My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Saturday night at Harvey’s Comedy club, once again.

It is Saturday night and our group are going to Harvey’s Comedy club. Now we have been coming here for several years till they closed last summer. It was sold and the new owners have reopened it. I was looking forward to tonight. Now we have gone here so many times but it is a fun night and it is out in a mainstream environment. I like these outings just like Starbucks as it gives us a chance to interact with everyone and let them see who we are. Now as I said it was a busy day and I didn’t get home till 6 pm so it was a rush to get ready.
What helped is I knew what I was wearing tonight and how I was going to do my makeup and as long as I didn’t change my mind I was good. The only problem was I wouldn’t have the time to relax and enjoy my getting ready. Well no changes in what I was wearing and I was all ready by 6:50 and on my way. I originally figured it would be after 8 and I would go straight to Harvey’s but as it was earlier than I thought I had time to go to Fox & Hounds and meet the other girls there first. It was almost 7:30 when I parked and walked to Fox & Hounds. Cassandra was playing pool with one of the girls and Peggy, Jan & Lynn were sitting at the bar. I joined them and we started to talk which is always fun, I love sitting around and talking with the girls. It was great to see them again and Peggy even had on a dress and heels. Melissa and Joan showed up so we had 7 of us here tonight. Now the lady working the Bar was really nice and it turns out she is one of the new owners, yes Fox & hounds was sold a few months back and they have changed the name to Second Ave Sports Bar. We talked for a while till about 8:30 before heading over to Harvey’s. Peggy and Cassandra drove and Jan & Lynn road with them and Melissa, Joan and I walked over. We could have drove but I enjoy the walk although it was a little on the cold side mainly because of the wind.

We got there not long after Cass, Peggy, Jan and Lynn did. We all sat and talked and waited for the rest of the girls to show up. Julie and Trixie were the next to show up and it was great to see them also, I so love my girlfriends. Jeanie and Cassie were the last two to show up so we had 11 of us here tonight. It started to get busy and it looks like they will have a good crowd here tonight. Now we were not sure about our table as we really know no one here now so as people got up to get in line to go in we joined them. We stood there for about 15 minutes and we even talked to the people in front of us and as they took pictures we were in the back ground. While we were in line the manager came over and welcomed us and told us it was nice to see us there and if we needed anything to let him know which was really nice and made us feel welcome.

We finally got inside and got a table, I sat between Peggy and Lynn with Julie and Trixie across from me but I was more to the middle of the table so I could almost talk with everyone which was nice. Of course, I had to get a couple pictures with a few of the girls and of course a selfie. We talked as people came in and we waited for the show. I was right there was a big crowd here tonight almost all the seats were taken. While we waited a man came over and talked with us, turned out he was one of the owners and again he welcomed us. Now I know being knew owners they are really excited and looking to grow their business but still a good feeling.

The waitress came and took our order and she was really nice, now again with new owners opening it up they have all new staff and this is only I think their 6 weekends so they are still working things out and we were used to the old staff who knew us and pretty much knew what we wanted so it is a learning curve on both sides but they did a really good job. She came back several times to check on us and made us feel welcome.

The show started and it was really good, all of the comedians were awesome, we all laughed so hard which made for a wonderful night. This really is one of the more fun events we do. Now we have a couple dinners the next few months but I am thinking we will get Harvey’s back into the schedule after the first of the year. Now the night went by way to fast as it really was an awesome show. Harvey’s is still a wonderful place to go for great comedy, if you are in Portland and want a fun night you must check them out. After the show we were standing by our table still talking as the crowd thinned out and yet another lady came up who worked here and said it was nice to see us here and thanked us for coming.

Now of course I have one other picture that I took with one of the other girls but I forgot to ask if I could post it so I cropped it down. I just loved the way my makeup looked in this picture and of course my smile. I always say a smile make you look better. An y way it was getting late and the girls started to leave. Melissa and I walked back to where we parked and it was a little colder out but still a nice walk. It was a great night out with friends. Thanks to all of you.

Thanks for reading and be sure to keep up on my what I am doing in my most recent blog.

Dinner with friends at Henry’s tavern

Well Saturday night I was meeting several of my friends from the group downtown Portland at Henry’s Tavern, now I have never been there before but several of the girls from the group had been there and said it was nice. I was really looking forward to this as I love going new places. We had reservations for 10 of us at 8 pm but were planning on meeting there at 7pm. Not knowing the parking situation I got there a little early and as luck would have it someone pulled out as I came around the corner so I found a spot really easy and only 2 blocks away. Now it was really cold out about 35 and of course I wore a short skirt and heel so the 2 block walk was a little cold.

I got to Henry’s right at 7 pm and went in; they were really busy with maybe a dozen people waiting. I checked with the hostess to see if anyone had checked in yet and they hadn’t so I went to check the bar which turns out is huge and has an second floor. There were no seats in the downstairs part of the bar and only a few in the upstairs but none of our group were there so I went back and took a seat by the door and waited. It was only a few minutes when Peggy and Teresa showed up so the 3 of us went to the bar on the second floor and found the one open table. It wasn’t long and Cassandra, Victoria, Trisha, Jessica and Cassie showed up. We were having a good time just talking when they told us our table was ready so we all went down to the restaurant part. We were still waiting for Lynn and Jan so we held off ordering for a little while and just continued our conversation. We were having a fun time.

There was a both right next to our table with for ladies at and soon Cassandra was chatting with them, turns out one of them was having a birthday, Betsy the other three were Holly, Ingra and Brooke. Well we all sang happy birthday to her and the next thing you know Cassandra is sitting next to Holly and Ingra getting pictures with two of them. It is amazing how Cassandra can do that. Well of course not wanting to miss out on a photo op I went and sat next to Brooke and Betsy and got some pictures. You can see all my pictures with different looks on my Flickr page. The girls were really awesome and didn’t seem to have a problem with us there.

We ordered food and everything looked good. Their prices are a little more than places we usually go but the food was awesome. I had their Macaroni and Cheese and it was awesome. Jan and Lynn finally showed up and joined us. Our waiter well he was awesome too, always referred to us as ladies and even offered to take some pictures of us so we could all be in the picture. It was a real enjoyable dinner and before we knew it, it was 10:30 pm; I don’t know where the time went. It seems every time we are out in a group the time goes by so fast. Well we spent a little time deciding where we wanted to go next and settled on Fox and Hound so off we went.

Now parking downtown Portland on a Saturday night at that time is almost impossible so several of us talked about car pooling down to make it easier so I rode with Trisha and Jessica, funny thing is everyone else just drove themselves. Any way the three of us walked the 2 blocks to their car. And it was really cold out by now especially my toes as my heels were open toe type. It was nice to have someone to walk with since it was so late out. Fox and hound is not that far away so it didn’t take long to get there.

We ordered some drinks and then just sat around and talked some more. Fox and Hound is not a really busy place and gives you a nice place to just sit and talk. It was such a fun night, just a group of ladies enjoying friends. They also have a pool table but none of us played pool which surprised me as some of the girls really love pool.

Well before we knew it, it was 1:30 am again the time went by so fast. We all walked out and said our goodbyes. Trisha and Jessica gave me a ride back to my car. Jessica had a pair of heels that were just a little too big for her and kept slipping off her heel. She also let me borrow her shawl that I liked for a bit which was really nice of her. As it turns out we wear almost the same size except that my feet are a little wider. I tried them on when I got home and the toes are tight but I had the same problem with them slipping off my heel of course I had on nylons so that may have been the reason they slip off. Maybe I will try them without nylons and see if that fit a little better.

It was such a fun night several of us talked about maybe doing a dinner once a month at a different restaurant which I think would be an awesome idea. We even talked a little about Diva Las Vegas and I think this year we may have several from the group go.

Fun night with friends.

Well it is Friday again and Susan was once again out with her friends. This week has been long and hard with lots of issues at work so I was ready for a relaxing night with my friends. I got home a little earlier than normal so I had extra time to get ready which is always so enjoyable, now yes I can always take the extra time and just get to the P-Club a little later but I so like my time out that I want to enjoy every minute of it. Anyway I started getting ready at 5 pm this week giving me a full 2 hours; it is so nice and relaxing to just take your time while getting ready. It really sets the mood for the while evening.

I was ready to leave right at 7 pm so I looked out my window and saw no one and my neighbor still was not home so there is the chance I could run into her while driving down the street as she gets home anywhere from 6:45 to 7:15 but I was not willing to wait as Susan wanted out. Didn’t have to worry as I drove away and did not run into her so glad I did not wait.

I got to the P-club and went in; only Cristine and Bobby were there. Now I figured it would be a slow night as Cassandra and her wife are on vacation and it seems when she is gone the amount of the group that comes out dwindles as she really can get the group active as she has such a friendly outgoing personality that just attracts people. Well we ordered dinner while we waited to see who else would show up. About 15 minutes later Robin got there and the 4 of us ate dinner and just talked and for a while it looked like it would just be the 4 of us.

A little before 9 Kristy and Samantha showed up. Kristy is new to the group and only her second time out with the group so it was nice she could make it plus I got to talk to her more and get to know her better. One of the advantages of having a smaller turnout on a Friday. They joined us and we sat there all talking about different things. It is strange how as Susan I can just sit around and chat and have so much fun but as my male self I want to be doing something, I guess Susan is just a more laid back relaxed person which is so wonderful.

Cindy came over and asked if she could join us, she is a GG we met there when we first started coming to the P-club. She is there most Fridays as she love to dance and her husband works late so she will come there and dance. She joined right in with our conversation which at this point was on heels; turns out she does not really like to wear them. Cindy wanted to play pool so she and I played a game. Neither one of us will ever make a living shooting pool but we had fun. I won the first game and she won the second so it was a draw. Well by this time the music was playing and off she went to the dance floor. But it was nice to spend a little time with her.

I went back and joined Robin, Kristy and Samantha at the table and we continued our conversation. Kristy brought her camera and wanted some pictures so she went and posed by the pinball machines and I took a couple pictures of her. From what I could see they turned out pretty good, she will post them to the group I am sure as what t-girl does not like to have pictures of them all pretty and having fun. By now our group had got a little bigger as Jan, Lynn and Cassie had shown up so we were spread across 3 tables now.

Danielle even showed up which was so nice. She has been in town since the middle of May and is here living full time as Danielle while she thinks about transitioning. She will be leaving us this Sunday to go back home to Arizona. It was so nice to meet her and she is such a wonderful person I am sure everyone in the group will miss her. I was glad she could make it so we could all say goodbye. We all wished her the best of luck whatever she decides and told her we hope she can come back to Portland every once in a while. She gave me her e-mail address so we can keep in touch and maybe when I go to Diva Las Vegas next year we can get together as she does not live that far from Las Vegas, yes we did all talk about Diva Las Vegas again. I just had so much fun the last two years and think it would be great to have a group of us all go down for it.

So in all we had 10 from our group there which was a low turnout but still a lot of fun and when you look back a year or two we would have loved to have 10 show up on one night. It was a fun night as we were all there together. By midnight some of the group started to leave and by 12:30 we were down to just Cassie, Jan, Lynn and I and as it had been a long day we all decided it was time to call it a night. This was early for me as normally it is closer till 2 when I leave but it would be nice to get to bed a little earlier as I was really tired.

The next 2 weeks will be very busy as this coming week I work later hours so my not be able to make Starbucks and the following week I have to work many many hours so that week it will be tough to even get any Susan time so may be my last post for a while. I still hope that I will be able to find some time but will be last minute if I do so I won’t have the fun of planning it. Strange when I know I will be out as Susan the day or two before just the thinking about it has a calming effect on me that is what will truly be missing because I know I will find sometime over the next two weeks to be Susan.

Have a Great Week and thanks for reading.
