Spent my Friday night in Harlem! It had been awhile since I'd been uptown and it felt so familiar. Despite all the changes and the gentrification, something about Harlem remains so black, so true and so good. Harlem Arts Festival was celebrating it's 5th Anniversary and I got to spend the evening listening to Divinity Roxx and India Carney play - lovely and so charismatic. My guys Granville and Julian backed up both ladies and killed - as usual. It was an honor to support this organization and to be supported by them. Also great to see so many familiar faces out doing the same.
My bestie is having her first baby in January, so I spent Saturday hosting her baby shower. We basked in all her baby bump glory and jammed out to Spanish music with a little Brooklyn Biggie sprinkled in. Our friends Marlz and Anjali came all the way from AZ to surprise - priceless! Good friends, good food and lots of good vibes. So excited to meet this new little life!
Missy and I have been really taking advantage of our Sunday's lately. We've been exploring our borough, eating lots of good food and spending quality time with friends. It's been really filling us up. We've gotta take advantage before this winter destroys our spirits. LOL Started out at Chavela's for brunch (again), swung by Corner Grind for a warm Chai latte and ended at Bedford Hall for some football and Laguanitas. Perfect Sunday!
