Reggae in NYC

ORIGINAL POST: (3:30 a.m.)
Went out to a spot tonight. Gotta get up early but I figured that since I missed church, I needed to hit da club. Got to Sin Sin in the East Village and eventually the DJ started playing some good stuff. Going solo, I gotta keep my brain in the right spot so I just danced by myself to the roots and dancehall till 3 am and then figured church was over and headed home.

Having missed seeing Gregory because he was "slightly injured" (according to the BB King's website), I had to get in some reggae or I was gonna go postal style.

I will say I noticed some things. One. The girls are more respected at reggae clubs here than back home. Maybe it is just this spot, and Lord knows I have seen some women act like the last thing they ever want is respect at some clubs in NY before. But this spot was cool. If somebody did come hang on a girl and she said go away, dude left like that. Not used to seeing that. I mean, I am NOT used to seeing that kind of respect. Not in Seattle or LA anyway. When I used to go to the club with wifey, I had to power block. No fun. We just want to dance and at this spot everybody was nicing up the vibes.

AMENDMENT: (7 a.m.) Hitting the club till 3 a.m. is fine. Unless you gotta get up so soon that your body will quake. Uh oh.
