I am a little obsessed with meetup.com. I've joined sewing groups, girl's night out groups, neighborhood groups, book club groups, fitness groups, and mom groups. I haven't been to a lot of actual meetups. This was my first time attending a non-baby one.
The meetup took place at a wonderful Mexican/Cuban restaurant in Ravenswood - Cafe 28. I only had one drink -- a margarita that was not as good as mine. I firmly believe that I make the best margaritas ever! I ate a ton. The dinner was at 8:30. I didn't get to eat until much later. I was starving. I ordered one of my favorite appetizers - Bacon Wrapped Dates. These were also stuffed with chorizo. Yum-O! I ordered scallops as my entree. Good but not OMyGod good. I did order another drink but it never came. Probably due to the size of the group or the universe "cutting me off".
I have never seen so many fabulous women of color (at least 30) in one space. Everyone was super SHARP! Nice conversation about backgrounds, the city, and Basketball Wives. I have got to start watching, I see a theme. I'm looking forward to spending more time with this group. I've already RSVP'd for 2 upcoming meetups and suggested an event.
If you're local, check them out here. You have to be a member to see events though.
|What I Wore|
Me made with a D&G designer pattern. My favorite leopard print fabric. It's super stretchy and flattering.
I suck at taking camera self portraits.
Anyone else use meetup.com?
