there’s so much going on at any given time in america’s coastal hubs, bay area, new york city. so many of my folks in the bay just got into the prince tour, with the mad sheila-e cameo. so jealous! i remember bartending for shelia e’s birthday at sweets ballroom, the whole musical estevez family, a sight to behold. so jealous. ;p
the other day, i heard someone ask, “is new york city overrated?” the question stuck in my mind, because it may, but only for the under-adventurous. as a friend reminded me, there’s plenty of mystery here in nyc, but you gotta be fearless enough to tap that vein with heart. and health. here’s some photo’s from a few recent events that clearly show, brooklyn will never be overrated. for example, last night i was at southpaw last night for rah dig’s all female hip hop showcase, where i was blown away by folks like nitty scott mc reppin coney. there’s live footage to come, promesa! some shots from bedstuy, slick rick’s lodi dodi birthday party (brooklyn bowl), prospect park coming into spring, and a yours truly event, roopstar holding down the last weds comedy show at solo’s, the onliest hood bar in ditmas.
