What's up, y'all! How have you been? How is your momma, daddy, and babies? I'm pretty good. This weekend, CL and I braved the gas shortage here in Atlanta and got out in the streets. Friday night, we met at Dave & Buster's for drinks. Didn't realize that it was the meet and greet spot until I walked up in there and saw that the bar was packed with half-drunk folks. People can't possibly know how much of a fool they look when they drink too much. It was cool though. We had our drinks and then played a few games before checking out.
Every once and a while CL and I like to do something cultural. This weekend, we caught a performance of an August Wilson play, "Radio Golf" at the Alliance Theater. Great play! It starred Chad L. Coleman. Many of you may know him as Cutty from The Wire. CL, being a non-fan of The Wire, didn't know who he was but when he took off his shirt in the play, she was in love. LOL! Actually, the company is performing two of August Wilson's plays. The other one is "Gem of the Ocean". Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to see that one. The plays are the last two in the playwright's century series. I'm sure I've talked about my love for Mr. Wilson's work on The Playground before but I want to make sure black folks go out and support this man's work.
Yesterday, we went to see Spike Lee's latest film, Miracle at St. Anna. I truly enjoyed the movie and the performances of Laz Alonzo and Derek Luke. It had all the signature items of a Spike Lee movie; soundtrack, camera movements, and familiar faces. For me, that's a good thing. It's like hanging out with an old friend. The opening of one of his films used to be a major event in Black America. Now, it goes by quietly while folks flock to see that hot mess that Tyler Perry puts out. I just don't get it.
What did you do this weekend?
