My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Saturday night out at Harvey’s

 

Well it is a cold Saturday here in Portland but that is okay as we are going to Harvey’s Comedy Club tonight. I learned from last night and am wearing my heeled boots and of course one of my new dresses, here is a picture of it. Now I was on my way early and got downtown Portland about 6:30, a bunch of us meet at Fox & Hound for drinks before we go to the show. Laura, Jen and Tess were already there so I joined them and ordered a drink and a snack.

Now we have a big group tonight going about 20 and a few that are just coming for drinks before the show. Jamie and her wife Kristen showed up for dinner, they can’t make it to the show tonight but wanted to come and meet more of the group so when they got there we put 3 tables together so we would have seats for everyone when they arrived.

We also had a new member coming out and she was a little nervous about walking alone downtown and I can so remember that feeling, I think we have all gone through that. Now we live in opposite directions so carpooling was out but I gave her my number and told her to call me when she got there and I would walk out and meet her, her name is Rebecca and I met her at the Halloween party. Well Rebecca texted me a little before 7 so I walked out to meet her, she had parked 2 blocks away and it was really cold out so now I was thinking about our 6 block walk to Harvey’s.

More girls showed up, Laura, Michelle, Julie, Trixie, Barb, Cassie and Victoria. We had a nice time talking as we got warm before our walk to Harvey’s. Several of the girls were meeting us at Harvey’s which with the cold weather was probably smart. It was about 8:30 when we left and made the chilly walk to Harvey’s.

Cassandra, Peggy, Jan, Lynn and Cristine were all Harvey’s waiting for us when we arrived and we got there early enough that there was really no one else there but we knew it wouldn’t be long and it would be busy and with the cold weather we knew people would not be waiting outside. Sophia and Lorna so I think that gave us 19. Well we took some pictures and I got this one with Rebecca. It was a good thing we did this early as it wasn’t long and the lounge was packed.

It was finally time to go into the show room and of course our tables were all set up and from the people in line it looked like it would be a sold out show. Kim our favorite waitress was here and came right over and greeted us all with a hug, she is so awesome and of course she took our orders.

The headliner tonight is Julie Scoggins and she saw us and came over and talked to us for a while before she went through the crowd greeting people. We actually picked tonight to come as she is so much fun, this is the 3rd maybe 4th time we have seen her here at Harvey’s. The show started and the MC was good as was the opening comedian as they always have good comedians here but it was Julie who was the star.

Julie was really good, she always is so if you get a chance to go and see her you should. She is really funny and puts on a good show. It was funny as during her show there was one girl in the back that kept yelling to the stage, nothing bad but very loud. Well at one point she walked all the way to right in front of the stage and started telling Julie how good she was, yes this girl had had a lot to drink. Well she was interrupting the show and one of the waiters, I think he knew her walked up, picked her up and through her over his shoulder and carried her to the back. Julie tried to get a picture with her phone of it. It was kind of funny.

It is amazing how fast the night went it really didn’t seem like we had been there that long but in fact Julie had gone 10 minutes over her time. Well after the show we were standing and waiting for some of our group when the same drunk girl who had been carried away from the stage walked by us and made a point to tell us each how ugly we looked which was funny as we were all dressed nicer then she was. I wanted to tell her she should look in a mirror but I was a polite lady and just ignored her as did the rest of our group. I think this if the first time anyone here has said anything negative right to us and I have to believe it was the alcohol talking.

After the show we talked with Julie Scoggins for a little bit and she ended up going back to Fox & Hound and having a drink with us which was so awesome. We all sat at the bar and talked and she told us a lot about what is going on in her life with her career and she has a lot of new and exciting things coming up. Well again time flew and soon it was 1:30 am hard to believe we had been here for almost an hour and a half talking with her. Well it was getting late and Julie wanted pictures with us just as much as we wanted pictures with her so we went to the other side of the bar and took several pictures on about 5 smart phones and one camera. Julie is sitting in a chair in front with us around her. Left to right is Rebecca, Laura, Peggy, Susan, Cassandra, Laura, Victoria, Lynn, Jan and Cassie. What a beautiful bunch of ladies.

It was a fun night and so many wonderful people out I only wish I had got to talk more with everyone.

Well we left and as I was only a block away I drove Cassandra to her car which was 3 blocks away and Rebecca to where she had parked as it was about 25 out and windy which made it a lot colder. I have discovered that my female wardrobe is not designed for the really cold weather. Just an awesome night in all.

Thanks for reading and have a great day.
