They be loving the crew! Cheers to all of my splashy readers let me Splash you in on some of my activities last night. Kewl Kids Collective attented the Men’s Journal 50 of the most adventurous men lecture and reception. Our second stop was where HBO pulled out all the stops to present the BESSIE 81 THEATRE TOUR FINALE featuring D-Nice and a surprise performance by Janelle Monae.

To celebrate the upcoming premiere of HBO’s original film, “Bessie,” the award-winning cable company launched an event series in New York this week honoring the legacy of the blues-jazz singer called, “Bessie’s 81 Theater Tour.” The biopic starring Queen Latifah, will air at 8pm on HBO.

There were fashion forward people, influential mentions and party goers who all enjoyed themselves. Janelle Monae put on an electrifying, high octane performance as she normally does. While belting her heart out to Tightrope, displaying versatility on Yoga and representing on Q.U.E.E.N.

Good morning to you. The birds are chirping. Hiii splashy readers and bacon lovers from across the globe. On Saturday April 25th I attended New York City’s Bacon and Beer Classic 2015 at Citifield (123-01 Roosevelt Ave). There were two sessions I chose the evening session to have a chance to have an opportunity to see the view of the gorgeous field lit up. It was a warm and beautiful day to enjoy a variety of treats with my favorite food BACON!, an assortment of beers, VIP treatment and games such as jumbo Jenga, sack toss and bungee run.

I had an awesome time, experienced oure stomach joy from the bacon mac n cheese, basil bacon pizza and laughed until my cheeks hurt from being Wiped Out on the Bungee Run. If you missed this event I feel bad for you son as a crowned Bacon Ambassador (I just made that term up; LOL) I was in heaven. As a VIP attendee I was given the opportunity to explore the array of choices before the crowd, have access to the Mets field by flashing my pink band and share this amazing experience with friends.

Don’t mind me I took a brief pause to answer a few texts and then it was back on the road to goodness and getting piggy with it na na na na na na. I was all smiles as I visited the tables of food with a surprise at every turn to hear how bacon was incorporated. The ceramic cups given to you upon arrival for your drinks were so cutesy. With every sign there was a welcome of more to come.

This unique bacon and beer tasting event was a huge success. For the second consecutive time the event SOLD OUT there were 4,500 bacon and beer loving attendees per session and over 40 local restaurants and 50 plus breweries that served up their best selections. That is a BIG DEAL!
