So, yes…my birthday was April 23rd and no…I’m not one of those people that makes their birthday a month long celebration. I do, however, work a lot and travel (lately) so I have to break up birthday dinners with friends over time. SO…last Friday I had a lovely dinner with my friends that were in town from Paris, London and Boson at Jack’s Wife Freda…including the dudes from BLACK RAINBOW and my management team – Jonny Shipes, Druha and Noha. It was a really great time.
Jay Smith of Black RainbowDruha and Noha, these guys hold me down on the daily!
Later that night we went to see my boo thang, Alex Sossah, who was also in town for a blip. It happened to be at a gay club, but hey – I’m not complaining. I think I was a gay man in my past life.Alex Sossah and Vashtie.
After, we got a cab and went to the Bowery Hotel where we were told it was closed to non-guests of the hotel – but, my friend works there and we got on. A lot of people think you have to be well-known or super cool to get into nice places, but really – it’s all about who you know and sometimes who you know are just regular cool ass people that work in super chic places. Just some advice.
