For those who know me on a non-virtual level (I was going to say a personal level… but yeah anyone that reads this blog knows me quiiiite personally *shrugs*) I have been going on and on about the launch of my newest project, the Lesbians of Color Dinner Series. The last Saturday of the month, dynamic lesbians of color from all over South Florida get together to dish, eat, and network. I would include sip but if it is something I am a part of, that should be pretty obvious.
So Saturday was our first dine. It was AMAZING! No, I’m not just saying that because I was the host. The theme of my dinner was a Wine and Tapas Soiree (with a little/lot of Sangria) too. We ended up with 16 [insert another word for amazing] women, 20 bottles of wine, 3 gallons of sangria and only 2 broken glasses. We got little snapshots into each other’s lives and wow what lives we live. Let’s just say I didn’t think I would be hearing about someone sewing a man’s fingers back on after an accident, or that I would be preparing to ride (read: watch others ride) in a 100ish mile bike ride supporting the less fortunate. We were regaled with singing, played an epic game of Celebrity and did a LOT of late night dancing in the dark. I would go on and on, but I guess pictures will have to say the remaining thousand words.
Special shout out of course to KP for being the Robin to my Batman (though we aren’t in ANY pictures together.. IJS)
