event is a mix of fetish, exotica and erotica combining rare erotic art, live music, burlesque performances, sideshow performances and more. It takes place in Bert's Warehouse Theatre in Eastern Market where they transform the place into an exotic wonderland. There are so many interesting things going on throughout the night. There is even a free buffet at midnight, the G Spot lounge with DJ Alexi and the opportunity to get a red carpet photo while you're decked out in your sexiest fetish outfit. Speaking of outfit, there is a dress code for the Ball. No street clothes (jeans, sneakers, etc.) are allowed. They encourage fetish attire, black pants, evening gowns, latex, and anything out of the ordinary. I can't think of too many places where latex outfits are on the same side of the dress code as evening gowns! If you don't have anything to wear, just head to Noir Leather in Royal Oak where you'll have plenty of fun options to choose from.
Tickets for the Ball are $35 and are available here or at the door. You do have to be at least 18 to get in, due to the nature of the evening of course. The whole thing starts at 8 p.m. and there will be free parking available. Saturday promises to be 'an elegant night of stimulating, seductive, alluring pleasure.' Why on earth would anyone miss out on that?
