It was another TYPICAL weekend in Chicago:
  • Obnoxious St. Louis Cardinal fans - Cubs lost 2 out of 3 games
  • Boorish Philly Flyers fans - Hawks won both games
  • The President of the US visiting his old Chicago hangout - messed up air and road traffic
  • A few thousand leather and gear fans at IML (International Mr. Leather)
But what did some of the furries do? We used IML as an excuse to hang out in downtown Chicago and just have fun.
  • Friday - Gearblast, organized by Rocketpup, is a social gathering at IML for fans of all types of gear / dress (from business suits to rubber / leather to sports unitforms to fursuits) - While there was a great turnout in general, 35 furries showed up (me, nitropup, jet, hunter, perro, rex, woody, ryan, vish, fen, metro, fozzi, zoober, dane, huxley, pawnce, leon, cyanwolf, theome, delmir, kale, yelang, basilfox, street, kodi, slush, snickers, tozier, spork, madius, panth, tahoe, seven, the man, novaua)
  • Saturday - The fursuiters (spork, madius, woody, dbruin, arty, jaegerfuchs, tigwolf, theome, rex, and delmir) invaded the big market at IML. Overall, it was mainly positive comments. The few negatives centered around blocking paths in the market and how it wasn't related to leather. We were later joined by Kamberlane and his GF for dinner and later drinks at the Signature Room (95th-96th floors of the John Hancock Tower) where the view of the Chicago at night was incredible. The night ended with drinks and good times.
  • Sunday - Nitropup and I took it easy this day. we made our way to the Lincoln Park zoo (along with a billion other people) to see the animals. Once again, the puma was asleep. We did meet up with some of the furs at the IML hotel for dinner. We later went to the local ice rink where 15 of us scrimmaged for about 1.5 hours which was lots of fun. After showering up, Nitropup and I made it back to the IML for another night of drinks and joking around.
  • Monday - There wasn't enough time for much fun things. After brunch and packing up, Nitropup had to flying back to New York. I met up with a bunch of other local furs for a BBQ and watching the Blackhawks beat the Flyers in Game 2! (Thanks to Slush for his impromptu sketch of me - see above)
Wish I could tell you what will happen next weekend. I'm sure it'll be just as "varied..." *off to bed*

*Edit - IML is International Mr. Leather not International Male Leather
