INTERNET seacruise2014 620x230 Leather Pride Night: Cruise Control, Sun, Aug. 17th Leather Pride Night: Cruise Control! An Evening Abord the Sea Tea

Join the LPN family for our first ever Leather Pride Night at Sea as we take over the Sea Tea Cruise on Sunday, August 17th! Raffles, auction prizes, performances and more are on deck as we put on our finest sailor suits, leather and other fetish wear and board The Good Ship Leather Top! (Well, no, we’re kidding about the name of the ship.)

Come show us your knot tying skill as a crew of experienced sailors … well, never mind, they’re piloting the boat, but we’ve got plenty of people who know all sorts of rope tricks!

$30 gets you onto the boat and feeds you dinner! There’s a cash bar, dancing, a silent/ live auction and a gorgeous sunset cruise around Manhattan and New York Harbor!

And once the boat docks, head to Rockbar (185 Christopher St.), present your ticket stub, and get a free cocktail!

This 125 FT yacht features comfort, sound and sights with lounges, dance floor and the spectacular sky deck with panoramic view of the Manhattan & New Jersey skylines.

Music by Phillip Kimball
MC: Ms. Witti Repartee

From the Governor’s Island blog:

For the first time in more than 10 years, the AIDS Memorial Quilt will be on view in NYC on Governors Island this coming Monday and Tuesday, August 11 and 12th. The Aids Memorial Quilt is a memorial to those who have died of AIDS. Today, it is made up of more that 48,000 3 by 6 foot panels that each memorialize the name of someone who has died of AIDS. The quilt was first begun in 1987 by a group in San Francisco, and today the project is continued by The Names Project Foundation….

…On Monday and Tuesday, a large piece (a 57,600 square-foot section) of the quilt will be unfolded across the Parade Ground on Governors Island. A dedication ceremony will be held at 4:30 p.m. on August 11th. The unveiling is a part of the fifth annual Kiehl’s LifeRide, a charity motorcycle ride that raises funds and awareness for amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research. The upcoming ride is August 2nd -12th, from Milwaukee, making stops in Chicago, Detroit, Niagara Falls and Lake George, and ending in Kiehl’s own hometown of New York City.
