This weekend I had the pleasure of attending the 4th installment of Nubian Hueman's " Black Love Experience " event at the Anacostia Art Centre in Washington D.C. This was my first time attending the event and it was super dope . Nothing but good LOVE vibes filled the room as I got to get up close and personal to vendors and other creatives in the area. Needless to say I did plenty of networking and managed to have a pretty good time in the process.
Here are a few of the vendors I had the pleasure of chopping it up with at the event yesterday .
I am obsessed with crystals and as fate would have it this was the first tableI stumbled upon. If you looking for some incredible stone jewelry with an afrocentric twist please go check her out here

Towards the end of the night I found my self networking less and interacting more . I stumbled across this pretty dope ice breaker activity room that took eager snacker like myself by surprise. In the middle of the room was this table set with this beautiful spread of fruit and cheese. Now you know I like many other people took advantage of this beautiful spread never stoping to ask myself " In this packed event why in the hell is there no line? " Nope. I filled my napkin to the brim! Noticing random questions laying on the table I asked the gentleman behind the table smiling from ear to ear watching me fill my napkin what all of these questions were about and it was at that moment, I knew something was up (lol).
The table was put together but this group called Intellectucool . Little did I know I was walking into an ice breaker experiment. The objective of the activity was to get people to mingle and get to know people they have never met before by simply just jumping into conversation and what better way to welcome someone into your space then to feed them?
You read write that fruit and cheese I piled on my napkin wasn't for me . I was suppose to find random people to walk up to , feed and start a conversation. Unsuccessfully talking my way out of the activitiy (because I'm awkward lol) the man gave me a promo and a handsome friend to feed so I figure, why not give it a try. But of corse I got one of the most awkward questions on the table to ask my new friend ....
I have to say , even though I intended on stuffing my face with grapes and cheese and dipping off I actually ended up having a good time. I wouldn't mind attending another one of their ice breaker events .
