Monster Party Cafe opens in Japan – the first permanent furry-themed business?
by Patch O'Furr
It’s fun to go to themed places that make you feel like you’re in a movie. There’s Speakeasy and Tiki bars, or even Horror and Clown themed bars. For a spooky time, try The Jeckyl and Hyde Club in NYC, Donnie Dirk’s Zombie Den in Minneapolis, or Lovecraft Bar in Portland, Oregon. How about a visit to Toontown?
For some people, it’s more than fun. Night life is real life. Some places support subculture or identity like Gay and Leather bars.
Why not a furry bar? It’s a half-joke/half-suggestion I’ve been making for years. One night a month, you can do dances like Frolic in San Francisco, Foxtrot in Denver, Tail! Party in Long Beach, or Howl Toronto. But what if there was a place to be your furry self almost any night?
There have been a lot of “fandom firsts” in a short while – some good, some bad. There was the first mainstream-accessible furry movie and the first Furry political scandal. Now, new ground has been broken by a permanent establishment with a furry theme. It’s an idea that could go much farther, but take a look.
