So my girlfriend and I are entrepreneurs at heart. We are always looking for new opportunities. We have very long (too long) lunches discussing business and giggling over real life (she is married, a mom of two and an only child — just like me!!)
So when she asked me if I wanted to go to a networking event I said why not?! After going to BlogHer meeting new people will never be a problem for me again!
As we entered we were given a piece of paper with either a place or a neighborhood, the icebreaker was to find our match.
They gave us (and I say us lightly cuz y’all know I don’t drink) a drink and we headed downstairs to what was a wine cellar (think: basketball wives-where ev throws the wine bottle)
I found my match pretty quickly and we got the talking. Problem was, so did everyone else…
Before you knew it we were screammmming over each other, there were around 50 ladies in a small room and all of our voices bouncing off the walls. It was a bit impossible to have a normal conversation.
The setting however, was perfect. A very swanky sd26had all the makings of a very good high star NYC restaurant.
We even got a full tour of the kitchen:
I met some very lovely ladies in the 2 hour time span. It helped to have my friend Kia there because we often were a comedy show laughing and making jokes with everyone.
Would I do it again? Sure! I love events like this, and I met a lot of awesome peeps!
