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.
