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.

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.vashtie_birthdaydinner_JFW_5201415Alex 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.
