Geek Girl Brunch Miami: Inaugural Brunch

DSCF2699

I have been so excited for this event since last year when I was chosen to be a chapter officer for the Geek Girl Brunch Miami branch. I had been following the organization for awhile, being a fan of co-founder, Jamila’s blog, Girl Gone Geek. I always wished we had something similar, so I jumped on board the second they started calling for officers. South Florida sorely lacks in geek culture (especially targeted towards females), so I thought it would be a welcomed addition to our city.

Both myself and Aurora (my fellow officer) planned a Harry Potter themed inaugural brunch that would be hosted by Rok: Brgr in South Miami on April 26th. They were generous enough to allow us a big chunk of their outdoor space on their busiest day and time of the week: Sunday brunch! We wanted to make this very special for our new brunchettes, so we reached out to vendors for specialty swag. Each brunchette received a swag bag full of goodies (see full list below) and we gave away some adorable threads from So Effing Cute for the best dressed witch, as well as trivia winners!

Sure these add-ons were great, but honestly, what made the event so special for me personally was the beautiful positive energy swirling around the tables that you could basically touch. Every single girl got along great, and ice breakers weren’t even needed. There was never a break in conversation! Plus, everyone was so grateful as the brunch wrapped up, and equally excited for the next event. They even had to basically kick us out of the restaurant – no one wanted to stop chatting! Overall, it was a truly magical morning and I cannot wait to continue making Geek Girl Brunch Miami bigger, better and more influential in our community.
