CLUB AWAKENING!!!

A party designed for newbies, we've been serving the community since 2016!

I meet people that are new to the scene all the time. A very common question is, “what party is good for a newbie to start with?” Well – here’s my answer – CLUB AWAKENING!

This is the party for you if you are new to the scene (1-2 years or less) OR are bringing someone new. Don't worry - even if you aren't new, this party is open to ALL! It will feature more seasoned volunteers to run a handful of various tasting booths, including hands-on play, crops and canes, paddles, floggers, and rope (and a special surprise booth!) Our Volunteer Assistants are there to not only welcome everyone, but also answer questions, help you through the process of negotiation for a scene, and/or simply point you in the right direction. In addition, there will be experienced practice bottoms in case you want to try something new from the Top side!

PARKING & DIRECTIONS

**THERE IS A VALET SERVICE!!!**

More info coming soon...

If you are coming from the 110 please be aware there are TWO Athens Way streets - DO NOT TURN ON THE FIRST ATHENS - TURN ON THE 2ND ATHENS JUST PAST THE TRAIN TRACK.

Parking is street parking and much like the old venue, the earlier you arrive the easier it will be to find a spot! The opposite side of Athens is no parking, however, most other white curbs up and down the surrounding streets are ok to park on.

There are many RVs parked near and around the area. Note: Sanctuary has made friends with many of the surrounding businesses as well as the people who reside in the RVs just outside of the venue. (They have been very friendly!)

**If possible it's a great idea to carpool or uber there as well!

END OF NIGHT

If you would like to be escorted to your car when you're leaving, please let the front desk know and Garland (assistant manager) will walk you to your car or they will find someone who can!
