The mood is turn-of-the-century. The style is extravagant. The bands are Sean Hayes, Wink & Yoni, California Honeydrops, James Caran, Carlette Sue Kay and Rube Waddell. The place is a fabulous turn of the century town near the delta less then 50 miles from San Francisco.
Come join us in this debaucherous fling of FLINGS!
This is a sexy party (not a sex party!) so come be sexy and free in polite, dressed-up company, play dress-up, gorge, gamble, flirt, philander, dance, and sing -- all to your hearts' content, all in the polite company of Sirs and Madams of equal desires, passions, and aspirations, all beautiful, all naughty, all nice, all NIGHT!
Be the God of Yourself and play in fashion and folly. We have the entire hotel (which was once a brothel) for the extravagant aristocracy of the area and the establishment has a reputation to uphold.
Dress up for the occasion! The period of the dress is less important than the sexiness and extravagance of the attire. Think tomfoolery, absurdity, sexiness and extravagance. There will be an 18th century style fashion court that will pass judgment on you so be prepared. You could be sentenced for poor taste, debauchery, preposterousness, foolery, your sexy behavior or philanderous behavior.
There is also a full bar with a beer menu featuring several hundred delicious beers from around the World--pretty much all of my favorite Belgium beers are on their menu!
Your under-attire may be more important than your outerwear! There will be a costume room with many, many options, so prepare to get dressed, undressed and redressed. This party features fashion from top to bottom inside and out--sexy, seductive, sultry and silly all play a role in the role you play.
Get ready for a full 24 hours of fun, for the party will go from sundown to sundown. We will feast, dance and flirt in fashion and folly at this fling of flings, not to be missed! We will have the entire hotel for our pleasure while we philander throughout the night into the wee hours of the morning, and beyond.
The event is less than 50 miles east of San Francisco. Directions and times will be sent before the event to the people who make reservations. We are also renting several rooms for the following night to encourage people to recover there the next day before going home.
Finally, we are renting several rooms for the following night so that people will not have to rush home!
