Chaka-Chaka-Chakaras On

Yesterday was yet another opportunity for Bahareh and i to get our Grown-Asses On. We grabbed Steph and headed to Chakaras' birthday celebration....and then we REALLY celebrated.

See, sport coats conceal large flasks best...

POW! Chrome Shadow strikes again!

Lee [ Cape Town/South Africa ]
Erica [ Chicago/USA ]
Bahareh [ Norway/Iran ]
Jon [ Chicago/USA ]
Jelsen [ NY & FL/Haiti ]
Christina [ Atlanta/USA ]
Brent [ Chicago/USA ]
Opposing views? Hell yes! Some prefer a spicier hummus.

Raphael Saadiq

This kid has so much SOUL it's almost overwhelming. Oakland's own Raphael Saadiq threw an amazing show [ yep, and 3 wardrobe changes ] at The Highline Ballroom last night.
Oh, so we missed the Janelle Monae's opening act...but, Bahareh snuck away with this great pic of her and Q-Tip.
Oh yeah, and we got him back onstage for an encore! We're getting REALLY good at this.

And here's a classic:

From Our Ancestors > For Our Future

A unanimous vote made Barack Obama the first African-American to become a major party nominee for president.

Oh, and let's not forget he's just as white as he is black. Afro-European American's more accurate.

This November'll be interesting, indeed.
