On November 5th I was invited to cater a really cool event. Delicious Vinyl celebrated the release of  their new Delicious Vinyl DJ app for iPhone.

The event was at Freak City, an ART MUSIC STYLE gallery with hybrid retail space. Its located on Sunset Strip right below the Delicious Vinyl headquarters.

So anyways, back to the story at hand, Perfection is perfected, so I’ma let ’em understand from a young BUGG’s perspective that I was there to cater the Delicious Vinyl DJ premier event. I wanted to make finger foods, things people could eat and enjoy while dressed to the 9’s without losing any sexy. Here are some flicks from the night.

That night I was planning to feed 100 people at SOUL FOOD, an event in LA honoring Def Jef. Here’s what I had on the menu:
