Nights 'til 2AM, Blackouts at 11PM

This is an updated version of the post I put last weekend.


All night time parties in October have been extended until 2AM. This is for the guys who’ve been coming later.  It'll also be lights out at 11PM.  Calling these blackouts.  So Tuesdays and Thursdays are 6PM to 2AM, lights out at 11PM.  Sundays are now 8PM-2AM, blackout also at 11PM.

Tweetless – Post #34

“With the lights out, it’s less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us”

10 years since 9/11.  20 years since the release of “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”  My how time flies.

There are two main reasons I’ve tweeted the orgies for about a year: to keep guys from texting/calling/emailing me during parties to see how it’s going — “Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?” — and because I just really dig being original.  As far as I know, no one had ever tweeted an orgy before. 

But I’m not going to regularly tweet the parties, anymore, at least not for the foreseeable future. 

For one thing, it tends to feel like I’m reporting to someone, like I’m checking in.  That just really isn’t part of my trip.

The other reason is something I’d considered when I first started tweeting them, which is the danger of a negative self-fulfilling prophecy.  If I tweet that it’s a low turnout, early on, most guys who read that are understandably not going to come.  But the first hour’s turnout, good or bad, should not dictate the rest of the night.  The inflow/outflow of guys ought to be more organic and spontaneous, which are qualities I strive to achieve here.

I’m aware that I could use Twitter to manipulate the turnout by stating that there’s a huge number of guys by 9PM, even if there isn’t (if it manages to increase numbers, everyone gains, right?).  I can’t do that.  The very notion of someone coming because I said the place is packed, then arriving to see it isn’t true, is anathema to me.  Can’t do it.  I really hate dealing with liars, as a patron, so I’m not about to become one.  And it really doesn’t fit the head of my parties, which is as little bullshit as possible.  I want honest and cool, which must start with me.

I’ll continue to use Twitter to mention some fun, hot, or interesting occurances, and to let you know that the party’s winding down (or ended), but that’ll probably be it.

For now...

The PEÄK parties have been drawing a large turnout, so we’re adding them to two Sundays in September.  Please check the schedule.  Last September was the busiest month we’ve ever had, so this month ought to be a good one.  Tuesdays and Thursdays will continue to be 6PM – 1AM.
