Progressive Dinner to Kick Off Leather Week 2017
Please join the SF Bay Area Leather Alliance for the annual Alden Spafford Progressive Dinner, Saturday September 16th, as we kick off SF Leather Week 2017.
What is a progressive dinner? At each location you will enjoy a new course (soup, salad, entree, etc.) provided and served by members of our organizations and our board of directors. Vegetarian options will be available at each stop.
In addition to a tasty meal, you will enjoy a social event with kinky individuals in a casual environment, a tour of SOMA kink businesses, and an opportunity to learn about — and meet the members of — the Leather Alliance and its organizations.
Who was Alden Spafford? He was a long-time core volunteer with many Leather Community groups, including the InterClub Fund, the SF Leather Forum, and the Satyrs MC. Accordingly, funds raised by this event will support the annual Leather Alliance community volunteer party.
Check-in and social hour begins at 4:00 p.m. at SF Catalyst (1060 Folsom Street), before we move to our next location at 5:00 p.m. The event ends by 9:00 p.m.

Alliance Organizations Celebrate Leather Week
Each year the Leather Alliance’s Progressive Dinner brings all of its member organizations together for a gala fundraising feast, in advance of the city-wide “Leather Week” that precedes the famous Folsom Street Fair.
Many of those individual organizations and community groups also have their own special events around this time. This page is just a “shout out” about some of them. Please refer to the linked pages for authoritative info on locations, times, prices and other details.
