URGE Male Out - November 2011

Hi there
 
Well here we are in November – not long till the New Year, where the feck has 2011 gone??
 
October was certainly eventful with all the rugby going on (well done All Blacks!), but some URGE highlights during the month included the fantastic DJ Rob from Sydney making his NZ debut as well as the successful Slave Auction for the Mental Health Foundation which raised a massive $3,500.
 
Now November has three key dates for your diary – one mega dance party, one huge milestone and one small but relevant ceremony.
 
Friday November 4: Friday Furry Friday– the monthly meeting of the Bear NZ group at Social Bar and Café (next to Family) for the first time. Meet from 8pm with nibbles and a raffle before heading to URGE later and music from DJ James Leuii

Saturday November 5: DJ Raj

Friday November 11: Bearracuda Warm-Up @ URGE with music from DJ James Leuii. We have people flying in especially for our Bearracuda party from Europe, America, Australia and around NZ. Come along and say hi at our special pre-party party.
 
Saturday November 12: Bearracuda AUCKLAND. The return of one of America’s premier dance parties! If you went last year you know what a blast it is. Returning is USA DJ Francisco Guerra, who enjoyed himself so much he didn’t hesitate to come back.
 
Joining him is fantastic Sydney spinner Matt Effect – who has wowed Auckland audiences at two Tri-Nations Dance parties.
 
Tickets are a bargain $30 (plus booking fee) but are flying out the door fast – available from URGE, Marvel Menswear (Ponsonby Rd), Marcellos Café (College Hill) or online at http://www.iticketexpress.co.nz/events/2011/nov/bearracuda-auckland/ . $40 tickets will be available at the door if available.

Sunday November 13: Bearracuda Chill Out @ URGE. Great way to wind down the big weekend. Nibbles and drink specials for our special 3pm-7pm opening.
 
Thursday November 17: Quiz Night at URGE. Our monthly brain teaser. $5 a team, with a max of four to a team. Its great fun and a fantastic way to meet new people
 
Friday November 18: Alan’s NZ Citizenship Party. Just when you thought it was safe, co-owner Alan is becoming an official Kiwi! For the night URGE is going all Kiwiana with special nibbles, music from DJ James Leuii and drink specials.
 
Saturday November 19: DJ Donald Bennett

Friday November 25: ‘Man Friday’ with DJ James Leuii

Saturday November 26: URGE turns 14!!! The longest running gay men’s bar in New Zealand clicks over to another milestone. We have been going since 1997 and we would love you to come along and celebrate. Music from DJs Mauri and Ant
 
So as you can see a huge month. Coming soon – Christmas and New Year details and the big one – Bear New Zealand 2012!
 
Cheers
 
The URGE crew
