Clubs are hot, people step on your feet and spill overpriced drinks on your clothes (or on your head, if you’re short like me). And let’s not forget the random men grabbing your ass as you and your friends hold hands just to make it to the restroom. Nope, I’m good!
Don’t get me wrong. I like to dress up, sip cocktails and meet interesting people… just in a more controlled setting. Yeah, I’m a bit of a control freak. As such, when my awesome friends are looking to run the town, they call me! I know where we need to be, with whom and doing what.
Who am I? Genese Jamilah, a Black girl from the Peach State trying to make it in the Big Apple. I’m a work in progress, enjoying the process. I founded the I Don’t Do Clubs event blog in August 2011 as a solution for young Black professionals who are looking for social events beyond the typical nightclub scene.
