Kitten goes country

Saturday night was interesting. I joined my friend Dianna at a little mixer where I ran into a mutual friend of myself and i_feel_sick. Then we were off to a party of some of Diana's friends but it wasn't quite my scene. Finally we ended the night at a place in Everett called McCabe's. McCabe's is country western dance bar downstairs and a hip hop dance club upstairs. I only agreed to go because I heard McCabe's has a pole, so of course I had to check it out!

Oddly enough, both the country floor and the hip hop floor had a pole. But both poles were built right onto the edge of a little stage. So it was impossible to even walk around the pole. I wish some one at McCabe's had consulted a professional before installing those poles. They are completely useless when up against a ledge like that. I did manage to go upside down a couple times on one, which caused the crowd on the dance floor to erupt with cheers. But I couldn't do much else on the pole because it was so poorly positioned.

I have to admit I did enjoy watching the country dancing. Everyone walks in pairs around in a circle on the floor, twirling their partners to the music as they go. They offer lessons if you arrive early enough and I think I'd like to try it some time.
