Yes, KYSS is where it’s at. After the shows we all headed over to KYSS to drink and dance the night away – but before that, R, JanJay and I ate at Nihon, first thing’s first!

Apple picking. Yes, this is the season for it! Fall is in the air, the leaves are changing colors, the air is brisk, and it’s about time we get to sip on some hot apple cider and munch on apple pies!!!
Louise, Ina, Cass, Omar, Willis the dog and I hopped in a car and headed out to Wright’s Apple Farm in Gardiner, NY (dog friendly!) to get are fill of apples. Not only do they have an orchard, but their little market gave us a taste of what to expect – we tested out a few of the apples they were growing, one of which was the “Honey Crisp” – we searched high and low for these, only to find out they were all gone =(
They also fry apple cider donuts – hot to serve – along with homemade pies from apple to pumpkin to blueberry – nom nom nom!
We ate a few donuts and for $10, got our bags to start filling with apples! I highly recommend this apple orchard – very friendly and HUGE! You can even picnic there!
More photos to come!

Looks like the crew is back together to celebrate a relaunch of Recon! Supporting sports, arts, and culture my homies Stash, Futura, and their boy Wane got together to produce this piece. It’s been too long boys!
PS – all you instagrammers! Follow Josh @mr_stash =)
A bunch of us came together again to bid a “semi” fare-well to Sarah who was heading back to PI (leaving Banj and Kaya behind in NYC – yeaaaa!) for some work. No worries though, they’ll be back again next month HAHAHAHA!
We played Hooky at Hotel Chantelle again, but this time, the weather didn’t play nice. The dark clouds opened their gates of thunder and lightening, showering the covered rooftop with so much water that we all had to go downstairs as the covering could not keep out a mini-flood. We spent a bit more time drinking until we gave in to our temptation to go back for round 2 at Congee Village!
Oh! I forgot to mention, my old friend Mondee came through and hung out with us too! After devouring our food, we all decided to check out Santos, we were there a bit early (go figure hahaha) but once in, Stretch Armstrong got the party going. The rest of the crew came through too – weeee! Good times good times!
Sarah see you sooooooon! Banj, see you even sooner =)
Last weekend the man and I went to Williamsburg to celebrate the engagement and marriage of two of our lovely friends/couples. Luckily, both parties (which started at the same time) were within walking distance from each other =)
We first passed by our friends’ Agnes (to me, “Ate White Ags” lol) and Nick’s post-wedding soiree at My Moon. The place was so cute! It had a lovely patio area with canopies set up and the inside was stunning as well – with lovely rustic iron designs. The food, Mediterranean, was deeeelish.
Oh! I also caught up with my cousin and old friends – ever since we moved out of Bushwick, I hardly see them anymore! *sniff sniff
After dinner, John and I headed over to the next party to celebrate our good friends’ Rika and Pat engagement. We went to East River Bar. There were candies, cake, sweets galore! Pat was on the grill and we were surrounded by more friends – some I haven’t seen in a long time =)
Oh yea, there was a pinata filled with candies (which Sean ate most, scraping them off the floor lmao) and mini vodka shots.
There was also an awesome bike vending machine we walked by. Literally has anything a biker needs to repair or ride safe on a bike! From helmets, to chain locks, to bike chains, to tire repair tools, air canisters, bike lights, you name it! Pretty awesome.
