A Few Notes for the Fall Festival Season (2014):

No doubt, FALL is my favorite season! From pumpkin spice lattes to Oktoberfest beer, the turning of the trees, great fashion, spooky decorations, & an endless array of fun things to choose from, energy fills the air & it's a great time of year.

So helping to keep you I the loop, our autumn updates for The Metro Underground are now complete (we will do one final brush up for Halloween).

Please see http://www.TheMetroUnderground.com as well as links below for what's happening from around the scene.

In the meantime, we're only a few short weeks from one of DC's most lavish & anticipated events: The DC Fetish Ball & DC Fetish Weekend…

Please join us October 10th-12th (Columbus Day Weekend) for a time of unforgettable beauty, intrigue, & sheer possibility. Bringing together some of the scene's very best DJ's, Models, Fashion, & Nationally Recognized Talent - all accented w/ an incredible play space in some of the city's most lavish venues, the DC Fetish Weekend promises to bring a level of twisted delight worthy of the Nation's Capitol!

·         Dinner Seating runs from 6:30pm-9pm. Main Party runs 9pm-3am. Kitchen runs late.

·         In the spirit of The Metro Underground, we've joined forces w/ two of the area's most recognized clubs to bring a level of top notch play & possibility. See links for info.

Sunday (10/12):  The Metro Underground Presents the DC Fetish Ball …

Plans are also being laid for the Black & White Ball in November:  driving off our success of the past 2 years, the annual Black & White Ball has gained ground. We're currently laying plans for one of the scene's favorite parties to kick off the December Holidaze. So keep an eye out!

Photos from 2013 are FINALLY being posted! 

What can I say, last year brought chaos of biblical proportion. Posting pics were pushed off as a result. But we'll finally have them up w/in the next couple of days (if they're not already up by the time you read this). 

Links to galleries will be posted on the Metro Pages for Facebook, Fetlife, on the Events Page for our main site & the pics page for the DC Fetish Ball. They will also be posted to my scene profile for Facebook & Fetlife. See links:

Thank you for your patience. My apologies for the delay.


I'd like to offer our congratulations & heartfelt condolences to a couple scene favorites.

First, the good news => this Saturday, D~X~S Rapture will celebrate their 7th anniversary in the scene! Offering monthly play parties, the new Rapture Social, as well as vending at area festivals & events, they've been a mainstay for quite some time. And with all the changes that have taken place over the past few years it's no small accomplishment to still be going so strong. We offer them our most sincere congratulations.

In other news, I'd like to take a moment & offer my deepest condolences to The Pleasure Garden Club in Philadelphia. I understand its owner & founding member has recently passed away. Without question, he created a force w/in the Philadelphia underground & alternative culture. Although I was never given the opportunity to know him personally, my thoughts & best wishes go out to all those who are affected by his loss.


And finally, a few featured events for the Fall Season:
