We started day three with lunch at the Cheesescake Factory inside Macy’s on Union square with the rest of Northern California. They are very crossdresser friendly and food is good, quantities are large, and everybody knows it hence the crowd.
After lunch we split up to do some strategic shopping but other than some MAC foundation we struck out. That means we either have everything or they just did not have the merchandise appealing to us. Most likely it is between seasons so they are letting the inventory shrink.
Ashley did go to Lens Crafter’s on Market st. a very crossdresser friendly store and got some new lenses for her super lady like glasses. The place is great and they treat you with respect and dignity not to mention they know how to pick great glasses for crossdressers.
We headed down to Nordstroms again crossdresser friendly but, did not have any luck there either, not even shoes! Oh well, more money for dinner!
At 4ish we headed back to our hotel for a glass of wine before going upstairs to create the magic.
Dinner was at 7:30Pm so we met at the downstairs bar for my nightly warm up Cosmo.
Far and away one of my favorite places to eat in San Francisco for dinner. Farallon has a menu of primarily seafood that changes both seasonally and nightly.
Again they are crossdresser friendly and know us here. The general manager greeted us warmly when we arrived before taking us to an amazing table.
The East Coast scallop’s were huge and cooked to perfection and we both ordered them.

Yours truly overdressed sitting at the bar after our amazing dinner.
San Francisco is one of my favorite crossdressing destinations and I was able to squeeze a trip in this month. Summer always creates problems with my dressing schedule so this was a last minute deal. My BFF Ashley flew up to meet me for the weekend but I was on my own for Thursday night.
Thursday afternoon my early fight got me to the hotel around 2:00PM. My luggage shipped ahead so it was waiting. After a quick lunch it was back to my room to start the magic. Plenty of of time for my 7:30 dinner reservation at Jardiniere in downtown San Francisco.
I finished the process early enough to visit the European Bar overdressed as usual downstairs to get them warmed up for my Cosmo.
Just after 7:00PM I broke out my phone and ordered my UBER Coach to Jardiniere for dinner.
I have been going to Jardiniere crossdressed for a long time alone and with others and it is one of my favorites.
They know me there so it is no problem dining alone in my cozy booth upstairs. I started with the Warm Bread Salad then followed with the chicken padron, meyer lemon, eggplant, black garlic.
Jardiniere caters mostly to the San Francisco theater crowd so by 7:30 they are off to the performance and the restaurant is not so busy. The slower pace gives me time to interact with the servers and have an unhurried meal.
I skipped desert preferring to head back to my hotel for my night, night Cosmo. The alarm went off at 5:00AM that morning so I wanted to make it an early night getting some rest for the shopping extravaganza Friday.
Day’s two and three will follow this post with more San Francisco fun dining and shopping adventures.

Overdressed is a term heard often when people contemplate going somewhere and have concerns about how others will be dressed. Crossdresser’s are no exception and you here it all the time especially when people are going to Trans or Crossdresser events.
Activities like shopping and where you will be going typically dictates what you will be wearing. Shopping at the mall in Las Vegas in hot temperatures sees thongs, shorts, tank tops or short sleeve blouses. Unfortunately some “T” people wear the same thing to dinner like so many non “T” people do.
I very seldom go out shopping when I travel largely because most of my shopping is done on the internet. I also hate daylight preferring night time lighting which is much softer. Besides I can buy anything I want in DUKE mode and nobody cares.
Therefore I live for the night and overdress to my hearts content. I looked like a parade float when I went to Diva Las Vegas this year but did not care. I have been dressing up not down since I was a little boy and have no plans to stop now. Being dressed to the hilt is what I enjoy so that’s the way its gonna be. I accept the label of Glamour Pussproudly!
Last weekend I went out in Long Beach Friday, Saturday, Monday and Tuesday nights and overdressed every single night.
Friday night I met friends at a very hip mainstream restaurant in downtown Long Beach.
Saturday night was our CHIC club meeting night so I joined 14 other members at a different main stream favorite.
Monday & Tuesday nights I went solo at favorite pubs on Naples Island near Long Beach.
I did not fool anyone not passable and do not care nor did anyone else. My Uber driver greeted me opened the car door and took my hand when I exited the car. Present like a lady, act like a lady, and be treated as a lady.
