First Social Hour at CMEN Northern California Gathering 2014Social Hour & Evening Themes

Among the highlights of each day at the CMEN gatherings are the late afternoon social hour parties and evening events.

Just for fun, the social hour parties and evening events have a different theme each day. While nudity is still the overall rule, gathering attendees are encouraged (but not required) to wear accessories that correspond to the theme for the social hour and evening. Social hour “costumes” can range from a simple cap or hat to the outlandish.

Themes for the Mid-Summer Gathering 2021:

  • Tuesday, July 27 – Rainbow of Colors:  Which is your favorite color in the rainbow? Wear your favorite color cap and accessories this evening. Together, we each add a color to form a rainbow.
  • Wednesday, July 28 – Men in Uniform:  There’s nothing like the smell of a man in uniform! Do you most admire the men who protect our country, the officers who preserve the peace, the doctors who heal, or the postmen who deliver? Wear your favorite uniform accessories and be prepared to serve!
  • Thursday, July 29 – Leather or Knot:  Yes Sir!  The masculine aroma of men in black leather fills the air.  Will tonight be the night of your fantasies?  look your best in polished motorcycle boots, black leather cap, harness, and other accessories.
  • Friday, July 30 – Red Hot!  Everything is red hot! Wear your favorite red cap or hat, red sandals, red wig or other red accessories this evening.
  • Saturday, July 31 – Viva Mexico!  Time to take a fantasy visit South of the Border to old Mexico. Come naturally native with nothing but a sombrero and a colorful poncho from Puebla. Experience the sounds of Mariachi music, Spanish guitars, and erotic dancing!
