Last weekend, I was at a daytime event at the Eagle (formerly The Gauntlet II). As the night wore on, the regulars started showing up - the leatherboys. Someone asked, "Why is there so much security in here?" I overheard one of these guys saying, "So I went in there to buy my Dr. Pepper, like I always do, because that's where I get my Dr. Pepper, but this time I'm wearing my SWAT uniform, you know, and the guy asks me, are you a policeman or something, and I said, no..."

So of course I had to go over and make friends with them.

Then these guys just started spontaneously handcuffing their friend to the bars of the window. I asked them if I could take pictures and post them all over the internet. They were admiring the pics, and said, "Oh, they came out." Well, somebody probably just did.

He just hung around like that all night, chatting as if everything was the same as usual. He was still handcuffed to the bars when I left.
