LIFE: Dinner with Robin & Richard Goldberg at Peasant – Learning Barolo

vashtie_peasant_goldberg_141509My dear friends Robin and Richard Goldberg have treated me like a daughter since I met them back in 2005. To be fair, I be-friended them through their son – young Alex Goldberg, whom I stumbled upon in Soho around the age of 11. He was a sassy, smart-mouthed kid that I took under my wig. I even got him a gig at my then job, Nike ID. As the years went by, I’ve really only gotten to be better friends with his parents…funny how that works out

Last night they took me to a swell dinner at one of their favorite places, Peasant. Richard is a wine consultant that specializes in the grape from Piedmonte Italy, over the years he’s given me lots of information on the topic and tonight was no exception. It’s all so fascinating!

SCHOOL GIRL CRUSH: Super Cat

In honor of the fact that I am heading to Jamaica for my very first time and that I am DJ’ing at GoldenEye Resort for NYE – I’m reposting this SCHOOL GIRL CRUSH piece that I did back in March 2010 on Supercat because it will forever be relevant!

First of all, his dapper style and West Indian accent murdered it! In hindsight, he kind of looked like one of my uncles (with that “IND-YAN” mix) and attracted/scared me like every old school West Indian man does. He just had that look of crazy in his blood shot eyes – cool as a cucumber, but after one too many rum and cokes and a domino game gone wrong he wouldn’t be afraid to pull out a “cut lass” and cut that ass or break a guinness bottle on someone’s unsuspecting skull. you couldn’t blame him – It’s just the curry in his blood…

His reign was great and proper.

INVITE: Vashtie DJ’ing in Jamaica at Golden Eye for NYE (PLUS: Webster Hall House Party NYC NYE)

unnamedI am so ecstatic about DJ’ing in Jamaica for NYE. Not only that, but I’m DJ’ing at the famed GoldenEye Resort where English author/journalist and naval intelligence officer, Ian Fleming wrote his James Bond series of spy novels.

Ian Fleming looking like a boss.

Anyways. I have never in my Trinidadian-American life visited Jamaica. I am so excited to visit. Not only is the island magic in my mind (reggae, dancehall, jerk, Super Cat), but as an island spirit…I know it will be divine!

If you are around or looking for a getaway, get yourself a ticket. We can hang and take grams.

Or, if you are in NYC – my party at Webster Hall will be on and popping! Go and party with my friends. Since I won’t be there, feel free to talk junk about me with my co-workers Huggy Bear, Deemehlow and Oscar 1992…I won’t care while under the hot Jamaican sun!
