[The FLY Review] Brooklyn’s Vodou Bar …

We’ve heard about it for weeks.

We’ve seen the crowd from a far in passing.

We’ve said to ourselves, “We need to check this spot out!’

But Wednesday Evening, we experienced it for ourselves, and all we heard, was true.

The Vodou Bar is located comfortably in the heart of the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn. It’s location and appearance is lively enough to attract the attention of everyone who walks by, and it often does. In a neighborhood full of young professionals and up-and-coming-entrepreneurs (like ourselves), you need to be able to keep everyone’s interest, and with their decor and menu, Vodou has no problem keeping you intrigued.

We dined on Chiliyaki Wings (an asian infused masterpiece, roasted in sweet chili sauce), Nola Crawfish Roll Sliders (A take on a New England Style lobster roll), Mac & Cheese topped with bacon, and thee BEST Jerk Turkey Sliders I’ve ever tasted.

A-MAY-ZING *Rachel Zoe Voice*

For Drinks we sipped on Sidecars and their signature drink, The Vodou that You Do (Muddled orange and machismo cherry, orange bitters and Grapefruit Juice), and were treated to complementary cocktails from Given Tequila, all were equally delicious. to add on to our experience, we sat outside, and enjoyed some great laughs and conversation from both their attentive staff and the locals. What more could you ask?

The Vodou Bar definitely gets the Fly Guy’s Stamp of approval. Out of 5, we definitely give them a strong 4 for their food, drinks, service and ambiance. We highly suggest you make a visit, tell them we sent you!

The Vodou bar is located at 95 Halsey Street, Brooklyn NY, 11216 (On the corner of Nostrand Avenue).

Their website is www.vodoubar.com

[Last Night in NYC] Big Sean Album Release Show @ Irving Plaza…

Last Night, we were given the opportunity to attend Big Sean’s album release performance at Irving Plaza in NYC, sponsored by Adidas. Special Guests included Jay Z, Kanye West, Pusha T, and others…

Big Sean tore it down!!!! We’ve been following Sean for some time now, me especially being turned onto him by a close friend of mine about a year ago, and to see someone who you’ve followed before their fame, become “Finally Famous” was simply inspiring! His energy was insane and the men and women who rode with Sean since DAY 1 felt it.

The crowd was craaaazy, some fans having stood on line since 9am yesterday morning just to attend the free show. Fans sung each song word for word, including ones off of his debut album, which is set for release June 28th. And when Kanye hit the stage, the crowd went straight bonkers!

His set list included All of the Lights (Remix), Phone Numbers, Home Town, Made, High Rise, Too Fake (with Chiddy Bang), My Closet (with SAYITAINTTONE), My God (Pusha T), Gang Bang, Bullshitting, Lemonade, I Do It, Desire, Want, & Need, Memories,. Everything High, Ass, Marvin Gaye and Chardonnay (with Kanye West), Intro (A Capella), and My Last.

Much respect to Big Sean and the entire G.O.O.D Music family! Go cop that album on Tuesday!

Shout Outs to TheLifeFiles.com for the dope video footage!!

[The Fly Review] Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’…

You aren’t seeing things; this is indeed a review of Lady Gaga’s new jawn “Born This Way.” Here at SFPL we wave our Queen Bey flags all day, but we respect her competition. And that’s what Lady Gaga shows and proves. We must admit, Judas and Born This Way weren’t certified bangers in our book but that’s because we expected more from her singles. There’s a little bit of monster (term of endearment used by Lady G) in us so we were looking forward to hearing what she had to offer after the smash album that put her on the map, The Fame.

 

Marry The Night sets the dark  (but soulful) mood of this album but that doesn’t curve our appetite to hear what the next tasty track will be. Think Depeche Mode (yes, we know about that) meets 90s Whitney Houston.  It surges with the church organ, electric guitar and 90s dance music. Now I don’t know if they would play this where I give praise, but at the Temple of Gaga, I’m certain you wouldn’t feel like a dirty sinner, you’d feel like you were ready to repent. Speaking of repent, the next track Government Hooker (no she’s not talking about Arnold’s slide) makes more than a political statement. She references John F. Kennedy among other men of power who take advantage of the people they serve, while getting served. The songs Americano and Scheibe have a heavy Euro-rave feel, glow sticks and all but the last time we checked, the only thing we’d allow to glow in the dark is a pair of our Yeezy’s. Hair is a song that we got all the way into. No matter if it’s locs, relaxed or lace front(ed) we’ve all had our share of hair woes. And Lady Gaga has had her mane maintained more than enough times to know a little bit about being judged on what’s on your head instead of what’s in it. She belts out “I’m as free as my hair…” that’s a whole lot of freedom.

 

Black Jesus + Amen Fashion and Bad Kids are two of our fave tracks for the obvious reasons. Black Jesus is a bit biographical but the line that resonated with us the most was “put it on amen fashion/celebrate a new compassion.” And on Bad Kids she urges, “don’t be insecure if your heart is pure.”  And that’s what this album is: purely good music.  We copped it. We Like it. Go get it.

 

-Stay fly!
