First of all, I showed up in jeans and a cropped top with a bare midriff. Seattle clubs are packed with girls showing their abs. It's not a big deal. At McCabe's in Everett, even with the country bar floor packed and the hip hop upstairs floor packed, not one single girl had a bare midriff. Not one! I felt like a freak showing my belly (or at least really out of place) and kept trying to cover it with my coat. Do Everett girls just not show their tummies???
And the other thing I noticed was even more shocking. I saw a woman and her partner step outside to smoke, and she left her purse on the table! Another group of girls went to dance, leaving a purse on their table too. In Seattle clubs, you not only can't leave your purse unattended, but I have friends that have even had their coats stolen when they left them at their table. So what kind of alternate universe is Everett that you can safely leave your purse sitting unattended on your table while you step outside? Or is this just a country bar sort of thing?
