I've grown a little weary of the awards lists. I just finished all the 3 stars in the US recently & it was like a burden was lifted off of me... Like I was finally free to start exploring beyond the imaginary boundaries I had erected in my own mind. And just as I did so, the World's 50 best released its 51-100 list. I have to say it might as well have been a random list of very good restaurants, because the ordering didn't seem to align with my own experiences. And that's okay. I've always espoused the usfulness of these lists in my own life & nothing has changed with this new year of arbitrarily determined accolades. My friends, just take the list for what it is. A celebration. No more. No less.
That said, I would be remiss if I did not make my own prediction & thankfully it is one for which I do have a bit of recent personal experience.
El Celler De Can Roca is a restaurant at which you dine to complete your life's ambitions. It would pain me to see a less-deserving restaurant I've visited somehow overtake the Roca's pride & joy.
There are days when I dine alone or with friends, days when my wife for one reason or another cannot join me. I would have been heartbroken to have had this meal without her. It was amongst the happiest culinary experiences of recent memory. Meeting the brothers. Reading their story. Tasting their passion. If you take anything away from these lists, remember this: Amazing dining experiences don't come from a quorum of experts -- They come from the truth of personal experience. Mine tells me this will probably be amongst the few truly transcendent dining experiences of my lifetime.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, to our founder and Queen, Funbi! To all who know her or know of her, Funbi’s joy and love is ever so contagious. Her heart is pure and her emotions are passionate. Benevolent beyond words, she’s the best role model every young girl, lady, and woman should have. I am truly blessed to have her as my BFF/MOH/SISTER. I love you beyond words!! 💖👑🎂
Place: Our hearts
Rating: ∞🍦 out of 5🍦
Fun fact: Her favorite animal is an 🐘. Elephants symbolize strength, power, and loyalty. It’s no surprise that Funbi embodies every single sense of those qualities to its fullest!
They say to whom much is given much is expected, but what if what is perceived as “given” is something you’ve already had and took the time, blood, sweat and tears to cultivate? Is there still much to be expected? Yes, there is...and that’s okay, but let it be known that for many of us nothing is given, so we have to fight for it all.
I’m starting a taste-making podcast that will feature all the music that has influenced and inspired me along the way to making my debut album and beyond. The crux of it will be DJing on a budget, as financial hardship brought me here, using this controller to do something I’d prefer using turntables to do. However, I’ve learned a new skill, and have gotten a lot more comfortable designing live performances just in the process of making a template for this set. In short, I am still rising on the way to take what is rightfully due to me. Freedom and celebration in self-expression at a meticulous, masterful, self-knowledgeable level and recognition of such, because sometimes just getting out the bed is an achievement. This, too, will be another achievement for me, by me....
....but don’t worry, this is also for you 😘

An out-of-the-box party idea is what I love most, so when @thevanitygroup
reached out to me to design #HunchoDay
, I jumped at the challenge. The guest of honor @quavohuncho
celebrated his 27th birthday by giving back to children and fans at his alma mater. See more of this unconventional party design on the blog - link in profile #lemigaevents

Bandage or bondage? You decide. One of the things that draws me to the work of Robert Mapplethorpe is the underlying sexual tones. This piece is entitled Guaze from 1984.

Today we’re taking a step towards comfort and convenience by introducing our new Taste Leisure sandal. 🔥😻
We were hesitant about releasing sandals, but your feedback has given us reason to try something different. 👌 Happy Monday people! ❤️
If we are horrified by all forms of slavery and oppression, why aren’t we taking a stand against this one?!
There is a farm animal holocaust happening every single day, but we turn a blind eye cause it’s just too damn tasty.
I’m not completely vegan, so I’m not standing on a self righteous platform.
But I limit my dairy to goat and choose to eat sustainably farmed seafood.
These animals are tortured.
Also they receive no fresh air or sunlight.
Beautiful, intelligent sentient beings not allowed to live healthy and free.
I will never eat meat from factory farms or otherwise again.
And that is a promise.
