Jus Me and my Pinot Grigio
Okay It's Wednesday night and I have a party to go to but no partner in crime (home girl) to roll out with me??? WTH ! So What do I do? Roll Solo! Hey a girls gotta do, what a girls gotta do. Shout out to Black N LA for hosting the Pre-Thanksgiving Celebration at Xino Restaurant and Lounge in Santa Monica. Good looking people, cool atmosphere, great patio, bangin' DJ and Me! I started the night out with a glass of wine, Pinot Grigio and held a semi-interesting conversation with a 47 year old man who probably shouldn't have been there (stay in your lane!). Gave myself a tour of the Lounge and was impressed. Met another 30-something year old guy who was friendly and kept me company for a minute. The conversation was pretty cool until the "played out question" reared its ugly head. Do you cook? My immediate response was going to be - Do YOU cook? I'm sorry but if that's one of the first 5 questions you ask a woman when you first meet her it already tells me YOU have no skills in the kitchen. Sidebar -Now don't get me wrong I cook but I ain't from the South and you will not be getting collard greens and cornbread or Sunday dinner like the movie Soul Food sorry (meet me at Big Mama's house for all that)! But will you eat, Yes! Do you have a problem with me experimenting in the kitchen trying out new recipes? if so, then I suggest you get your Culinary Arts degree and cook 4 me! Some of us career woman don't cook "every day" however will I attempt to do so Yes. I'm trying not to rip this guy a new one because I've been told that I can be a little "Harsh" in the beginning so I let that question slide and gave him the benefit of the doubt. But surprisingly he stated it was a pleasure to meet me, shook my hand and left the spot before me. Wow okay. But that was a relief for me, no pressure to give my number out. Cool maybe I wasn't what he was looking for and guess what, I'm okay with that. Needless to say I really didn't see any other potential men I would have been interested in. However, I continued on to my 2nd glass of wine- Riesling, and met up with another guy I met at a previous event. I couldn't turn down an invitation to "drop it low" to a few "old school joints" and it was Deuces by 1:30am. I had a good time, All by My Damn Self. Stay tuned....for the next Adventure :) Smooches and Happy Thanksgiving!!!
