Tribe Called Curl May Kinks & Drinks Event Recap

Tribe Called Curl Kinks and Drinks

Kinks & Drinks is a monthly meetup hosted by Tribe Called Curl for naturalistas to connect with each other, share tips and celebrate our curls. It is a ticketed event held at a different venue on the fourth Thursday of every month, and the May event was held at 333 Lounge in Brooklyn. I rounded up my curlfriends to check it out and see what it’s all about.

Upon arrival, each attendee received a gift bag along with a raffle ticket to win more goodies, a number for group assignment and the first 30 attendees received a ticket for a complimentary glass of wine. There was also complimentary hor d’oeuvres which included some finger licking good chicken wings, and additional food and drinks was available for purchase.

After everyone arrived and settled down, we split into groups by number (given upon arrival) to play the My Clique Bad game where each of us shared something interesting about ourselves with our fellow team members. My team (#3) was deemed the most interesting group and won. We split the goodies from two extra gift bags amongst ourselves as our prize.

Special guests included SheaMoisture Beauty Ambassador Master Stylist Diane C. Bailey who discussed how to take care of and protect your natural hair during the Summer months, and Karen Tappin of Karen’s Body Beautiful who discussed her new talk show “Karen Says.”

This was my first natural hair event and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. My friends and I had an amazing time and I can’t wait to do it again.

When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.

      Thank you so much. I highly doubt that you’ll be turned away. It would be the perfect opportunity to convert you to a naturalista lol 😉
