November Spawned a... Oh? Last Year? Did I?
Thursday, 1 November 2018

Remember, remember, the 24th of November; baby oil, jockstraps, and drag... yes indeed, we're only a few weeks away from the beefiest beauty pageant of the Brighton Calendar: MR SUBLINE 2018. I've got a few more titbits to impart beforehand though, so bear with, to be endowed with huge... knowledge...


Writing as I am at the turn of the month, I'd like to thank the lovely boys of Brighton Bear Weekend for bringing Night of The Living Zombears (2) to our basement. A night of frightful fun, augmented by several local landlords crawling in without need for costumes... £400 of door money, plus a few bits'n'pieces from the collection buckets, are going to the Rainbow Fund from the night.


Floss, our new regular Wednesday fixture, has got off to a storming start. Aiming at a slightly - dare I say it - QUEERER crowd than most Subline events. They'll now be taking over our dungeon each Wednesday from 10pm until 2am, with admission charge from £5


On the near horizon, we have Dirty Tackle - the sport's kit party - on Friday 9th from 10pm; entry £3 in Sportswear, or £5 otherwise.
Hot on the heels, on Saturday 10th, is the next meeting of Leathermen South. Doors open at 10, and entry is free if you're in legit leather (or rubber) gear. £5 otherwise.
The following Friday, 16th, Kitten Skye's Fabulous Fetish juggernaut FILTH rolls into town. As ever, there are discount tickets available ahead of time, but on the night (if indeed we aren't sold out in advance) it'll set you back £25. Fetish dress is compulsory, and there's no entry after midnight.


That Saturday, 17th November, is OUR BIRTHDAY PARTY. Subline has been outraging public decency, or whatever, for eight years now; surely a cause for celebration?! I'll be knocking up a veritable feast for the revellers, there'll be gratuitous amounts of bubbly flowing, and we'll be pounding away until you all plead us to stop. Entry is £5 for members, £8 for non-members


Another week ahead, it's MR SUBLINE 2018. Every year we invite the sexiest slabs of man-meat in town to pose and preen for the assembled rabble; this year they'll be taken gently in hand by gorgeous hostess Pat Clutcher. Admission is £5 for members, £8 for non members; which will be donated directly to THT South. Doors open 9pm, show begins (realistically!) by 10:30. After a quick Q and A with the hostess, and a costume change or two, the boys'll disappear while the audience elect their favourite. Pat will then be pulling the tickets for our Grand Prize Draw (more below) while the votes are cast and counted; then we'll be announcing this year's MR SUBLINE circa midnight!


As every year, I'm pleading for entrants - I have a couple confirmed early, but there's plenty of room for more of you hot studs to step up! Let me know by email or in person ASAP! All contestants receive a couple of free drinks for Dutch Courage and an Annual Pass for Subline. Runners up will get bottles of fizz, and the winner will be liberally rewarded with bubbly, chocs, and flowers; as well as two tickets for the next Filth Fetish Party (donated by Kitten Skye) and a rather incredible night for two in a Welsh Castle (with thanks to Guy Cornelius) - the ying and yang of romantic nights out, I'd say! There may be even more yet in the winner's bundle; so if you've even the slightest inkling of competing... DO IT!


Following a little Facebook shout-out for prize donations by Polly, the response was heartwarmingly swift and generous; so we've kept some of this embarrassment of riches back and will be further fundraising for THT with a GRAND PRIZE DRAW. As mentioned above, the draw takes place on 24th November. Tickets are on sale RIGHT NOW - £1 each - with amazing prizes as listed below. Bottomless thanks to all the generous donors!


   Raffle Prizes include:
     Alison Moyet tribute night, including 3 course meal for 2, at Jurys Inn. Donated by Davina Sparkle.
     Sunday Roast for 2 with Prosecco from Andy Tull at Black Horse.
     VIP booth with Prosecco and a round of shots, from our lovely neighbors Matthew and Brandon at Infinity Bar .
     Bottles of Whiskey donated by Brian Latham.
     2 Haircut vouchers for ManZone Barbers from Marc Walmsley.
     Sunday Roast for 2 with wine at Marine Tavern. Donated by Lee, Joe and Matthew.
     Free passes for Brighton Sauna donated by Paul Gray.
     Some delightful panties from Barcode Berlin, donated by Subline's own Steve Lee.
Only a quid a go, and all for THT? Can't go wrong, I'd say..!


After the whirlwind of exceptions described above, it'll be nice to get back to normal with Cum In Your Pants on Sunday 25th November. Our monthly underwear night with DJ Nude. Entry is £3/£5, and we're open 21:00 to 02:30


December and Chrimble loom; and I'll give you the briefest of rundowns of that which is already confirmed:
1st is Leathermen South, and also World AIDS Day; we'll be raising the roof, and raising money for THT
7th is Dirty Tackle in a new 'first-Friday-of-the-month' slot
8th is the Bear Weekend Christmas Party
13th is Club Silencio, with a Silencio Christmas Carol
14th is the launch of a new night, in association with JamieHP - SBN vs NBN. More information next time
21st is Filth
Then there's some pagan celebration happening. I might be shut for some of it. Or not. I will tell all very soon!


I've bent your ears at great length again, and I humbly apologise; but it's hard being banned from Facebook!


With love and best wishes
Your Ghost-writing host
