Golden Krust "Customer Appreciation Day"

Pitkin Ave in Brownsville Brooklyn was filled with the sounds of West Indian Music and LIVE airing from irie jam radio. 

As Golden Krust celebrated "Customer Appreciation Day" and what better way to do, then with the sound of the music. 

DJ Roy graced us with the sound of music and his televising Brownsville LIVE on the radio station. Going step by step on what he was seeing in the streets of Pitkin Ave and reminiscing on when he would come to Pitkin with his mom.

 Among him was radio personality Felisha who was shock to see the girls of Kentucky Fried Chicken came and dance for ticket for the Beanie Man Concert. I believe not only them was shock, we was also shock. But made great entertainment. Kudos to the girls of Kentucky Fried Chicken on Pitkin. They won those tickets.

They were both make great for entertainment. 

CEO and Owner of Golden Krust, Lowell Hawthorne was there introducing himself and offering what best they are known for, their Beef Patties, and by the way Ox-tail is my favorite. Everyone came, ate and enjoyed the live entertainment.

Home made juice was there giving out what i believe some of the best juice, Carrot Juice among others, but carrot is one of my all time juice. The only time I had had carrot juice was in Florida and never manage to find no other, until i tasted their juice, Great tasting. 

CEO of irie jam radio Anthony Turner was also present among Oxtail, Anthony Turner, Irwin Clarke Sn

Brownsville is where I call home. We live in this rough life on these neck of the woods but, it's home to me and many others.

We do have a lot going on over here, but unfortunate you get to see the negative part of Brownsville in the news.  There's a high percentage of violence. We are also a community, that despite what you see or hear this is home to us and we going to get it right. 

Like in the words of Maya Angelou, You might write us down in history with your bitter twisted lies, you may trod us in the very dirt but still like dust We'll Rise.

Thank you CEO Lowell Hawthorne of Golden Krust for appreciating us and bringing irie jam radio and by the way, one if the best know Caribbean radio station to Brownsville.

What to expect at Mo's on a Friday Night

I have always love Mo's Fort Greene,  the only opportunities I have had to go to Mo's was for Mo's Sunday Comic, which I love by the way. 

The atmosphere, vibe,  the people has made it a comfortable and relaxing environment  to be in.

Never had the privilege of attending on a Friday or Saturday night. Well,  I happen to go on a Friday night with a good friend after attending an event. 

We was suppose stay for only an hour. We end up staying for 4 hours. That same great atmosphere I got on a Sunday night, turned out to be a great Friday night. 

The place was crowded,   it doesn't take much to fill up Mo's. This place is small,  but enough room to dance to the music of DJ Hard Hitting Harry.  He just happen to play the right kind of music over and over again.  DJ Hard Hitting Harry had everyone on their feat grooving and dancing to his Music. 

We was all the way to the back of the place,  3 steps and you was up there.  That back part gives a feeling of such a comfortable lounge setting,  just sitting and  conversating with the people next to you.  That is how cool it felt.

The waitress was as sweet as i can remember on a Sunday night for Mo's Sunday Comic. But, to  my surprise, when DJ Hard Hitting Harry was playing  his music , I though my ears was deceiving me.  As I turned around, there he was,  a trumpet player,  playing to the music of DJ hard Hitting.

I was just memorized,  the sound that was coming out that trumpet.  I had to stop what I was doing and take pictures of this moment. 

DJ Hard Hitting Harry,  you got it going on.  You was on top of your music.  Mr Trumpet player is Eleazar Shafar,  I love the sound that you made come out that trumpet,  amazing!

Now I can honestly say  Mo's is the place to be on a Friday Night.   Great Music, Great Crowd and the drinks was great and cheap, I believe. 

DJ Hard Hitting Harry and Eleazar Shafar belongs to Earth Man Experience, which I was amazed to find out, they also play at Brooklyn Academy of Brooklyn (BAM). Not surprise. Beautiful work guys.

So head out to Mo's on a Friday night,  you'll love it.
