! I enjoy reading your blog and I'm glad that you put Minnesota on the 'spanking map' so-to-speak.

I'll probably show your 'public service announcement' to my lovely girlfriend and see if I can bribe her to going with me. She's not big into spanking, but she's okay with receiving them from time to time.

Thanks again for the blog and post.

I'm a former Minnesotan. :) I just moved (even farther north for some crazy reason!) to Canada. Sometimes I miss MN, but it's really not too different up here with all the crazy Canucks. ;)

Thanks for mentioning local MN stuff from time to time and keeping me in touch.

I'm from Minnesota.

I also ask that you continue the PSAs listing any local events. Good job!

Adina said...

Thanks for posting this, Doc Ken! I am in St. Paul, and I am a spanko. I'm really glad there are other locals into spanking and reading your blog! Someday, I'd like to meet all of you.

I am a Minneapolis-ian and just stumbled upon your blog. I too would appreciate notices about local events. So far, the weekly Bondage-a-Go-go at Ground Zero is the only spanking related event I have found since I moved here. Great for couples, but as I am recently single, not ideal to meet people.

Dr. Ken said...

Thomas--consider yourself counted!

Radha--Hi there, Spanky Spice. Trust me--Lord Krishna will always be able to find something to spank you for, you lucky girl, you!
Glad y9u like the PSA. If people will send them to me, I'll be happy to put them up.

Anonymous--Good to hear from you. I've been trying to put Minnesota on the spanking map for years. I hope this blog is accomplishing that to some extent. Here's hoping your girlfriend will go with you to the event--nothing like two people learning together, and it may help increase her interest in spanking!

Ann--a former Minnesotan? You should be spanked for moving away! :-)

Kim--good to hear from you, too. I'll do what I can in regard to the PSAs.

Jflame--thanks for adding me to the blog roll. Too bad you're not from Minnesota--I might get to meet you if you were! As it is, best I can do is wave, "Hi!"

Adina--good to see your comment. Thanks for drawing my attention to the blurb to begin with! If you learn of any other events related to spanking and in Minnesota, let me know. I'll be happy to post them, too. I should probably write a post announcing that....

Matster--I'll do what I can!

Radha said...

Spanky spice! Tee Hee! That's fun! I like it!


Dr. Ken said...

Radha--congratulations, then, you've officially become the missing Spice Girl that they always needed.
Now, go to Lord Krishna and sing, "I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want...."
