    I was wondering who would be up for a get-together of RJers at IML this year.

    My suggestion would be to meet at a nearby restaurant early during the event before everyone gets too busy; let's say Saturday for lunch or brunch, but other ideas are welcome. Also, does anyone know a suitable venue within easy walking distance to the event hotel?

    Wow! 112 views and not one reply. People here are so prudish, they'd never admit to going to something like IML.

    I have some other plans for parts of that Memorial Day weekend, but I might be free to meet for the meal. Saturday is already pretty booked, but Friday and Sunday?

    So far, two have emailed me that they're interested. Not exactly a tuberous response, but I hope there will be a few more. As to venue, the suggestions have been Coq d'Or at the Drake Hotel, or Pizzeria Duo. Any other suggestions?

    Is really hardly anyone one going to IML? Or, is everyone's dance card already filled?

    Methinks you will get more replies if you spell out IML and name the city.

    Sure, I'll spell it out for you:

    International Mr. Leather, Chicago. Leather contest, circuit party, leather (and meat) market, big cluster fuck... a couple of thousand attendees from all over the world.

    One day, I'll get to IML. I can't this year.

    Back in 2000 I was in Chicago at the same time as IML. What I saw was hot. It was even hot seeing some of the guys with USMC tattoos.

    It looks like Sunday is best for everyone. We're still looking for a good venue near the host hotel, the Marriott on the Magnificent Mile. If you have any ideas, or want to join us, please let me know.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidOh, is it that IML time of year again?

    The circuit parties, the drugs, the group sex and the tons of bareback sex all laced with leather, water sports, and very oddly and largely shaped sex toys!!! icon_twisted.gif


    Have fun, guys! icon_twisted.gif


    This one time at band camp.....

    Lol... When I was in ninth grade I went through my punk phase, where I wore leather and spikes. And when I came out to my dad a couple years later he said, so that's why you used to wear all that leather. I was beside myself! Here I thought my leather bracelets made me look tough and masculine. Big face palm!

    It looks like lunch on Sunday at noon will work best. We're trying to make a reservation at the Purple Pig. Please let me know if you're planning to join us, I'd like to give them a reasonably accurate head count.

    I'm not a leather guy. I have gone to bear events which occur at the same time as IML. But I'm not much of a bear either.
