Wednesday night dinner at Who Song & Larry’s

Well another Wednesday night and that means dinner with my friends, tonight we are going to Who Song & Larry’s in Vancouver. Now I thought we had been here recently but looking back in my blog it was actually early December when we last had dinner here. Well I posted in the group and we had 8 of us say we would be there so Wednesday afternoon I called and made reservations just in case. Now I got home a little early so I had time to enjoy my getting ready which makes the night even better. I even did the false eye lashes again and they went on pretty easy and looked good. I was ready by 6 and on my way. I figured I could get there early and check in and then sit at the bar and wait for others and have some of their wonderful bean dip. It was about 6:25 when I got there and parking was easy so I knew they were not that busy. I went in and checked in and they said they could have our table ready in a few minutes but I told them I would wait in the bar till a few more of our girls showed up. I sat at the bar and ordered a sprite and their bean dip as I waited. I didn’t have to wait long as Jenifer showed up about 6:35 so we went to the table to wait for others.

It wasn’t long and Cassandra showed up and then Kimberly and her wife and also Barb. 1 of our girls’ shad to cancel so we were just waiting for one more, Alison. Well about 7:15 we all ordered and I think most of us got what we always order here. Well about 5 minutes later Alison showed up. now I think I have met her once before maybe a year ago but it was nice to talk to her again and get to know her a little better. We all sat and talked as we waited for our dinner. Now our waiter who we have had several times before was just as awesome as last time and again I think the manager came over to check on us and see if we needed anything. Now of course I had to get my nightly selfie.

We all sat and talked and as I sat to the middle, I was able to talk a little with everyone which is always nice. Cassandra and I talked a little about Diva Las Vegas which is on 5 weeks away, wow it as coming up fast. Right now, going for sure from Portland are Cassandra, Julie, Veronica, Michele, Brenda, me of course and one other girl and we are all booked at the Flamingo on the Strip. It is going to be fun again. Looking at the information they have sent out there are 163 right now signed up which I think is more then last year and we are still 5 weeks away so that number should rise but what is interesting is besides the normal USA, Mexico and Canada they also have someone from Europe and also Australia registered.

Our food came and it was wonderful as always. It was a wonderful dinner out with my friends, I really do enjoy these types of outings. It just makes our lives seem so normal and I know that may not sound right as we are normal but for years it was something I did only in my house and then only at LGBT places. The fact we are just going to pretty much any place we want and being treated like everyone else is really wonderful. We really are just like everyone else and for the mot part that is how the people around us see us.

We finished out dinners and then just sat there talking as they really were not busy tonight and I am sure they were glad tohave our group there. We stayed till after 9 actually almost 9:30 before we called it a night and I think we might have been the last to leave. It was just such a fun night we hated to see it come to an end but I did get a good chance to talk to Alison and get to know her better. She really is nice and I hoe she does come out more with the group. We all walked out to the parking lot and said our goodbyes before going our separate ways home. Now I am looking forward to Saturday night at the Escape.

Thanks for reading and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new in my life as Susan.

Wednesday night dinner at Who Song & Larry’s

Well it is Wednesday night and I get to go out with my friends for dinner. I have missed several and will miss the next few but tonight I have free. Well last week we decided on Who Song & Larry’s for dinner and as this time of year places can be busy, I posted it to our group last Friday and said I would make reservations Monday night. now I figure we would be okay as the Christmas Ships don’t start till tomorrow and that is when they really get busy. Last year we showed up and almost didn’t get in but we lucked out and they had 1 table open upstairs. Well by Monday we had 12 say they were going including me so I called and made reservations for 12. Well y 10 that night I had 3 more post they wanted to go so I told them I would try to change the reservation on Tuesday which I was able to do so we had a group of 15 of us going. I think that is our biggest night at Who Song & Larry’s.

Well I got home a little early so I had time to get ready and enjoy the experience of becoming Susan. I was ready by 6, our reservations are not till 7 and it only takes me 15 minutes or less to get there so I waited till about 6:10 before leaving and just figured I would be early and could wait in the bar for others to show up and our table to be ready. It was about 6:20 when I got there and their parking lot was surprisingly empty. I parked almost right in front and started in when I herd my name. Nicole must have arrived at the same time so we walked in together. I checked in and gave the lady my name and she said our table was ready and we could be seated so Nicole and I skipped the bar and just went to our table to wait for the others. It was nice as it gave us a chance to talk. Now I am guessing people are waiting for the Christmas ships as there was only one table with 2 people at it and that was it. We ordered drinks and I got some bean dip as they have really good bean dip, I could make a meal out of it. It was about 6:50 when others started to show up, Melissa, Barb, Jan, Lynn, Jennifer, Ricki, Judy, Dawnie, Ellie May, April and then finally Trisha and Danika in all, all 15 showed up. by now the other 2 people had left so it was just us but that wouldn’t last long. A couple woman came in and were seated at a booth and then a man and woman came in and they were seated by the windows. One of the girls got a group picture which was nice as I forgot. Now with that I did get a selfie which is below.

Well we all ordered dinner, I really wasn’t that hungry as the girls really didn’t help me that much with my bean dip so I ate most of it. Our waiter was wonderful we have had him the last several times we have come here. He usually does our order by memory but we had a much bigger group then last time. We all had a wonderful time talking but with such a big group I couldn’t talk with everyone which was sad, that is the only thing bad about such a big group. I had 2 to my right and 5 to my left. I did make sure I said hi to everyone as they came in. I really do want everyone to feel welcome and comfortable when they come out with the group. Our food started coming out and it took both our waiter and another young man to bring it all out. Actually, our waiter brought the first tray out and then as he was serving us the other man kept bringing trays.

We had a wonderful dinner and it really never did get busy as a matter of fact I think it was just us and the 2 other groups of 2 tonight so I am sure. We finished eating and then sat and talked more, it was just such a nice evening. It was after 9 and a few of the girls called it a night, it was sad to see them leave but we were able to move closer so we could all talk better. One of the ladies from upfront came back to thank us for coming in, not sure if she was the manager or just in charge tonight but she was really happy we were there and she remembered we came last year. Our group was probably most of their business tonight. It was about 9:30 when we all left and went home.

Wednesday night dinner at Who Song and Larry’s

It is Wednesday and once again I get to go out as Susan and have dinner with my friends. This really is a wonderful thing that 10 years ago I never would have thought possible. Now we picked Who Song and Larry’s in hopes Julie could join us one last tie before she heads south for warmer weather for the winter but she had an early flight and wouldn’t be able to make it which was sad but she will be with us in spirit. I got home late from work so I started getting ready right away as I wanted to get there a little early as they have awesome homemade chips and I love their bean dip so I figured I could get there early and get our name in for a table and have a snack. I was ready about 6:15 and since it only takes about 15 minutes to get there, I would be early. I texted Melissa to confirm how many we had, counting e-mails I figured 5 or 6. Melissa texted back that she had made reservations for 5. I got there and usually parking is bad but not tonight so I got a spot almost right in front. I went in and checked in and then went to the bar to get my drink and some chips with bean dip.

Melissa showed up about 10 minutes later and then barb. It was about 6:50 when the girl came and said our table was ready although I think we could have gotten it faster if we asked as they were not busy tonight, everyone was back in the big room and that is where our table was also. There were a lot of people back here including one big group of maybe 20, turn out it was a birthday party for a young girl about 10 or 12, all the kids were eating at the end of the table closest to us and the adults the other end of the table. Kris showed up right at 7, it was nice to see her out as this maybe one of the last times we see her for a while. She is moving up to the Seattle area for a year for schooling. The last to show was Jamie, she is a member of our group who lives in Arizona, I met here at Diva Las Vegas back in 2018. She has followed my blog for years and we e-mailed some and when we were at Diva Las Vegas we met and hot it off and she joined our group as she travels for work. Well this week she is in town working and got to join us. It was so nice to see her again and get to talk with her. now I did get a few pictures with her later in the evening, this was the best.

We all talked for a while before we ordered. Our waiter who we have had several times before was awesome as always. Now the staff came out to sing happy birthday to the young girl at the next table so we all joined in with everyone to sing to her. We went back to talking, well about 10 minutes later the birthday girl came over and gave Jamie a big cupcake as they had extra and wanted to know if she wanted it. Jamie accepted and thanked her; it was so sweet. Now besides our waiter we had another young man who would come by and see if we needed anything and I think it was even the Manager stopped by one time to see if we needed anything and if we did just let him know. Now I always joke about the wonderful service we always seem to get, any way one of the moms at the next table was standing there and after he left she smiled at me and said wow you ladies seem to get the best service so I guess it was not just my imagination.

Our food came and we had a wonderful dinner and great conversation and I took several pictures of all f us and texted them to Julie as she missed tonight. Of course, one of the pictures had to be a selfie of me. Our food was

wonderful and we just had a wonderful night out. After we ate Jamie shared her cupcake with all of us and it was really good. We sat and talked for a while and got to hear about the group in Arizona Jamie belongs to. they go out pretty regular but not as mainstream of places as we do. Our group really has grown over the last 12 years from just one LGBT club, to a few different ones, to just picking a restaurant and going. Portland metro area really is accepting and we can pretty much go where ever we want with no problems and that is such a wonderful thing.

It was now 9 and people were leaving and the big group went by and a some of them told us goodbye and the one that I had talked with before about the service told us how nice we looked and wished us a goodnight. That made the evening. Now they are open till 10 but soon we found we were the only ones left inside just sitting there talking. It was about 9:45 when we called it a night, the lady at the front desked thanked us for coming in and told us to come back. Now we have been coming here for years, and I am not sure but this might be the one we have gone to for the longest that we still go to. The first time we went here as a group for in December of 2009 for our holiday dinner. I have even met Peggy once here for dinner years ago.

Well we all said our goodbyes which is always hard, I won’t see Jamie again till Diva Las Vegas, yes at this point I am planning on going and so is she. I would have liked to get together with her again before she left but the only night, she had open was Friday night and I had something I just couldn’t get out of. We left and went our separate ways and it was a little after 10 when I got home and washed away all the traces of Susan and went to be.

Thanks for reading and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new in my life.

Wednesday night dinner at Who Song & Larry

It is Wednesday night and our group is having dinner at Who Song & Larry’s on the Columbia river. Last time we were here was back in December so it has been a while. Now we had 8 post they would be there and 2maybes so it should be a good turnout tonight. I got home from work late so it would be another fast transformation, I really like it more when I can take my time and enjoy getting ready. I talk to some of my female friends and a lot of them don’t like the time it takes to do full makeup and I keep wondering if I will get to that point someday. After all some of them have been doing makeup every day for 40 years so I can understand why they may not find it as fun as when they were teenagers. I just hope I never lose the enjoyment of doing my makeup and I don’t think I will. This is my 1,187th blog post so that means I have gone out as Susan that many times plus all the times early on when I just dressed or did my makeup at home and it is just as much fun today as back then. Wow it is hard to believe I have written that many blogs. Well I started getting ready at 5:30 and was ready and on my way by 6:15. Now as I was leaving it looked like it might rain so I took my coat and I was right. I got about a block from my house and the bottom fell out, it was raining so hard for a few miles that cars on the freeway were only going about 30 and there was thunder and lighting also something we don’t see around here very often. As I got close the rain slowed down which was nice and by the time, I got to the parking lot it had stopped.

I took advantage of the break in the rain and went right in. they didn’t look that busy so I went to see if we could get a table for 8 to 10 and the lady at the counter said she would go see what they had. While I was waiting Melissa and her wife walked in, I thought that was them behind me when I pulled into the parking lot. They had a table ready wo the of us went and sat down and waited for the rest to show up. It wasn’t long and Barb showed up followed by Jan & Lynn and then Kimberly and her wife so we actually had wives here tonight which was awesome. Our waiter came and took our orders, we have always had wonderful service here and tonight was just the same. Now I know some girls get caught up in how well they pass and that can be a driving force and can keep some girls from ever going out. Tonight, we all passed, not because they really believed we were female but because they accepted us as females and treated us that way. I am sure we got some looks but we were able to enjoy a dinner out as friends like everyone else and that is what it is all about.

Now Kimberly’s wife has gone out with her before I think but this was the first time meeting the group so I think it was great we had 2 other wives here tonight. Melissia’s wife was seated right across from Kimberly’s wife so they talked most of the night. of course, we all got to talk with her and learn a little about her, these dinners are great for that as they are smaller groups and, in a setting, where it is easy to talk. Of course, we also could look out the windows on the Columbia river and see the rain and lightning although it was tapering off now. Our food came and we had a wonderful dinner, the food here is really good by the way. It was nice to talk with everyone, and have a wonderful night out with my friends. Barb is getting ready for her yearly trip for the summer so it maybe a few months before she is out with the group again. I really do have some wonderful friends as Susan.

After we ate, we sat and talked some more, Kimberly’s wife is really nice and I hope she comes out more with the group. We actually have quiet a few wives or significant others that are supportive of their spouse and even come out with them which is so awesome. It was after 9 when we all called it a night, as we walked out it was a little cool for the end of June but at least it wasn’t raining. We said our goodbyes and made our way to our cars. It is always sad when these evening end but I know Susan will be out again and I will get to see and spend time with my friends.

I got home and got ready for bed and removed my makeup and that is when I know my evening is over, when I see my male self-looking back at me. Thanks for reading and be sure and check out my most recent blog to see what is knew in my life as Susan.

Wednesday night dinner at Who Song & Larry

Wednesday is here and again our group is going out to dinner and this week it is Who Song & Larry’s. This is always a fun night and a fun place to go. I started getting ready early taking my time doing my makeup as I think about what I can wear tonight. I think that is one of the wonderful things about being Susan is the thought about what I should wear, which heels, dress or outfit, hair, how to do my makeup and the look I want. I actually enjoy this time thinking about this this stuff.

I was all ready by 5:45 and on my way, I got to Who Song and Larry’s a little after 6 and went in. They were not as busy tonight as they were the last few times we have come here. I got inside and the man at the desk greeted me and asked if I wanted a table. I told him I was waiting for others as we had a group coming tonight. He was very accommodating and said he would set up tables and asked how many we had which I didn’t know so I texted Cassandra to get the number. Turns out she had just arrived and was in the parking lot. She came in and we told him we had 8 for dinner and he said he would get us set up. Cassandra and I went into the bar to wait for others. Cassandra and I both ordered a drink and of course tortilla chips and bean dip, they have the best fresh made chips and a cheese bean dip, I could make a meal out of this alone.

Melissa and her wife showed up next followed by Kate. They ordered drinks and we talked for a few minutes before moving to our table. Now as I said they were not busy at all tonight, one other big group of 6 and a few more tables of 2 to 4 and that was it. Our waiter came over to see if we needed anything and he was really wonderful of course we have always had wonderful service here. We told him we were waiting for a few more so he brought use more chips and salsa as we waited. Julie showed up next and then Barb so we had 7 tonight for dinner. Our waiter came back and took our orders, most of us had the special, all you can eat enchiladas which after all the chips and dip I really don’t need the all you can eat but the cost is about the same as just getting a regular dinner. Now our waiter didn’t write anything down he did it all from memory all 7 orders. We all had fun with this and he did a really good job just a couple minor mistakes that he corrected.

The food was good, if you like Mexican food this is a wonderful place to eat. We had a nice dinner and wonderful conversation. WE talked about our Mexican Cruise in October which we are all looking forward to. We also talked about Diva Las Vegas and our dinner this Saturday, we really do have a wonderful and active group here in Portland. The food was great and we even had a little desert which was awesome. A couple of the girls ordered them and shared them with all. One was the Bunuelo caramel Sunday which was really good, the other was Sopapillas which were awesome.

It was a wonderful night as it always is when I go out with my friends for dinner. I am really looking forward to Saturdays night dinner. Now I start my vacation Friday evening and I had planned to have the whole week to be Susan but that won’t happen although I will get a good amount of tome as Susan. I was also going to get my nails done with a red gel polish Friday night, yes, I will start my vacation with a manicure and pedicure. But as I will not be able to be Susan for the whole week but I am thinking of getting my normal color Wedding Dress and then having them put regular nail polish on in a red color that I can take off with polish remover. I also plan on doing some shopping as I need a new purse, mine is probably 8 years old and starting to wear out. I plan on getting together with Peggy for lunch and shopping and maybe some other girls. It will be a fun week.

It was almost 10 when we left Who Song & Larry’s. it was sad to see the night end but I have to get up early in the morning.

Thanks for reading and be sure to see what’s new in my life as Susan in my most recent blog.

Wednesday night dinner at Who Song & Larry

It is Wednesday night and I am going to dinner with my friends at Who Song & Larry’s. This is always a fun dinner place as the people here are awesome. Now dinner is at 7 but I know Cassandra is going to get there at 6 to watch the Baseball playoffs before dinner so that is my goal also. I started getting ready a little after 4 as I wanted to take my time and enjoy the experience of getting all pretty. I took my time on my makeup and actually tried 3 different dresses before I picked the one I wore, my blue with black on the sides. I also went with my dark brown wig tonight. Here is a picture in the car. I was on my way looking forward to a fun night.

I got to Who Song & Larry’s just before 6 and went in, Funny how I don’t even think about getting out of the car. Years ago, I use to sit in the car to build up the courage, now Susan is just a part of my life. And yes, Susan is a big part of my life and a big part of who I am. Cassandra was sitting at the barf watching the game so I joined her, it was nice to be out. We talked as we watched the game and waited for others to show up. Of course, we had some of their fresh made tortilla chips and bean dip. It is so good, I could make a meal out of just that and I almost did.

Melissa and her wife were the next to show up and they both noticed my hair, I don’t wear it that often wear it as I am not sure of dark hair on me but it does feel nice to have people notice when you change your hair. I guess in that way I am such a girl. Yes, I do love to look pretty. Kearren was the next to show up followed by Barb. I really love these dinners out with my friends.

It was a little after 7 when we went to our table and yes Cassandra could still watch the game across the room. I sat next to Melissa and her wife and across from Cassandra, Barb and Kearran. It is nice to have these smaller more intimate groups. Julie showed up and sat next to me. It was great to see her and of course I had to show her my nails as we both love getting our nails done. So yes, I am going to talk about my nails. N ow when I got my nails done Saturday Cathy put a light pink color on them and I was worried about them and I didn’t really come across as liking it when she did it. Now indoors the nails have a nice healthy color to it although you can tell there is polish on them. Outside in the sun they have a slight pale pink color and yes if you get a good look at them you can tell as you can see from the pictures in my last blog. The other day though I was out side in the sun and walked into the shade and wow my nails had a pinkish violate color that was really noticeable as you can see from this picture. These are the same nails one in shade and one in sun light. The funny thing is I really love this polish

and look on my nails. I wish I had paid attention to the polish she used as I want to get it the next time.

I know people will notice and probably already have but no one has said a thing. In a way I am a little disappointed but also glad at the same time. My nails really do look awesome. These are pictures of same nails one outside in shade and one inside, wow what a difference. It is funny how far I have come. Now I know some of my friends keep telling me I really want to transition and no I do not. I have no desire to be a woman full time but I do believe the two sides of me can be a part of me all the time. At the very least I am sure it will raise some questions but I do love nice looking nails. What do you think of my nails, is it too much for me as a male?

Well back to our dinner out. Our waitress came over, her name is Venessa and she was awesome, she made a point of learning all our names and called us by them all night and she had the nicest southern accent, she is from North Carolina. We all ordered dinner well I ordered from the appetizer menu as I really did eat to many chips earlier. We had a wonderful dinner and enjoyable conversation. It was a little after 8 when Bambi and Kris showed up so they ordered dinner as we were finishing but it was great they made it. So, we had 9 of us here tonight.

After dinner we just sat and talked for a while. Barb and Kearren were the first to leave and then Melissa and her wife. I was having too much fun just being out with friends that even though I had to get up early for work I stayed. Venessa a=our waitress came over a few times and talked with us. She really was wonderful and made us feel so welcome. She actually has a friend who dresses so I gave her one of my cards with my e-mail on it and told her to give it to her friend if she wanted to join our group. Also gave her one for her as Cassandra invited them to her Halloween party. I really hope she contacts me as it would be great if they came to the party.

It was after 10 when we called it a night. Julie and I are going out both Friday and Saturday night. I am looking forward to going out again this weekend. Thanks for reading

Wednesday night dinner at Who Song & Larry

Wednesday is here and I am going out to dinner with my friends, we are going to Who Song & Larry. We have gone here several times and it is always a fun night with good food. I was looking forward to dinner. Now I started getting ready taking my time and I had my Red and Black dress all set out to wear. I started doing my make up and it turned out really well. Now it was time to get dressed and of course I changed my mind and went with my black and gold dress instead.

I got to Who Song and Larry by 6:20 so I was early as we were not meeting till 7. Well early or not I decided to go inside and wait for others to show up. now as I entered there was a group of about 8 young ladies guessing early 20’s there waiting for a table and they were all in dresses and heels. I really love it when I see other girls all dressed up. As I walked by them I saw Jan and Lynn sitting in the bar so I went and joined them. Now Cassandra called me about 6:35 as she was caught in traffic. I checked with the host and turns out they were really busy with a couple big parties. I told her we had 8 tonight coming and she told me it would be about an hour. I told her that was fine as our girls were caught in traffic.

I went back and joined Jan & Lynn in the bar. The group of girls came up to get drinks while they waited for there table. Now as I said they were all dressed really nice but the one had pink hair and it really looked cute on her so I just had to tell her how cute her hair was, she thanked me and we chatted for just a moment. It was just about 7 when Cassandra showed up. Now the 4 of us talked in the bar as we waited, both for the rest of our group to show up and also our table. Bambi and Kris showed up so we were up to 6 now. The lady came over and told us they had a group just leaving and would clean the table and get it set up for us as soon as they could and thanked us for being so nice about the wait. I really didn’t think anything about the wait as we were having a good time talking. Our table was finally ready and we were shown to it. It was a little before 8, wow it didn’t seem like were waited that long.

Joan showed up right after we sat down and it wasn’t long and Kim showed up. Kim is our favorite waitress from Harvey’s and have come out with us before to Who Song and Larry’s. It was good to see her here in a social setting as at Susan at Who Song & LarryHarvey’s she is working but tonight we can talk more. It was a really fun night with good food and conversation. Now as I said we have come here several times before and we always get the same waiter but tonight he was working a big party in the back room so we got another waitress named Leah and she was really nice and treated us well.

Now I really did eat to much as they have the best chips and salsa as they make them fresh here so the chips are warm when they bring them to the table. I could make a meal out of them. For dinner I had the all you can eat Enchilada’s, really good.

After dinner we sat and talked for so more. The night went by so fast, it was hard to believe. soon it was after 10. As we were getting ready to go I took the opportunity to get a couple quick selfie’s. As we were leaving Leah our waitress wished us a good evening and called me by my name which was nice.

Susan at Who Song & LarryIt was 10:20 when we left. it was a fun night out with good friends. I stayed out a lot later then I planned but it was worth it although in the morning I may not feel the same way.

Now my little advice to all, be happy with yourself and who you are. If you cant’s find joy and happiness in yourself other people will not change that. Also find supportive friends that you can get together with, talk and go places. The more you go out the easier it becomes and it will open a whole new world to you.

Thanks for reading.

Dinner out with friends

Well I got a chance to go out to dinner tonight. Our group is trying to increase where we go so we have started doing dinners at different places and tonight was Who Song & Larry’s in Vancouver on the water front. I have actually come here 3 times before so I was really looking forward to it. We were meeting there at 7 and wouldn’t you know it I got home late, it was 5:15 when I walked through the door at home so I had to rush. It was straight into the shower and then getting ready. While I showered I was thinking about what I should wear tonight as that is always the hard part.

I started my makeup and had an idea of what I would wear but by the time I got my makeup done I wasn’t sure my makeup was right. as I was looking at my dresses I saw my black and white one and that was the one for tonight. So now I had the dress of course this would mean different shoes which was okay. I had my look and was all dressed, next the hair and lastly the nails. I was all ready, a quick look outside, yes I still do this even though some of my neighbors know. I got in my car and was leaving my house by 6:10, 55 minutes from start to Susan. now I really thought it was later as it doesn’t take long to get there so I had plenty of time. I got to Who Song & Larry’s at 6:20 and parked and was just debating about going inside when I got a phone call from my brother so I sat in the car while I talked to him. Good thing he couldn’t see through the phone, we ended up talking for almost 30 minutes so by the time I was done it was getting close to 7. I texted Cassandra to let her know I was there and got out of my car, turns out Joan was there and walking by my car, what great timing. Cassandra texted me back she had just parked too and was walking up and Cristine was getting out of her car. We really couldn’t have timed it better.

We all walked in together and told the lady there would be 5 of us as Julie was on her way, the other 4 that had planned on being here had to cancel. Now they weren’t real busy so far. We sat and talked for a bit as we waited for Julie who got her just a few minutes after 7. Our Waiter came of and he was awesome, he really seemed to enjoy us being there. Another waitress came by also and asked us how are evening was going and if we had any big plans for tonight and we just told her we were here for a nice dinner. She even talked to us for a while and everyone here always referred to us as ladies. Even a third waitress came by to see if we needed anything, I think we were the hit of the evening here and everyone was so nice to us.

We ordered dinner and had a great time. Our waiter came by all the time to see how we were doing and even sat down a couple time by our table and talked to us briefly. We had a great time and it flew by as it always does. A group from another table was leaving and one of the ladies came over and told us she just had to tell us how beautiful we all looked tonight which I never get tired of hearing.

After dinner we sat there and talked and before we knew it we were the last ones there. Our waiter came by and told us to come back and see him again which was nice. it was 9:45 when we finally left. The waitresses that had also came by our table also told us good night and to come back again so I guess we made a good impression. I am sure we will be back here again. we are also coming up with some other places we can go which will. be nice.

WE all said our goodbyes and went our separate ways for now. I think next week we will do Chinese so I hope I can make that night too. What great friends I have and what a wonderful evening.

Thanks for reading.

Dinner out with friends

Well tonight Susan went out for dinner with some friends. A while back I got together with Peggy for dinner and we had a great time and talked about doing it again so tonight was the night. We were both able to make it tonight and even Cassandra was able to make it so we decided to have dinner at Who Song & Larry’s, they have good food and the two times I have been there as Susan I was treated awesome. It is also pretty close to where I live so easy for me to get there, little farther for Peggy & Cassandra. We were going to meet there at 6:30 so I left my house a little after 6 and was there 15 minutes later. We had perfect timing as I was just getting ready to get out of my car when Cassandra and Peggy arrived.

They also brought Kathy which was a wonderful surprise as it has been quite a while since I have seen her as she does not get out much, she is Mandie’s wife. Mandie had to work tonight so she joined us. Who Song and Larry’s was a little busy as tonight was Taco Tuesday, .99 cent tacos and happy hour goes till 10. We got a table right in the main room next to the taco bar were you go and they make your taco fresh to order and then you put what you want on it.

They have wonderful chips and salsa to snack on which I could almost make a meal just on that. We sat around and talked for a while before we ate which was nice, just 4 ladies enjoying a little conversation. The staff was awesome as every time they came to check on us they always referred to us as ladies. We got a couple looks but they were brief and then they went back to whatever they were doing and paid us no more attention.

We talked about everything and even Diva Las Vegas this next year. I am definitely planning on going again. Cassandra is also planning on going and Peggy should have some vacation time so she also wants to go. We are trying to talk Kathy into going and bringing Mandie. There are also several other girls in the group who have said they want to go so it could be we might have 6 to 8 of us going next year. That would be such a blast.

It was a really enjoyable evening and our waitress was awesome and would stop and chat with us a little, even the girl making the tacos came over a few times and talked with us. It started when we asked what the cheese was they had. It was a Mexican cheese and that led to Cassandra and Kathy trying to speak Spanish to her which was interesting in itself. My Spanish is very small, a few numbers and a couple words at best. Cassandra even asked about bring some of the group and our waitress said it would be fine just call ahead and they would make sure there was a big table for us. That would be so fun if we could get a Tuesday night dinner group to go there once or twice a month. Good food, great price on Tuesday and awesome staff working there.

Well the time flew by; I think we left a little after 8:30. It did not seem like we had been there 2 hours. It was a fun night, and I hope we can do this again soon. Well it was time to pay our bills; our waitress brought us all separate checks so I got to use my Susan credit card. I left a good tip for the awesome service and we all through some money in the tip jar for the girl cooking the tacos as she also was so nice.

As we left there was a guy outside looking for someone with jumper cables and he asked us, but neither of us had cables. Then he asked what the occasion was and we all just smiled and said it was taco Tuesday. He smiled and said that worked for him and wished us a good night. We said our goodbyes and off we went. It was an awesome night and so glad that Cassandra, Peggy and Kathy could join me for dinner, you girls rock.

Well I plan on going to Starbucks Thursday night and then it will be at least a week before I get out again. This is a busy month but I have my Halloween costume taken care of so I am good.

Thanks for stopping by and reading.

Nice dinner out with friend

Well it turns out this week Susan will be out 3 days in a row and no trip to Starbuck’s. I really like my quiet time at Starbuck’s but it is nice to do something new or different sometimes. A while back Peggy joined me at Starbuck’s and we spent the evening just talking and one of the things we talked about was other things we could do, maybe smaller groups sometime. I had mentioned it would be nice to go out to dinner or maybe catch a movie or something like that, more of your everyday type things. Any way Peggy and I decided we should try to get together for dinner one evening so tonight was the night.

We decided on Who Song & Larry’s in Vancouver at 6:30 which was very convenient for me but Peggy had to come through all the rush hour traffic from Portland. I took her a about an hour to get there where for me it was 15 minutes so I guess I got the better end of this dinner. Well I got there and the parking lot was completely full oh there were a couple spaces where people had pulled in on the line and took 2 spots so after circling the parking lot I saw Peggy standing out front. Seems she got lucky and found a spot. Anyway I stopped to tell her I was gone up the street to park so she got in and road with me around to the over flow parking lot. Now it was a nice evening so the walk back was nice.

Now as busy as the parking lot was inside was pretty empty seems everyone was out on their deck having dinner so we had no trouble getting a table. Now about a year and a half ago about 15 of our group came here for dinner before Christmas so Susan has been here before and we were treated well that night and nothing had changed. Our waiter was great. Always referred to us as Ladies of course Peggy is a GG but it was nice that he never gave me a funny look or treated me any different than anyone else. The food was great and it was a really fun evening.

It was nice to just sit and talk for a couple hours over dinner. I think I will try to do this more often. Friday night I will be out with the group at the P-Club so that will make 3 nights in a row. What a fun week.
