Food Art & Love Noir

#AllBlackWeekend in the Bay started with hashtags: #BlackPantherSoLit #WakandaForever #FoodArtLoveNoir & ended with a BANG!

The premiere of Black Panther was a prelude to our, Food Art & Love event. With so much #BlackLove in the Bay Area and all the people who came from other states to be a part of the premiere the anticipation was insurmountable.

Saturday night in the International Suite at Oakstop in Oakland was the first Food, Art & Love Noir.

We brought out some of the Bay Area’s best to give attendees a night of culture, for us and by us.

 

 

Chef Satia of Fifty Seven North offered up hors d’oeuvres & bottomless mimosas & bellinis.  Some of the offerings included food from their menu: jerk rib tips, rice pilaf, lamb meatballs & gouda grit cakes w/fire prawns.

Randy Babb of NoPrints premiered new pieces and showcased his vast collection of prints, canvases, jewelry and more. Guests walked away with prints he auctioned off and won an original piece in the raffle.

Sis, Let’s Do Brunch & Spill The Tea

WHO’S BRUNCHIN WITH US AND OUR GIRLS?!!

 

Saturdays In November Are For Brunch in Berkeley!!

Aspire To Inspire One Girl At A Time.

We’re sooooo excited for our first seasonal Sis, Let’s Do Brunch & Spill The Tea. Be ready to fellowship with black girls over some amazing food and tea. This will be a brunch centered around the lives, dreams and aspirations of young women.

We’ll welcome guest speakers who will share their journeys as an inspiration. Young women will tell of their aspirations and inspire us all. Then we spill all the tea…encourage the conversations, change the narrative and aspire to inspire one girl at a time. Not one to miss.

Spill the Tea

As women, some of us were raised to fear the yes and doubt ourselves while pushing others forward. My favorite writings of empowerment are from women who write about fear and self-perseverance.

 This seasonal Brunch & Tea will celebrate women from every facet of life. There will be sharing of life experiences, what mentoring is and what we believe are our purpose in life.  Join in…chat, share, eat, schmooze and sip tea!! You’re encouraged to bring friends and family along.
