Holidays, Cheer, Food and Laughs!
December always brings lots of fun events! So many fun things to go and do and I just love them all! One of my most favorites is the Salvation Army Bell ringing! I’ve been doing this community service for years with my Cary-Kildaire Rotary Club. I look forward to it each year for many reasons. First of all, it brings back great childhood memories for me; getting some coins from my dad to put in the kettle, I will always remember that! But it also gives me a chance to ring for 2 hours with a fellow Rotarian from my club and it’s a chance to talk and get to know them better. This year I had the opportunity to ring with Helen Collier and Shelton Ennis. My good friend from the Cary Chamber, Meg Moraties, also wanted to ring some with us, so she joined us one afternoon. We had a lot of fun and even made a cute video! Check it out below!
We took some fellow BNI networking friends with us to Goodnights Comedy Club in downtown Raleigh on Friday night. One of my good friends had passed along a group pass for us to use, so that was our ticket to FUN! We met for dinner at the Old Bar downstairs and had a great time catching up on and telling stories. The food was delicious and we shared several appetizers before our meals came.
I had a chance to see Shannon Reeder, owner of Goodnights, before dinner. We met a few months ago at the Triangle Ladies Power Lunch, through a mutual friend, Lynn Shaw. We attended the 10:15pm comedy show that featured comedian Melissa Villasenor. She was really funny and after the show I had a picture taken with her and friend Heidi Harris.
Blake and I rounded out the weekend by attending the AsianFocus Holiday Cheers Party at Yoho Asian Bistro in Cary. Blake and I’ve been to YoHo several times before and their food is always good. This time I had the pad thai and Blake had the steak and shrimp hibachi meal. We enjoyed getting to meet new friends in this group and look forward to going to more of their events in 2013. Many thanks for friends Grace Wang and Lily Chan for extending the invitation for us to attend.
