"The Homecoming"

This evening, I checked out the play "The Homecoming" by Harold Pinter at Center Stage in Baltimore. It was a packed house filled with enthusiatic theatre goers who were anxious to see Pinter's dark comedic genius at work. Well, he didn't disappoint. The characters were complex as they were funny, conflicted and unpredictable. It was a slice of life that made you take a step back and say, "Wow, could that really happen?" I loved it!

"Busboys & Poets"

Another Saturday night adventure. Although it was freezing to the bone (lol), my homegirl and I ventured out to DC to none other than "Busboys & Poets" at 5th & K Streets. Luckily we were able to park across the street and quickly run into this eclectic venue. The atmosphere was very inviting with great music that kept you singing and bopping your head throughout the meals and conversations. The service was fast, the food was delicious and conversations were flowing. I'll definitely be back!

"Mentor/Mentee Outing"

Yesterday, my mentee and I had lunch at T.G.I. Fridays. This was our first outing together and we had a lot to talk about which I think slightly annoyed the waitress because we didn't order right away. Anyway, we caught up what we did during the week, what activities she would like to see at the mentoring program and for Black History Month and we gave our selves assignments. That should be fun!

"True Grit"

My first movie of the New Year..."True Grit" - I enjoyed the remake of the 1969 movie which starred John Wayne as a tough U.S. Marshal who helped a stubborn young woman track down her father's murderer. This time around, Directors Joel and Ethan Coen did a great job at the adaption of this classic western by casting Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Hailee Steinfeld, Barry Pepper and Dakin Mathews to tell a compelling story. I really enjoyed.

Then it was time for food and drinks at one of my favorite hangouts - Houlihan's!
