Saint Louis Pride This Weekend!
Pride weekend is upon us!

Friday - Anyone want to do coffee or something? Maybe hit one of the places along Grand Ave that has outside seating?

Saturday - Pridefest earlier in the day. It opens at 11am so meet up there around that time. If anyone wants to Fursuit they have always been well received at Pridefest. Hang out at Pridefest till we are ready to go. Just remember it’s going to be VERY hot. Please make sure and have money for water or something or bring your own.

Saturday evening - Pride Potluck at the BBH, 6267 Famous. 6pm till whenever. Potluck rules apply....Let me know if you plan to join so we can plan accordingly

Potluck rules - The whole purpose of a Potluck is a gathering where everyone brings a dish to share. The rule of thumb is that what ever you bring should be enough for 4-6 people to each have a decent serving. Look at it like going out got a decent dinner. You would probably spend $15 plus for Chili's or Fudruckers, and you are getting a hellacious amount of food that you will have at, so spend accordingly. Nothing pisses off a host more than a mooch. If you want to come but can't financially afford to get something, talk to the host upfront/privately BEFORE the event about it. Heck if nothing else offer to do dishes, take out the trash or help clean up. Contribute how you can that will help the host!

Sunday - Looks like it’s going to be a steamy one!!! Right now the current weather forecast for Sunday (parade doesn’t start till noon) is 97 with a possible heat index of 115 to 120 with an Excessive Heat Warning. We have been invited by Novak’s which will have a “Beach” theme (you should plan accordingly if you want to be with them) or JJ’s to march with them in the parade. (Bad Dog is not having a parade entry this year from what I have been told) Quite honestly with the time we have to be there for staging (roughly 2 hours prior to kick off at Noon) then waiting for the actual kick off it’s usually a minimum of 4-6 hours you will be on the blacktop with very little shade around. For this reason, I know myself along with a few others are going to watch the parade this year rather than marching. We will probably be by Cheap TRX and hang with our friends there to see the parade. Then after the parade we will go someplace for a nice lunch where it’s COOL!

So Happy Pride Everyone! See you this weekend!

St Louis Pride
Ok Pride Weekend here in Saint Louis is coming up pretty quick! It's June 26 and 27!! http://www.pridestl.org/Pride_Fest.html

What would everyone think of maybe doing a picnic at Tower Grove Park on that Saturday the 26th? We could also do a later in the day picnic/potluck at the house too.

We have several invites for everyone to be in the Pride Parade this year. I will be talking with everyone that has offered to have us with them and make sure we have everything set and post the details hopefully by this weekend. But be assured...we WILL have a place int he parade! After the parade will will hit someplace for lunch and to cool down.

If you have any questions drop me a note otherwise will be posting details as I get them.

Furry Event Rules
Someone asked why we had rules when I posted about a gathering a while back and what they were, so here is the explanation!

Planning events:

It can take a lot of time and effort to put something on not to mention the stress of what feels like trying to heard drunk cats sometimes. Remember when you are planning an event to be aware of other events planned around. Try not and plan something on top of someone else's event unless you talk it over with them first. It's very frustrating when you are planning something only to have someone muddle things up. If at all else possible if 2 want to do events around the same time, try working together to do like a weekend of events. If you plan an event and no one shows up, as the onld saying goes try, try again. Sometimes it falls into place for a great turn out and sometimes it doesn't. Try and remember to keep things as reasonable as possible. If all else fails, ask opinions before planning the event. If doing something public like at a business, mall, park, etc. with today's increased awareness with security and transmittable virus threats, check with the owner/manager/park service director or whatever to make sure things like fursuits are allowed. It's not fun to have security making you take your fursuit head off in front of kids or be seen being escorted out of the premises.

Attending events:

At someone's house or apartment -

When you go to an event, someone has spent time, energy and a lot of the time some money especially if they are having it at their apartment or house. Be a good guest! Some of the things you need to pay close attention to are:

Smoking rules - Can you smoke inside and if not, where can you smoke. Also don't just discard your cigarette butts, put them where they belong

Pet rules - if they have dogs or cats in the house, make sure you don't stand with the door open and make sure you close it tightly if you go in or out. If it's ok to give the animals treats or anything

PDA rules - Unless you are going to an orgy, keep it in your pants. If you are doing something and someone else looks uncomfortable....stop!

Potluck rules - The whole purpose of a Potluck is a gathering where everyone brings a dish to share. The rule of thumb is that what ever you bring should be enough for 4-6 people to each have a decent serving. Look at it like going out got a decent dinner. You would probably spend $15 plus for Chili's or Fudruckers, and you are getting a hellacious amount of food that you will have at, so spend accordingly. Nothing pisses off a host more than a mooch. If you want to come but can't financially afford to get something, talk to the host upfront/provately about it. Heck if nothing else offer to do dishes, take out the trash or help clean up. Contribute how you can that will help the host!

Cleanliness rules - Be a good guest and you make sure you get invited back. Use common sense and common courtesy when at someone's place. Use coasters or a napkin to sit your drink on. Throw your cans, cups, plates, trash away. If you are using "real" plates, glasses, silverware, take them to the kitchen and as the host what they want done with them. You may like living in a cluttered place but that does not give you right to do it as someone else's place. Also ...... take a shower and wear clean clothes.

R.S.V.P.'s - When an invite is given in any form and you plan on attending even if it's a "maybe" let the host know. If you can't make it don't just be a no show, let the house know what you are not able to make it. Don't just drop in unless you know that is ok ahead of time. If a set time is given for things to start try and be there on time or a little early. If you are running late let someone know.

Public Gatherings - Some special things to remember here

PDA's - Use common sense. Most of the time you are mixed company (gay/straight) so not an appropriate place for public displays of affection.

Furry/Sci-Fi/Anime Regalia - Make sure with who over is organizing it fursuits, ears, tails, collars, plush animals etc are OK. Remember not everyone understands Furry or all they know about it is what they saw on CSI. This is not a "Squick the Mundanes" game.

Support the business - Most the time outings take place at restaurants, coffee houses or something similar. Be prepared to buy something. These are businesses, if everyone came and didn't buy something the business would close it's doors. Also don't go and expect someone to cover you or worse yet, they order something and beg someone to pay for it for them. If someone is going to cover you, make arrangements prior - and pay that person back if that is what is supposed to happen!

Be a good customer - If it's at a bar, don't get stupid drunk so the rest of the group has to take care of you. If you have had too much to drink, give someone your keys. Also chances are the person that has organized the outing has a friendly relationship with staff at the business. If you are not sure if something is ok or not, ask! Also don't to things that annoy, hurt, injure your friends or other customers.

Fursuits - Make sure that your suit is acceptable for the event (i.e. nothing scary for a children's event) Always try and change out of public sight and if you have to pop your head, paws, suit please get out of sight as much as possible. Never unsuit in front of kids unless it's an emergency (i.e. overwhelmed with heat or security issue) Seeing someone take fursuit parts off in the open ruins the magic.

Don't make a scene! - Leave the drama for your mamma! If you come to an event and start shit, expect to be asked to leave and not allowed back!

Hopefully this helps and will make for some fun events in the coming months!!

Just remember....it only takes one person not playing by the rules of common decency and etiquette to ruin that event and events in the future for everyone

St Louis Pride this weekend
I have had a few asking what the plans were for Pride this weekend. I'm going to try and get over to the festival probably on Sunday after the parade. and maybe sneak over Saturday afternoon for a while.

I will be working a lot of the weekend at the bar so if anyone wants, here is the schedule of things for there. We will be in the parade with the Bad Dog this year. Fursuits, ears, tails are welcome.

here is the stuff at the bar this weekend


Bad Dog is BURSTING with PRIDE!

Our first PRIDE at our new location is gonna knock your socks (and other clothing) off!

First off Friday

Come out and kick up your boots with your Central Plains Leather SIR 2009 Master Sampson, Leatherboy 2009 pup sparkie. and Community Bootblack 2009 boy blu for the event "Cowboy Up". During the night the CPLSb family will be selling shots, holding a silent auction, and providing live entertainment by Kevin James a local Country singer. Come and join the family Friday June 26th from 8 PM to Midnight at Bad Dogs Bar. Proceeds go to the Central Plains Leather Travel Fund.

You ain't seen nothing yet! The back bar will have it's new name unveiled in a special ceremony. In honor of this we will have our first Bad Dog Fetish Bash!!! This will become a regular happening and during this special event, the "Gear Code" will be enforced for the back bar. You want in? You better be decked out in your best (street legal) Fetish Gear!! Also no perfume or deodorant allowed.

Then on Saturday..

Bad Dog will be hosting our first Pride Cruise-In from 11am - 3pm!! We will be having specials for those arriving on motorcycles including a free lunch for all bikers and prizes! Also anyone that would like can join us on their motorcycles in the parade!

Saturday night -

The Royalty team of the Gateway Gay Rodeo Association, I would like to invite you to the Studio 54 Party on June 27, 2009. This fundraiser will help your host and hostess for the evening Mr. GWGRA 2009 (Gene Cheek) and Miss GWGRA 2009 (Crystal Wolf) raise funds for their chosen charities in our community, Bethany Place, in Belleville, IL and PWA (People With Aids).


We hope you will join us for what’s turning out to be the biggest party of the season, as we take you back to yester year when Disco was king, Studio 54 was the place and every night was a party. Dance the night away to the greatest hits of the disco era with special guest DJ’s from the GC Entertainment Company. There will be 50/50 raffles, Jell-O shots and much more available.


Then stick around for Midnight as we pop the corks on the champagne, hors d'oeuvres are served by some of the sexiest shirtless waiters in town and the prize balloons drop with such door prizes as DVD players, DVD’s, music CD’s, a Leather Candle basket set, T-Shirts, Bar tabs and much, much more. So when the balloons drop from the ceiling, pop them for the ticket inside and match it to see if you won one of the great gifts we have waiting for you.


Doors open at the Bad Dog Bar, 3960 Chouteau, St. Louis, Missouri at 9pm Saturday Jun 27th. Photographers will be on hand for those that would like pictures taken on the red carpet entrance. An information booth will be setup outside with information about the evening and organizational information. Tickets can be purchased at: Bad Dog Bar, the GWGRA Booths at Belleville Pride or St. Louis Pride, or the GWGRA website at www.GWGRA.com.

Plus we will have lots of fun in the rest of the Bad Dog too!

Sunday ....we aren't done yet!!!
