For any woman who wants to learn a little something about the latest gadgets and have a nice evening out, the Best Buy in Hialeah is having a family-friendly Ladies Tech Night on Sunday with workshops geared to women.
It's this Sunday, Oct. 19, from 7:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. after the store closes for regular business hours. Husbands and significant others will not be prohibited from entering the store, but just be aware that it is designed for women.
There will be entertainment outside of the store for children and any husbands or other men who may want to hang around outside waiting for their mothers, wives, sisters, daughters or whomever. There will be food - hot dogs, hamburgers, popcorn - and a DJ spinning records, bounce houses, carousels and other "rides" to entertain children along with a light show.
Inside, there will be at least 14 workshops by Best Buy employees and vendors aimed at educating women on a number of consumer tech products, including: the digital TV transition, High-Def TVs, iPhones, Apple computers, iPods and mP3 players, wireless networking (computers, printers), aircards, parental controls for PCs, the Wii and Wii Fit, camcorders, digital SLR cameras and appliances. Vendors on hand will include HP, Sony, Whirlpool, Samsung and others.
There will be a raffle to win an mp3 player, a 19-inch LCD TV and a digital camera.
It's a chance for women to get a hands-on experience with electronics and ask questions in a no-pressure environment.
