You're cordially invited to the Birthday Celebration of Mistress Tyler & Richard A.D. (that's me).


'Tis the season, so come out & play with two of the scene's most dedicated Capricorns!
 

Indeed, it's a perfect time to wind down from the holidays as we gear up for New Year's. So let's gather good friends old & new for a few cocktails, an affirmation of friendship, & a fun night out.  

Ariel of DC TNG was kind enough to host a special happy hour in celebration of our joint birthdays. So we'd like to thank him for putting this together, & we'll look forward to see you out!  

Party time is scheduled for Tuesday, December 29th from 6:30pm to sometime around 11pm.  

We'll be at Lounge 201 on Capitol Hill (201 Mass Ave. NE DC): just 2 blocks from Union Station. Please join us in the VIP Lounge all the way to the back of the club. We'll have the whole space to ourselves, drinks specials will run all night, & good food if you need a bite!

We'll look forward to seeing you!

With the holidays now upon us the season begins to focus more on friends, family, & loved ones. It's a time to offer a glance at days gone by while we look to what the future may hold. In that, it's been a very good year. We've consistently seen new life breathing into every corner of the overall scene & this has continued as an ongoing trend.

As to The Metro, we've successfully gained a strong degree of positive exposure & are now moving into a new phase of more progressive efforts. It's our intention to put DC firmly on the map so it can finally gain the recognition it deserves (offering a vibrant & diverse culture that reaches far past the image of a city filled with pinstripe suits).

Indeed, this past weekend Marquis America & Erik Von Gutenberg commemorated the inaugural publication of Von Gutenberg Magazine. With an international reach, top notch material, & a successful premier, this offers a great new addition to the select pantheon of alternative media.

But even more, it also features a new look at DC & the surrounding area. Presented under Lifestyle News is a short but significant article featuring the DC Scene & Metro Underground (by Richard A.D). This is the first step in an ongoing effort to achieve national & international exposure for all that we have to offer.

But locally, we still need your help…

Viral marketing has taken hold like nothing else & we can only do so much. So if you belong to Facebook, Twitter, any post-boards or online journals (perhaps have a website of your own), & if you can offer us a post & help spread the word then anything you could do would be DEEPLY APPRECIATED. The more we can get the word out, the more it will help spread the news for what's happening in the scene, & the more it will help the various venues to grow & prosper. In the end, such efforts help everyone & we all benefit as a result.

To which, the full calendar for the rest of December is up! We've also posted major events for both the regional & national stage for all of 2010. News & Notes have also been updated for the year ending 2009.

Please check it out: http://www.TheMetroUnderground.com

On a more personal note, Ariel of DC TNG was kind enough to host a special happy hour to celebrate the combined birthdays of Mistress Tyler & myself (Richard A.D). I'd like to offer a personal invitation for you to join us & meet some of the scene's most dedicated players! We'll be in the executive suite in the back of Lounge 201 (201 Mass Ave. NE DC). The event is scheduled for Tuesday, December 29th & is planned to run from approximately 7pm-11ish.

May your holiday season be filled with love, health, & prosperity for all you hold dear.

Since October is one of the busiest months of the year, it made sense to split our normal offering into an early installment, & this special addition to cover the later weeks & Halloween…

If you missed it, Capitol Punishment provided an absolutely awesome night for the scene. Held in the elegance of Ultra Bar, it drew a truly magnificent crowd who played, partied, & danced all night long. Indeed, an incredible line-up of top DJ's offered a high level of energy to keep the dance floors buzzing, while top performers, go go's, models, & an array of luscious fashion provided just the right blend of entertainment & intrigue to balance out the evening.

And while the main show went on downstairs, up on the second level a beautiful crowd of scenesters mixed, mingled, & had a great time in the well equipped play space provided by DXS & SLYX. All in all, it was a fantastic night & a good time had by all.

We'd like to thank everyone who made it out, & EVERYONE who worked so hard to make it a night of pure magic. Indeed, I'd like to personally thank model Nicotine for putting her heart & soul into creating such a fabulous event & for making The Metro such a key player. Planning has already begun for 2010, so we'll look forward to seeing you next year!

In the meantime, we want to send along a few notes for the rest of the October Season…

Offering the very best in Bartending, Food Service, & Private Party Assistance, The Private Pro's are available for literally 'any' venue & 'every' type of party (serving DC, MD, N.Va, &  Baltimore).

If you're up for a road trip then there's DragonCon in Atlanta & Montreal Fetish Weekend in Canada. But right down the road in Silver Spring, MTTA will also be hosting the Master/slave Conference - a pansexual gathering of kinksters in the scene.

Interested in something a bit more mainstream (maybe even family oriented)?  The Virginia Scottish Games Festival celebrates the celtic heritage in Great Plains, Va. While the DC Blues Festival offers up national talent right in the Nation's Capitol.  Maybe take a Friday Margarita Cruise along the Potomac with Pro's in the City.

In the meantime, don't miss a few select possibilities tonight to kick off the weekend…

Dunkelheit offers Dark-Euro-rhythm & an intimate crowd at Asefu (1920 9th St. NW DC): $5 cover. Right down the street the Liberation Dance Party carries on with a more eclectic mix of music at DC9. While Apex offers an all ladies dance night with GLOSS & a special gender bending show by the DC Kings.  

In Baltimore, Sugar (Baltimore's Premier Boutique) hosts First Fridays in Hampden. While further north, Hanover TNG hosts its bi-monthly happy hour & The Pleasure Garden Club holds its month couples & singles party in Philly. Closer in, Black Rose holds their Dungeon 101 Newbie Night at The Crucible.

But the party is just getting started as Saturday brings a number of great possibilities.

- Drac's Ball hosts Project Pitchfork Live at Shampoo nightclub in Philadelphia.          
- Elektroschock closes out the summer with one of Baltimore's best alt nights.
- Starz holds their monthly club night at The Crucible.

Looking something a bit more "underground?"  DC TNG presents "Kink Playground & Schoolgirl Celebration" at Judy's Dungeon. It's that time boys & girls, so get ready for school with one of the scene's most incredible underground events. Open bar, cookout, a great crowd of fellow kinksters, the incredible elegance of Judy's, & even a moonbounce for the kids! Well, the big kids anyway.

And if you're interested in hanging with the boys, then Code offers area's newest addition to the all male fetish scene. To be held the first Saturday of each month at EFN Lounge (formally Be Bar: 1318 9th St. NW DC). it's focused toward those into Latex, Leather, Uniform, Gear, & Kink/Fetish with an orientation to the city's younger TNG Crowd.

A special announcement for Sunday: Please Note that VolGothic Sunday will NOT be held on Sunday the 6th. In order to accommodate Labor Day Weekend Angel's Rock Bar has moved the date back to September 13th.

What then lies ahead for the rest of the week?

Tue 8th - Project Pitchfork plays live at Fallout in Richmond. 
             - DC TNG holds detention at Lounge 201 (201 Mass Ave. NE DC).
             - Black Rose holds BDSM classes at The Hyatt Regency.

Wed 9th - Psyclon Nine & Imperative Reaction play live @ Club Liv (11th & U St)

16th-24th - Dark Odyssey's Summer Camp:  just not for kids...  ;-)

Sun 13th - VolGothic Sunday Returns:  Hosted in the expansive & elegant Angel's Rock Bar in Baltimore's Power Plant Live (& fear not, it's Sunday so they have the whole complex to themselves), Volgothic provides one of the area's best venues for the alternative club circuit. Indeed, with top DJ's, incredible surroundings, & a great crowd that's been building with each passing week, they've already come into their own as a player in the scene. Doors at 9pm. Cover is $5.

Also, a few notes of key interest…

Mark your calendars!  Oct 11th marks DC's Ultimate Fetish Ball & Alternative Dance Night, Capitol Punishment.  Scheduled for Sunday night on Columbus Day Weekend, this is an event you won't want to miss. Last year brought an affair of opulence, elegance, & sheer extravagance. This year is shaping up to be even bigger than before... 

And since you'll want to look fabulous, check out Peacock Blue Design Studio as Mistress of Design Feisty Diva honors her mother with a special "Purple Sale" (proceeds are to be donated to benefit research for Pancreatic Cancer). www.peacock-blue.com

It seems that the scene has witnessed a true resurgence as of late…

Indeed, this new found revival appears to carry a very real sense of possibility & a feeling of anticipation for what the future may hold. Like the phoenix rising from a period that was caught in relative obscurity, there seems to be a new level of stature that's beginning to quench the thirst of many & usher in a new era.

Often as seasonal heat hits a high note & people hit the road for one last beach break, August usually ushers in the dog days of summer & a bit of a lull in the annual calendar. But plan your weekends well, for there's a great deal happening in the coming month & if you'll still be in town then you won't want to miss out…
