And That, My Friend, Is Why We Wear Belgian Shoes Hildamae, my somewhat uppity mother, upon whose knee I learned to also be somewhat uppity, had a few mantras that have stayed with me all the days of my life. “A LADY NEVER WEARS PRINTS TO THE CITY”. “GIN SHOULD BE STIRRED, NEVER SHAKEN, AND NEVER BEFORE NOON”. “A PERSON’S SHOES TELLS THE TRUE STORY”. and at the age of 12, when I came on my very first outing to New York City with Hildamae, we stayed at the Saint Regis Hotel.

The Opinionated Bitch – My Krispy Kreme Confessions

Saving The Slave! The once famed civil rights epicenter is up for auction, and Sarah Wolff, with her 501 (c) 3, New Brooklyn Theatre, are trying to save it. The Slave Theater became a Brooklyn civil rights landmark in the early 1980s, when community activists like Al Sharpton and Alton Maddox came to the political foreground during rallies at the theater, and racial tensions in New York City were running high. Now it sits empty, but not devoid of history.
