And then I'd shimmy over and go, and then this is is where the doo...

"I would leave sessions and weddings and events and headshot sessions, and every single person, both men and women that I photographed all had the same narrative. You're gonna Photoshop me, you're gonna change my body, you're gonna make me look younger, thinner, fatter, more curvy. Every single person was dealing with some sort of dysmorphia or some sort of body image issue that they wanted changed. And I was like, why are...

Hey everyone, Hannah here! At a Women's Social Club event not too long ago, after the presentation, I had a chance to sit down with Tiffany Welton, and she told me about her idea for a champagne bar. I absolutely LOVED this idea (we don’t have a concept like that in the Raleigh area).  But what really got my attention was the name of the bar - RBF.  And if you think you know what it means, you're absolutely right! :)

Sara Abernethy is the co-owner of both Wye Hill Kitchen and Brewing in Downtown Raleigh and the stunning new Glasshouse Kitchen in Research Triangle Park.  Sara is the first person I thought of when starting this podcast because Wye Hill was such a special part of the Women’s Social Club’s founding story. Today she shares how she came to Raleigh, buying a restaurant / bar, and somehow surviving through the pandemic.

Today we give you inside access to how The Women’s Social Club began (definitely not how I intended it to), how it’s grown, where we’re at now, and the plans for connecting women throughout the country.  

But instead of listening to me the whole time, I brought in an absolute pro to take the host seat for the first episode - Kathy Hanrahan, the lifestyle editor at WRAL and the host of the WRAL Out and About Podcast.
