Crucible Halloween Party (21+)

October 28, 2023  9:00 pm – October 29, 2023  2:00 am

Greetings to all macabre aficionados, and welcome to a night of exquisite debauchery, darkness, and desire at The Crucible Halloween Party – where pleasure knows no boundaries, and secrets linger in the shadows.  

As the moon ascends, casting eerie shadows upon the streets, we invite you to step into the realm of your deepest, darkest fantasies. The Crucible, a BDSM sanctuary like none other, is a haven of enigmatic kink, sensuality, play, and debauchery. But fear not, this Halloween night, for costumes shall shield your identity, granting you the freedom to embrace your innermost desires without reservation.  
Will you be a mysterious phantom, a seductive succubus, or a wickedly enchanting creature of the night? The choice is yours. Immerse yourself in the hauntingly seductive atmosphere of The Crucible, where the scent of leather and the crack of the whip mingle with whispers of temptation. Unearth your deepest desires and revel in the darkness as we dance with the shadows.  
And what masquerade would be complete without enchanting libations and delectable treats to tempt your palate? Sip on blood-red cocktails and savor sinful delights that will awaken your senses and leave you craving for more. 
Halloween at The Crucible beckons you to embrace your inner demons, explore the boundaries of pleasure, and indulge in a night of unadulterated passion. This Halloween, let the thrill of the unknown consume you. Attend this sinful soirée, if you dare, and prepare to lose yourself in a night that will linger in your dreams, long after the midnight hour has struck. Join us, if you dare, at The Crucible, where pleasure knows no bounds and the night belongs to the wicked.

  • Dungeon 101
    October 6, 2023  7:30 pm - October 7, 2023  2:00 am

    Dungeon 101 serves as an introduction into public BDSM play. If you have never attended a public BDSM play event, it can be a bit daunting. The Dungeon 101 class is specifically designed to make you feel comfortable at your first public BDSM dungeon event. Attendees and presenters come from a diverse cross section of the community, all orientations, genders and kinks are welcome. You are welcome to come alone, bring a friend or bring a bunch of friends.

    From 7:30 until 8:00 PM will be social time. Starting at 8:00 PM, there will be a talk on scene etiquette and an opportunity to learn about the dungeon itself. Directly following will be a "Exploratorium" event until 11:00 PM where you can try and/or experience many different kinds of play scenes. The idea is for it to be a fun evening for everyone!

    To facilitate the Exploratorium, we'll be capping attendance at 150. Everyone in the building (presenters, staff, attendees) must provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination to enter. No advance tickets are available for this event -  please plan to arrive early and pay at the door.

    $10 with Gateway card,
    $25 members with membership card,
    $35 all others

    More experienced folk come on out after 11:00 PM for Open Play. We ask that everyone except presenters keep their toy bags put away until Open Play starts to avoid confusion. No scenes or play permitted during the Exploratorium.

    This is an outreach event, you do not need to be a BR or Crucible member to attend.

    In order to foster a learning environment, there is no sex allowed at Dungeon 101, and no alcohol is sold. This applies all night, even during open play after the Exploratorium has concluded.

    You must be at least 18 years of age. Government-issued photo ID required for entry. Proof of Vaccination Required
