A Few More Stops from Los Angeles

By |2019-06-27T06:15:49-05:00June 27th, 2019|Categories: Traveling Foodie|

The Los Angeles recap continues!  There were a few more spots I visited that you should definitely include on your next weekend trip to Los Angeles. The Broad Visiting a museum has quickly become one of my favorite things to do when I travel.  This go around, my friend recommended that we visit the Broad, a museum focused on pop culture that is typically free! You can reserve a time ahead of time online.  To avoid the lines, we opted to pay for the special exhibition "Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963-1983."  As you [...]

Foodie Travels: Los Angeles Day 3

By |2018-02-10T21:04:02-06:00February 17th, 2016|Categories: Traveling Foodie|Tags: , , |

By day three in Los Angeles, my body did not know what way was up! We slept most of the day away, *sighs* I guess I only can be an efficient traveler for one day at a time. I am not a big fan of Fast Food anymore, because that seems to be the thing to say nowadays.  While in a pinch and becoming very hangry, I made a trip to Pollo Loco for food to feed the troops!  Once I walked in and saw the chickens grilling and smelling all kind of delicious,  I knew I made a good food [...]

Foodie Travels: Los Angeles Day TWO

By |2018-02-10T20:33:55-06:00February 10th, 2016|Categories: Traveling Foodie|Tags: , , |

Okay I am back to recapping my fabulous trip to Los Angeles. I am having to break it up by days, because I was greedy and ate way too much during that trip to put it in one post.  On day two, my body's natural central time body clock clicked in and I was up and out before 9am.  The early tourists wins was my motto!!! Breakfast at Roscoe's My sister was on team eager beaver tourist as well. Our first stop that morning was Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles.  THE creator of the unique combo! This is a tourist hot [...]

Foodie Travels: Los Angeles Part One

By |2018-02-10T21:05:07-06:00February 7th, 2016|Categories: Traveling Foodie|Tags: , , |

As a child I saw a movie about a disastrous earthquake in LA and swore that I would never step foot in California. Ridiculous, I know.  Then after experiencing an earthquake in Missouri AND one in the DC area, I finally got over my fears and decided a trip to Cali needed to happen sooner than later.  Once my cousin made the bold move from Texas to Los Angeles, my sister, a few cousins, friends and I decided that a trip was needed! So just one week after my trip to Nashville, I was on a plane again, this time to [...]

Hoorae takes DC

By |2022-04-02T14:45:01-05:00April 2nd, 2022|Categories: Traveling Foodie|

Made a trip to one of my favorite cities, Washington DC, for an event created by Issa Rae's production company Hoorae.  Hosted at the Kennedy Center, the event centered around connecting with other creators.  Here is a brief recap of what we ate and saw during Hoorae Takes DC. The Cherry Blossoms While we were there for the Hoorae event, the organizers just happened to pick a weekend that fell during cherry blossom season. Despite all of my visits to DC, I had never caught the cherry blossoms in full bloom which apparently lasts about two weeks.  It felt odd [...]

Blackity Black Events for 2022

By |2022-05-30T23:09:42-05:00December 23rd, 2021|Categories: Traveling Foodie|

Listen, I will travel to just about anywhere for any type of event if it has good food, people and fun activities.   But, events that cater to black folks hold a special place in my heart and will shoot right to the top of my “must visit” list.  After visiting events like Essence Festival several times, the inaugural Family Reunion or a good ole HBCU football classic, I started thinking about what are the quintessential black events.  I polled my audience and did some googling as well.  Here are some of the events I came up i.e. Blackity Black [...]

10 Takeaways from the Family Reunion at the Salamander Resort

By |2021-08-30T21:43:36-05:00August 30th, 2021|Categories: Events, Traveling Foodie|

Last weekend I had the privilege of attending the inaugural Family Reunion at the Salamander Resort.   Hosted by Sheila Johnson and Chef Kwame Onwuachi the event aimed to celebrate the black culinary and hospitality world while taking the form of a traditional black folks family reunion.  With chefs from all over the world, panels of experts and a great crowd of "cousins" this may be one of the best events I have ever attended as a food blogger.  As you can imagine, I have lots of thoughts to share in this recap so lets get in to the 10 Takeaways [...]

ChopnBlok

What a nice segue from my last post about getting invited to blogger events!  A few weeks ago, I attended a pop up event at Flora Culture for ChopnBlok.   I had the privilege of being a friend's plus one (one of my tips) AND Houston Insider partnered to host the event (a second tip).   Honestly, I did not care HOW I got in the building.  I was just glad to be present for the ChopnBlok experience! The Event ChopnBlok hosts dining experiences which aim to expose the Houston community to Western African cuisine and culture.  With "fusion" being the hottest [...]

2019 Travel Recap

By |2019-12-30T15:56:44-06:00December 30th, 2019|Categories: Traveling Foodie|

The week after Christmas brings about time for reflection.  We start to think about what the year entailed and what we want to manifest for 2020.   This time last year, I was manifesting being intentional in all aspects of my life.  While there are still some areas of my life that could use a little more intention... one area that was not lacking was travel.  I knew I wanted to travel more in 2019 and travel I did.  Some of these places I recapped on my blog, others I just shared on my social media.  I typically write more for [...]

Getaway Dallas

By |2019-12-30T12:48:12-06:00December 30th, 2019|Categories: Traveling Foodie|

*My stay at the Getaway Dallas was covered by Getaway, but the opinions are my own*  I am back from my last trip of 2019! If you have been following along all year you know I've been on quite a few.  Check out the recaps here.   This one was totally different than the others though, it involved a road trip to the middle of nowhere and a stay in a small cabin.   Can I just say that I do NOT do the outdoors, camping or ruffing it.  It is not my ministry!  I stepped outside of my box and decided [...]
