Where long distance friendships bridge the gap through cyber chit chat:)
Whats New in YOUR City?
So after some "after work" drinks, I decided what the heck, and to take my friend up on an offer for dinner. Seeing as how i dont get out that much, any place i go to is always a new experience for me, as was the case with UPTOWN, a lounge on the upper east side in NYC. I liked the atmosphere and the vibe was cool, as it provided a loungy, bar like feel, with club appeal. The patrons varied from the "after-workers" to the "getting ready for the clubbers". You can dine at the bar or opt for cozy booth-like seating. They have special signature UPTOWN martinis, of which I had 2, and they were quite delish. For dinner I had a chicken with pasta dish, which couldve been better but still was satisfying. Overall, I would recommend the trendy UPTOWN Lounge for a girls night out or for some after work specials...it was pretty cool indeed...
Then fueled up with the energy from the UPTOWN Lounge, I felt the night was young, and so was I! So I decided to give one of my girlfriends a visit at the club she was working at for the night, and this Friday happened to be Club Aura. I must say...a lot has changed since our days of "Speeed", lol, and as I sat at the door as she worked and took the party-goers $20, $30, and even $40!...prices I surely dont recall ever paying then or now, one thing was made apparent...I sure wasnt young anymore!
2 Great friends. Living in 2 big cities...with big ideas about absolutely everything! J Genese and Minique are just your regular girlfriends...working on their careers, love life, and social life too, all the while keeping in touch through their daily "cyber chit chats", as they like to call them. Friends since elementary school and close since their days of Aquinas highschool, its safe to say that they've come along way together. But it wasnt until their friendship grew long distance that they've become the closest that they have ever been... .....and they owe it all to a little thing called email:)
