In my brief break from my usual obsessive pop-politics blogging (as I’m back East for work yet again), I’ve been scampering all around the place covering events and shuttling from one place to another. I wrapped up CBC week/weekend quite possibly hitting as many soirées as possible, including everything from hanging out with, of all people surprisingly, Sen. Roland Burris of Illinois (who I once joked would pimp walk around the Capitol all day long after he was made a senator) to attending a benefit for Haiti. All this will be chronicled in my first story for ESSENCE.com online which I’m writing today from an internet cafe I had to walk around Bed-Stuy for nearly an hour to find. My usual Bed-Stuy spot, Aida’s, was closed, so BlackSnob HQ is temporarily at The T-Cup Cafe off of Fulton St. right now. I also attended the end of the Urbanworld Film Festival Sunday, catching the awards’ brunch and meeting many of the participates and directors. I’ll be doing a recap of some of the films of Urbanworld over the coming weeks as I get all caught up. Big ups to Hopi, Karen and Jada for making this trip a possibility. Per usual I’m operating short on sleep and long on hustle. Stay tuned, same Snob time. Same Snob channel.
