The Grand Opening of East Cleveland’s premiere wine and cigar bar Andreas Dekar & T.D. Interview

I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening of Andreas and his wife Tiffany’s new wine bar- Andreas Dekar & T.D. located at 15905 Euclid Avenue, East Cleveland Ohio, 44112. Needless to say it was a wonderful experience. The community came together and supported a classy event.

Andreas is one of East Cleveland’s own; and he and his wife decided to give back by opening a business. The wine and cigar bar has the space to showcase talent and a live band, it has an area where you can purchase cigars, a place where video games can be played on a large screen, a kitchen and of course a fully operational bar. The atmosphere is calm and laid back with the interior being versatile for the men and women that are being catered to.

 

I had the pleasure of interviewing Andreas wife Tiffany, she was busy hosting so I only asked the most relevant question in my opinion:

Q: What made you invest in East Cleveland?

A: “Dre is from East Cleveland, this is home and this is where he wanted to put everything back into to.” Being spiritual she quotes “to whom much is given to whom is much required.”

She feels now is the best time to invest because of the rapidly changing landscape of the city.

Andreas and Tiffany have their own brand of wine which you can purchase here: www.andreasdekarwines.com and you can find them on Instagram @dre_oh10 

 

I got a chance to taste the Apricot Moscato, (one of my classmates chose it because I don’t like Moscato) however, it was surprisingly delicious, light and flavorful.

HRS. OF OPERATION: 11 a.m. – 11 p.m.

Dress like a lady: MONOTONE PINK- Pink Lemonade- #issalook

When life throws you  lemons.. make pink lemonade.

I love a well put together monotone look; I decided to go light yesterday, light pink. I felt the need to be colorful because lately I’ve been feeling encouraged and uplifted. What better color to compliment the mood than pink?

Monotone done correctly. I love the results. (NO FILTERS)

Interview with East Cleveland’s own; Ohio lawyer and HBCU Graduate.

hbcu1I was inspired to reach out to one of East Cleveland’s own lawyers and childhood friend, the reason being is because I was watching a special regarding the impact of HBCU’s which is an (acronym for Historically Black College’s and University’s) that really moved me, because attending an HBCU is not a path I had chosen, however, although there is no major difference academically when it comes to HBCU’s and majority attended colleges, after reading this perhaps it may move YOU to consider enrollment for refinement.

The special touched me because even though we live a racially charged society, the Black students interviewed state that attending an HBCU was a sort of refuge from the “outside world” and that versus a conventionally diverse college, they felt safer with expression. (HBCU’s house at least 87% Black attendees)

The interview is very insightful, I invite you to read along:

Q1: At what age did you decide to pursue law?

A: “Every since middle school, during the high school experience I had a criminal studies course, and that’s what substantiated my love for law.”

Q2: You got accepted to Ivy League colleges. What made you choose an HBCU for undergrad?

A: “I always knew I wanted to attend an HBCU.” She states she watched television programs such as A Different World and was entralled with the thought of attendance.

Most importantly she states that she did her research about how HBCU’s came into existence and that played a major, influential role in her final decision.

Q3: What lessons did you learn in at your HBCU that you carried into the real world?

A: She states that not only was it phenomenal, but also, empowering through knowlege and fun! Not only that but she recieved support, and enrichment.

“It molds a more strategic mind by teaching your own history which in turn builds confidence.”

It was a pleasure doing this interview.. thank you!

Are 3somes worth the hype? Teyana Taylor and Boosie Bad clap back.

teyana taylor

Recently with the blessing of Teyana Taylor and BoosieBad.. it has come to fruition that they enjoy the occasional romp in the sack with other people. Teyana discussed her business all over interviews while supposedly promoting her music, but instead of sticking to the music she chose to focus on her sexual escapades. It seems as though Teyana and Iman Shumpert enjoy threesomes with random strangers from anywhere on earth and Boosie, with his friend.

Now don’t get me wrong I’m not an insecure woman, but at the same time I’m not naïve enough to think that other people don’t find my spouse attractive,

I would be a fool to assume that since I think I am all that and a bag of chips that during a threesome or extramarital activities that either one may catch feelings for the other that is not their spouse. In short, I ain’t on it and don’t think that people should discuss what goes on in their personal boudoir or they risk opening themselves up to strangers on the internet GEESH don’t they have a child at home?

IN SHORT TEYANA, THE CLAPBACK WAS LAME, THE FAN WAS RIGHT!

P.S. No internet relationship is #goals..focus on your own.

How do you feel?

Ohio’s own Lebron James is going to Cali and I’m not angry

I don’t know where these out of town news outlets are getting their information about the exit of Lebron James and that Ohioans are angry. We’re not. In fact, everyone that I’ve spoken with is nothing short of supportive. We wish the best for him. He paid his dues in Ohio, even came back to do it. He owes us nothing because he’s already given us so much; notoriety, back to back finals and a championship, he was even an encouragement to the Cleveland baseball team. So, we’re not angry, he even has the
Cavs band-wagoner’s cheering for him.

We wish you the best Lebron and thank you for the memories. Although you will reside in California, you will always belong to Ohio.

Why the Terry Crews #metoo conversation is so important

We’ve all seen the questions and whispers that occur when a woman waits “too long” to report her sexual assault.

  1. Why didn’t she report it sooner?
  2. She’s just trying to make him look bad.
  3. Why didn’t she tell someone in her family?

I really could go on and on. Instead of concern for the victim the barrage which made it difficult to report the crime in the first place continues. (This post is not pertinent to people that lie)

The conversation is important because Terry Crews  (we know him from shows such as ” Everybody Hates Chris” or recently the Old Spice commercials ) is a tall, muscular man that seemingly wouldn’t come off as the victim. He’s in fact the anti victim to most people. Terry Crews has testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill on Tuesday regarding the “Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights.”

His testimony is important, powerful and moving. He speaks on the power struggle of not only being African American, but being in a position of being a subordinate to a powerful person, in this case a supervisor, but in many cases the perpetrator may be an older family member or, even someone of the physically stronger sex.

It’s also important because Terry Crews is a man! Yes, a man who felt powerless in at the hand of another man that felt he had ownership over Terry Crew’s body.

Close your eyes and imagine how a woman may feel.

TOM FORD Vegas is like a walk in closet

                                            I don’t pop molly I rock Tom Ford

                                           Tom Ford is one of my favorite designers

If you haven’t had the chance to visit the Tom Ford store on the Vegas strip in Nevada, it should definitely be on your to-do list. The store is well put together on the outside and is quite the experience on the inside.

The store is like a tunnel with three layers. As you walk into the store you enter the men’s section, which I have to be honest I didn’t look twice at because I was so enamored with the way that the inside was built. The mid portion of the store is reserved for the variety of scents that Tom Ford has to offer, and finally the last layer, the back is where the women’s clothing is housed.

The store is eloquent, like the walk in closet that you’ve always wanted. The staff is very friendly and attentive (not in an intrusive way) and there is a bigger selection of clothing then what you may see online.

We are not allowed to film inside of the store, but before I was informed of this I got a small snippet on video that you can view here.
