The nation’s liberal elite won’t be the only group celebrating in Washington on inauguration week. Mid-January, the District will also play host to the Mid-Atlantic Leather Weekend’s 25th anniversary bash, Page One Q reports. The weekend, organized by the Centaur Motorcycle Club, an organization that claims an “enthusiastic interest in motorcycles, leather, and other men,” will take place from Friday, Jan. 16 to Sunday, Jan. 18, just two days prior to Barack Obama‘s swearing in. Despite the proximity of the two events, an Obama spokesperson says that the president-elect won’t be spending his last weekend as a civilian in patent leather bondage gear, dancing the night away at Apex after the conclusion of the the Mr. MAL pageant.

Obama will probably not be able to attend any of the Leather Weekend festivities. “Let’s just say it’s likely the president-elect will be occupied with many other activities,” spokeswoman Linda Douglass told ABC News.
