Tracey Wiley and I had a blast hosting our Essence Fest Kickoff & Girls Night Out at CRU Bubbles and Raw Bar. We truly believe when women come together amazing things can happen!
As women, we juggle so many things and wear so many hats. It's nice to get out and use our energy to network with other women. Build alliances, meet new friends or just hang out with the Girl Gang! I, somehow, manage to knockout all three in one night. A few cheers and toasts are always nice, right? The venue and patio were perfect for a hot summer day. The menu options and signature cocktails were also BOMB! The Socialite and the Influencer cocktails were perfect for a Girls Night Out! One cocktail was made with Rum and lemonade and the other with ginger, orange and mint. Did y'all like those signature cocktails? If you haven't been to CRU yet, make sure you head there soon - for a date night, girls night, Cigar Night or Drag Brunch. I love the Happy Hour at CRU. It is Monday through Friday from 4pm - 7pm .The schedule is listed on the website http://www.crunola.com/.
Thank you to all of the ladies who attended and to the vendors for coming out. The vendors did an amazing job representing their brands.
