We all have busy lives! There’s always something happening…if not work, it’s school, if you’re not attending a wedding it’s either a baby shower or bridal shower, for the ladies. For the men, a game has to be watched, the car has to be fixed some sleep has to be slept 😂 let’s just call them manly things. But we all have something that needs to be done especially over the weekend after a laborious week making money.
Unfortunately amidst all this, I feel like we loose track of making and maintaining the relationships we form. I am a big culprit of this 😥. But not all hope is lost, the fat lady hasn’t sung the last line yet ergo #SquadDay.
I met this good people when doing my graduate studies and let’s just say they got me through the period where life was happening – school, work, life, play, you name it. Most times we’d meet up after class at the parking lot or over some terrible coffee and chai in the school cafeteria till we’d get ‘kicked out’ cause they were closing up. School was done, but as I said life happens. So when I get a chance to meet, greet, probably eat and most definitely laugh with this lovely blend of friends, I’ll celebrate them.
Last Saturday, we (for those who made it) ended up at one of our friends ‘local’ (pronounced loko), let’s just say I have friends who demand a lot from a local but wow! I loved it. If I had a local, this would feature somewhere on the list. The view from the rooftop bar and lounge at the Tune Hotel. It’s breathtakingly beautiful, gives you a great view of Nairobi, when you catch the sunset and there after into the night when the lights go on under a night sky all around. Just that. Beautiful!
My drink of choice for the day was the ‘dawa’ Cocktail and I got to sample their fries and chicken wings which we chowed down and if it wasn’t from the food we’d shared before we ended up here, I would have had servings of thirds and probably fourths because they were delish!
Great chill out spot for friends and/or with your significant other but be sure to carry a jacket cause it does get a little breezy at the open roof top although the warmers help and there is a dance floor to get you to warm up.
I’ll be back soon for sure, but wherever I am with this people is just great, even the parking lot 😊.
Where do you go for your #SquadDay or #DrinksDay? PS. Tomorrow the weekend is here, if you didn’t have a spot now you do. Thank me later
