Imagine a cinematic battle set in medieval times, where two sides of hardened men square off while their leader gives them a heroic and courageous speech. Well, Up Your Alley Fair is kind of like that, but all the soldiers are wearing leather. And they aren't so much worried about taking over a castle as much as they are going, uh, up your alley. This is the real deal, not the tourist-focused spectacle that's become of the Folsom Street Fair. No more messing around. Thousands of men. All in leather. Tattooed bikers, filthy fetishists, sweaty, muscled athletes in jockstraps, pierced gutter punks, Masters and slaves, Daddies and boys, and more. When it comes to man meat, there is no finer cut than the boys in San Francisco. Organic, cage free, grass-fed, all natural, leather-clad boys looking to party Craigslist-M4M style. (Also because it's San Francisco, you get your fetish with a side of philanthropy -- 100 percent of gate donations from the fair go to charity.) The action all goes down in the historic SOMA neighborhood. Who is coming with us into a battle that can't be lost?
