The Saddle, “Never a cover, always a double.”
Looking for a kink-friendly bar while at Mischief in May? The Blazing Saddle can help you out! A sponsor of Mischief in May, the Saddle (as patrons call it) isn’t kink specific but kink friendly and offers $2 Domestic bottles Mischief in May weekend! Mischief in May attendees will get a special hand stamp at Mischief in May to take advantage of the Saddle’s special.
Being kink friendly, The Saddle has seen it all! Owner Bryan Smith remembers seeing a KinkU event presentation with mummification. He states, “At the end, the demo was unwrapped while standing in a pan of water and then came in the pan!”
