April Birthday Meetup
Kansas City Travel Blog› entry 2 of 2 › view all entries
After our St. Paddy's meetup, we discovered a few of us local TBs shared birthdays just a few days apart (April 10, 12, and 15). So we decided to get together on April 11 to celebrate at Tasso's Greek restaurant in KC. It was a small TB group, but very large in quality! Lola (April 12), Dalmia (April 15), myself (April 10), and Mark were present. Mark (travelman727) had just returned from his China trip the day before, so we appreciated him taking time out of his schedule to join, and also to bring us great gifts from China!!!! The April birthday babies who couldn't join us (but who we remembered in drinks) were Bennie, Erin, and Yadi! Part of the entertainment included bellydancing...I remember all too well the last time I was entertained with bellydancing because I joined in with the dancing and someone on TB (I won't mention names) took video and put it on their blog.
It was a very enjoyable night...we had dinner, exchanged gifts, and discussed our future travel plans (which is always some of the best conversation). We also planned our strategy for another KC meetup in May which will include karaoke and a BBQ at Lola's house. The meetup will be the weekend before Memorial weekend, because after that I will be gone for most of the summer.
I was kinda jealous because my good friends in Vegas and L.A. had their "TB core" group in both locations, and here in the midwest I had nothing...but now we are growing our own TB core group and I'm very proud of our little group!!!! ;)
