Beautiful night beautiful ladies

I have never been to a strip club my entire life and I live in a state with the largest concentration of them.  I live in Portland and we are often referred to as Pornland.  I have, however, had the absolute pleasure of seeing two burlesque shows this year featuring the Rose City Shimmy  dancing to a live performance by the The Stolen Sweets.  These women are beautiful and have really mastered the "art of seduction".  Whenever I watch them dance I feel even happier to call myself a WOMAN!  I didn't take any pictures because I was a lil embarrassed and happier to just watch.  Plus I found some really killer ones of the ladies.




Here is a killer performance of The Stolen Sweets at the famous Preservation Hall in New Orleans.  They are also really fun to watch perform.
Probably my favorite part of the whole show was this couple Russ and Sugar that swing dance.  They are amazing dancers and quite funny.
Before the show my friend Cathy and I had a yummy dinner at a place called Nostrana.  We shared a pizza covered in dungeness crab, mascarpone, paprika and a ton of herbs!  It was mouth watering good, paired with a few cosmos...YUM!  Life has so much to offer doesn't it!!!!  I hope you all had a lovely weekend!

Pornland? Ha! I've never been to a strip club either but funnily enough I've often been mistaken for a stripper. I swear I don't go shopping in my pants and a massive peacock fan...yet!
Your night sounds fab, if the pizza, great mates and those clips are anything to go by. I'm coming with you next time.
Love you loads! xxx

I've never been to a strip club either, and whilst it wouldn't be high on the list of things I'd like to do, I'd definitely be up for it. Male strippers do absolutely NOTHING for me, so given a choice, it'd be pretty ladies all the way!
Your meal and the cocktails sound just perfect. You're getting out and about a lot, good girl!

I'm in the never been to a strip club gang too!
I think burlesque is a bit different though, the girls are always so gorgeous and elegant. Male strippers? Yuk! If I want a giant salami waving in my face, I'll pop to the deli, thanks!
Love the song and the dancing. Glad you had a great night out, Krista! You are right, life is always offering us something to enjoy! xxxxx

Burlesque shows are the best! I used to go to them all the time (back before I moved to the countryside and became too lazy to make the effort to drive into town). They also happen to just be a really good excuse to get over the top fancied up! Ha ha I had know idea that Portland was the porn capital... you learn something new everyday!

I love burlesque shows I love going to them. I remember going to a strip club for a friends 18th many years ago. It was male strippers for that particular show...not sexy at all... and one of the best drag acts ever hosted the evening.

Oh how I love a good burlesque show. Usually they have a comedy feel to them - did this one??

I've never heard of the term Pornland, but now it's sticking. It actually sounds better than boring old Portland.
