Bike, Bike then Body and Soul Memorial Weekend

Hello Good people,

I sure hope you enjoyed the surprisingly great weather this weekend. I took advantage on 2 wheels all weekend and surprisingly had the juice to let loose at the Body and Soul annual memorial day party. You would have thought you were at a New Years Eve gala with all the Balloons that lined Webster Hall that night. If you've followed the Body and Soul movement you know that these 3 legendary Dj's get down and do so for hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and get it right?

As a big part of my dancing history was spent in many a underground parties movin to deep house I tip my lid to these guys for bringing it that night and well into the morning. It was a musical journey with their distinct styles that just seem to flow seamlessly. Francois K with his Deep Space Soul, Danny Krivit with the Deep disco house remixes and then my favorite Joe Claussell with his percussion heavy-down and dirty house had me kickin and spinning non stop!

There was definitely no parking on this dance floor. "When you feel it in your soul let the groove take control and DANCE".

An Experimental workspace for the Summer

I had the pleasure of checking out an experimental workspace called MEET at the Apartment yesterday. Curated by the folks at the Wooster collective this pad is styled out with pieces from their collection to the Philip Stark chairs and the Malin + Goetz toiletries in the restroom. Meet at the Apartment hosts freelancers who want to get out of the house and have a space all set up with Wifi, tons of power outlets, snacks and energy drinks and all the office supplies you need. They're opening up the space free of charge for the first Monday of each month for the summer to people from all walks of the creative industry to work, gain new contacts and develop discussions within the free lancers community. Throughout the day, speakers and specialists will be giving seminars on topics such as self-branding, job hunting and blogging. The Apartment was such a well put together space that I found myself inspired to keep on creating. It was a great time and I had many interesting conversations that in one way or another redirected some of my thinking which always refreshing.

for more info on the next event and to RSVP copy and paste the link below. Freelancers don't sleep on this. Space is limited.
