Forever 100

YG’s F*** Donald Trump Tour has made its way to NYC and he decided to have a pop-up hosted by Community 54.  I was able to make it conveniently after work to check it out thanks to my shared lyft ride for $4.75 :-). Upon entering, solid white hats embroidered with 4 Hunnid in red and solid red hats stamped with ‘Make America 400 Again’ lined the wall; the latter item was quite genius and goes great with the overall theme of the concert.  Kudos to YG and team for that one!  Tour shirts with a very fitting picture of YG and others, Kamaiyah being one, with all tour dates printed on the back, camo hoodies with 4 Hunnid printed in red and the solid white hoodie ‘Forever 100’ with the westside symbol were all available for purchase too.

Hoodies were $60, tees were $32 as well as the hats with the exception of the brown 4 Hunnid hat which was being sold for $38. Very reasonably priced merch if I do say so myself.  I decided to grab the camo hoodie.  I’m semi obsessed with camo for some strange reason and it just pairs nicely with a lot of things.  So many ways to rock it so be on the lookout for that later on the site.  I also grabbed the sticker pack which included 3 stickers for $5. Another good deal.  Hopefully this pop up will make it to other areas.  Take a look at pics I was able to capture below and please help make America 400 again.

Dinner before Broadway

The dining experience at The Capital Grille is like no other. From the time my party was greeted at the door until the flutes filled with champagne were passed, I knew it was going to be a memorable experience.   Some of my family came to visit me in NYC and I decided to give this place a try for dinner before we ventured off to see ‘The Color Purple’.

Luckily it was three of us and we all wanted to have different entrees.  Well, lucky for me so I could do taste tests of the other options.  My aunt went with the lamb chops which was a great choice;  cooked to perfection and the restaurant gives a nice portion.  I went with the filet mignon of course, being a huge steak lover.  The filet practically melted in my mouth; the cut, seasoning and taste could not of been more perfect.  My cousin went with the restaurant’s special that they were offering at the time.  I cannot recall the type of fish but it was seared and topped with a homemade salsa consisting of peppers, fresh cilantro and avocado.  All three were absolutely amazing. As for the sides, sautéed spinach and mashed potatoes were our picks for the evening.  These both complimented everyone’s dish well.  I love restaurants with shareable sides.  This makes it easier for small groups and gives everyone a chance to try different things.

After having an appetizer, bread, salad and a full entree, dessert for me was out of the question.  To my surprise, our waiter had been paying very close attention and overheard I was soon to be married.  After our entrees were cleared from the table, he brought out champagne filled flutes and a cute little dessert.  Not only had the service been impeccable for our dinner reservation, but for the waiter to make it that much more memorable and special meant a lot to me.  We all left very pleased with an unforgettable NYC dining experience.  I cannot say enough about The Capital Grille in terms of the many things I was happy about.  Great choice for dinner with an amazing ambiance and superb staff.  I will definitely be back!
