My Kinky Valentine

Candlelit dinner and roses for Valentine's Day? How perfectly vanilla. This weekend's Valentines Fetish Ball ties up all those clichéd ideas about romance and gives them a good smacking around. The V-Day-themed bash, hosted by Fetish Factory, is all leather and latex glamour, with performances by neoburlesque/fetish models DeeDee Luxe, Elena Lee, and Val Vampyre. Linder Smash!, Kaos, and Mad Vinny will DJ the party, and a strict dress code is in full effect. The "no jeans, no all-black, no slackers" sartorial rules call for "kinky cupids," latex, leather, vinyl, uniforms, and other fetish glam that would make your standard club gear blush. The Valentines Fetish Ball is 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. Saturday at Exit 66, located at 219 S. Fort Lauderdale Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $15. Tables are available with purchase of bottle service; email Danny@FetishFactory.com to reserve a table. Call 954-563-5777, or visit thefetishparty.com.
Sat., Feb. 9, 10 p.m.-4 a.m., 2013
