Last night, A few women gathered for A Curl’s Night Out Natural Hair Meetup at Ruby’s Kitchen. A family style restaurant, Ruby’s Kitchen is like a big ole dining room where the whole family can get together and break bread together. Decorated with real dining room tables and chairs, flanked with a few booths, the overall feel of the place was just like home.
It was cold last night, the previous night was so nice you didn’t need a coat to go out, but it didn’t stop a few ladies from coming out to get together and talk hair, health and more with one another. Taking the time to really connect and learn about each other and share experiences, tips and advice was a valuable part of the evening.
Kimberly Baber, owner of True Essence Naturals, shared how the benefits of African Black Soap, Avocado Oil, Mango Butter and Shea Butter can drastically change dry, irritated skin and scalp, as each serves as a healing balm to eczema and other skin/scalp conditions.
Everyone ordered a completely different meal from the large selection of menu options. Ruby’s Kitchen really is like Mama’s Kitchen at home. From perfectly crisped and seasoned fried chicken wings to Baked Tilapia, Cabbage, Potatoes and Onions, Sweet Bread and Corn Bread and Succulent Desserts, everything you can imagine was on the menu and cooked upon ordering for everyone to enjoy. The portions were large, enough to take home and snack on in the middle of the night because it was just that good. You couldn’t help but giggle at yourself from licking your fingers.
The service was great. Our server brought all that we needed upon request, answering any questions we may have had. Good customer service is a plus for any business and they certainly had it at Ruby’s Kitchen.
The night continued with 4 rounds of AFRO (Bingo) and game prizes and ended with the signing of the My Natural is Beautiful Board, words of affirmation about how everyone feels about their natural hair. A group photo was taken and we hugged our good byes until the next time.
