After one crazy weekend, let's jump into the next one! Photo by Nark Magazine. Copyright 2011.

This weekend is perhaps busier and crazier than Hallo-week! Maybe not, but pretty darn close. Pull out your iPhones, pencil and pad, or whatever your choice of organizing your weekend is, and take some notes (or you can simply just print this article out and call it good). Gather your glitter and glam, and put on enough clothing pieces to go streaking throughout the weekend. Just because it’s getting a bit chilly out there, doesn’t mean you’re not going to get too drunk to “take all your clothes off”.

Thursday, November 3rd

Begin the weekend by easing into something erotic and soft with The Strangers’ HUMP! Film Festival. HUMP celebrates the art of home-made erotic films. The audience judges and awards are given out before the films are destroyed in front of the live audience before the night is over. Hosted by the master of ceremonies, Dan Savage, this festival runs November 3rd through the 5th. .

After your erotic film intake at the festival, join the posse at The Baltic Room for ElektroPOP with their “Last Friday Night Edition” and this week the theme is Katy Perry.  This is one of the hottest weekly dance parties on the circuit and well, what are you waiting for? Occupy Seattle to tell you to go?

Can't get enough of Dan Savage and Savage Love? The catch him at The Stranger's HUMP! Film Festival.

More after the jump!
