I apologize for being late with this post. I'm a blogger not a journalist.. :)
Last Sunday I got to have lunch with some of the Atlanta members of BlackHairMedia.com I believe that most of us tend to post mainly in the Weaves & Extensions Section so everyone's hair was on point. I almost didn't go because my current hair style had seen its last days and I planned on getting my hair done later that week closer to my bday, but I didn't want to miss out.
We decided to meet Sunday at 2pm at California Pizza Kitchen-Atlantic Station.
Every time I go to Atlantic Station I lose my freaking car!!! There's an underground parking garage that spans the whole area.
- Atlantic Station
Atlantic Station is huge! There's tons shops, movies, bars, and restaurants. It's almost like a city with in the city.
The parking is underground and you should really just make a map, especially if you wander Atlantic Station... I parked in Yellow Publix P1 (why I still remember that is beyond me). CPK is in the green part by the yellow arrow.
This didn't even help me. I fail.
Events like this are so hard for me. I'm so shy, and I get so nervous. I'm working on my shyness. Going to events like these actually help. Everyone was so nice and friendly that I really had nothing to worry about.
When I arrived I was thinking to myself "how will I find the group?" As soon as I walked in I saw two groups. One fabulous hair and the other smaller group average looking... I found my "people". We were a diverse group from bone straight to kinky curly! Short tressess and long ones and real long ones. We had to wait a while because CPK doesn't take reservations on Sundays. So we used the time to chat and introduce ourselves.
It was nice to finally put a face to to forum user-names, it's all fun to learn peoples real names and see their faces. Although I think we used real names and our online names interchangeably.
Once we were finally seated we started to chit-chat and look over the menu, by that time we were HUNGRY!! Thank goodness I ate a Lean Pocket in the mid-morning before going because I was hungry by the time we were seated. Our waiter Alejandro (<- I really remember random stuff) took our drink orders.
We went around the table and said what we were "wearing" :) Not clothes but hair.. Lol, I thought this was so cute and appropriate. I probably should of taken some notes.
So here are some pictures from the lunch!!!
Afterwards some of the ladies went shopping!!! I unfortunately couldn't participate. My debit card is mad at me!!! I'm so glad that I went!! I had to go underground and hunt for my car. I had a great time. We said that we were going to try to get together more frequently. I'm looking forward to the next meetup! My hair is on point now and I need a "do-over".
