1) How did the name “Dirtbags” come about?  

DB- The name “Dirtbags” came from me and my friend, we always used to be like man that’s some dirtbag shit you did right there.  ha.  It was a term that you really don’t hear anymore.   I mean, I like to do dirtbag shit.. I like to drink, women, party, get trashed.. etc.  What I am doing is taking something negative and making it into a positive.

2) What do most folk assume its about before you even tell them the meaning? 
 
DB-I had one person, be like, what is dirtbags?? it doesn’t sound appealing, especially to women.  I just ha said “Positive People Positve Outcomes” that usually turns everybody’s frown upside down.  #dirtbags

@BCAGlobal Food & Wine Experience

Picture a breath-taking, historic venue, tucked under Manhattan’s 59th Street Bridge, filled with a bounty of multi-cultural food, wine and spirits, all for your tasting pleasure.  That was the scene at the 8th Annual BCA Food and Wine Experience, November 18.

At this event, aspiring culinary and beverage professionals learn about the industry; established restauranteurs, sommeliers, and importers network and display their acheivements in the field with booths and tables from their businesses; and the BCA honors the dedication of pioneers of color in the wine industry with the Vision in Wine Award.  This year’s winner was David Gonzales of Pernod Ricard USA.

There were over 50 chefs serving tasty bites, from sweet to savory, along with wine and spirits from every region.

Here are some mouth-watering highlights from the evening:

New Movie: @JohnCarter


From Academy Award(R)-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes “John Carter”–a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). “John Carter” is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands. 

Can’t wait til this comes out!
