Tuesday, April 16th, 2013 at 11:29 am

and tickets are already sold out at They went up to $29 from $19 per ticket (if I remember correctly) so I wasn’t sure about paying for my ticket in advance anyway.


I’ve heard that if you get to Irving Plaza early (around 8pm), you can pay at the door. If you’re completely confused and have no idea what “Grits and Biscuits” is, look below…

The BoomBox Exhibition

Friday, April 12th, 2013 at 5:23 pm

I stopped into House of Art Gallery earlier today to check out the Boombox Exhibition and they were setting up for what was to be the opening reception. I know by the time many of you see this, the opening reception will have probably ended but the exhibition will be on display for another 2 months.


The concept of the BoomBox Exhibition; presented by House of Art Gallery, is to demonstrate the influence of the boombox through various facets from the 70’s-mid 80’s; such as fashion, music and politics. The Boombox was an intrinsic part of incubating so much sonic New York history, in pulling together this study we’ll see, live and embrace a device that was part of the fabric of the city. — via HOA

The BoomBox Exhibition
House of Art Gallery
408 Marcus Garvey Blvd
btwn Halsey and Macon Street
Brooklyn, New York
Opening Reception: Friday, April 12, 2013, 7p-10p
Exhibition Dates: Friday, April 12, 2013 – Sunday, June 9, 2013

*UPDATED* Rent the Runway Introduces “Our Runway”

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012 at 10:40 am

I first wrote about Rent the Runway back in ’09 and have written about them and rented more than a few times since then. A few weeks ago, I received an RTR invite for an “exclusive launch party.” When I read “we’re throwing in a free dress rental for you and your guest, I knew I’d attend. It was only the day before the party that the let me know what the party was for; Our Runway.

“Inspired by you, it’s the first social shopping platform of its kind where you can browse and rent directly from customer photos to find your perfect look. We’re turning our customers into models because we believe that confidence and happiness – what you show us via your RTR moments – is the truest form of beauty.” — RTR

“The Carrie Diaries” Red Carpet Premiere

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012 at 11:33 am

Because of an early morning doctor’s appointment yesterday, I got to leave my house a little later than normal. Thankfully, I caught a contest on the PIX 11 morning news. After texting about 20-30 times, I won tickets to the red carpet premier of “The Carrie Diaries,” a new TV series about “Sex and the City’s” Carrie Bradshaw before she became a New York writer.

Rhonesha Byng of joined me on the walk along the red carpet and down memory lane (can I say that since I wasn’t old enough to drink Tab when it was popular in the 80s) back to 1984 when Carrie’s obsession with Manhattan began.

Piperlime’s First Store

Thursday, September 6th, 2012 at 10:14 pm

I’ve been rocking with Piperlime since it’s inception in 2007 so it felt right that I be at the first store to open, right here in New York (especially since I hadn’t been to any of the pop-ups).

I was invited to the opening celebration pre-FNO so here’s the recap with pics.

“A little birdie told us you love our website… we’re even better looking in person.” Hmph… just like me. HAHA! I joke, I joke, I kid, I kid.

The event started at 6p and by 5:50p, the line was filled with women…

There were birds everywhere…

and, of course, plenty of shoes…

and food!

End of Summer Round-Up

Thursday, August 30th, 2012 at 9:27 am

Following the weekend of the 8th, there will only be 1 more full weekend before the return of fall on Saturday, September 22, 2012. So sad. I’m going to miss Summer (as I always do). But, this is one helluva way to send it off!

For anyone who was at Grits and Biscuits last month (or those who regret missing it), it’s coming back next weekend… almost. Saturday Morning Cartoons (which is thrown by the same folks) is the 80s/90s version of Grits and Biscuits. I missed the last one, regretfully, so I’ll def be at this one.

Put your dancing sneakers on and warm up those vocals because SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS, the throwback party to close the summer out right, is back at a NEW LOCATION!!!

New Edition, Biggie, Run DMC, Dr. Dre, SWV, LL Cool J and plenty more!!! All these jamz from your younger days will have you singing like you were in the shower and dancing with the excitement of that fool on TV that beat a paternity test! — SMC

For more info on purchasing tickets, and to find out about the free party on Sunday the 9th, look below…
