R&M : Battling Sun and Snow!

R&M have not been out and about to any good events lately! Marvin is stuck in New York with snow and ice and I’m in Dallas getting used to my new job!

Today it hit 78 degrees and I really hope that those temps are here to stay. I’ve had enough of the cold!

I’m looking forward to the Arts Festivals coming this Spring and Summer and all of the Food Truck events!!

I’m so thankful for all that God has done in my life over this last year! He is truly worthy to be praised! New apartment, new job…He’s amazing!

Marvin and I appreciate everyone who keeps up with our blog! See you around town!

Harlem Week in Review 2013

Lets start off by saying i usually don’t get the full scene and feel of Harlem week because of the busy moving season; but this year i was lucky enough to have some down time! I got to check out the Summer stage performances at Marcus Garvey Memorial Park and some of the activities at the Harlem State building.

There was a full blown festive feel; way different from many other street fairs we have covered. The true Melting pot of New York and  the ever changing villagers of Harlem!

The activities themselves were very grand and fit for all ages, which was great to see! We saw kids rock climbing (with the aid off police officers) to double-dutching.

Surprisingly, the foods may have been the only down side. With all of the diverse tastes  in Harlem, the only things they really had were  varieties of fried chicken,  fries and  fish and chips.

Some of the awesome things we got to see were the Children’s Festival, the Black College expo, Fashion Flava Show, an outdoor film festival by Spike Lee,  Jim Brown,an american hero, and a live broadcast of  Steven A. Smith of ESPN. The music was outstanding! Local radio icon Jeff Fox played some awesome hits and grooves!

I would love to give a special thanks to some awesome fellow creatives I got the chance to meet:

Divanism (clothing and cell phone accecssories)

New Breed Life Arts (martial arts)
Jamaican  Mango and Lime  (hair products)
Nicholasbrooklyn (jewlery and accessories)
Overall, I had a wonderful time and Harlem Week was well worth it!! See ya next year!
