Last week, Boom and I went to the Blue Nile Ethiopian Restaurant for the first WAC event we were able to attend – learning about Indego Africa – a non-profit that helps Rwandan women earn money from their handicrafts while training them so that they can someday be more self-sufficient.
It was really interesting – learning about the non-profit as well as checking out the Blue Nile. I really want to go back and try the restaurant not during an event. It was quite well attended, which is good.
We also went to Grooves Restaurant and Bar – for an opera event. It is in the Third Ward, so I don’t think we would have ever just happened upon it. I like being brought to places that I likely would never go to – ’tis a good thing. And the HGOco opera / blues project was really quite interesting.
