A Weekend in the City

June 10th, 2008 by

Jason and Christina

Sometimes the big apple beckons, and some of the staffers at The Retrospective answer the call. Thursday, found Jason, Alicia and I all in NYC taking in the temperate weather and of course all the sights and sounds. We all met up late Thursday evening at Blue Ginger for some delicious sushi. The restaurant has some great traditional looking Japanese Edo period paintings on the wall, especially in the bathroom. Unfortunately for us, we got served by the one waiter from hell; and there’s not enough blog space to go into that ordeal. After the grub we headed to the lower west side to meet up with photographer, blogger, and documentarian Kareem Black.

We’re in the process of working on a project for The Retrospective in the coming weeks with Kareem that is currently a bit hush hush, so stay tuned. We met up with him at Tailor, a cool hip joint on Broome St. that was hosting a birthday celebration for Raquel; who is a good friend and stylist of Kareem. All of the party goers, friends and family alike were amazingly nice and the venue was great. It was wonderful to get to hang out with not only Kareem, but also all of his and Raquel’s friends who are accomplished, young, and smart, individuals getting their hustle up in New York City. Unfortunately, because I have terrible directions, Alicia and I were unable to meet up with Larry (My Global Hustle), and our man Heron Preston was a bit under the weather, but we will definitely be making more stops in the city this summer so stay tuned!
