Blogger Meet-Up

It is not often when I run into a blogger from my neck of the woods.

So, imagine my surprise when I discovered my friend Tara, from Musings of a Notorious Daydreamer, lives only 45 minutes away from me!

We had been blog friends for a while before we made the connection.

Of course when we put two and two together, the next logical step was to meet in person.

So, over the weekend, we met up for drinks and art.



I was delighted to discover Tara is just as sweet and intelligent in person, as she is through her writing. We got along famously right from the start!

After drinks and dinner, we went to a couple art galleries.



We also came across some really creepy performance art.





These strange people were smashing bread against the window and then serving it to patrons. I was handed one, and politely declined to eat it. I was horrified to see that others around me were nibbling on their slices. Ew!

After we hit the galleries, Tara and I walked over to meet up with a couple of my friends.







The night kind of took a wild turn from there. We went to a couple more bars and met up with some hot guys. There may or may not have been a male stripper involved. Ha!

Anyway, I was so pleased Tara got along with my besties! I'm super excited because Tara and I are already planning more fun things to do in the future! Yay!

JEALOUS. I totally wish that I lived a bit closer so I could have crashed your party. It sounds like you guys had a great time. Male strippers make everything better.

Aww! You're very sweet for posting this. I had such a wonderful time and I'm so glad we met through our blogs! I'm looking forward to more fun times like this in the future!

Sarah said...

Aww it looks like you had a great time. I did a module on performance art at university and to say it's odd is an understatement!

Hey
I know, right?

This sort of clever work and coverage! Keep up the good works
Thank you!

Awww, that sounds like quite a fun night. Except for the creepy performance art. I have always had contentions with art for art's sake.

Mumbai bloggers are a slightly sedate lot. I used to have a really outgoing bloggers group a couple of years ago, but things have gone a bit quiet of late. Am glad you could find that connect with another blogger.

This sounds like so much fun. It must be nice meeting other people you've formed blogging-relationships with.

...and I don't blame you for passing on the bread...I wouldn't have eaten that either!
