Chrissy and the St. Claire

Tuesday, March 31, 2009
On Sunday March 29th, I had the pleasure of planning an event sponsored by Souls of My Sisters Books/Kensington Publishing which honored author and architect, Carole St. Claire Richards. Carole is a dynamic African-American female architect and real-estate developer whose journey is printed in the soon-to-be released "Tears for Triumph: Learn, Live and Thrive" (September 2009).

The event was well attended and the invite-only guest list included:

  • Reverend Dr. Calvin O. Butts, III, Pastor of the nationally renowned Abyssinian Baptist Church in the City of New York, and President of SUNY College at Old Westbury (pictured with Carole).

  • LadyBird Strickland, African-American artist best known for a long line of works documenting African American culture beginning in the 1940s.

  • Reverend Al Sharpton-minister, political and civil rights/social justice activist, and radio talk show host (pictured with Ladybird Strickland; Carole and husband, Skip).
  • Aliyyah Baylor, cake decorator and owner of Harlem's deliciously infamous bakery Make My Cake whose clients include the New York Knicks (pictured with Souls of My Sisters authors/editors Candace Sandy & Dawn Marie Daniels).

Chrissy and the Carib

Tuesday, March 17, 2009

Attention!! I'm excited to report that starting tomorrow 3/18, we will be featuring a Caribbean menu and Shandys will be on sale at the bar during my weekly afterwork - "We Go Hard Wednesdays" @ 507 Bar & Grill.

Last week turned into a real carnival fete (meaning party for those of non-west indian decent lol) and it is only fitting that we cater to the real FOBs (fresh-of-the-boat) and wannabe yardies (anyone from Flatbush *smile*) by offering items that truly make 507 feel like the bar where everybody knows your name (Hey gyal/boi).

So I hope to see ya out again this week as the weather should be real nice tonight. For those who missed out, we welcome ya to join us for great music by DJs Blu Boi and Biggs, hosted by Slim and yours truly. And don't worry, all immigration officers will be checked at the door- Ha!

So I was on facebook hitting up some dear old friends I'd like to see at my afterwork this week and realized that my oldest and dearest ones were all Schuyler heads. I'm usually not in town when our beloved Shanay hosts her impromptu reunion bar-b-ques so I miss out on seeing my middle school peoples

So tomorrow I've decided to invite all you Schuyler heads to come thru after 6pm from your daily grinds and chop it up like we used to :) I'll even name a drink after about the Schuyler-tini? Yeah I like the sound of that!

Fellow Schuyler alum, Jason Clinton, is now the infamous DJ Blu (aka BluBoi aka my Bajan Turntable Superhero) and we just might get him to spin some of that old school Mary J. mixed with a little Jagged Edge! Hey "memories don't live like people do..."

Chrissy and the Mackerel

Monday, March 9, 2009
The premier of ChrissyandtheCity presents...We Go Hard Wednesdays @ 507 Bar&Grill on 3/4/09 totally exceeded my expectations! The crowd was definitely grown & sexy! JetBlu played all the latest tunes from Reggae to Hip-Hop to R&B and then shut it down with a wicked Soca set around midnight! The Bajan in me really let loose when DJs Biggs and BluBoi played one of the hottest singles "Go Stabbi"...let's just say what happens at 507 stays at 507!

I was definitely delighted when reggae artist Major Mackerel, his manager Jerry, and Vincent of King Crown Radio graced us with their presence after special invitation by Slim of JetBlu Music Group.

Thank you to all who supported our first event last week! I can't wait for this Wednesday as we have a few surprises in store! For info on our Birthday packages email
