Summer is winding down in NYC which means it is getting cooler! However. in July, most days were unnecessarily hot!

One day, my friend Lisa and I decided that after days of hiding under the A/C, we should venture out into the sun and pick up some vitamin D. We visited a great caribbean/southern restaurant in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. I ordered spicy shrimp, mac and cheese, and candied yams and Lisa picked the jerk chicken, plantains and mac and cheese. Talk about delicious! To beat the heat, I picked mango lemonade and she got the home made fruit punch. By the time we finished, we were in heaven!

How are you enjoying the summer? What's your favorite season/why?

Out And About: Singersroom Presents Lydia Caesar and Ro James

Thursday night, I attended a show powered by, at the Brooklyn Aloft hotel, featuring two of R&B’s amazing up-and-coming artists: Lydia Caesar and Ro James. It was hosted by former Bad Boy artist, Cheri Coke (formally Cheri Dennis).

Ro James performed songs off his mini EP ‘Coke,’ (which is too good!); while Lydia performed a mixture of songs (including a cover of Rihanna's 'Stay'). There were a lot of people from NYC’s cool crowd; Luke James (currently on tour with Beyonce), one of the Coco and Breezy twins, and rapper Driicky Graham (“Snap Backs & Tattoos”), to name a few.

I had a great time!
