    • CC June 23, 2011 at 1:01 pm

      but Hauwa, it looks like that wine festival is in Abuja and Lagos… Na wa for Abuja people sha, always complaining there’s nothing to do. Why not just organize something yourselves or go to the events that do happen?

    • mary007 June 24, 2011 at 4:16 am

    there are a lot of things happening in other parts of Naija, just that many dont make it to this site for advertising.

  • ayo June 24, 2011 at 11:18 am

    The bodyworks bootcamp sounds like it would be fun, I so need to get in shape!

  • Thinkn out loud June 24, 2011 at 12:01 pm

    I like concept of body works- just feel its too expensive for a couple of hrs…Also, think organizers should try for a package 1, 3mths… Would once a week excercise be effective?( I know people in lagos hardly have time these days…

    While I’m still thinking out loud, whats up with the misuse”VIP” by event organizers? They “VIP” every event, even one that doesnt need to be. Most think “VIPing” an event classes it up/ makes it more attractive…

    Recently, I went to a food event at a park where different vendors came to showcase their offerings for attendees to sample and buy. While I didn’t mind paying a decent sum at the gate to enter (I thought it was reasonable for safety,to keep area boys out…), but I did not understand why there was a VIP fee/ section (just to seat in a tent) -like the “VIP” did not have to walk around to sample food offerings like anyone else or buy at the same price… SMH
