If your travels ever find you in the A, be sure to pop by the Linnethia Lounge, a bar/lounge/events space with great music, bomb drinks, and performances, owned by the endlessly effervescent, Nene Leakes:
On my recent dip down South, I made my way to Duluth, specifically 2255 Pleasant Hill Rd Suite 470, to see what Ms. Leakes had in store. The answer? Lots of fun!
While I was sad to miss the performance by Saucy Santana (security stopped me and my photographer at the door for bringing a camera–eventually we made our way in!), I did make it in in time to sample crab cakes, pasta with shrimp, and lobster tacos, puff on hookahs, and stare dreamily at frothy cocktails with names like “Rich B*tch.”
Nene Leakes is an absolute delight in person, as she is on TV. On one of the first seasons of Real Housewives of Atlanta, she said she was known for being the life of the party. She was right!
For the night, I wore a dress by Nigerian brand, Tubo RTW, with gold accessories. Nene lounged in Oscar de la Renta!
I always love to support women owned businesses, specifically those owned by women of color! So be sure to show Nene some love as she launches this new venture!
Visit the Linnethia Lounge at 2255 Pleasant Hill Rd Suite 470.
