JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER
Was fun to see a great mix of my friends at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2014-15 Season Opening Party – featuring music from The Rodriguez Brothers, signature cocktails and a buffet dinner. Always a good time! Be sure to check out its offerings this season: http://www.jazz.org/.
URBAN WORLD FILM FESTIVAL
After that, Ant and I met up with his sister friend Sabrina – in town for the Urban World Film Festival with her client Michael Jai White (whose #falconrising is out and screening this weekend). We popped by SILVANNA to see friend Victor Wyatt’s group British Dependency before we all went to 67 Orange (www.67orangestreet.com) for a late night bite of some of the best food in Harlem courtesy of 67 Orange owner Karl Franz Williams. Many popped by to say HI! The next day, we all gathered at NYC's Refinery Hotel rooftop. It was Ant, his Denver sister Sabrina, her client Michael Jai White, MJW's son Devin, buddy Bobby Roache, and Bobby's FAB eyewear for a pre-celebration of Michael Jai White’s Urban World Film Festival presentation of his new film #falcolnrising – co-starring Laila Ali. Bruce Leroy AKA Taimak was in the house - #uwff! #lastdragon
