Think: The Park

I like to think in the park. Sometimes I sit by the basketball courts and steep in my thoughts. Not by the playground though because if you don't have a kid, they call the cops on you for looking like a creep. 

 

Dance: House parties 

There's just a different vibe at house parties. People really tend to let their hair down and just dance. That's what I like, being surrounded by friends with good music. The hotter, the better. Sweat is a big part of a fun house party. 

 

Take a guy friend: Polo Bar

My friend John took me to the Polo Bar for my birthday. It's famously hard to get into, but we did. And we made friends with the staff. The place itself is a Lo' heads dream. Horse power all over. But it's the old fashioneds that keep us coming back.

Tourist attraction: Exhibitions and Installations

I like the idea of temporary tourist attractions, like exhibitions or installations. My parents came up in the summer to see the Kara Walker sugar sphinx...then I showed them the Biggie mural on Franklin & DeKalb.
