October 29, 2019 Celebrating An Amazing Woman

I was strolling down Rue de Bagnolet late one Monday night in Paris headed to Mama Shelter to enjoy some music & martinis when I came upon the intersection of Rue de Bagnolet & Rue de Lesseps. I stood here for a few moments and realized that the streets were almost dead

One of the most epic moments from this past summer was spent at the Brooklyn Loves Michael Jackson party hosted by Spike Lee. From the promos of the party, I expected it to be a great time but in reality it was so much more. When we got to Prospect Park was bumping! People wer

I tried sangria on my 2nd trip to Barcelona, SP many, many years ago (98'). I was on a 3-day layover and hanging with my fellow flight attendant buddies, Nitza Rodriguez, Gladys Montisenos & Jorge Carballo who was our self-appointed city tour guide. On this one particular day,
