Mr. Midwest Leather Contest and the Midwest Puppy Contest

When: Sat., Oct. 6, 11 p.m. 2018

It's a leather kind of weekend, as the Mr. Midwest Leather Contest and the Midwest Puppy Contest will crown new titleholders on Saturday, October 6, at JJ's Clubhouse (3858 Market Street; www.mrmidwestleather.com). There are a host of social events for the community to join on Friday and Sunday, but if you're only in it to see fit men who look good in leather compete for the sash, Saturday is the main event. Doors open at 9 p.m. for a silent auction and raffle (plus some serious socializing), and the contest starts at 11 p.m. Potential winners will need to answer questions from the judges, wear their hottest outfit while being introduced to the audience, demonstrate their comfort by answering a single question while minimally dressed and deliver a 90-second speech in full leather. The new Mr. Midwest Leather will then represent the community to the best of his abilities, raise funds and awareness, and compete in the International Mr. Leather contest. Admission for spectators and supporters is $10.
