We attended the season finale of the Sweet Spot Festival at Pier I on 70th st. The music was pumpin’, folks were dancin’ and Kevin Hedge ended the night pumpin’ the the beats and rockin’ the house.

This event epitomizes why we live and love New York City.  There is no place like it.  Period.

We look forward to next Summer’s events including those taking place in Harlem.

Memories…

On our way.

Rockin’ the house.

Up close and personal – with our friend CC who did a great job with the event and who is involved with the very important Black Girls Rock.
