Cherie & Saada +


READ: THE TRAIN

Cherie: Trains and buses have given me some of my best reading experiences.

 

READ: G TRAIN

Saada: It's usually slow, its usually late so its the perfect place to catch up on reading. 

 

TAKE A GUY FRIEND: BEAST OF BOURBON

Saada: I'll be honest its literally a block a way from my apartment and the people are so nice! Not to mention they have these yummy frito nachos with brisket.

THINK: FORT GREENE PARK

Saada: It's the closest park to where I live and sometimes the only place I can take in nature & have solitude.

DANCE: BEMBE

Cherie: I walk into the place dancing and do not stop until it is time to go! The vibe at bembe is off the flipping chain! Live percussion sets...My Dominican ass goes crazy banging on instruments and dancing up and down the bar. I feel right at home when i'm there.

DANCE: CASABLANCA

Saada: Since I do events for a living I tend to be more of a home body. However, Casablanca is the local spot that I know that I will be guaranteed a good time! I like going to the Dj Moma's party at Casablanca which is every 3rd saturday of the month. The next one is June 20th.

iTunes/Spotify/Soundcloud tracks

Saada: I have a playlist called ‘Morning Jamz' that gets me in a good mood in the AM.

Cherie: My favorite songza playlists are-- '90s sing-along, laid-back R&B/soul, and Downtown Swagger 


Prized possession

Saada: My family and health are my most prized possession. But if you are speaking of material possession I would have to say my family photos from the past.

Cherie:  Don't get too attached to things. 

Quotes/words you live by

Saada: "This too shall pass" and "Put yourself in someone else's shoes."

Cherie “You can't control everything that happens to you; you can only control the way you respond. In your response is your power” and " La vida es un carnival!!"
