November 21 – 23, 2014 is the inaugural Mister New England Leather Weekend in Provincetown. Finally the weather in Ptown will be suitable for all that leather.
Some of the events this year include an opening night party at The Vault from 10PM – 1AM; Mr. New England Leather Competition at the Paramount Nightclub that starts at 9PM; and a Tea Dance party called “After Glow” at The Vault from 3-6PM. Sadly the fast ferries between Boston and Ptown are no longer running but that shouldn’t deter any of you contemplating going.

I suppose this is an inside joke if you are not familiar with Provincetown, but when I saw this a couple weeks ago I couldn’t resist snapping a photograph.
