Fitzgerald’s Problematic Email

*Puts lawyer hat on.*  Y'all, another Houston spot has been accused of racism, but get this the discriminatory comments are in writing!  Here is the back story.   Today, a Houston based producer named Garrett Brown aka TrakkSounds (who happens to be white) reached out to local music venue Fitzgerald's requesting information on booking two "billboard charting hip hop artists" at their venue.  He received the below email in response. *music stops, mouth hits the floor*  You'd think I would be used to instances of overt racism, but each time my mouth hits the floor and I scream YOU CANT [...]

To Split the Check or Not?

So I am an avid twitter user, logging in numerous times a day.  One of the draws for me is the constant conversations about current events, politics, reality tv and a host of other things.  Twitter is often times a focus group of sorts if you want to get a variety of opinions.  I have seen people debate whether a $200 date is acceptable or the best way to approach a woman you are interested in.  Trust me, these debates are reoccurring and hilarious.  A recent debate got me thinking and I decided that this topic deserves a blog post.

I know it's been over a month since I returned from Paris, but I have more to say!! Spend about a week in foreign countries and you will come home with SO many thoughts.  In this case, all of my thoughts did not fit in my three previous posts so I had to make a whole new posts with my random musings from this trip.  I threw in a few travel tips too :).  Enjoy! Rude? One common thing I heard about Parisians is that they are RUDE.  I did not find that to be true!  While they were not [...]

Potluck Time: Banana Trifle

I love to start a post with a somewhat relevant story, so here it goes!  When I graduated law school I entered into the suckiest legal market in recent history.  With little experience I was relegated to the document review world or as I called it, the land of the unwanted attorney.  Basically, the work was super boring and simple enough that a trained monkey could do it.  Then the jobs were temporary with no benefits.  When I tell you it was THE worst.  As you can imagine, we tried to make the best of it.  On one project, everyone [...]

My Served Meals

Can I talk about black girl magic a little before I get into this post? It is somewhat relevant here I promise.  Today our nation woke up to a new President elect.  It shakes me to my core to think President Barack Obama will be followed by a candidate who ran on fear and bigotry.  I'll save you my legal and historic rant on that for another time and venue.  Despite all that I believe went wrong with this election, when I scanned the exit poll returns  I was SO proud to see how black women voted.  We are not [...]

Thanksgiving at Fleming’s

Has anyone else noticed the extreme rush to get to Christmas this year? I saw full out Christmas decorations before Halloween!  It such a pity too because Thanksgiving is a great holiday especially for the foodies!  The last few years my mother has conned me into cooking Thanksgiving dinner for the rest of the family.  That process takes a lot out of you! For those looking for additional options that do not involve slaving away in the kitchen, Flemings Steakhouse will have all of their locations open on Thanksgiving Day offering a four course meal.  Plus, all the wine will [...]
