...and why do we think we can do them on a Tuesday night?

Miss Vero will answer that in a minute y'all, just give us one second here, while we put Bobby Guttridge's phone number in our speed dial.....

Aw right, as we were sayin'...Out and about on a Tuesday night and well, y'all never saw so many dang local celebrities in one place. We're talkin' about What-A-Tavern and good ole Charlie Wilson was having his regular Tuesday night Karaoke party. On Stage, Charlie and Rhett Palmer singing "I dunno where I'ma gonna go when the volcano blows!". It was scary. Must be something in the water over at WAXE 1370AM.

Charlie recently updated his blog to show that he is exercising his freedom of speech and printin' his opinion, rather than appear as some sort of journalist. We don't know if y'all have been listening to Rhett Palmer's show on Mondays, but the tension between Charlie and big ole Gary Wheeler is getting stick marsh thick. Commissioner Wheeler seems to be getting pretty agitated by Charlie, which means that Charlie must be onto something.

Rhett, on the other hand, is crazier than ever. Mid life crisis? Recent breakup? Hmmm...

Lisa and Leo Desmond have the new afternoon show from 5 to 6 pm and have asked Miss Vero to be a guest. We are still considering this invitation and perhaps if y'all listen in Thursday afternoon, we will have made up our mind by then. Why are we cautious? Well, Mr. Desmond, an attorney, spent the last several days sitting next to a certain Bob Evans fan during Mr. Joe Baird's trial. Y'all know by now that Miss Vero does not like to share the fabulocity with just anyone.

And speakin' of fabulocity - and this is where those Jello shots came in, we left those fools singin' their Karaoke to get on over to Cosmic Charlies just in time for the 11 o'clock Drag show! Miss Kelli Randell was performing and if y'all have never seen her, go 'head kick yourself. She is the hottest Drag Queen in the sunshine state!

We ran into one of our new best friends Mr. Curt from Culinary Capers, where we had dinner not too long ago. Now if y'all were payin' attention, we had mentioned that we were looking forward to another dinner there soon and guess what? Not only are we going to have a fabulous dinner but we will also be treated to a special show, with none other than Miss Kelli Randell!! We are just so excited. If y'all are interested, call Culinary Capers right away for all the details 772-562-9191. We believe it will be September 19th, a Saturday night.

Let's see what else, oh yes...if y'all are wondering why we don't have any pictures this week, it's because we dropped our camera in excitement (or drunkenness, we really don't recall) while we were backstage at the B-52's concert last week in Fort Pierce! There is however, a picture of Miss Vero talking to Miss Kate Pierson at the aftershow party and y'all can see it on our Facebook page. So become our fan and give it a look. There, shameless self promotion accomplished.

And while we are on the subject of shameless self promotion (it's not necessarily a bad thing), there's a video that we want y'all to see - what a hoot! One of our fans from the Vero Chickys sent us a clip that she made for the Conan O'Brian show. Want to see it? It's on our Facebook page. Go 'head over there y'all. There, at least we can offer something other than the mindless and endless comments concerning Mr. Joe Baird's legal quagmire.

Your welcome.

It was Miss Vero Of course! But y'all knew that right? See what happens when we jump to conclusions? Let that be a lesson to y'all. So yes, indeed we did run into Mr. Baird Friday night, but let's start at the beginning...

Gorgeous art in every gallery and fabulous gifts in the stores, but show us a smilin' monkey and we'll take a picture! What can we say, we're a sucker for a smilin' monkey (boy, skippy, that sure does explain an awful lot). Anyhoo, like our fabulous society friend, Miss Mary Schenkel, we also attended the Dine & Design Stroll around Downtown on Friday night. But yet, somehow, our experience was a little different...

While Miss Mary did take quite a few photos -did y'all read her article in "Downtown Dine & Design"? Go ahead, we'll wait.

She didn't get one of Miss Corey at the Decorative Arts festivities. Miss Corey sure did seem to be havin' a good time visitin' with folks on this side of the tracks. Y'all know Miss Corey right? She has that little ole pharmacy on the beach? Only been here about fifty years or so...

From the looks of all the crowds at each business, a hot August night turned into a hit party. Deb Daly at Decorative Arts had music, food and drinks and was doin' some fund raising for ELC to boot.

And if Undertow is the "Epicenter of Cool" then Cafe Mojo has quickly become the "Tsunami of Soul"! Another fabulous Friday night and a great jazz sound in a packed house!

Y'all never know who's going to get up at open mic night. Miss Nancy Richards, former Indian River County Democratic President was belting out "Summertime" and then took a few requests that she hadn't prepared for. No, she's not giving a speech, just brushin' up on the lyrics!

We did have to turn around and look when Mr. Joe Baird entered! So what happened next? Well, kids, one thing about Miss Vero, we are not shy. We walked right up to him and started a conversation and guess what? He was just about as nice as could be and as sweet as pie! He was just out havin' a good time with friends, which is no crime and we say - good for him not hiding out! Mr. Baird was also a perfect gentleman to Miss Vero. Then again, we didn't run after him pitchin' sour hard candy or nothin' like that, if y'all know what we mean...

Needless to say we did make it over to Undertow, "Epicenter of Cool" and home of all the YVR's- that's Young Vero Royalty y'all! Who was there this week? The adorable Miss Kaley Roberson and Mr. Robby Stone.

Party kids, Samatha of SpectorSoft and Matt of Flight Safety in Miss Klein's beyond groovey retro ride!

Oh to be young and fabulous! (Instead of Just fabulous!)

Hey guess what? Miss Vero has a facebook page and we want y'all to stay off it! We mean it, go away! Don't post anything funny or distasteful! Don't come with a sense of humor or an new idea. And by all means, if y'all make up some quirky internet name and don't have current ID, you're banned! But most important y'all must worship us and agree with everthing we say. Hey! Just kidding that's not OUR facebook page, we would never beg y'all to do anything like that...

Well hunnies we are back! And just in time for the humidity festival y'all are havin'! Seriously, could it get any hotter? It is just miserable and we are swelterin' somethin' fierce. As we wandered around Corey's drugstore, trying to remember what in the heck we came for, we noticed the terrazzo floor under our feet and remembered our ole Grandmammies house with her terrazzo floors, jalousie windows and NO DANG AIR CONDITIONING! How did we ever manage kids? Somehow growin up in Florida was cooler then, don't ask us how.

We dragged ourselves out this past weekend to catch up on what y'all have been up to and we started out at Downtown Friday. Sure it was fun, but the heat and lack of martinis made us move toward another Downtown establishment with AC that has us so spoiled. We did manage to say hello to Commissioner and Mrs. Peter O'Bryan. As y'all know by now, Miss Vero just loves to see our elected officials, mingling with the constituents and out and about in town. We don't give a flying rat what y'all's net worth is, just get to know the folks y'all represent. In fact, why doesn't the city council set up a booth for everyone to visit with on these occasions? I'm sure a lot of folks would be happy to give a nice "howdy and here's how we think you're doin" to the politicians they elected.

Commissioner and Mrs. Peter O'Bryan

It was just too hot, so we ambled over to Cafe Mojo, where an even hotter jazz improv was happening at the open mic night. There's Billy Collins on the right, pretending to jump in and perform. He's quite a character. Billy and Caroline have really put together impressive crowds on Friday nights. They've created the perfect coffee house scene.

Of course the crowd at Undertow was just as hot and rockin and the beauty of that little downtown area is that y'all can buy art, have dinner, drinks and music, just by walkin' around the block!

Did we mention it was hot? This could be the reason - Jesse and Dolf Kahle were hanging out. Honestly, could those boys be any cuter? We don't what their Mama put in their milk, but it sure did work! Miss Vero needs to get these two on a calendar, perhaps we can convince Vero Polo to let us head the committee for fund raising next year and choose some calendar photos, there's an assignment we wouldn't mind at all!

Y'all would think that by midnight it would of cooled down just a bit, but no hunnies, it got hotter still! The kids started dancin' on the bar and the drinks were flowin', just a typical Friday night at the "Epicenter of Cool" - Undertow!

Now Saturday night we decided to check out the wine tasting and dinner party at Culinary Capers. That's right, something a little different. Miss Vero and gal pals found a little summer special that we'd wished we'd known about sooner. Along with Great Spirits, Culinary Capers puts on a little monthly special that is both affordable and delicious. For $32 each we had a four course meal paired with wines that were available for purchase - and they even had a case discount! Y'all know we loved that. The entrees were lamb chops and onion crusted grouper and we must say, our dinner was fabulous. We always love it when we are surprised by something in Vero that we should have known about. We checked out their website and it looks like they'll be having an Oktoberfest, but nothing scheduled for September. Perhaps with a few requests, we might persuade Curt, and his team at Culinary Capers, to let us come back.
Here's the links:

Now as much fun as we had at dinner, when we all piled into our luxury limo, we gasped when we realized it was only 9:45 and we had no plan for what was next. What was happening? What was still open? And most importantly, who would appreciate the fabulous ensembles we had painstakingly put together for our evening out? As always the answer is...DRAG QUEENS!

Yes, we would find Drag Queens and kids we are certain that by now y'all know (thanks to little ole Miss Vero) that this town is full of 'em! Our good pal, Fran Love was happy to see us walk into the Clubhouse Bar and Grill, just in time for the regular Saturday night Drag Show!

Isn't it amazing? the same mirrored disco ball above the taxpayers luncheon crowd, where Congressman Bill Posey spoke, does it's disco duty on Drag night! Texas holdem, sports bar, trivia, political luncheons and Drag Queens, all under one roof! Yee Haaa! All we can say is - THANKS FRAN!

Miss Alexi Leigh gives a girl a piece of her mind.

Y'all can check out all the goings on at the Clubhouse on their myspace page:

Don't forget on Tuesday night there's another show over at Cosmic Charlie's. Y'all know that "tavern" that 's being affected by the road construction, just south of McKee, in the plaza where y'all get a driver's license? Yeah, that place. Seems we read a little blurb somewhere about that. Funny, no mention of the "Cosmic Buns" party on Tuesday and certainly no mention of Kelli Randall, one of the most fabulous Drag Queens to ever appear in Vero. Hmmm. Now that's odd, that someone would go to all the trouble of writing something and not mentioning that, don't y'all think?

Speaking of directing traffic to a social networking site, a certain someone is sure obsessed about getting "fans" and countin' comments. Sure hope that certain someone didn't choose a tragic topic just to collect the coveted comment numbers. tsk, tsk.

Let's just say that Miss Vero enjoys social networking in a different way. If y'all want to be our "fan" go right ahead, we sure do love that, but we 'd prefer that y'all just let us know where the party is . Do y'all know about some fun that we're missing? "Fan" us, "friend" us, email us, just make sure we get the invite!

Well it sure is good to be back and doing what we do best, partyin' and poking at folks that need it. Lookin forward to hearin' from y'all soon, till then...



Need another reason to celebrate? Miss Vero's back in town! Check out our latest post at!
