Haring Art

It's always great to add new pieces of art to the collection.

Zavino Wino Bar

This past weekend was my first weekend off to enjoy life in about a month so it was a great opportunity to get out the house, check out the flea markets, and of course enjoy great food.  Stopped by Zavino Wine Bar to check out what was on the menu and decided to order up a few things.  The pork stuffed ravioli, grilled shrimp with white beans and a nice cheese, olive and meat plate with great hams, prosciutto and bread.  It was definitely nice to sit out doors people watching while snacking and enjoying lunch.

Sunday Burger Quest

Yesterday while in NYC The Elroy Jenkins and myself stopped by Corner Bistro to grab a burger and a few beers.  This was my first time eating there but have heard plenty of good things about it.  Most people know that I'm on my burger quest to have the best beef on a bun in not only all 50 states but across the globe.  The Corner Bistro served up one of the best burgers that I've had in a long time! It's a burger, bacon, lettuce, tomato and cheese served on a plastic plate, that's all! No gourmet fixings or extras to cover up the true taste of the beef.  The beef quality was on point and prepared medium well to my satisfaction.

While there enjoy a few beers along with our burgers, the bartender comes out of the back with a bag of records which naturally sparked our curiosity and conversation.  After a little questioning what was in the bag, he told us that it was a few records that he loaned a friend which contained samples used by Jay Z, Dilla, Doom, DJ Premier and other artists and producers.  Only in New York does this happen!

Liquid Swords on The Chopping Block!

Man, how many more ways can Get On Down guillotine your neck until you meet your death!?  These guys release yet another amazing jewel which is limited to 100.  This time it's a really dope "Battle Scene" 18 x 18 wood block print featuring the artwork from the GZA's Liquid Swords album.  As you can see from the video below, this is a quality piece of art that's perfect for any true fan of GZA and the Wu.

 In addition to this piece, they've also released the instrumental LP to GZA's Liquid Swords pressed on double vinyl and custom silk screened dust jackets. Bong!
