I mentioned last week that I would be heading to an event in LA codenamed Drink Up Los Angeles. It was the brainchild of Leah, a long-time LA blogger who I've crushed on for quite some time. In total, I think around sixteen people showed up (including the always awesome Nicopolitan), some of them bloggers, some of them not, and some of them former bloggers.
Part of the fun of the night was ordering food from a computer (and then paying your bill from the computer), which you know, had my inner nerd satisfied. Plus, it was an interesting conversation piece. But easily the best part of the evening was meeting such cool people, all of whom were open, welcoming, and generally amazing in every sense of the word. It reminded me once again that the internet can be an amazing tool when it comes to meeting people you would otherwise probably never meet.
Arguably one of the best points of the evening, though, was that after the main uWink dinner, a bunch of us walked thirty feet and landed in a restaurant that turns into a karaoke bar at 11pm. History has taught us that I am a karaoke fool, and much singing commenced. The defining moment of said singing was when Leah requested we do a duet version of Love Will Keep Us Together. The picture you see at the top of this post was taken while we were singing Leah was singing and I was going insane since there was a microphone in front of me. It pretty much sums up, in one single moment in time, how much fun I was having. Seriously, I can't wait for the next one of these to roll around.
