Soul Sistahs

Can I like this song without being a soul sistah? Can I say ‘soul sistah’ if I am a white male? Is ‘soul sistah’ even race specific? What criteria does a girl have to fit to be called a soul sistah? If I can’t say ‘soul sistah,’ what can’t soul sistahs say about me? Can I explain myself? I mean, I’m not trying to be derrogatory or hurtful, I just think that the term ‘soul sistah’ really applies to this particular artist. She sings with conviction and passion and has a message. Are my boys gonna make fun of me when I admit to liking the message? I think her dozens are pretty good. You know how Nas and Jay-Z are always in shit with each other (and Nas always sells more records, ’cause he’s the better rapper, but that’s beside the point) because they just got beef? Well here are my contentions with THAT:

1) What are your problems? You make so much cash, you have entourages, let it go already. But if you couldn’t . . .

2) . . . Could you guys just sit down and talk it out over a nice cup of international coffee (And remember that waiter? What was his name . . . . ? How could we forget JEAN-LUC!)

3) What do you little hoes think about this nubian queen spittin flava on yo’s ass like it was some kind of crazy thick mucous or sumthin?

Whatup now? Huh? Whatup NOOOOOOOW!

Sorry, I just reverted to my ‘Can’t Hardly Wait’ character played by Seth Green for a second there. I think I need to lie down.

Ellary’s Greens

This new West Village establishment had a lot of thought put into it. It is the first foray into restaurants for the New Orleans native Leith Hill. She’s just as energetic and vibrant as the drinks they serve here. When you arrive, the bright light streaming in from the future herb garden in back and the die-cut leaf screen overhead gives you the feeling of walking into a forest. It’s a very well done restaurant […] Read More


I have to say that I was really impressed with Thalassa. It’s a Greek restaurant that’s in a building that’s owned by a shipping company and has been there for the last I don’t know however many years. It seems like if you own the building, you’re going to have a better possibility of being able to manage a restaurant at the bottom of it, but the food here speaks for itself. To the left, […] Read More

Oficina Latina

I really enjoyed eating at Oficina Latina. The thing that I enjoyed the most was talking to the owners, Paolo and Max. These guys are passionate. They’re passionate about food, travel, and design. All three things about which I am also passionate. It’s so much fun to talk with people who share your outlook on life. I really think these guys have it down. When you go into Oficina Latina, you notice the decor immediately. […] Read More

Jeanne & Gaston

As I am trying to do more food related stuff in New York City, I accepted a press invite to Jeanne & Gaston. I never heard of this place. It’s on 14th. 14th is a weird place to have a high-class, smaller restaurant. You wouldn’t think it would be a weird place to have a restaurant, but it is. I’ve been to two of these in the past year or so, and it’s only weird […] Read More
