Announcing the 4th Annual DC Forum Lunch Get-Together Weekend - January 17-19, 2014

With all the questions on the forum, and all the PMs and texts I have been receiving, I guess I had better go ahead and at least officially announce the 4th annual DC Forum Luncheon. Trust me, I had no idea when I first arranged this little party in 2011 that it would still be going on. But here we go again. Round #4.

 

As it has been done before, this will be done on the weekend that the MidAtlantic Leather (MAL) weekend will be occurring so if you have an interest in that event, you might want to check it out. Information is available at http://www.leatherweekend.com

 

As of now, there are 2 planned events to meet with other forum members. HOWEVER I am still working on a couple of other ideas that I should be able to announce in the next couple of weeks. There will be other events. I can guarantee you that. But as of now, the first get together will be Saturday evening, January 18, starting about 9 pm at Ziegfeld’s/Secrets. Both a gay bar with go-go boys upstairs and drag shows downstairs, there’s certainly enough to keep us entertained. As well as the chance to talk and get to meet other forum members. And you never can tell when you might find a go-go boy to take home to your husband (right, Ace? :) )

 

The main get-together will be lunch/brunch at Annie’s Paramount Steak House on Sunday, January 19. Officially, we will be starting at 1130. However, if past is prologue, people will start gathering about 11 for a drink and a chance to talk. Given the number of confirmed or likely attendees even now, I think we will be able to be in the upstairs room this year, which will give us a bit more privacy. But it is always a great meal, with even better company.

I am looking to add events for both Friday evening and Sunday evening, so check back here to see what else is being added. I have 4 or 5 other ideas so it is more a matter of deciding what to do. These will be announced within the next couple of weeks. But count on something both Friday evening and Sunday evening as well.

 

For members coming from out of town, I will attempt to contact Kimpton Hotels tomorrow to ask about the possibility of getting a group discount for a block of rooms at the Hotel George, which is a block away from MAL. As of now, I have already from enough people to know that about 8 rooms would be needed, so getting to 10 seems entirely possible. But hope to know more by tomorrow evening. A few of us stayed at the George last year and we were treated like royalty. It’s a Kimpton, so what else would you expect (my favorite LGBT hotel chain). It’s only a block to the craziness that is MAL, but much quieter (unless you make your own party). Of course, if you want to stay where all the action is, MAL HQ is at the Hyatt Regency. You would need to book that through http://www.leatherweekend.com. But check back tomorrow for information on booking at the George. If you are interested in staying at the George, please send me a PM. The sooner the better.

 

As far as what to expect as far as attendance, the first year we had about 15 total attendees (if my memory is right). The second year we were at 22. Last year we had 32 attending (16 escorts, 16 non-escorts). And as of now, with this just being the initial, official announcement, I already have confirmation from 15 escorts. I have confirmation of 10 non-escorts (and have yet to officially hear from any DC area resident so we know that will grow considerably). In all likelihood, it will end up at 40 or more attendees this year. I will let everyone officially announce their own attendance, but the names I have heard, both on the escort and client side make me feel like a little kid who knows Santa has already gotten him everything, but knows there is a lot more great stuff coming too. This is going to be amazing.

 

We are looking forward to seeing everyone in DC (that’s right, once again my partner is helping me to organize this thing). If anyone has any questions, please leave a message here on the thread or PM me. Make sure you check back here regularly, especially the next couple of weeks as I finalize the rest of the events and get info on the hotel.

 

For those of you who have never attended, this really is a great chance for clients to meet escorts that they would never meet otherwise and for escorts to meet clients who might become long-time clients. Before last year’s event I hadn’t hired anyone new in well over a year. There are now several escorts I have seen multiple times myself, simply because they came to the luncheon. And I know that scenario has played out over and over again. It really is a win-win for both clients and escorts alike. Oh, and it’s just a lot of fun too.

 

The only confirmation I will actually need will be for the luncheon. Most other events, it will be just show up if you are interested. Come to some events, come to all. Whatever you are interested in.

 

We’re looking forward to seeing old acquaintances and making new friends. If I can answer any question at all, please feel free to get hold of me. Hope to see you all in DC.

Lee

Let's hope another party of complete strangers gets seated with us again. It made for a fun time (for us, anyway).

 

LOL! ...and they were sitting next to me. Imagine my answer to their query "What's going on here?" :D

EVERYONE ENJOY!!!!!!

 

To those who have participated in the past, I'm sure you are counting the days.

 

To those who have not attended, get ready for a fabulous (UNBELIEVABLE) time.

 

LBT is a great host and organizer who has such a variety of "interesting" weekend activities to please all attendees to choose from Organized but with free choice of how to spend your time. Don't worry about activities. LBT constantly updates schedules in more than enough time for each attendee to make his personal choices

 

HAVE FUN!!!!!

HOTEL INFORMATION

 

I spoke with Kimpton Group Sales today about discounts for a block of rooms at the Hotel George. I found out that for the size of our group, we would do just as well using their Red Ribbon Campaign discount. If you are not familiar with Kimpton and the Red Ribbon Campaign, it is a Kimpton Program that provides a 15% discount to the LGBT community. In addition to the discount, Kimpton also makes a $10/night donation to a local HIV charity. In DC the donation goes to the Whitman-Walker Clinic (for a list of the recipient in other cities, see the list at http://www.kimptonhotels.com/kimpton-cares/red-ribbon.aspx). This program is good all year round. The link below will show the Red Ribbon Campaign code and for the Hotel George, but any time you want to book a Kimpton Hotel, all you need to do is include the RRC rate code and the Red Ribbon Campaign rate will show up. Just remember to change the dates.

One additonal thing: if you do not belong to the Kimpton In Touch Loyalty Program, you will want to join. There are several nice perks immediately available. First is that wi-fi will be free if you are an In Touch member. The other is that you get a $10/stay credit to raid the mini-bar or hotel bar. It's a couple little snacks, right? Info on the In Touch Program is on the Kimpton web page.

 

So hopefully that will give you the information you need. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to PM me. I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

I had an amazing time last year. I can not wait for this year. I look forward to meeting everyone I had the joy of meeting last year as well as hopefully meeting some new faces as well! Secrets was a completely different experience for me, but fun non the less! See y'all there!

I do believe I was last at this event in 2011, and boy do I remember the Eagle. What a shindig you can pull together, Lee. Count me in!!!!!! I look forward to meeting some of the new gents from the forum since my retirement and come back as well as my Big Brother Ace. I also see that there are quite a few other escorts I have met I am looking forward to getting back in touch with. Lee, you always not just thoughtfully plan, but absolutely blow out these events and I am looking forward to seeing what you have in store for us. I think I know of one surprise you may "bring to the table" ... I hope there is a record attendance for this event and again, I look forward to meeting some new faces.

For all those recent confirmations: Dane, Hunter, Keenan, Dave, Zach, Steven and Ace. Plus from the other thread about today's coverboy: Steven Ponce, Mike Bender, Antton Harri, Gustavo Brazil (and 2 boyfriends -- Jaris Baines and Romeo). I'm assuming the good Mr. Eisenhower is in. Plus other confirmations made to me (which I will let them make the formal announcments here). So as of now, we sit at 18 escorts already. And already at 11 confirmed clients, of whom only myself, my partner, and countryboywny are announced (I feel so lonely). And no confirmations from anyone in DC yet. So 30 effectively already. Just wow. So especially to the clients: this is going to be an incredible chance to meet some amazing escorts I can guarantee you wouldn't be able to meet otherwise. You will NOT want to miss this chance. And one surprise guest I am really thrilled is going to be there. Someone I haven't seen in a couple of years.

 

Events for Friday night and Sunday night are coming into line and will be announced shortly. So stay tuned.

Lee

Hey Lee,

This weekend is on my calendar, so hope to be there. I will be able to confirm in early January. Hoping to squeeze some business in on this trip in addition to the fun. I guess I need to hit the gym and do a few more things between now and then to be presentable... LOL... thanks for making all these arrangements, and as I said, I do hope to be there and have blocked out these dates in my calendar.

I'm so totally there and bringing at least one escort-buddy from NYC with me!

Last year it was such a great time and so many awesome new friendships were made at the event. It's not-to-be-missed with some truly wonderful peops.

And for the record the cute, multi-racial couple with aging father in tow were perfectly delighted to be seated with us hookers and johns.

Being pelted with eggs I don't know nuthin' about but I did get shurgged by Daves' eggs for an audience last year so WHO KNOWS what could possibly happen this year! ;-)

Looking forward to it and thanks to our LBT for organizing. Big Kiss to you. :o

LBT - Don't want you to feel lonely. I am making my hotel reservations today, and am looking forward to a great weekend. I've heard amazing things about past weekends, and since I already know you are an incredible host, I'm looking forward to great events and many surprises...
