Marvin made it in last night and we have tons and tons of photos from his 40 hour Megabus trip!! During this week, we will be creating some new artwork using those photos and I’m kind of excited!!
For the business owners out there, if you have a Dallas business that you’d like us to stop into, please let us know!
Our plan today is to go to the last day of the State Fair of TX!
(You’ll be missed Big Tex!)
My Marvin is on his way to Dallas!!!! He’s arriving via Megabus! You know R&M Social had to try out the Wi-Fi and outlets for the trip!!!
He was last seen in Virginia!!! You can follow his tweets @harlemsmover to keep up with his travels!!! He will get here around tomorrow at 6pm!!!
Don’t you just LOVE THIS MAN?!
Here is a review of what should be a tasty treat from Google+ Roshon Martin or Roe’s Catering Service in NYC. Roshon has one of the larger followings on G+ and I was glad to come across him! Busy as I was this summer, Roshon and I just couldn’t get our timing together to get this grub on! A brother is always showcasing his awesome looking dishes so you know I had to get a taste!
So we got our act together and decided to meet in Harlem on the day of the Afro- American Day parade, which in itself was a challenge because of the traffic and no parking!
Roshon had let me know the meal he had in mind for me to sample: oxtails, beans and rice, and cabbage. I get this awesome looking plate which is nice and heavy and looked amazing! Warming this plate up in the microwave, I could smell the oxtails! Man oh man! This is going to be good! As I take my first taste the well- cooked cabbage with small cuts of potatoes, I am reminded of my grandmother.
The oxtails were well done and had a wonderful clean taste which is good. I tasted the meat instead of a lot of seasonings. I was looking forward to a different twist to this traditional west Indian meal, maybe a thicker base or gravy, but all in all, a good eat and combination with the cabbage.
The last part of this meal wasn’t the usual way I would have expected beans and rice. I’ve always been used to peas and rice combos even with other ethnic cooked meals, but Roshon pulled it off without the dreaded sticky or dry rice and the beans were actually done very well! Great work Roshon.
If I had been paying for this meal, I can honestly say I would have been satisfied with the dinner itself and the overall effort put into it. I loved the meal and thank you Roshon!
Keep up the good work!
Well, it’s October….the year is almost over and in February R&M Social will have been around for 12 months! I’m thankful for everyone who has supported us and we love our clients to death!!
In a few days, Marvin will be arriving in Dallas for the 2nd time this year and I am really excited! As most of you know, R&M Social was born from Marvin and my relationship. We are very excited to see where our 2nd year takes us!
If you are a local business and you’d like for Marvin and I to stop by your place of business and tell Twitter all about you, just drop us a line. He will be here for about a week and we would love to check you out!!
One thing we definitely have on the agenda is the State Fair of Texas!! He has never been and I haven’t been in maybe 3 years, so we are both really looking forward to it!!
