So the last few days have been relatively interesting. Everyday this city has something new and exciting to offer. Saw Jurassic 5 at the Theater of the Living Arts on South Street we had a ball the performance was crazy. Cannot believe that I won these tickets a week ago at the Roots Picnic. The people are so friendly and always good vibes. That was only my Thursday.
Friday consisted of the Cleveland at least trying to make this series entertaining. God win and if they take it one game at a time this is should be entertaining. Also the premier of OITNB season 5 and it’s a shame I am going to finish it over the weekend but its amazing how they keep current with the times and also give you an interesting glimpse into prison and how fucked up it can be. On that note there’s another documentary 13th amendment where they go very deep into the mandatory minimums and how truly screwed up the prison system is especially when it is more concerned with profit generation and as opposed to rehabilitation. That’s a great debate topic but again this is just food for thought you do what you’d like with it.
First weekend in the last year of my twenties I consider the weekend Thursday through Sunday because realistically Friday is fake it until you make it day and then you proceed to make the best out of your weekend. Adulting activities running errands paying bills etc. but at some point, you have to enjoy life right. Its not work pay bills go home repeat until the ticker stops correct? All that being said going to check out a rooftop bar downtown because I am obsessed with views. The ones in NYC are fantastic but since Philadelphia is home now I plan to see what they have to offer. Bok Bar will get a review at the end of the night.
As for TLA interesting crowd good vibes and pretty cheap beer all things considered. The one issue I have with the place is the line to get in or lack thereof. We just seemed to huddle in a large circle around the place but beyond that it was an amazing atmosphere. This is my second time visiting the venue and I will be going back. The acoustics are pretty good for a tight area which is hard to do with most places and I would recommend to a friend.
So on my way out I feel its only right to leave you with a Jurassic 5 quote…..
“Let’s take it back to the concrete streets Original beats with real live MC’s Playground tactics, no ‘rabbit in a hat’ tricks Just that classic, rappin’ from Jurassic”
