Meet my real friends. We celabrated Nancy turning thirty years young, wink- wink. See her stage left worthy of a Cruella DeVille title with the two tone hair. An intimate group of close friends gathered around tall mirrors as we played dress-up in her upscale women’s clothing boutique of 23 years. Being the youngest in the room is a familiar place. If all else fails, at least when you arrive there will always be a nice aged spirit accompanied by a well-mannered bartender. “White or red? There’s more champagne if you’d like.” In the end, we’re all the same and I have a small appetite too — plated cheese and crackers will do. See you guys in 24 hours for another outside adventure of Where in the World is Carmen Shamdiego?

Re: Yall not about that Diana Ross lifestyle! Phifer & Friends partied till undisclosed hours as music artist Wil May hosted #COOL; which is a weekly series every Friday at the W Hotel Midtown–the crowd is a diverse group of cool kids, banker-lawyer types, artsy smartsies, and ATL movers & shakers–who are digitally savvy, visually conscious, and hungry for progressive, high energy music. Your style is your cover as elegance meets sexy. Located on the 3rd floor of the W Hotel Midtown Phifer was sailing on a cloud and looking down below. As he partied dressed like his true inner feelings: rich. I had a foxy & feathery night. Black Beluga moments for everyone on my team!

Rock House Tybee is the new island home for all folks who believe parties are always better at the beach! This original bar and grill is ready to rock Savannah! The Rock House is the new entertainment epicenter of south beach Tybee! Chef Christopher Miller’s bodacious bar menu features right-off-the boat shrimp served a whole slew of different ways, and his signature Big Fat Freakin’ Burritos, authentic baja-style fish tacos and rock-your-world chili colorado. And then there’s the music! Most nights of the week there is live entertainment at the Rock House. But does eating fried pickles humanize me? The best!

On February 11th Atlantic Division Entertainment and The Masquerade hosted a concert for American rapper and director A$AP Rocky.

Atlanta’s integral market and unique taste-maker population fused together a savvy demographic for the grand finale as Atlanta was the last stop on the 12-city “A$AP Mob Tour”. We dangerous, they pay a fee just to hang with us. We take meetings with vultures, feel me out, I’m used to hangin with boosters–in the best name brands.

Last week in Charleston: Paradise now in classic high society comforting decor. An affair to remember, experiencing a new level of luxury and service at High Cotton fine dining restaurant owned by the Marverick Group — an array of southern restaurants and a teaching kitchen/cooking retail shop sharing distinctive culinary experiences that celebrate Southern culture. I snacked on the sauteed golden tilefish topped with crispy sweet potates, littleneck clams, swiss chard, and fennel cream. While my good friend Lindsay enjoyed her pan roasted snapper.
High Cotton; High steppin’ Lowcountry food and fine dining. It’s a feeling of warmth and celebration that begins the moment you step inside.

Press REC and film me. Check it. Like JET magazine. This is my mack daddie vibe I am giving you. In all its splendor. What you think about a boy like me: I am my #1 priority; no falling inlove no commentiment from me. Friday night we won. Phifer; the muse of much top-notch entertainment, perfectly packaged into chic lifestylin and green living. This is the Dynasty AUC era–young with wealthy educations. SpelHouse has arrived at last, and we give off a gilded glare. In the words of Uncle Jay “Remind yourself. Nobody built like you, you design yourself.” –So this shouldn’t come as shocking news: Phifer got ridiculously maximal, blowing past all the rules of being Phifer. This is the return of luxury furs and penthouse homes. As we partied dressed like our true inner feelings. Atlanta was such a casual city, until we introduced elegance to sexy. No-no, Phifer is not your lover–I’m not your friend; I am something every taste maker can comprehend; I–will–pose–for–you. We can pose until the crack of dawn; you’ll read our tweets and get into our Instagrams–a life worth living. And I live. –>Inside Story

We need more, don’t we? Oh. This is- This might be- what do you think of…executive chef Adam Maddox? Clap-clap bravo, dinner was superb at Einstein’s. Oh, please… it’s just- I don’t know- judging from the sound of orders, business is booming. Einstein’s is a nifty venue–it is a trendy spot with very chic decor and dance music fills the place with energy; it is a place the “midtowners” can easily walk to on their way to a concert or Piedmont Park. Einstein’s combines a world-class outdoor patio with a sophisticated bar stocked with Heineken, and interior dining for the most unique space in Atlanta. Inside luxe décor creates a casual, modish atmosphere, highlighted by stylish lighting and rich wood trim. Outside, a large tree-shaded patio beckons, earning Einstein’s the most votes as “Best Outdoor Dining Experience” year after year. The food–one word: magnifique. The menu here is beyond flavorful (the fried okra is the best of all time) which topped this dinner off, No-no this isn’t a question. R.S.V.P. yes to Einstein’s.
