    Recap: D’usse Power Couple Brunch At Home Maid

    February 21st, 2017

    This past Sunday afternoon,  D’usse brand ambassador  Azikiwe Deveaux hosted a power couple brunch honoring some of the city’s most notable stand out husband and wives at Baltimore’s newest black owned hot spot Home Maid ( 1400 Key Highway) .

    The afternoon featured a menu curated by D’usse which included infused french toast, chicken and waffles, shrimp, salmon and grits. Everything was absolutely delicious! Our favorite part of the menu was of course the carefully crafted  D’usse cocktails for the event; LemonMaid (get it? ha) and Lorraine75.

    Home Maid’s quaint feel, made us literally feel right at home. The restaurant while intimate, is very inviting. It’s obvious that each dish is made with love, especially their grandma style homemade biscuits that we all couldn’t get enough of.  Couples enjoyed fellowshipping with one another and playing games, one of which had us all impersonating our spouses and it was absolutely hilarious! It was inspiring to see that each couple there was helping the Baltimore and surrounding community thrive in some way.

    “We wanted to honor you all because you set the example willingly,”  brand ambassador Azikiwe Deveaux  expressed. “You all show how it should be done.”

    What a fabulous day and we can’t wait for the next event!

    Review: Gunther’s & Co. Restaurant

    January 6th, 2017

    Stepping into Gunther’s & Co. (3650 Toone St.) for the first time is a great reminder of why they call Baltimore “Charm City.”

    The relatively new restaurant opened this past summer and it does not disappoint.

    Upon entrance you step into a large exposed brick bar that looks beyond gorgeous in this renovated boiler room turned cocktail hot spot.

    Although my girlfriends and I could have easily eaten in the bar we went to the dining side of the restaurant which was equally as gorgeous with two levels that include large intimate booths, low lighting and family style rectangular tables. It’s absolutely stunning!

    We indulged in red wine, the mac n’ cheese, french fries, Butternut Squash Ravioli and so much more! Everything was absolutely delicious.

    I highly recommend you try it out! Yummers.

    Recap: Mary J. Blige Talks Her Divorce at ‘King and Queen of Hearts’ Tour Stop in DC

    November 7th, 2016

    Thousands of women flocked to the Verizon Center (601 F Street NW) last night, dressed in their best, to see Mary J. Blige and Maxwell on their “King and Queen of Hearts” D.C. tour stop.

    Mary hit the stage first kicking the night off with some of her biggest hits like “Just Fine,” “I Can Love You,” “Share My World,” and a number of uptempo hits.

    The audience stood the entire time and chanted “Go Mary!” as she did her famous two-step all across the stage — in thigh-high boots — in a way that only Mary can.

    Thank you DC for an amazing night!! #kingandqueenofhearts #DC #vote #imwithher #masonmichelhat

    Later in her performance, she slowed it down to perform her famous heartbreak ballots like “I’m Going Down,” “No More Drama” and “Not Gon’ Cry” to name a few.

    In the middle of her “No More Drama” performance, Mary paused to speak on her impending divorce with her estranged husband.

    “What’s real is I’m going through some real heavy shit,” the singer told the audience with her voice cracking. “Real heavy.”

    She bowed her head a bit with her blue fedora hat cocked to the side and continued belting out her hits as the audience cheered in support.

    Maxwell closed the show with very low energy compared to Mary. Still, the audience enjoyed his rendition of Prince songs and “This Woman’s Work” in which he payed homage to “Black Lives Matter” with video clips of young black men and women, who have died throughout the pass few years.
