    I just made a last minute decision to go to the Essence Festival-but can't find a place to stay. Does anyone need a roommate?

    Is there a female that is looking for a female roommate for the Essence festival trip? I'm asking for my female friend that isn't a member of the group. This would be her 1st time to Essence but the cost of booking a hotel room by herself is too much right now. E-mail me privately if you are interested.
