Welcome to Eventfully Blonde, Jessica Sula's weekly blog about her experience being a summer intern for BRAVO!. We love our intern blogs and hope you enjoy following Jess!
July 6 -July 10, 2015
Through the hard work during the week, we were able to take some time out of the office together and enjoy Kensey’s last few days working here in the D.C. office. On Wednesday, we were lucky enough to be a part of a tour and networking event at Nationals Park. We toured the many rentable spaces available for events throughout the stadium which honestly surprised me to how much potential is in a stadium that I had not thought of before. After the tour, we were about to mingle with others within the D.C. event planning industry in a beautiful home plate suite over delicious food and drinks. Unfortunately, the evening was cut short due to the continuous rain and cancellation of the game but it was an amazing and informational experience.
On a much sadder note, like previously mentioned, this was Kensey’s last week before she moved to her at-home office. On Thursday, we spent her last day enjoying District Donuts that she had bought for us and attending a delicious lunch with the team at Osterio Morini thanks to Nancy. Today is my first day in the office without her and I already miss asking her a million questions as my right hand desk buddy, but she will not be absent considering we will be in constant contact over Skype.
As for my weekend in D.C., it was amazing! After a Friday night out on H Street exploring some new bars, my roommate Nikki and I spent our Saturday in Georgetown, a place I have been dying to explore more. We went to the many stores and boutiques the town has to offer as well as a much needed stop to Sephora. In between shopping we had an amazing lunch at an Italian restaurant called Paper Moon, which is a place I will definitely be back to. Right after we got home, we headed to a Bastille Day celebration at Wunder Garten in NOMA with fellow intern Bryan and our friend Hanno. Let’s just say it was a one-of-a-kind experience. There were burlesque dancers and many dressed in French maid costumes along with a selection of beers and a few food trucks which we indulged in. We ended our weekend going to the movies in China Town to wind down from our eventful adventures.
This past week was amazing overall and was definitely well spent considering this was my first weekend staying in D.C. in a good while. I am looking forward to seeing what this week entails as well as what it will be like to experience my birthday in the city! As always, cheers to whatever comes next.
