Allergy Alert: There is a cat in the house.

General info about neighborhood, house, accessibility:

  • The neighborhood is very active – lots of pedestrian and street traffic. Lots of eyes and ears so please don’t scare the neighbors.
  • Check to make sure the cat doesn’t sneak out the front door (sign on the door will warn people to not let the cat out).
  • Shoes off at the door (play shoes allowed inside – use common sense with potentially floor-damaging heels)
  • Treat the furniture with care. No bare butts on main floor seating.
  • Smoking allowed outside on the back fenced-in patio. An ashtray will be provided. Don’t scare the neighbors.
  • Fenced in backyard and patio for outdoor socializing – but not private (wooden privacy fence, but audible from the street and visible from second floors of neighbor’s houses).
  • Lots of stairs
    • Seven stairs to gain entry to the house – no handrail
    • Handrails are not available to the basement or attic.
    • There is only one toilet at this location and it is located up one flight of stairs.
  • There is seating for dealing with boots and shoes and shelving for stashing bags is available near the front door. A sturdy, double-rail coat rack will be set out in colder months.

Playspace:

  • Six play stations on two floors (three in the basement, three in the attic)
  • One cuddle room for cuddling… and stuff
  • One quiet room with seating and a massage table
  • The shower is not available for play. See host if you would like to use the shower for cleanup (towels can be provided if necessary).

Atons April 2019 L & L Dinner – Davanni’s Golden Valley

The Atons invite our leather friends to the April L&L dinner at Davanni’s in Golden Valley. We haven’t visited the western metro in a while. We also picked Davanni’s because they are comfortable and affordable. We have one of the party rooms in the back reserved for our group.
