Last Wednesday night, 11 of us met at the Courtyard in Marina Del Rey for dinner and drinks and then we saw The Secret Life of Bees.
The time spent together was great. We were a diverse group with interests ranging from knitting to pole-dancing (NOT the kind done at "Gentlemen's Clubs"!) and professions including acting, esthetician, nurse case manager, caregiver, sales professional, manager, teacher, librarian, marketing professional, and audiologist. A couple of us brought guests and made the circle bigger!
Stories and experiences were shared along with food and wine and cocktails.
The movie, The Secret Life of Bees, was a good one with particularly good work done by Dakota Fanning, who is now a beautiful young woman, and Queen Latifah in a more serious role than usual.
If you haven't been to one of these happy hour/dinner and movie nights, come to the next one, which will probably be in January after the holiday season. Wherever we go, and whatever mixture and number of women is able to come that night, we always have a good time.
