My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Saturday night at Harvey’s Comedy club to see Julie Scoggins

It is Saturday night and our group is going to Harvey’s Comedy Club to see Julie Scoggins. Now I am not sure but I know we have gone and seen her at least 5 times before maybe 6, she is wonderfully funny. We have been going to Harvey’s now almost every month for maybe 7 or 8 years now it is one of our groups favorite night out. Now normally we go to Fox & Hounds first around 7 before going over to Harvey’s but sadly Fox & Hounds has closed so tonight we are meeting at Harvey’s at 8.

I started getting ready about 5 a little later then in the past but then I didn’t have to leave as early. I was ready and on my way by 7. I got downtown and parked about a block away and walked to Harvey’s, of course I had to get a selfie in the car, a little dark but the one with the flash was bad. Yes, I do have bad pictures, I have had people tell me I always have such good pictures. Here is my secret, only post the good ones, shhhh don’t tell. as I got by their parking lot Cassandra was dropping off Peggy as Peggy made cupcakes for tonight as it is Julies Birthday today, happy birthday Julie. She had two trays so I took one and told Cassandra there was still 2 parking spots behind where I parked so she said she would drive around the block and see if they were still there. Peggy and I walked about 100 feet towards the door and you would not believe it, there were 2 parking spots right in front of the door and Cassandra parked there

We went in and we were the first ones there as it was only about 7:40 we put 3 tables together as we had a big group tonight, 22 all here to see Julie Scoggins. Now it wasn’t long and others started to show up. The funny thing is Julie Scoggins came out as she was not on yet for the earlier show and talked with us for a while and yes hugs for everyone, she is so awesome. Now Julie and Trixie showed up but we waited for others before we had cupcakes. Of course, when we did we all sang Happy Birthday to her and even a few people from tables around us joined in and sang to her. Okay let’s see how goo my memory is as I am going to try and list all from our group. There was Cassandra, Peggy, Julie, Trixie, Jan, Lynn, Laura H, Max, Sophie, Lorna, Kimberly, Melissa, Kate, Barb, Michelle, Nancy, Jennie, Amy, Cassie, and of course me. Wow I am missing two guess my memory is not that good.

The earlier show went long so it was almost 9:40 when they started coming out. Julie Scoggins had a table set up right next to us to sell stuff and of course meet people and take pictures. One lady tried a couple times to get a selfie with Julie and was having trouble so I told her my secret. Her it is, set your self timer for 2 seconds. That way you can push the button and then hold the phone out and it has time to focus before taking the picture. Only way I can get a selfie. She thanked me for the tip.

It was finally time to go in, Peggy, Trixie and I were the first from our group to go in and of course they had our tables all set up. Our waitress came over and had on a beautiful red lipstick and I was just getting ready to compliment her on it but she complimented me first, yes, I also had red lipstick on. We talked a few seconds about how much we both like the red lipsticks before she took our orders. Soon our whole group was in and it was packed. Harvey’s sold out both shows tonight which was awesome to see. Always more fun with a big crowd. Of course, there were more pictures taken and one more selfie.

The show started late about 10:30, the MC who gets a few minutes to tell jokes before he introduces the comedian was good. Then there were 2 opening comedians and they were both good. After them was the featured comedian and he was awesome. We were all laughing by this time and having a wonderful time.

Finally, it was time for Julie to come on stage. She was so awesome and even though we have heard some of her stuff it was still funny. She was incredible, if you ever get to see her perform you will have a blast. Also, if you are looking for a fun night out defiantly check out Harvey’s Comedy Club, you will have a blast. As I said we have come here for years and this is at least my 57th time here and we have never had a bad show, yes some are better like tonight but they are all good.

After the show we talked for a little bit to let the crowd thin out, we also met one of the other owners tonight so we have met 2 of them. I am not sure if it is just the 2 of them or if they have a 3rd owner but they are very nice and treated us well and told us we were welcome anytime. Makes you feel good. On our way out, we all talked briefly with Julie Scoggins, it was great to see her again. It was 12:30 when the show got over so it will be a late night.

Now Julie and Trixie took an Uber here so I am giving them a ride home which was nice as it gave us a chance to talk a little. They are going out of town for a couple months so I won’t see them till we go to Diva Las Vegas which is sad as it is so much fun to go out with them. Even Cassandra and Peggy are on vacation for the next 2 weeks so I won’t see them either. I dropped them off at Julie’s house and then headed home. It was after 1:30 am when I got home, can’t remember the last time I was out this late but it was worth it.

Thanks for reading and be sure and see what Susan is up to on my most recent blog.

Out for a fun night at Harvey’s Comedy Club

Okay I have been out all day, a little shopping and then at Starbucks avoiding the wind and rain, but now it is time to get ready to go to Harvey’s Comedy Club. I got hoe about :30 and quickly touched up my makeup, well parts I had to redo after being out all day. I was already, I had chosen my red and black dress as it is more of a winter dress, nice and warm and really cute. I decided to go online really quick before leaving and it was a good thing I did. I don’t know why I pulled up last months blog on Harvey’s and to my shock I had worn the same red and black dress. I was in a panic now, no one would probably remember unless they looked at the picture but I had to change so it was back upstairs to pick out a new outfit. I went with my blue and black dress which is also cute.

I got downtown Portland right at 7 and was lucky enough to find a parking spot right on the corner by Fox & Hound. Some of us meet here before walking over to Harvey’s but with the weather I wasn’t sure how many would show up here or go right to Harvey’s. I walked in and I was the first one from our group. I sat at the bar for a little bit wondering if anyone else would show up. It really wasn’t long and Laura H. and Lisa walked in followed by Cassandra. WE went over and put a couple tables together as we waited to see who else would show up. Well it wasn’t long and we put 2 more tables together as a lot of girls showed up here. We actually have one of our bigger groups tonight as Julie Scoggins is the headliner tonight at Harvey’s and we love her as she is so fun. We have had big groups before but most meet us at Harvey’s. Okay I am going to take a shot at naming them all and hope I don’t miss any. Cassandra, Laura H. Lisa, and one of their friends, Jan, Lynn, Laura M and Donna, Karen, Jamie and her girlfriend, Melissa and her wife, Keri, and of course me so we had 15 of us meet here at fox and hounds. We all talked of course with this many people you couldn’t really talk with everyone, the only bad thing about big groups.

It was great to see so many out, of course as it got closer to the time to leave we talked more about if we should walk over or drive as the weather today has been really strong winds and heavy rain. it was about 8:30 when we all got ready to leave and as it was not raining and not really windy we decided to walk instead of trying to find parking spots over by Harvey’s. It actually was a nice walk as it really wasn’t cold but in the back of my mind I wondered what it would be like after the show as a lot can happen in 3 to 4 hours.

We got to Harvey’s and Cristine was there already, Now I got to sit by Melissa and her wife so I got a chance to get to know her wife a little. it is always nice to talk to someone who accepts and supports their spouses other side. This is something that many of us wonder about as it really is hard to meet someone and then tell them by the way I like to dress as a girl and go out. It would be easier to meet them this way but that is also hard to do. I bring this up as I don’t normally cross my two sides of my life but there is a lady who gave me her phone number well my male side and we actually met once to talk and now I am wondering what to do. She seems nice although she is younger then me but the big issue is she works where my parents are living now. That is how I met her when I was visiting them. This is where the problem is because if I do tell her and she is not okay with it then I have to worry if she will say anything to my parents. After all my neighbor that knows about Susan also works at the same place, boy is this complicated and I am getting off track of tonight’s outing. Any way Melissa wife seems really nice.

I also sat next to Keri who I haven’t seen since Diva Las Vegas in 2015. It was great to see her again and talk with her. It is amazing how you can go so long without seeing or talking with someone and once you start talking with them it is like you have talked with them all the time. It wasn’t long and Cassie, Victoria Sophie, Julie and Trixie showed up so we had 21 for tonight, Hope I didn’t miss anyone. 

It was great to see Julie and Trixie out tonight and to talk with them. I am hoping I can get together with Julie this week also and go out to lunch or shopping, maybe go look at wigs. I love my girl time out and I am happy to go shopping of to Starbucks by myself but it really is more fun to have a girlfriend with you, now I know why you see girls in pairs so often.

There was a group of men here tonight and one was celebrating a birthday so Kim brought them over to meet us and of course Cassandra had to get pictures with the birthday boy and all his friends took pictures. I really think Cassandra is right after having fun with them and interacting with them I think they are more relaxed around us and accept us. they get past the wondering who we are and why we are. By the way Kim had her hair in a braid on one side and it really looked cute, I think we look forward to seeing her as much as the show.

It was time and we all went in for the show. Now it was funny as we were talking about how we all forget about taking pictures but tonight when we got inside several of us started to take pictures, Julie, Cassandra, Keri and I I got a lot of really good pictures but forgot to ask some of the people if I could post them so I 20161015_235157will only share a couple of me and one with Julie as she has let me post ones of us before, hope that’s okay Julie.

Now it wasn’t a real big crowd tonight but Still fun. Julie Scoggins came around to our table to say hi before the show. I think she looks forward to seeing us as much as we look forward to seeing her. She comes to Portland once a year in October, if you ever get a chance to see her perform you must.

The show started and the opening comedian was really good, we have seen him before and he is a local, his name is Jake and I only remember this20161015_215339 because one of his jokes is about Jake from state farm. Funny the things you remember. The next comedian was also really good although I don’t remember his name. Harvey’s really di have 3 really good comedians tonight.

Julie Scoggins was awesome as always. she put n a really good show and we all laughed the whole time. it was a really good night out. After the sow Kim came over and talked with us. It was nice talking with her. I really do need to try to get together with her sometime. I think that will be my goal to do by the end of the year. After the show 20161015_235056we took a few more pictures and I had to get one of my dress, Thanks Julie for taking it. Wow I really need to work on a feminine pose.

Most f us were going back to Fox & Hound and my fears walking over were not justified as it was still not raining and no wind so the storm must have let up. Julie Scoggins was going to go to Fox & Hounds with us, Julie and Trixie were also going over so they gave Karen, Cassandra and I a ride back.

We had a great time at Fox & Hounds talking with Julie Scoggins. of those who went to Fox & Hounds I was the first one to call it a night and it was almost 2 am when I left. Wow I can’t remember the last time this girl was out that late. Of course Julie wanted a picture with all of us and we all wantedDSCN0004 one with her so we did one big group picture and Ricky from the bar took it for us, thanks Ricky. What a great night it was.

Thanks for reading

This is going to be a fun week for Susan!

Update as I just looked at Julie Scoggins Facebook page and she had the names of the other 2 comedian. Jake Silberman and Nariko Ott. Also was on Harvey’s Facebook page. I guess I will have to remember to check that for information.
