Day 4 started out way to early as did every day coming up to it. I woke up to my friend from Omaha that I had met up with the day before asking if I wanted to do breakfast. He had wandered down my way to go to a store that was apparently closed on Mondays. We ended up going to Yolk (on Michigan Ave), just down the street from the hotel. It was where I was going to go the day before. The food was really good and resonably priced, especially compared to the hotel. It was nice to chat more.
After breakfast, we went our separate ways. I went back to my room and changed for the Leather Market. Today I was going to buy some more stuff. I made it to the Nasty Pig booth and David, one of the owners, played a little dress up on me. I liked the look, but it didn’t feel like me. I did love the shorts we tried on, so I bought those. During my time at the Market, I also bought some leather suspenders and a spandex mask. I looked at getting a brutal rubber flog, but I’m not as adept at flogging as I should be to spend more money on it. Plus I don’t really have many boys into flogging. Normally on the last day of the market there are a lot of last-minute deals, but I didn’t see many this year. They’ll try to get rid of a lot of their products so they don’t have to ship them back. Maybe the recession is affecting them.
After the Market, I relaxed in my room for bit and also chilled down in the lobby. The lobby had definitely calmed down a lot compared to the previous days. About half the people will leave Monday, but if you ever go I highly recommend staying till at least Tuesday. In the lobby I met some great guys, Brent and Steve, from SF that apparently own a porn studio. I never asked which studio. I figured if they wanted to tell me, they would have.
I don’t remember what I did for dinner, it must not have been that great, but I’m also blaming the lack of sleep on not remembering. I eventually changed into the same outfit as the night before, I know it’s a gay faux-paux, but I only have so much leather. I was planning on stripping down to my jockstrap though.
