NY curlies-meet at devachan?

anyone have plans to go to devachan in mid feb 07? i am about to call and make my yearly appt w carlos, am thinking of going on a weekday evening but if anyone wanted to do a small informal curl gathering, the weekends i am available are sat 2/10; sat 2/24, or the following weekends in march 3/3;3/10. if i go on a weekday i want to go on a tues so i could hit the oldtime jam session at slainte afterwards. it would be fun to meet for dinner or something-

    I wish I lived in NY so I could go to Devachun with you, but I live in Texas, but my sister lives in Newark, NJ maybe I could go visit her.

    I'd love to and I'm in the area but:
      Devachan hair cuts are uber pricey, and I don't think my parents would go for it My parents would defintely not let me meet some people that I know from the internet in NYC!

    oh yeah! tell your parents they are right on. are you a teenager? both Alex and I are over 55 and pretty harmless. if you want to give your folks my email she can contact me. we'll probably go out to dinner after our haircuts.

    well, curliness transcends age for us, but we are probably as old as your grandmother!! your hair is very pretty and i wish you great luck with school and negotiating the pitfalls of adolescence--would not want to have do to THAT again :)

    Sounds like fun.

    I have an appt at Devachan (my first!) next Tues (1/16) at 6pm. If anyone wants to tag along, that would be great! I just got a cool new digital camera and we could document my devacut for the gang here.

    I still get a chuckle when I think of the wavy girl approaching our group of curlies at Starbucks (after the Phyto Universe Curly Gathering) and asking if we were a curly hair club. :lol: And 3 of us reaching for curl ambassador cards!

    They offered me the makeup session, too. I'm supposed to be there at 5:30 for that. I'm hoping I can make it. I had a dr's appt this morning and missed the whole morning of work, so I may not be ablt to rush out the door at 5.

    See ya later, selfcurledgirl! I brought my new digital camera with me. If you can hang out, you can take the before and after pix.

    Sorry we couldn't hang out. I was there until 8 pm with color and cut. Your hair looked great. I am happy with my cut and color. I needed a trim. We need to have another curl gathering.

    What time is your appt ? I haven't been to the new place. Of course right next to the old place, is Dean and Deluca but I don't think they have a place to sit down. There is a kind of wine cafe down the block, actually the cupping room is a nice restaurant over there at 359 W Broadway between broome and grand. Let me know the time and what time you would like to meet and I could post it here. Curly Suz Guide and Plink usually come to cg's.

    Thanks! Too bad you had your head in a sink when I saw you! :lol:

    I think it's the best haircut i've ever gotten! Today, although I can still tell it's a great cut, it's a mess. I tried for second day hair. Since it's so cold here today I absolutely had to wear a hat, so knowing that, I didn't try too much. They used a LOT of [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/DevaCare-Arc-AnGell-p-567.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=devacurl-devacare-arc-angell]Arc Angell[/buylink], so I'm looking very producty today.

    Banjocurl- I am feeling that 8 pm is a bit late for a work night.

    Rose-Sorry you didn't see me too. I do get second day hair. I can't say mine is the best cut but she didn't cut too much which is good. Maybe I am spoiled and hard to please, but she is fine and I only go like twice a year or so. I spent so much money with the cut and color but that is what my second job is for. Did you get the make over? I actually liked the lipstick and may go back for it. What was the name of the brand?

    i totally understand--maybe you could come by around 6 while i am waiting for my appt -we could go for a quick bite at D&D b4 my appt at 7--i could pick up something for alex to ear while they're doing my hair. also Carlos might take me to cut while Alex is being no pooed and we could get done earlier like at 730 perhaps--neither of us is coloring...let's play it by ear--

    The cupping room is a nice place to go. I am glad to hear that Curly Suz Guide is interested. Do you think we could still go there at 6 for a bite and Banjo you could leave for your 7 pm appt and CZG and I can continue?

    Looking forward to meeting. Banjo, they are selling senna make up and I got a free make over and I actually went back today and bought the lipstick and concealer. I liked the lipstick, it is natural looking and she changed my color and I have some discoloration under the eye and the concealer seemed to help. As they just started this it is free, oh I remembered you are in the new place. Well, this was neat anyway. We can exchange numbers nearer to the date. Take care.

    self curl and curly suz--would it still be too late if we were done by 7? I am going to call today and see if i can get my appt switched to 5. alex would be at 6 and then we'd both be done by 7. i am not sure if carlos has an opening then but i will try, let me know if this would be better for you. it would be a bit more of a rush for us but then we could all go out together.
