|| Hello Freaky Farkers,
A couple of years ago, some of us were kicking around the idea of having a Fark Subculture Ball for those of us with, ahem, alternative lifestyles. I did some checking around, and there's a club called The Castle in Ybor City, FL (Tampa metro area) that would suit our needs. The dungeon can be rented out for private parties, so I wanted to post this to see if there would be enough interest before contacting The Castle staff for details.
If anyone's interested, you can reach me at glamazondommeoohaycom. Here's the link to The Castle's website: http://castleybor.com/
Hope to hear from you soon! I'll post updates in the thread.
Great response! Here are some answers to FAQ in the thread:
-- My idea for this was a fun celebration for Farkers from non-mainstream subcultures. I know from participating on the site for the last 9 years, a lot of us are Bronies/Pegasisters, Steampunk enthusiasts, Trekkies, Furries, Dominants/submissives, etc. and I thought that this would be a great way for us all to get together.
-- You don't have to participate in any BDSM activity or dress like a dominatrix if you don't want to (the saying in the lifestyle is "Safe, Sane, Consensual"). There might not even be any, depending on the mood.
-- Since it IS a Ball (i.e., formal event with dancing and liquor), you will be expected to come in something other than jeans and a t-shirt. Steampunk, dieselpunk, Victorian goth evening wear, etc. are all highly encouraged. Use your imagination, just make sure that nipples, breasts, genitals and buttocks are covered.
-- Bronies AND Furries are welcome. Furries, please don't wear the "mascot" style fursuit as those things creep people the hell out.
-- Yes, The Castle is a goth/alternative bar, but if you check out the website you'll see that they host a lot of events for lots of different subcultures (see the "Star Wars Night" post upthread).
-- Did I mention that there would be booze?
***UPDATE 2, 3/5/14***
Name changed to "Fark Subculture Ball" due to objections from fellow Farkers that their preferred subculture is not a "fetish."
Also, since we're still in the planning stages for this, I'm open to suggestions. EIP. Thanks!
