Fetish Formal: Shop Highlight

The January Shop

At the Weekly Alibi's Inaugural Fetish Formal, not only will you be able to enjoy the sights we've created to incite and delight you while you meander through the fabulous crowd, but we will also have some featured vendors for you to find something special to take home.

The January Shop was opened in 2013 to fill two gaps in the BDSM toy market: vegan toys, and toys that are affordable and well made. The founders are openly poly, pagan, kinky and leather: Robert Jones and Orli January, together with Orli's husband, head the January House Leather Family. The January Shop also employs other members of the kink community, and, unlike some of the very plentiful overseas companies that make BDSM toys, are committed to paying their employees a reasonable wage. That's right—you can bring social conscientiousness to your playroom at no extra charge!

When you walk up to the January Shop's table at the Formal, the first thing to catch your eye will probably be the brightly colored paracord floggers. There's a flogger to create any sensation, from thuddy to stingy, heavy to light. Orli's favorite part of vending at events is helping people find exactly the right sensation for them. Your Passport includes the opportunity to utilize Orli's expertise!

The January Shop also sells hand-dyed and -conditioned bondage rope in cotton, jute and coconut, cut to your specific needs. (We've invited Orli and Robert to demonstrate proper use in our Dungeon of Visual Delights!) In addition to rope, they'll have wearable works such as custom collars, leashes, body harnesses and jewelry. Your Alibi and Cabaret staff will be donning some of their custom jewelry during the Formal. (Look for the scarlet letter "a"s if you need one of us.)

The January Shop retails online and at local events, and wholesales both in the US and internationally. They also take appointments for Albuquerque locals to shop in person!

The Great White Buffalo of Parties

Questions: Do you like secrets? Do you like fun? Is there anything cooler than being included in a super fun secret?
Answers: Secrets and fun are awesome and there's nothing more satisfying than being in on a sweet hush-hush underground party.
Registration for the secret party of the year has just opened and now you have the chance to be one of the secret elite. Founded in France nearly 30 years ago, Diner en Blanc is an exclusive “white party” pop-up picnic that happens once a year. The magically decorated location is revealed only when participants load up on the bus. Tickets are limited and can be hard to come by, but follow these small steps, buy a white outfit, and become way cooler than all your friends.

Step 1: Find a date! Tickets are sold in pairs so you'll need a partner for this party.
Step 2: Register online at http://albuquerque.dinerenblanc.info/register.
Step 3: Buy an all white outfit and table cloth, and start planning your meal. Since this is a pop-up event, guests are required to pack their own dinner.
Step 3: After Phase One Registration is over, invites will be sent out and the waiting list will be called upon.

Don't miss your chance to be a part of the coolest secret of the year.

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #298: I hope there aren’t a bunch of girl hogs at the party.

I am at Conan's house. A party is about to start. I have a difficult task dictated by instructions printed on folded cardboard cards. Each successive clue, however, makes my job somewhat easier, culminating simply in "play Foreigner real loud.” People start to arrive in rusty jeeps. I check my guitar in its black case. My pal J complains that some of the guests will be “girl hogs.”

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #256: A teenager hugs my feet.

I am drinking at a party. A young teen dressed in white enters. He kneels at my feet and hugs them saying, "My father in Christ!" He says I was the one who first witnessed to him. Later I see him clowning around and he is quite funny.

Group Hug

A lovely Spring Social

Yesterday’s mini-snow was preceded by a peek at real N.M. spring—days of blissful warmth with little wind.

On such a day, fine folks gathered at Launchpad for a psychedelic picnic. There was much rejoicing. The place looked the best I’ve ever seen it, thanks to the handywork of Bee Bee the Clown, Marya Errin Jones and Tahnee Udero.

Dogs were provided by Chicago Dog. Olo Yogurt Studio arrived with frozen treats. Bee Bee created a candy buffet. Performances by Roo, Hyperland, Tall Boys and Tropical Girls inspired revelry.

Stay tuned for the next Alibi Group Hug event: The legendary Al Hurricane and ¡Ask a Mexican! columnist Gustavo Arellano and El Pinto on Wednesday, April 18.

Party!

FAQ RE: The Alibi Spring Social

Q: What’s in it for me?

A: Attractive friends and a general feeling of belonging. Plus, free hot dogs from Chicago Dog starting at 8 p.m. First come, first served. Free frozen yogurt from Olo starting at 10 p.m. while supplies last. Candy buffet all night long. Photo Booth Rentals of New Mexico will snap your picture and give you a strip for free. Kayla will paint your skin.

Q: What if I just want to dance?

A: Hedonic revelry is essential. To aid in your pleasure, we present to you: The glimmering math rock of Roo, space voyager Hyperland, the dreamy country of Tall Boys (girls on stilts) and the lo-fi beach synth of Tropical Girls. Not to mention DJ Mello and her soulful psychedelia.

Q: What is a spring social?

A: We think it’s like a garden party in Anne of Green Gables times, but we’re not totally sure. It conjures images of hats with ribbons in them, though we’ve never owned such a thing. We prefer a brighter, more sparkly interpretation. Frozen treats are mandatory. As is dance music. Warm climes preferred.

Q: What will the weather be like on Friday?

A: The triple-dubs predict a balmy º78 during the day with a clear and mellow º50 in the latter part of the evening.

Alibi Spring Social

Friday, March 30, Launchpad. Doors at 8 p.m., $5, 21+
