                                        TALIB KWELI

When: Tuesday, June 21, 2011 at 7:00PM
Where: Red Hook Park


For over 15 years, Talib Kweli has been a king of New York hip-hop who has an expansive international audience.
Kweli’s work with Mos Def on the famed album, Black Star still stands as one of hip-hop’s premier collaborations and was instantly hailed by critics upon its release. Regarded as a virtuoso performer that continues to wow audiences and critics alike, Kweli has performed all over the world, offering fans his unique rhyming style. Famous for his collaborations with artists as diverse as Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, Mary J. Blige, Norah Jones and many more, Kweli has had a career filled with success and innovation. To many, it comes as no surprise that both Jay-Z and 50 Cent, at the height of their stardom, both counted Kweli among their favorite rappers.





OZOMATLI

When: Wednesday, June 22, 2011 at 7:00PM


Ozomatli celebrates the multitude of cultures in Los Angeles with their music – a notorious urban-Latino-and-beyond collision of hip-hop and salsa, dancehall and cumbia, samba and funk, merengue and comparsa, East LA R&B, Jamaican ragga and Indian raga.
For 15 years, they have entertained audiences around the world with their unique sound of horns, percussions, strings and vocals while promoting a positive message of peace. They served as official U.S. State Department Cultural Ambassadors and exemplified how diversity promotes change. According to the LA Times, “Ozomatli’s deep community connections and polyglot mix give the band a musical and cultural cachet.” The seven multi-racial members of Ozomatli are committed to addressing social issues of local, national, and international importance through fun, yet inspirational entertainment.

FOODIE ALERT: Crofters Organic Jam



Recently, we came across this yummy looking jar in our favorite supermarket, Fairway!
We bought the product and then researched the company. We loved it so much we tweeted them and they sent us some coupons so we could try some more. So we went back to Fairway with coupons in hand and picked up some more. The rest is history.
We are in love CROFTERS! 

This is truly something you have to try!
We love blogging and enjoy sharing products we think are awesome with you! 

The Bear is what first caught our eyes, then we checked the label and packaging noticing
how amazing it was. Few ingredients and it's organic! Sweet... 

There is not much info on the Bear. However,  Crofters does come from Canada and they really like Bears over there. 
Bears also enjoy picking berries and Bears are known to pick the best berries. 
So trust the Bear, they know!  




They have Three Kinds of JAMS:  PREMIUM SPREAD,  JUST FRUIT SPREAD, SUPERFRUIT SPREAD


FLAVORS like strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, apricot, four fruit, concord grape, Sicilian blood orange, morello cherry, mango, pomegranate. Our favorite is The Strawberry and the Four Fruit! It's amazing to use for a PB&J Sandwich. 


For more info about the company visit their website.
