You have now entered my I’m in my zone New York City’s Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum (46 street & 12th avenue) which is filled with so much history hosted a memorable concert headlining The Roots last night. To sum it up The Roots is an American Hip Hop/Neo Soul band that was formed in 1987 by Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter and Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. (Don’t say I never taught you anything)

The crowd was in anticipation and stood outside in the rain just to see The Roots deliver an epic performance. DJ VICE got the crowd hype as he mixed from an illuminating changing panel a blend of hits from Watch The Throne, techno music and today’s hits. Sponsors such as Pandora Internet radio and State Farm were in attendance. State Farm provided blinking sunglasses that were a crowd favorite as well as the red T-shirt which were given away if you sung their jingle.

The crowd roared, as they waved their hands and repeated line for line The Roots classics. It was an honor to be amongst legends. Despite the puddles, gusty winds and temperature drop the drinks were still flowing, everyone was singing in unison and enjoyed the live performance. Their style is very versatile, lyrical and intense. There is a purpose behind their music all in all I enjoyed time traveling through music.

Sweat pants, hair curled, chilling with no make up on. Haha don’t mind my Drake moment this is how I blog. Smiles displaying double dimples and all. Cheers to all of my splashy readers.

My Splash Out on Wednesday September 14, 2011 was crazy. Special shout out to Krystal Garner and Beaye Williams who shared this experience of the opening of Bounce Sporting Club (55 West 21st street between 5th and 6th Avenue) with me.

It was a humid night accompanied by cool breeze and a beautiful sight of the moon. The Red Carpet was rolled out for this star studded event and HipHopGlobal.com was in attendance. I had the honor of mingling with Mario Lopez and we established my dimples are deeper. Harlem’s own Jim Jones my Arubian twin showed love, Scott Disick was fashionably dapper as always, Brooklyn’s Maino supported with his contagious energy. If you haven’t seen my past interview with Maino check it out. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUnbOQnYTg0)

The drinks were flowing Q-Tip was on the 1’s and 2’s and the crowd was pumped. I admit I did slap a few men bottoms all in sport because they were backing it up; all in fun. I loosened some ties and unbuttoned shirts to secure comfort. I danced the night away with an awesome crowd. We recited lyrics from oldies and current goodies, two stepped and harmonized.

No one was messing with my cabbage patch or my running man. Overall, Bounce is a classy outing, filled with life. I wish Cole the best in his endeavors; happy 8 years in service operations. If you are looking for a cool spot to unwind, network and have a good time Bounce located in Flatiron is where you need to be.
