    Ahahaha! So you really DID smell like strippers today! Gotta love the smell of lip gloss and baby powder in the mornings, huh?

      @Jana A, I bathed in hand sanitizer, so I think I managed to get the smell off me. :)

    Fascinating. I’ve never been to a strip club and you answered a lot of the questions I had.

    It is wrong that the most interesting thing to me was that you ended up with a really good steak?!?

      @Maura, that was actually the most interesting thing to me too. If you have any other questions, shoot!

    I’ve been to several clubs in my time. Some are really bad, the veritable stereotype of a club, and then there are those that are pretty classy. Glad you went to a relatively classy one, with an apparently good steak.

      @Blondefabulous, I can only imagine what a non-classy one would be like. /shudder

    OK, now that you’ve finally been to a strip club with some mild oddities, the next obvious step is to go to the Clermont Lounge* in Atlanta for the real freakshow ride.

    Hehehehe.

    *Or as I like to call it “The Island of Misfit Strippers”.

      @B.E. Earl, This would be funny only for the entertainment value of the discomfort we’d have there.

      @B.E. Earl,

      Ha! The Hubs and I almost went there for date night last month. Tragically awesome.

      I dont think Adam is ready for all that.

        @Annabelle, Tragically awesome is right!

        If Adam isn’t ready for that, then I don’t wanna know Adam from Adam. What?

      @B.E. Earl, Gotta hit the Clermont Lounge… If nothing else, to see Blondie! I long to be able to crush a PBR can between my boobs. Alas, I don’t think I ever will be able to. For shits and giggles, read the yelp reviews! They’re great!!

        @Jana A, Blondie is the tits!

        I wrote a blog post about the Clermont and her several years ago. In the comments, you will notice Adam mentioning his distaste for strippers and strip clubs. Funny.

        @B.E. Earl, Love it! I love that Blondie gave you money to give to the girl. That’s just awesome!

    So when they say “the spread at the strip club” is excellent, they may REALLY be talking about the buffet.

      @hello haha narf, Becky, c’mon. You know me – can you really see me doing that last part? The entire post is true up to the point of me giving anyone money, and certainly not with my teeth.

    One strip club I went to, the women’s bathroom doubled as the strippers dressing room. They had to stand guards outside the door to keep men from going in. At another, the bathrooms were co-ed which I did NOT like. No strippers in that one though. Oh, one time, while getting a lap dance, my stripper was so nice. She told me to watch my purse because “the bitches here STEAL.”

    Strip clubs are so bad ass.

    I’ve never had a steak, or even eaten for that matter at a strip club.

      @Miss, come to Orlando and we’ll go get a good steak.

    We have a Rachel’s down here and, I must admit, the food was pretty good. The entertainment left a bit to be desired. There’s another place down here that, in the past, has had better looking dancers.

    So now you’ve done it and you never have to again. I’ve always had fun in strip clubs, but the last time I went was probably the last time I’ll ever go because it seems so sad to me suddenly.

    • Avitable
      Monday, November 7, 2011

      @Megan, yeah – I’ve done it, and now I don’t really feel the urge to do it again, but I also wouldn’t say no if people were going, which I would have done in the past.

    I can’t stop looking at the first dead-behind-the-eyes denizen of the night picture you posted. Her legs look like sausages stuffed into those stockings. They’re probably screaming for mercy. So thanks for that. I’ll be having nightmares tonight.

      @Trina @ Walking With Scissors, she had talent on the pole, though, I’ll give you that.

    This makes me glad I’ve only seen strippers with their clothes on.

    The question is will you ever go again? For the steak of course.

    • Avitable
      Monday, November 7, 2011

      @Stacey, I’d go again if friends were going, but I’m not going to make it a special trip.

    I’ll bet those waitresses had an awesome time watching you!
    I took my (young) cousin out for her bachelorette party last month. We only have one “straight” (ha ha) club that has male dancers – and even then it’s only on Friday & Saturday nights. So, five or so tables of women working and one table of men (all the way in the back, if you please) makes for a hilarious event! Nothing like watching the virgin(s) try to figure out where to look so that they don’t appear pervy or totally out of their element. Like anyone *should* look comfortable in there! XD

      @Mari, I was comfortable once I concentrated on my food. :)

    I randomly came across your blog from a blog comment on a friend’s blog and I have spent the last hour reading different posts and laughed hysterically! One of the posts I came across was about your lap-band procedure and you had lost 100lbs….but then I saw that was in 2009. I’m curious to know the rest of the story….did you reach your goal?

    • Avitable
      Monday, November 7, 2011

      @Michelle, thanks for the comment and the visit. I have not yet reached the ultimate goal, but I’ve gotten to a point that I’m much happier with myself. Any plateauing that I’ve done is entirely my fault, and I know that with a little motivation, I’ll be back on track easily.

      • Michelle

        @Avitable, I’m happy to hear that you’re much happier with yourself! Have you found that the more disciplined you are with your nutrition and exercise, the better disciplined you are in other areas of your life?

    Man you’re brave! Can’t say as I’ve ever ordered a meal in a strip club. Can’t say that I ever would, but then again my husband used to be a cook in a club so…eeeew.

    • Avitable
      Monday, November 7, 2011

      @Neeroc, as long as they weren’t shaking their ass over it, I was okay with eating it.

    25 cent drinks and a great steak dinner… and the viewing of talented women? Sounds like your first visit was a winner.
