Hello ladies. June I will be in my first full year of a non- hair chemical lifestyle. Right now I short about 2 inches after cropping down in October. I would love to meet fellow nappturals in the baltimore area. It would be great if we could meet somewhere local like a restaurant at the gallery mall at harborplace or somewhere in that vicinity. I don't drive and usu. my SO works during the weekend so that's kept me from venturing further out in the past. I have recently logged back on after some tragedy and would love to get feedback.

I don't know the first thing about planning an event but would be willing to try. Please let me know how you all would feel about this or if someone else is planning something soon, please let me know.

Thanks

Hi Pearce!

I would love to attend a get together in Baltimore. The Inner Harbor sounds good, there are plenty of places to eat there. Let's pick a date (any weekend is fine with me) and get a list of the restaraunts so we can make a choice. If you need any help with arrangements, let me know.

Here\'s a link to the eateries at the <a href=\'http://www.harborplace.com/go/restmenus.cfm?useall=1\' target=\'_blank\'>Inner Harbor</a>

They also have ESPN Zone I never ate in there though.

I vote Phillips or Hooters, but I'm cool with anything.

I've eaten at the ESPN Zone in DC. I thought the food was good. I"ve never been to Hooters. I've been to Phillips the buffet, but not the restaurant. I love seafood! I'm a funny eater, but I'm pretty much open to anything. I should be able to find something I can eat anywhere.

OK :D I see some new names-I KNEW there were some more B-more heads up in here :wink:!

Sounds like March 1 is cool. And Phillips is cool (right?) So how's about a time? Anytime is good for me. But I guess we should make this a lunch deal, like 1, 2 or 3pm to give folks time to get there. Once we have the time and number of attendees confirmed, we will see about making the reservations, I guess...but we still have a couple of weeks, so no rush.

If anyone else has any suggestions post please!

A lunch deal sounds good to me.

I cant totally say where Phillips is, but it is literally right on the Harbor. Like on the same strip where the Imax/Science center and the "Dru Hill" ice cream shop is. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, It's been so long since I ate there... Anyways. I guess this is the deal now.

2:00pm Phillips @ the Inner Harbor. Saturday, March 1

We're still 2 weeks out so we have plenty of time to make any last minute recalls.

I'm assuming we'e going to the buffet. The last time I was there (maybe a year and 1/2 ago) it was located on the lower level under the food court...across from a place that sold fresh squeezed lemonade that was next to a cookie store.

I only remember this because I thought that fresh squeezed lemonade was sooo good!!!

The restuarant is in the same vicinity. If I recall correctly, if you go past that lemonade store I was talking about and go to the end and make a left, Phillips the restaurant, is on the right.

I'm down for either the buffet or the restaurant.

Anyone is welcome to come! The only requirement is that you have an appreciation for natural hair! :D

WOO-HOO! I'm so happy there's gonna be one in Baltimore!

I'm all about the Inner Harbor because it's centralized with plenty of places to eat ;)

March 1st at two sounds fine for me as well - I'll put it in my planner :)

I called them today and the hostess told me that they do accept them for the restaurant, just not for the buffet :)

She said all we'd have to do is get back to her with a head count and let them know what's up.

I am so psyched about attending a gathering, since in the past I have missed SO much since I can't drive and never voiced prior about other options. May this be the beginning of much more bonding to come. Can't wait to go and bask in the glory of other naturals. I just can't decide if I should wear an afro or shake and go, LOL

I might stop through for a minute. I hope I can...the DC Naturals group is having a hair day that day also....
