HER: Part II

This piece I started a while ago, but wasn't able to find the right color or think of the right name for the piece, so it's been a while. I think I'm on the right track now and hopefully this will be done before too long.

And yes this piece is about someone that I know.

MUSIC BY: Dead Prez, "Mind Sex"

I started this piece a few days ago, but I wasn't happy with what I had so far. If you look close you can see 2 or 3 other sketches under the top sketch. This is slightly a new directions for me (more detailed) so we will see what the final out come will be. For the record, I was going to make this a happier piece than is it turning out to be. Sometimes you have to do what the canvas is telling you to do instead of what you are planning to do.

Harlem Vintage Adds Nectar Wine Bar

Someone has finally granted my wish! And they did a great job to boot. The lovely folks over at Harlem Vintage have turned-it-up-a-notch and have added NECTAR.

NECTAR, a wine bar, is a their latest venture. I have been there twice and both times I was completely impressed with their choice and knowledge of wine.

Beth, the head wine stewart is amazing and very knowledgable. Ask her any question about wine and she will know the answer.

I am so glad to see that someone finally got it right. I am looking forward to many interesting evenings with friends as we sit back, relax and enjoy Harlem's Newest Wine Bar. (Actually the ONLY wine bar in Harlem)

Congrats & Good Job! Harlem Vintage.

You're Looking At The Man

My cousin sent me this video today. Brings back so many memories. When we were growing up NWA wrestling was hot, far better than the wrestling on TV today. Rick Flair was one of the greats, like Hulk Hogan, Macho Man etc. This is classic.

So No More Ceviche?

Crave is closed?

I just heard from a GOOD friend of mine that the Ceviche Restaurant Crave is closed due to the "falling-crane-accident" that happend a few months back. I'm not sure if I'm going to take Crave off of my list of places I love. It was actually a good restaurant. And I had a great time eating there. Small intimate place, but great service and

It sucks...but I'm glad that I was able to eat there before the restaurant was hit by the crane.

So...peace out to Crave!!!
You guys did a great job.

Can You Say $5 Mojitos & Free Tapas

Yes my friends I kid you not. There is a place, in this beautiful city that we call home, that has the audacity to feature FIVE DOLLAR MOJITOS & FREE TAPAS every Monday night until closing. And on top of that they have the nerve to have some of the sexiest mamacitas you will ever see on the Upper West Side.

Yes my friends it is true. Come to Calle Ocho any Monday night and you will see yours truly knee deep in my favorite libation, The Sparkling Mojito. Now you might say, "Bougie Negro, What is a Sparking Mojito?" Well, I'm glad you asked. A Sparkling Mojito is a regular mojito that is topped off with a healthy touch of Vueve Clicquot champagne. The mixture may seem too much for the novice Mojito drinker, but I promise you my friends once you had the Sparkling Mojito you will never be the same again.

So next time you are looking for something to do on a Monday evening, feel free to join me and the sexy mamacitas of the UWS for a few Sparkling Mojitos and the tasty tapas at Calle Ocho.

TIM the bartender is the awesomest dude on earth.
