I love going on ActiveRain Road Trips. I have been having a lovely time disrupting some stellar South Carolina Rainers from their regularly scheduled daily programs. Mattie, Mama Liz, Celina Gleason and Kim Peasley-Parker met some of the Tann Clan today. We had a wonderful time together and we're looking forward to our next visit (which will be very soon).
Kim Peasley-Parker has a beautiful daughter named Mattie who stole the show. Little Chicka was doing her baby bay-bay thang while we were having our social media summit over a fabulous lunch at Clark's Restaurant. Since my TomTom from hell couldn't find a valid satellite signal the entire time I have been running up and down I-95 (bummer), I had to enlist the help of my brother Cedric and his lovely girlfriend Shakela to be my South Carolina guides (which is very cool because he drives a truck and knows everything about these roads - LOL).
Mama Liz selected Clark's Restaurant for our ActiveRain get together and I have to say it is quite impressive. Located just off of I-95 at exit 98 on Highway 6 in Santee, South Carolina, it has a cozy atmosphere steeped in southern hospitality and a spanking fireplace. Beautiful artwork lines the walls and it is going to be the future meeting place of our next group get together.
We're planning a social media event and it may take a few meetings to work out the logistics. Shall we host a REBarCamp? Request an ActiveCamp? Host another Gigglefest? Hmm... I bet you wish you were a fly on the wall for that top secret conversation (LOL). We haven't finished our bloggers agenda (or named it yet) so I will be returning next month after I do my wild card discussion at REBarCamp in Durham, NC. We need to scope meeting and banquet halls and may have to high-jack a couple more Club Chaos members to attend the next social media committee meeting. I vote for Clark's because I am determined to test out more of their menu, however, I realize we have to do travel due diligence with the ladies because we have to be able to accommodate the bay-bays and presenters converging on Santee, South Carolina when we do create our event.
Yup. Santee will be home to what ever it is we finally do cook up. The vote was unanimous (LOL). ;-) Was it the calabash style sea food? The Angus steaks? The local catfish? Clark's famous baked chicken, wonderful pasta and slow roasted prime rib? Hmm... Maybe... It certainly put me in a good mood. Not being able to get lost once you get off I-95 is a huge plus (LOL). Actually, it was a lot of factors and I went to the tourist center to collect information on the area, which is why I am so gung-ho on the location.
BTW, did you know that Celina Gleason has an amazing sense of humor? Seriously subtle and southern (LOL). Actually, everyone at the table does (LMAO). My southern gal pals have it going on (LMAO). It was mad fun from the first minute we all laid eyes on each other and the comfort level was amazing. I loved every minute of it. Transparent writers are very easy to connect with because you already know what you need to know to become great friends. The best part is getting to hug and kiss your buddies in real life and show them off to your family. I am very much looking forward to my family becoming friends with their families. Celina gave me a very cool gift and I shall save it for when I get home so I can share it with my boys. Noah is going to love getting his hands on it (LOL). :-)
It was lovely catching up and sharing info about our families and friends. Social media made this happy gathering possible. Don't waste your opportunities to enjoy some of the best moments of your life. Good friends and good food is always nice and making new friends who feel like old friends even better.
Thank you, Mama Liz for hosting our luncheon and thank you Celina and Kim for showing my non-blogging loved ones an exceptionally nice time. :-)
