So, Derek and I will be at the TitanMen/LeaterPost booth mid days on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Will be there no earlier than 11:30 and out by 13:00 on Saturday, but will probably stay past that on Friday and Sunday. You can bet we'll be having some fun at the booth.
Friday night will find us at the San Francisco / Folsom Prison Release Party. We will connect with the crew that produce Folsom Street Fair and be playing at the Power House when we're in San Francisco. It's an open party so Derek and I want to invite all of our friends and family that are in town to join us in the Crystal Ballroom at the host hotel.
Saturday, Derek and I have been asked to present at the Grabby's. We'll be there with the crew from Titan and I'm looking forward to spending some time with Brian and Paul. I'm sure Dean will be busy with his co-hosting duties, but it will be good to catch up with Diesel and Rick. Fear is up for Best Fetish Extreme Video and Breakers is nominated for Best All-Sex Video so I have a vested interest in at least two of the awards. While our presence may be delayed, we're hopeful things at the Grabby's will be well enough organized to grant Derek and I a chance to join our brothers in the Chicago Hellfire Club at the Annual Cocktail Party. Personally, I'm more concerned about having the energy and opportunity to play at the clubhouse Saturday night.
On Sunday at the IML Victory Party at the House of Blues, Derek and I are scheduled to perform a demo. I'm still not sure what we'll be demonstrating but if logistics permit, we'd like to reprise the dynamic suspension scene we've been working on this year.
Side Bar: We're performing at the House of Blues. How cool is that?
In addition to the above, Derek and I have co-authored the first in what should be and series of columns for
