West Indian Day Parade

Homie called me up a few weeks ago and said, “Hey, have you ever been to Brooklyn for Carnival?” I was like, “Nope.” Of course, I checked that it was ok with my family, but I said yes!

What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas

Las Vegas When I was young, I assumed Vegas was only for old men who liked to gamble. Boy, was I wrong. So far, I’ve been twice and both times I had a blast. And I still haven’t done everything that I want to do yet. Flights aren’t crazy expensive, so I’ll be back. MyContinue reading “What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas”
