Hangin' with Blogger Friends

The great thing about this whole social media phenomenon is getting to meet new people who share the same interests as you do. In this case, fashion/beauty blogging. From there, you may even get the opportunity to hang out with these folks outside of the usual fashion and/or blogging events.

During Restaurant Week this past January, I wanted to try out this fancy lil' restaurant called SAX. I rounded up my blogger friends but the only one that could make it out that night was Lelita. Which was cool because we still had a great time! We went on a Monday which just so happened to be Burlesque Monday night. Every Mondays, SAX entertains their customers with burlesque shows. It was pretty cool to be eating a 3 course meal (Act 1, Act 2 and Act 3) while watching a show. Did I mention that these shows are being performed in a 20ft enclosed infinity stage that is right above the bar? Yeah, craziness. At one point, I mentioned to Lelita that all of these performances reminded me of the reality dance competition show, So You Think You Can Dance, routines. She laughed but I truly meant it as a compliment.

Last Wednesday, Brea and I went to the Knicks vs. Wizards game at the Verizon Center. We took advantage of the GroupOn deal that was going on at the time. Also with the ticket we got a John Wall t-shirt. It's currently in the 'Donate' pile in my room. Unfortunately, Melo did not play because he was (and still is) out with a groin injury. (Get well soon, baby!) Even with Melo's absence, I was entertained by Brea, the folks up in the nosebleed section and Jeremy 'Linsanity' Lin. 75% of the crowd were Knicks fans which is sad but then again, the Wizards suck this season so it made sense. Anytime Lin scored and especially after his dunk, the nosebleed section we were sitting at started chanting, "M-V-P! M-V-P!" So funny.

Speaking of nosebleed section, it was the first time for both of us sitting up there for a whole game. Ha. We made the most out of it, though. I will say that when it comes to playing contests, or shooting t-shirts or Chipotle burritos in the stands or getting shown in the Kiss/Dance Cam, the nosebleed section gets screwed. Big time. It's pretty funny but whole time I was like, "Are they really about to ignore us?" Yes. Yes, they are. I guess we get what we paid for. *shrugs*

Just realized that I'm wearing the same dress. Ah well. At least it was styled differently both times. I should probably change the title of this post to reflect that.


Have a great President Day's weekend! And for those outside of the States, have a great weekend, too!
