Eating @ Feast

Today was my actual first Travbuddy mini-meet up at the Queen City and an incredible night may I say!!!! And if it was not for Juan, I would not known about this wonderful event was in my own backyard because I been crazy busy lately :P so Thanks Juan.

Well, the night started out by me calling my friend Laura telling her to come and visit me at Charlotte because there was a Travbuddy meeting tonight and she should come! :D She said YES of course plus it was her first TB meet up EVER I could not wait to show her everything thats TB. I called Juan to tell him a new Travbuddy from Salisbury was going to join us and to please wait for us, he was very pleased about meeting Laura.

Happy to be with my TBs!
Before the actual meet up Ian, Juan, Laura and I decided to meet up somewhere else first. The guys were waiting for us at T.G.I Fridays near North Lake Mall, when we got there the guys were already drinking.

It was great to see Juan again and to finally met Ian that came all the way from Virginia just to meet up with us. We had fun talking about "Downtown" and "Uptown"....by the way which one is it? :P we left T.G.I. Fridays around 9:00ish and Ian was kind enough to offer us all a ride to downtown/uptown. :D Once we got into Ian's car our first TravBuddy instinct was to take pictures, talk about meets and future destinations of course! Somewhere in the convesation we started to talk about "Couch Surfing" and "Travbuddies" and somehow, somewhere I came up with the word "CouchBuddy" So do you want to be my CouchBuddy? Maybe we should start a website called "CouchBuddies" :P Oh yes that was the talk of the night! LOL!

Then we finally made it to the actual meet up in Feast @ HOM fashionably late of course somewhere around 9:30ish.

Andi & I
Which it was hosted by James a tribute to Mario and Valerie for visiting North Carolina from Montreal. Whoo hoo! I was excited to meet everyone James, Donna, Mario, Valerie, Santiago, Marie and Wade. Wade came all the way from Raleigh just to play a little game of thumb war with Ian...:P by the way who won that? Later on around 10:30ish I reliezed someone was missing but I did not know who....then it hit me....ANDI!!! I told Juan..."ummm where is Andi, I thought she was suppose to come?" I been trying to meet up with Andi the last two weeks because we live not to far from each other but our busy schedule keep us from it. So I call Andi JUST IN TIME because she was in the upstairs waiting for about an hour for us thinking that we moved the TB meeting somewhere else and was about to leave! Ooooh NOOO this can't BE!!!! :S.
Ian, Kari, Juan, Laura
Juan and I flew up to the second floor to "Play" another part of HOM where people can dance or sit on the terrace and have an excelent view of Charlotte.

Well, when we brought Andi and her boyfriend Marc back to Feast finally everybody could truly party! :D We did cheers, ate some amazing food Laura and I had a delicious panini and obviously the "Papparazzi" or the "Camera wars" started. ROAR!

Well, night was not over but just beginning we went downstairs called Live where James decided to buy drinks for everyone as well we had great music, everybody got laid back in some comfy beds, socializing, drinking, started acting goofy, craziness, more group pictures and as always I had to take a picture with every single person in the group!!!! :D Once more, all of us when back to Play and relaxed in the terrace until everybody started leaving one by one.

The TB Crew!
Laura, Juan, Ian, Wade, Marie and I where one of last people to leave the place around 1:30ish but had to come back because silly little Ian was having a blast with us that he left his credit card at HOM! :P Meanwhile Marie and Juan were enjoying dancing in the streets to the Latin music from "Las Torres" next door and very good dancers may I say!

After getting his card back we went to the parking lot to find Marie's car but for some reason her car got lost along the way. :P Hahaha...we have to search high and low for the silly thing I think we took about an hour to find it. Good thing that I did not brake a sweat or my heels did not fail while walking we had fun along the way! Especially Wade...hehe...he got tired along the way and took a nap in a parking space...or how knows maybe he was trying to be a hobo for the night! LOL :P Finally when we found Marie's car all six of us had to fit in her little car.

Silly Wade...:P
..haha!!! And drop us near our parking lot. I can not wait until my next Travbuddy meeting with exciting people like this and I would definitely want to meet up with everyone of YOU again! You guys and gals gave me an AMAZING night to remember and ALL I want to say is THANKS and HOPE to see you soon!!!!!. :D
