RISQUÉ Military Appreciation Month on
May 11th '19 at the Crucible in Washington D.C.

DC's Ultimate Hardcore Play Party with event pages on Facebook & Fetlife

This month, RISQUÉ salutes our nation's military heroes in celebration of Military Appreciation Month. We're celebrating the service and sacrifice of all members of the armed forces; active duty and veterans; those that have allowed us to celebrate our freedoms so liberally and indulgently.

And as a thank you for their service, anyone serviceman or woman (active or retired) that shows their military ID will receive a $5 discount off of the price of admission.

All of us at RISQUÉ believe that those that have served our country deserve to be shown a good time as a thank you for their dedicated service to our nation, and there’s no better time than National Military Appreciation Month. So, whether you say hooah, oorah, or hooyah, we’re throwing this month’s party for you. We hope everyone – from active duty servicemen, to veterans, to private citizens – all come out to RISQUÉ to help us celebrate National Military Appreciation Month and our nation’s armed forces.

────────────── Bootblack ──────────────

Now she is keeping boots shined in the Mid Atlantic as the 2019 Mid Atlantic Woman BootBlack. Foxxy likes breaking molds of what a bootblack should be - as a Femme Top, bootblacking is as much about the shine as about service to the community. Bootblacking for her isn’t about which product everyone is using or how expensive your boots are, it’s about “Sharing a moment in your boots”.
