Perhaps you are wondering to yourself: Really, what do people actually do at a family-friendly, clothing-optional resort?! Well, if you are staying at Lupin Lodge just outside of the Bay Area, nested in the Santa Cruz Mountains, then you might hang out in a hot tub or sauna, go on a nature hike through 110 wooded acres, play volleyball, learn Qi Gong, get a massage, dance; attend a live music concert; camp out or participate in an all-nude open mic night!
This July, Lupin Lodge is hosting a buffet of fun, clothing-optional events; here are the highlights:
July 15 – Open Mike at 8:00 PM – Join Lupin’s own beloved nude guitar player, Charlie, as he plays beautiful classical guitar. Then it’s your turn to show everyone your stuff….ummmm…talent that is! Sing, play piano, tell a joke or a story, dazzle with a dramatic reading, or hula hoop!
July 16-17 - The Santa Cruz Mountain Full Moon Music Festival!!!!
July 23 – Summer of Love – Come play and relive…if you can remember… the magical Summer of Love with body painting and music from the era! Join everyone, au natural, on the restaurant lawn at 3:00 PM for a BYOB cocktail and appetizer mixer at 3:00 PM. Also, note that the regular volleyball tournament season begins at 11:00 AM. Where else can you play volleyball in the nude and get your body painted?!!!!
July 29 – Little John Chrisley rocks it in the restaurant tonight starting at 8:00 PM.
July 30 – Join everyone on the restaurant lawn at 3:00 PM for a BYOB cocktail and appetizer mixer, at 3:00 PM, followed by an outdoor movie on the lawn starting at dark: Mao’s Last Dancer.
