RAMBLING ROSE: Black History Month ends with a bang!
Rosa Pryor | 2/27/2015, 7 a.m.
Hello, Hello, Hello, my dear friends. “BABY, BABY IT COLD OUTSIDE!” Girlfriend, I am not complaining, because when I look at the news on TV, at other cities on the East Coast, we are truly blessed. But it is cold as you-know-what outside!
Black History Month events are going on every weekend, no matter the weather. I think it is wonderful that you have supported these events in these harsh cold, windy, snowy and icy conditions. That is real dedication and strong support and I am sure the organizations hosting these events appreciate you. All the events I have written about and attended were very successful.
So wrap up warm and let’s party. The Grown & Sexy Affair “Sabian’s” is hosting an affair on Saturday, February 28 at 3934 Frederick Avenue from 9 p.m. until 1 a.m. The dress code is sexy and grown, with buffet, BYOB and DJ Mike will provide the music.
Lexington Market is ending their Black History Month with a bang! It is Artisan’s Weekend, with vendors set up in the Arcade, selling and displaying hand-made jewelry, clothing, crafting, paintings, dolls, live entertainment and much more. It is an ideal lunchtime spot to enjoy fresh food, shopping and socializing and it is free.
Baltimore’s Dunbar Alumni Jazz Band headed by Trombonist/educator, Charles Funn, will perform some Billy Strayhorn compositions, called “A Journey Down Memory Lane at the Jazz @ Wesley Uptown, 5312 Connecticut Avenue NW in Washington, DC. Saturday, February 28, 6:30 p.m. Free admission, but donations are accepted. For more information, call 202-262-7571.
Before I forget, I want to let you know that I will be going on vacation from March 12 thru March 29, so if you got anything going on between; March 1 thru April 15th, I suggest that you email it to me now to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or mail it to me to: 214 Conewood Road, Reisterstown, Maryland 21136. Please remember that if you wish for me to do a book signing at your event, please indicate that.
My “Boo-Boo” and I with my son, Keith and his wife Lisa will be going on a cruise to Panama, Aruba and St. Maarten leaving out of Tampa, Florida. We will be catching a train to Florida, because I do not fly. This will be the first time I have ever been on a train in my life. I am very excited about that. The Carnival Pride Cruise Ship will return to Baltimore. So while you will be shoveling snow, I will be in my bathing suit soaking up the sun on the beach. I LOVE IT!
Check this out! Get paid to sing Karaoke with Last Chance Entertainment when they present the only over 40 Karaoke Contest & Show on Sunday, March 1, starting at 4 p.m. at the Forest Park Senior Center, 4801 Liberty Heights Avenue. It is cabaret style with BYOB and BYOF, with free set ups. They will have full course dinners available on sale for those who wish not to bring their own food. They will also have raffle, door prizes and vendors, so bring some extra cash and credit cards, live entertainment and a lot of fun. I also will be there with my new book for a book signing. For ticket information, call Smokey at 410-532-2274.
Well, my dear friends, I have to finish packing and I am out of space. Remember if you need me, call me at 410-833-9474 or email me at: email@example.com. UNTIL THE NEXT TIME, I’M MUSICALLY YOURS.
