Wear your JOCK to the Main Event at ROCKS (77 Central Ave) beginning at 9:00 pm. There'll be a clothes check for those who want to shimmy down to your jocks and underwear (encouraged but not required). Great drink specials, dance music, and more man fur than you can shake your stick at!


Let's meet for Brunch at McGeary's at 12:00 noon. It's always a fun little weekend crowd with really great food. Then head over ROCKS for Hot Boi Auction starting at 5pm.


Most of you should be familiar with the Marriott Townplace Suites (22 Holland Ave. Albany, NY). As always, be sure to ask for the "BEAR ALBANY DISCOUNT" when calling to get our special rates (518) 860-1500. There's no event registration fees and be sure to take advantage of the hotel's FREE SHUTTLE so you don't have to drive to the bars! Then, once you're out at the bars, ask one of the Bear Albany gentlemen about the hospitality suite for complimentary refreshments and fun when the bar party is over.
