When I heard about Play Date Charlotte, I instantly reached out to see how I could be apart. Play Date is a night of games and fun held in various cities. As the website says it’s “an alternative to the typical night out or social event. It provides a fun and exciting atmosphere where adults can enjoy good food & cocktails, listen to a variety of music, socialize, and meet great people…all while playing games from Poker to Chess, Connect 4 to UNO, Monopoly to Taboo, Hungry Hippos to Rock’em Sock’em Robots…and EVERYTHING in between! They even feature nostalgic favorites like Pac-Man and PlayDate Signature Games like Musical Chairs, Hula Hoops, and Simon Says!”
I wanted to attend so that I could find out just how much fun it is and report back to you guys on what it’s like to go to an event like this as a plus woman. I wasn’t always a confident plus size woman so going to events that weren’t specifically designed for plus women weren’t even on my radar unless one of my friends begged me to go with them. I understand being self conscious about your body and doing certain activities wondering what people are thinking about you.
We here at Daily Venus Diva believe all women should feel confident in their own body, curves/fat and all. So to help those that are still living behind self-built walls and barriers, I’m going to attend all types of events here in the Charlotte area and get some of the other editors in other cities to do the same. We’ll report to you how it went, what it was like and how we felt. We’ll share pics and videos. Each day we learn just how precious life is and how short it can be, so no more staying at home not living and enjoying life ladies!
