Well as usual, Miss Vero was out carryin on and cavortin last night - and the night before that. We couldn't have been in two more different places if we'd tried, but hunnies we always do try. Let us explain; Tuesday night we had such a fabulous time at a little ole place called "Cosmic Charlies", which is located in what we like to call, the swale strip mall just south of McKee on US 1 where that creepy pyramid arcade place is near the DMV.
Beer and wine, rednecks and Drag Queens. Ah huh, that's right. Cause y'all know if there's a Drag Queen anywhere within 50 miles of Vero Beach, Miss Vero will find her. But this wasn't just any ole drag Queen, this was the fabulous Miss Kelli Randell, the "First Lady of St. Lucie"!
And there was a cute young Drag Queen and Drag King in the house! (A boy being a girl and a girl being a boy, for those of y'all askin).
And then the owner, a real fun guy named Randy, got dressed up in a Jimi Hendrix costume and the Redneck boys got on stage and took off their shirts and every one had a high-larious time, even the old folks at the bar who were being served by our fabulous sober friend Chris and had no idea that it was Pride night, not to mention the straight laced conservative lawyer, we brought along for fun, who joined in the party!
And this was a typical Tuesday for Miss Vero.
At one point Miss Kelli Randell shouted out that there was a celebrity in the house and it was Miss Vero! Everyone applauded and then one of our more concerned friends asked "Aren't you afraid of being outed in public?"
Miss Vero reassured our concerned friend that none of the County Commissioners or any PJ reporters were in the bar as far as we knew and if they were, they'd have a whole lot more to be worried about than little ole Miss Vero!
Last night was a bit different. We were at the fabulous (second) home right smack on the beach, of one of those international jet setting type couples, where the festivities were a little more subdued and we had a conversation with one of our dearest friends, who told Miss Vero that she personally knew of some one who had lost a hundred million dollars in the Bernie Madoff scandal! A HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS!
Yes, a much different crowd indeed.
Never the less, just as fun. At some point in the evening a few older beachie women were having a conversation, which Miss Vero happened to overhear and they were saying that they heard there was a Drag Queen show somewhere in Vero every week. Honestly we 're not makin' this up. Of course we directed these ladies to our web site for all the info, as we felt it was our responsibility, since they were wonderin' and all.
And we also ran into one of those verobeach32963 writers, who we liked very much and even more so when they promised that they would keep Miss Vero's identity a guarded and valuable secret!
So what did y'all do on your Tuesday and Wednesday nights?
And what are y'all doin tonight, have any plans yet?
Since we got up this morning at the crack of noon and are feelin particularly generous, Miss Vero would like to invite y'all to spend some time with us in a "Live Blogging" session this evening!
So here's how it works; At 10 pm tonight, we will be online to answer any and all questions and talk about whatever y'all like. We will be in the comment section of this post and we will address each and every comment, until we get bored.
As y'all know Miss Vero has a variety of interests besides the obvious (Drag Queens). We are very interested in local politics, cause as the ole sayin goes - "Even if you're not interested in politics, politics is interested in you."
We love Florida history and quirky Florida writers and artists. We are a member of the Museum of Art and a subscriber to Riverside Theater. We are concerned about our natural environment and support the Audubon Society and Pelican Island. We worry about our manatees and dolphins and the health of the Indian River Lagoon.
We are so liberal that if y'all call us a Democrat we are insulted, yet we love conservative Republican men, especially when they let us loosen their tie and make them squirm, which they always let us do.
We are terrible about answering our emails, although we do read them all. But the shear volume just overwhelms our Alkeehaul soaked head! It doesn't mean we don't love y'all hunnies, we do! We do! And Miss Vero sincerely hopes that this might make it up to y'all in some small way.
But most of all - Miss Vero is one who does not take life too serious and wishes that more people would just get over their silly selves.
So what do say, will y'all mix yourselves a libation and join us this evening?
Oh! And maybe if we're lucky LDouglas, Max Newport and Viv Vanvoot will join us!
