San Francisco, CA - Tuesday, May 25, 2010 - Three of the biggest and most well-known San Francisco businesses – Folsom Street Events, Kink.com, and Steamworks along with bar sponsors Powerhouse, Marlena’s and Truck – are teaming up to produce the hottest party over IML weekend: THE SAN FRANCISCO PARTY. Scheduled for Friday, May 28TH at the IML host hotel (Hyatt Regency) in Crystal Ballrooms B&C from 10:00pm to 2:00am, the massive party will unite over 1,000 leather and fetish enthusiasts for cruising, dancing, and a whole lot of excess. The party is free and open to the public.
“With another incredible year of San Francisco-based events planned, we are going to represent the unabashed sex-positive environment of our city – even if we are in Chicago! We have the best DJ (Sean Greene of End Up, Steamworks), and the sexiest fetish demos from Bound Gods of Kinkmen.com. This is going to be the biggest and best party in the hotel! And, of course, we wish all of the San Francisco contestants – Mr. Lance Holman (Mr. Powerhouse Leather 2010 / Mr. San Francisco Leather 2010), Mr. Gary Rhoades (Mr. Hayes Valley Leather 2010), and Mr. George Schaeffer (Renegade 2010) – the best of luck in the contest,” says Folsom Street Events Executive Director, Demetri Moshoyannis, who is serving as a judge for this year’s contest.
