SOMA Second Saturdays! Holiday Market

Holiday Market

 

SOMA Second Saturday’s is venturing indoors for our third annual Holiday Market! We are thrilled to announce that we will even have the services of a free shuttle, courtesy of San Francisco Love Tours, which will be making continuous circles through SOMA with stops at some of our beloved LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District venues; including SF Eagle, Azucar Lounge (opens at 3), Zozi’s Loft, Powerhouse (opens at 4), Leather Etc., Mr S Leather and the Lone Start Saloon. 

 

Special Events:

 

Twisted Windows will be providing ambient performances throughout our Holiday Market, filling our space with excitement and awe!

 

Oogie Boogie: A Nightmare Before Christmas Burlesque by Alotta Boutté!

PhotoBooth: Holiday Photos With Santa! We will have an area for photos with Naughty Santa and a few playful elf pups from the Service Pups of San Francisco! You won’t want to miss the opportunity to capture some holiday moments!  

 

Kinky Speed Friending: Join us for two different rounds of Kinky Speed Friending with PsychoKitty at 12:30 and 2:30!

 

Feeling social pressure to find someone to connect with?

We can't promise love, but we can help you with a fun night full of meeting people, a lot of people, fast.

Our purpose is to encourage you to meet new people.

 

Find people with similar kinks as yours.

Find people with whom to explore new kinks.

Find new friends.

Find new people to play with.

People will be separated by appetite, either top or bottom. (Switches can pick a side or wait to see what side is needed more.) And then you will get two minutes with each person and a chance to connect afterward.

 

The afternoon is about meeting people who compliment your kinky appetite, not about identity or gender. The people you meet will be worth meeting even if they aren't your appetite.

1 pm – Shay Tiziano, Ornament Entwined

1:30 pm – Dual Demons, Fire + Ice
