Now everyone who knows me for the most part knows that I dont really watch sports because it doesnt necessarily hold my intrest. However last nights game was one of the best games I have ever seen. With 6:20 remaining in Game 2 of the NBA Finals in Miami, the Dallas Mavericks trailed the Miami Heat 88-73 and looked certain to face a 2-0 gap heading into their three home games in the series. The Heat just looked like quicker, faster, and more engaged team, particularly Dwyane Wade, who finished with 36 points. Read More »

The event hosted by the one and only Lifestyle Specialist Kenny Burns brought out Atlanta’s Finest Jovita Moore, Sheree Whitfield, Rasheeda, Shanti Davis, Young Joc, and Deveyne Stevens to name a few. Three signature summer drinks were introduced at tonights event The St. Topez, Frenchy, and The Mogul.
Miguel performed several songs from his debut album All I Want Is You. His current release Sure Thing is heating up the A more than the temperature. “You can bet that never gotta sweat that” was the chorus line Miguel had the whole crowd chanting. Kenny Burns referred to Miguel as the “Prince” of our generation and after watch Miguel live he’s right own track. From his vocals to his style, minus the purple one piece with the butt out and the heals. It’s safe to say musically that we have a lot to look forward to from Miguel.
