Are you turned on by the look, smell or feel of leather? You may be one of this city's LeatherMen!

Each monthly leather night has a slightly different focus - boots, uniforms, hankies, locker room / sportsgear, leather bears, etc. as well as contests and prize draws. A leather / uniform / fetish dress code is encouraged (check LocalEvents for more details) but not required.
