A day of free flowing drinks, exploring, friendships and networking! I was invited by my sister to participate in the 3rd annual BrunchCon where hundreds of loyal brunch goers meet to learn of local eats, groove to good music, and a great time with tons of photo op. Courtesy of Lyft, I rode my way to the Brooklyn Expo Center where I met a decent line and walked my way right into the VIP entrance. I was greeted by two lovely ladies who checked my online ticket, swagged me out with a wrist band and laced me with a well filled VIP swag bag. Topping the warm welcome with a generous mimosa upon entry, I glided in and met my sister and her good friend. We joined tons of lines- chicken and waffles, hoagies, meatballs, iced cream, drinks, drinks and more drinks!
For the past few weeks, I’ve been working like a maniac!
50+ hour work weeks have kept me away from doing some of the things I most enjoy…
Late night dinner with the ladies, Reality T.V. with mi madre, and most importantly, hang time with my chipmunk, Zac. To make up for time lost, I took the most important man I know out for an evening at the park.
The weather had been awesome the entire day. I couldn’t miss a moment!
My good friend Laurel, otherwise co-named Charlie came to Brooklyn for a few short hours. We had a little breakfast food in the middle of the afternoon at Ms Dahlias Cafe, went bargain shopping at a very well hidden Salvation Army on Atlantic Avenue, and caught up on lost time.
Who can resist the awesomeness of the AfroPunk Festival?
Every year since 2008, I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy the rawness and excitement of great black artists. Whether it be great musicians, skaters, or painters, each year AfroPunk has something new to offer. At Commodore Park, wonderful people put together this “great engagement” where you’ll get to whitness BMX Rider contests, Live performances from both renowned, Independent, and basement bands, Graf artists and designers; all uniting for two whole days. Unfortunately last year, Brooklyn missed out on all the fun thanks to Hurricane Irene. This year, we have tons to look forward to. Best of all,
