The weekend of August 20-21 was pretty busy. Soooo many things were happening in the city. Chuck Brown Day and No Kids Allowed (NKA) black owned business month pop-up are highlighted in this post. That Saturday, the 8th Annual Chuck Brown Day kicked off to celebrate the life of the music and DC legend himself @ Chuck Brown Memorial Park featuring Rare Essence, Doug E Fresh, the Chuck Brown Band, Vendors, Food Trucks, kid activities and more.
On Sunday, No Kids Allowed held a pop-up to spotlight a Black Owned Business that week: Inspire The Tribe. ADDICTION followers are no stranger to her or her business here. Many of joint shenanigans and business promote posts throughout the years.
Take a look into a visual recap of how both went....
I brought Marley with me to her first gogo lol. Lil mama was excited.
Their chicken was on 1s and 2s.
Big cuz pulled up!
This was thee ONLY shot I got of the stage. Walking through THAT crowd there. A tangled web we weave. Seriously, it was INSANE. I couldn't do it. Got my shot and went back out into the hills.
wind me up Chuck!
The crank was undeniable and truth be told, I had a moment where I reflected to what I already know. There is NO place like DC. There is NO place like home. It was a great turn out and honor for Chuck. I know he was looking down smiling.
The following day... I stopped through NKA's pop-up. S.o. to my bew Hannah. The spotlight for that week was for my fren's business, Inspire the Tribe. The weather was rainy, but warm and still brought in a great turn out. When the crowd would die down, I was able to snap photos. If you're in the DC area or visiting soon, check out NKA and what they are all about ;-).
I always pull up with a lil taste.
Tyler for the tunes.
Janet on Janet on Janet.
The rain stopped by the time the event was over. Off to get a bite to eat...
but first... *have some.
I'm not gon hold you. I've had Pho from many of place, but Nooshi's pho was Top.Tier. Delicious.
