Social Hour & Evening Themes

Among the highlights of each day at the 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.

The CMEN Southeast Spring Gathering 2020 themes will be announced before the gathering, 2019 evening themes were:

  • Saturday, June 1 – Madd Hatter: Welcome to the Southeast Spring Gathering, wear your favorite hat to tell us something about you this evening.
  • Sunday, June 2 – Orange party: Wear your favorite orange cap or hat, orange sandals or other accessories this evening.
  • Monday, June 3 – Christmas in June: Santa needs a vacation and he decided to visit us in Tennessee. Bring your Christmas spirit to welcome him.
  • Tuesday, June 4 – Hawaiian Paradise: Tonight the romance, music, and foods from the Hawaii will transport our fantasies to a tropical paradise. A beckoning drum and a faint mountain breeze add to the romance. Come natively naked or wear a lei for the evening. Hula anyone?
  • Wednesday, June 5 – Night of 100 Queens: Oh Darling! Dress to sparkle tonight. Perhaps you will find paradise in a luxurious ensemble, in something totally silly, or in the man wearing one….
  • Thursday, June 6 – Leather: A Night at Folsom Street: The masculine aroma of men in black leather will fill the air; look your best in polished motorcycle boots, black leather cap, harness, and other accessories.
  • Friday, June 7 – Green: Everything is green! Wear your favorite green cap or hat, green sandals or other green accessories this evening.
  • Saturday, June 8 – Over the rainbow: It takes a community of men with different experiences, interests and dreams to make a gathering successful.  Join us celebrating our community by wearing accessories in your favorite color to help make a rainbow together.
