3. Club SIN -- A new San Francisco treasure

Ok.  Well not REALLY new, just new to INIQUITY's eyes.  Apparently San Francisco has this lesser known jewel of a club happening monthly....

The promoters of SIN are none other than the very same people who brought you SLICK.  Who knew that deep in their naughty little hearts they held a special drop of fetish magic set aside to tantalize the pervy night crowd on a monthly basis?  Several months ago they began a series of clubs called SIN which were to run on the theme of the seven deadly sins, a different sin each month.  Apparently the club ended up gaining a following despite the odd night of the week, Thursdays.  Just like the story of about a bazillion other clubs, there were venue changes and problems with crowd flow.  Nonetheless, the promoters persevered and worked it until they got a Friday night at last, and the tiny but nicely laid out club the RAWHIDE on 7th Street in San Francisco.    It was about time for INIQUITY to investigate.
    We approached the club on a quiet street after finding easy parking.  The doorman checked our ID and the cashier welcomed us.  We entered the RAWHIDE for the first time with the bar to our right and the main dance hall in front of us.  To our pleasant surprise the crowd was about 90% Fetish attired or Fetish-Goth (mostly Fetish-Goth).  A good crowd filled the lower floor, and some excellent Industrial-Trance tunes were playing.  After a while a show started with a fire dancer, followed by a maniacal sermon on greed (that was the night's theme) performed by a Fetish priest onstage.  We then explored up the stairs and found a dungeon / lounge at the top of the first set, with a regular but small crowd of players in there all night long.  Up the second set of stairs to the wonderful walled outdoor area which seemed to be the main place for socializing.  The outdoor upstairs served as the smoking area with plentiful tables and chairs, a rain awning (though the night was clear), and an abundance of space heaters to keep everyone toasty on the slightly chilly night.
After a few hours up in the main social area we returned back downstairs to dance to a more hardcore goth mix, interspersed with some odd birthday requests.  Everyone seemed to enjoy the night and the very relaxed and social atmosphere.  We left by about 1am but the party was still going strong.
    Overall I consider the SIN I discovered that night to be a new jewel in the crown of lesser known fetish clubs.  I would heartily recommend that if you have the second Friday of any month free in San Francisco that you don your Fetish Fashion and head down to SIN for what can only be described as a perfectly fun evening.  :-)

>Dungeon Housecleaner and Leather Conditioning - $ (PAID)
    I have a multi-room dungeon space in Oakland that needs occasional care
from someone who is proficient at leather conditioning (whips, slings,
horse, cuffs, straps, etc) and also needs general housekeeping done on
the dungeon (dust, vacuum, clean mirrors, etc).  Minor exterior pick up
of usual wind-blown trash would also be helpful.
    Work needs doing on weekends (or occasional evenings possible), at least
one day a month.  I'm willing to pay whatever the going rate is for such
jobs and even discuss possible use of the facilities.
    Please email if you are interested, introduce yourself, tell me what you
would charge and what similar experience you have.
7. Wrap Up
Nothin' special, just some thoughts to leave you with until next issue....
(and maybe the INIQUITY password....)
    Ah.  INIQUITY returns at last, at least in an abbreviated form.  The Wicked City / Iniquity / DomDominion party should be an excellent evening, what with all the people coming from out of town for the DomDominion week immediately following.  It should be a spectacular night.  By all means, DRESS UP for the event!  INIQUITY does not open its doors very often, so lets make this a night to remember......
    The password is "Iniquity".
