Fall Mornings

Rolling over noticing the sun is up and already beaten you to the start of a new day. You’re not late for anything but you certainly didnt make the early whistles of dawn whispering “it’s time to wake up”. A morning yawn and cat-like stretch causes you to realize the slight drop in temperature from weeks past.

Only when you step outside the thought of a light jacket crosses your mind. There’s a distant fog slowly backing away from your vision. It didnt rain but your vehicle has the slightest touch of dew, the air exhales and the sun approaches it’s position in the sky.

Sun Glasses and Scarf season is here! Fall is an awesome time of year for Klass and myself!

3 Reasons why I’m looking forward to Fall:

  1. Chocolate Bar starts back up! No excuses, come to Chocolate Bar any Saturday for brunch and enjoy amazing food, the best of downtown Boston and sounds by a Klassmate or yours truly 😉 See this post for more details.
  2. Klass Universal Busy Season* It’s the season of Mitzvahs, holiday parties, seasonal weddings.. Time to #MakeMoves! As an aside, stay posted for regular event updates on the blog. I’ll be highlighting an event each week showing you some of the best Klass has to offer and some unique and fun aspects of the event/group itself.
  3. FOOTBALL! – Nuff said. Cannot contain my excitement. You now know where and what I’ll be doing every Sunday.

3 Ways you can make your Fall awesome:

  1. Start a new fitness routine! Get focused NOW before you’re dreading the holiday weight gain. There a ton of Fall races, many of them for charity, sign up for one and build a training plan.
  2. Pumpkin. Now, I’m not really a coffee drinker. But everyone else in my life is going bananas over Pumpkin coffee, pumpkin chai tea.. even my roommate is going on about pumpkin hummus and pumpkin muffins. So, I don’t know – embrace the Fall spirit 😛
  3. Embrace the Back to School season* It’s still back to school season for some of you and even if it’s not, take advantage of it and Shop for a new outfit – go buy a new Fall item; infinity scarves, jackets, running tights. Or, Start a Book – there are so many reasons why you should read more, pick up a book or download one to your iPad or other electronic device and then send me some recommendations.

Welcome Fall!

Summer 2012 ReKap

I had a great Summer and had a ton of fun – I am more than sad to see it go, but, I’m glad to have the opportunity to look back on it and highlight some of it in a Summer ReKap for you all!

(I know Summer isn’t officially over for about another week and a half BUT after Labor Day passes and Chocolate Bar starts up, it becomes the Fall for me)

HERE WE GO!

Had to go with my Top 3 for these first few (Summer had WAY too many awesome things going on!):

  • -Movie: Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, Prometheus.
  • -Song: Only One by Chris Lake, She Wolf by David Guetta, Don’t you worry Child by Swedish House Mafia
  • -Venue: MiniBar still going strong On Mondays and Emerald is Growing Quickly! One Memorable Royale Night with Cito and Behrang (Miss those Guys)
  • -Creative Talent: Somebody that i used to know (Cover) By Walk off the Earth STILL AMAZING
  • -New Grown & Sexy Spot: Emerald Lounge (see my review in this post,) The Seaport has been amazing for the Summer*
  • -New Equipment: New Rayn Mixer “62” Any questions?! Haha
  • -New Experience: Started riding a Motorcycle; dropped the first day and been riding ever since. Indescribable!
  • Funniest Moment: Oh man, in my life there are so many…
  • Best Moment: Fire at a Friends house talking and reminiscing until Sunrise. That’s a good life!
  • New Thing I Learned: How to buy a Condo and How to Ride a Crouch Rocket!
  • New Thing I Got Into or, I am Interested in: Reading is growing on me little by little and I may have caught myself watching episodes of Grey’s Anatomy on Netflix… OMG SMH….
  • New Challenge: Developing my organization skills and attempting to grow to the next level in entertainment. Fitness is still a strong passion and strengthening my relationships with friends and family. That last one is especially important because you are a result of who you surround yourself with. Deny till you die but it is what it is.
How was your Summer? What were some of your favorite moments/experiences? Any new spots, movies or songs I should be digging into?!
Until next time……….

Chocolate Bar is Back for the Fall!

I am very excited to tell you all that Chocolate Bar is back, TOMORROW! The Chocolate Bar is featured at Cafe Fleuri in the Langham Hotel in Boston.

The Chocolate Bar is set up with a variety of stations that offer all different types of chocolate treats, desserts and food. The Langham Hotel describes it as such:

“The decadent Chocolate Bar features stations with varying levels of chocolate intensity and flavors – from white to dark and everything in between. A DJ plays hit music to set a fun, upbeat tone where families indulge in close to 200 pounds of premium chocolate each Saturday. A never-ending supply of cupcakes, truffles, brulees, bread pudding, crepes, whoopee pies and more take center stage while Executive Pastry Chef Jed Hackney creates rotating items with fresh, seasonal ingredients such as September’s lemon madeline with ivoire cremeax and strawberries, and a caramelized white chocolate torte with banana and sesame.

The DJ is yours truly 😉 They also serve chocolate based cocktails that can be included as a part of the package price. I look forward to the Chocolate Bar every year because it is so much fun (and we all know how much I love to have my fun!) Everyone enjoys it, the location is beautiful and you have awesome views of the city. The food options are always changed up a bit, like they mentioned in the excerpt from above, and it never disappoints.

 

If you have any friends or family visiting, bachelorette parties coming up, etc it’s a great place to bring them. It’s a unique experience and it’s in a great location to show anyone around Boston – and just in case it wasn’t clear.. it’s CHOCOLATE (who doesn’t love that?)

Until the end of next June, I will be there every Saturday from 11a – 3pm and I hope to see as many of you there as possible :)

Also, for something equally enjoyable and delicious, every Sunday at Cafe Fleuri they have their Sunday City Brunch. The best brunch option in Boston (in my humble opinion) while live jazz music is played.

If you’re looking for something to do around Boston during the day or as a visitor or for visitors – Saturday morning/afternoon at the Chocolate Bar and Sunday City Brunch. Then you can always check out Bond at night. Mentioned in this previous post; and your weekend in Boston is complete – word!

Reliving Memorial Day Weekend

How’s everyone’s weekend going?! Rainy? :(  All of this rain got me thinking about how amazing last weekend was and I figured I’d focus on the sunshine and share my Memorial Day weekend!

My weekend started on Friday night at the latest hotspot Emerald (more on that this week!) and then I spun at Red Lulu; amazing as always! Saturday started like every other with a great time at Chocolate Bar. The Chocolate Bar is a really unique and fun way to spend a Saturday in the heart of Boston. Hosted in Café Fleuri at the Langham Hotel in the Boston’s financial district with yours truly bringing the energy! You only have a few more weeks left before it’s gone for the summer, so make sure you check it out and let me know what you think J I finished the night at Governor’s Academy for their end of the year dance with Shadi while DJ Nixx killed it at Red Lulu- #KlassMovement Seriously though it was a #Klassy weekend of some really exciting and fun events.

Sunday and Monday I had the rare, fun opportunity to enjoy two days in a row with my friends and take advantage of #Boston and the weekends’ perfect weather.

Sunday night I went to Legal’s Harborside for the first time. To sum it up: Amazing views of the city and the water, and Great drinks (Coconut Lemonade is KJ #CoSigned).. BUT, the food wasn’t that good and the service was definitely slow. Afterwards the party was at Cure with my friends and #Klassmates DJ Kazz “MrGetWidIt” and DJ Case in attendance, and DJ Hectik behind the DJ booth.

Memorial Day I had lunch with friends, spent some time poolside and ended the night at the best place to be every Monday night: Minibar. DJ Kazz was spinning so you know it was awesome!  But, the best part of Memorial Day were the many, many FB status’ about our nation’s service members.   It was a great way of showing appreciation and the importance of them all and really remembering how fortunate we all are because of them #TrueHeroes.

Please share how you all spent your #MemorialDayWeekend and stay focused on the sunny days ahead!

Tour of Boston: Where were you for St. Patrick’s Day?!

St. Patrick’s Day is definitely one of the most heavily celebrated events in Boston. Could it be Southie, the Boston Celtics, Movie “The Town,”  “The Departed,” and their insane embellishment of our accents? (I digress). It seems like every year it’s all anyone is talking about and I’m constantly being asked where I’m going to be and if I celebrate.  Truth is, it’s just like any other weekend for me & #Klass. Meaning: fun, exciting and filled with music and dancing. In other words, worked a few gigs!

This year St. Patty’s Day was on a Sat, which means I was spinning at Chocolate Bar, then I made a special appearance at Red Lulu in Salem, Ma. I love the Chocolate Bar even though I don’t eat much of the chocolate. The Langham Boston Hotel is a dope spot. Right in the heart of the Financial District, the hotel is home to one of my favorite spots; BOND and Cafe Fleuri. Cafe Fleuri has the most amazing, over the top brunch w/live Jazz (perfect for the the next morning). Seriously check that out on Sundays, and Chocolate Bar on Saturdays is a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Who isn’t obsessed with Chocolate?!

I won’t even begin to describe how much of an adrenaline rush I had after spinning for Red Lulu on Saturday night. I don’t get behind the DJ booth too much for 2 reasons: 1) Dj Kazz and the rest of the #Klass Dj’s are far better than I, 2) It’s incredibly difficult to stay back there while everyone else is dancin’ it up. Ha! However when I do get back there, It’s a completely different type of fun for me! Red Lulu is a new sexy spot on Lafayette St. Salem, MA. The sister of Lolita in Boston and they both never fail to impress in any regard. I was able to play songs from all kinds of genres and that was easily the best part. From Peter Gabriel, to the Police, to Diddy, Maino, Rihanna, Kings of Leon I mean the list goes on. Crazy Good Time!

Both Lolita of Boston and Lulu of Salem are KJ #CoSigned! Amazing food; I’ve seriously never had anything from there that I didn’t love. Salmon Coco and Shrimp Tacos Please! O,r if you are the healthy type peep their version of the Caesar salad (Try the Croutons) & the drinks are unparalleled. They’re creative and different; every drink is muddled with fresh ingredients/fruit and the menu continues to evolve. Some of my personal favorites are the Bonita, White Lie, Gin Blossom & Diablo margarita. They’re always integrating some new seasonal drinks and menu items soon so check back for any new recommendations!

So how many of you #Bostonians DID go to the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Southie? Any good spots YOU can recommend? Please feel free to respond to this blog and yes I’m serious I want to know what you did!

Weekend ReKap w/Klass Entertainment…

Sup readers,

This blog is a little different in that it is what we like to do on Mondays or Tuesdays. We try to go over all of the events we have done and do a quick little recap about what went down. It’s a good way for those who are not working or were on different events to know what others were doing and stay involved. It’s called the Weekend ReKap and it’s written by Yours Truly. This past weekend was particularly interesting because I was just getting back from Puerto Rico (WHICH WAS AMAZING) and had zero time to turn around and Dj the Chocolate Bar first thing Saturday morning then shoot over and perform for the Bertner/Mundt Wedding by Sd Events. So with that… here is our weekend rekap…!

 

Hey all,

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Just wanted to say i’m glad to be home and thanks for all the birthday wishes and gifts they were all appreciated.
Dj Murray and Shadi are heating up with the Dover sherborn folks as well as the Concord Ma area three times now have they worked together and been immediately request for another event within weeks of each other. That tells us that people are throwing parties just because of how good they are. Big Ups to the Both of you. Here’s what the client had to say about Dj Murray and Shadi:
The guys were awesome!  We had a terrific party!   Everyone loved the DJs!
Check is in the mail & We will continue to highly recommend this duo!!!
Take care!
Chocolate bar @ The Langham, Boston’s Cafe Fleuri was the busiest it’s been since the new season. As always the music was a little bit of everything and the guests seemed very pleased with the musical ambience provided by Klass.
Saturday night was a Residential Wedding for a client atop their Penthouse Condo over looking All of Boston and I mean all of Boston!! Dj Kazz was available to assist on this extremely long event and was told he was absolutely amazing and the client has said multiple times she has “NO Words” lol. So Thanks to Dj Kazz for raising the bar yet again and introducing clients and guests alike that function djs can bring an element that can’t be described by words. The event was planned by SD Events
We were also joined by Trifect Video Production who captured the entire night on video and were as always professional and talented individuals. We are looking forward to working with them alot in the upcoming weeks as we are looking at a December launch of our new Website! Yes i know about time… Stay tuned and thanks TVP…
Here’s what the party planner had to say this morning about the Bertner/Mundt Wedding.
“….so that’s what happens when you get your team together…..!!!
 
Kupah, where to begin?
Thank you so much for going above and beyond to make our client happy.
From meeting with her at her home, which I know is not typical….to bringing along Kaz to ensure that it would be perfect…to bringing the extra lights…and the addition of the video, all of it was so over the top.
 
In addition to the talent and energy that you bring to the table, the level of service that you provide is equally incredible.
It is such a  true pleasure working with you and your team.
Looking forward to the next one!
Ivy
And this was from the client the next day (sunday)
“*#$% you amazing. You killed it last night. Let us know if we can ever serve as any reference or if there is anything we can do for you to help you…”
So I hope you were all able to take a second and read this because we are doing some really good work out there and you should all be very proud. We have a lot of work to do moving forward to please let us know how we can be better ; )
Thanks everyone!

The Day After…

Friday: Tash Shows up and we spend the day Shopping and buying her all kinds of goodies while making friends. Weird that we would make friends in public. It’s not like we are social or anything. 3 Outfits and 4 Heels Later she is a new woman with bags for days. YES, I made her carry her own bags. Friday night we checked out Dj KAZ formerly known as DJ TWIST at FELT, Boston. Night was all good until “Whip My Hair” came on and some girl Got her hair WHIPPED hahah! No Bueno so we rounded up the troops and SKATED. NOT MY SCENE.

Saturday: Tash visited me at the Chocolate Bar where I Dj every Saturday afternoon from 11am-3pm. She came, she saw, she conquered the Chocolate that is (and my wallet I might add). Later in the day Cousin Steve came to join the party and we all caught a quick cat nap. Then it was onto the next one. First a stop at Lolita to visit Xavier (Cousin)(Kup’s Roomate). Then off to BOND where DJ KAZ and KLASS were Spinnin. What was supposed to be a low key GRENADE turned into a Balls Out Celebration! Krazy how that happens whenever we are in the Building?!?! Tash was Dancing, Drinking, Mingling, Drinking, Laughing, Drinkinggggg. Someone find her and ask her how that worked out???

Easter Sunday: Tash no longer believes in Jesus because he would’ve never let Saturday Night Happen Haha. She has been UP-Chucking (That’s how she says it) Since Saturday night all the way through Sunday. We all watched the Heat Lose and The Celts Sweep So aside from the Launching Up of Tash’s intestines, The Day WAS GREAT! At night we have movie night and watched BOLT, Zzzzzzzzzzzz. Not her favorite movie.

Monday Morning: Now I’m watching her pack and sad already because I miss her! She is my angel, my motivation, my positive mood, my happiness and I hate to see her go. We have already made promises to see each other soon and Kup doesn’t make promises he can’t keep. I hope she has a safe trip home and I will be waiting for her safe arrival later this day.

Love you Sis! Hope you had a good time with Family and Friends. S2B forever!
