My LA GRAMMYs Adventure – Me Meeting Malcolm


Fun during a Pre-Grammy party. I spotted Malcolm- Jamal Warner. He was trying to get through the red carpet, and was very kind getting through each reporter. Even one guy who thought to capture a full 20 minutes on a 2 minute interview.

He finally made it through the amateur reporter gauntlet, into the waiting throng of ladies trying to snap a selfie of the former Cosby kid, who is all grown up and keeping in the game with various projects. Good to finally meet him in person and grab a quick pic. Albeit way after the 20 women and their selfies.

Way to stay gracious Malcolm…

Morning Run Beauty in Berkeley 😄


Morning Run just outside of the Berkeley Marina. Waiting for the sunrise. Sitting on a park bench, resting at Cesar E. Chavez Park.

I can feel the warmth of the sunrise…

Trying to enjoy the simple things in life.

My LA GRAMMYs Adventure – Small SUR Seats


Saturday Night during GRAMMYs weekend was real cool, but kinda chill. I heard that Sean Kingston’s party got shut down…by the Fire Marshall. Who forgets a liquor permit at a Pre-GRAMMYs in Los Angeles? Anyways, me and the crew decide to grab some grub. Although at the time I had NO idea what SUR Restaurant was, i knew 2 things: I heard it had good food, and we were hungry.

Going into SUR, the place was SO posh, and packed. Happy Hour was crazy! But we were able to grab a couple of Happy Hour dishes at the bar, and converse with a real nice couple from Malibu. I saw important people and other people pretending they were important (hey, this is LA).

We did get a little lounge table and sat down, then I realized I was sitting in the smallest chair EVER! Cute chairs, went great with the decor, but I had that feeling I was back at Kindergarten and raising my hand to ask for a graham cracker.

Good food, good people! The staff was awesome. Then I found out that SUR and the PUMP lounge around the corner were featured on the BRAVO TV show “Vanderpump Rules.” No wonder it was packed. When the server saw me experience my epiphany, she arranged to show us around.

My SUR advice: get a reservation…if you can!
