I was offering this information to a friend and decided I should share it with everybody. The Scenery in Hayward, California, is a great playspace, run by genuinely kinky, genuinely kind people. And I owe them a lot, since I mislaid my cane case (stocked with about $300 worth of canes) the last time I was there. They searched for it and ultimately found it — and they seemed as happy as I was to get it back.
Here is the Events list, which includes classes and play parties every Friday and Saturday.
Finger foods, water, tea and coffee are included in your admission dues. $10 per person annual registration fee + $20 single or $35 per couple per evening. And the Scenery card gets you a discount at various local kink stores.
Subs can Ask Kit about what the atmosphere is like and what toys they have. (Slings. Medical tables. St. Andrew’s Cross. Lots of spanking benches. Many other cool playstations.)
Or you can look at this picture, which doesn’t do it justice. It’s a vast space, and there’s a big separate seating area for conversation. Smoking is outside only.
I’ve always found the atmosphere there friendly and wonderfully free of trolls.
