We are briefly coming out of our self-imposed silence to let you know that our sex-positive LGBTQIA+ sister brand House of Scorpio is throwing down another outdoor dance party this Saturday for its community. It's likely the last one of the season, given how rainy it's been (TBC, obv) -- but the weather is looking gorgeous for this weekend, and we hope to give you one last blowout before we all go back indoors. You can't get any better than this: our own corner of a huge luscious courtyard, frozen drinks, outdoor dance floor, fire pit, lots of lounging room, etc. See below for full invite.
Heads up that HoS is a members-only group, but memberships start at just $5/mo with no required commitment minimum. It's a wonderful, fun, supportive community, and we hope you find friends and allies in it, wherever your gender, orientation or sexuality may fall. The party will be as COVID-safe as possible: vaccine required, outdoors and socially distant (and you can wear masks if closer than 6'). The membership system allows us to put your vaccine status on file, and helps us with contact tracing in case of a breakthrough infection.
For those who may be into our vintage, costume & designer collection: we don't have an official Raid The Racks plan for September, as it's our big moving month, but you can always make an appointment for pretty much any day. All the madness around losing the Loft is leaving no time for new online listings, either, so we are trying to do as much as we can in person. Hit us up and come get some fabulous wearables -- and help support us financially in this very tough stretch. A preview of about a third of the items here: https://linktr.ee/miss_scorpio_fashion
There's sadly no further news on trying to save our Loft or finding a new space. We're seeing lots of places and having lots of conversations, but nothing is solid enough to report back on. So if anyone might have leads on any space in the neighborhood, 2-4k sq ft w outdoor space, we're all ears.
Gemini & Scorpio,
makers of themed costume events with live entertainment

- Proof of vaccination is required to attend and will be added to your member profile for future events. We strongly recommend the official NY State Excelsior app, but you can also show your original vaccination card and photo ID (no copies of either).
- Attendance is by advance ticket purchase only; no door sales. Tip: download the Wild Apricot app for easy mobile ticket purchase, especially if buying last minute. Tickets are available online throughout the event unless we reach capacity.
- In an unlikely case of infection, our membership system will be used for contact tracing. Contact information is collected from all guests for this purpose.
- Masks are welcome but not required, and are recommended for the dance floor if not keeping 6' apart (but there's plenty of room to dance at a safe distance).
- All G&S staff have been vaccinated, but may still mask up as they see fit.
