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.

I gotta say, Thursday June 4th was a good day… No barkin’ from the dog, no smog and Junebugg cooked a meal with no hog! I woke up quick at about 7:30 and started cooking my Cee-lo Greens. 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:
I was selling all that with a slice of watermelon for only $7!!! Here are some happy eaters from the night…
For everybody that saved room we had IceT with free refills all night long and Ol’ Dirty Custard for dessert
In addition to amazing food and a dope line up, SOUL FOOD also had live silkscreening by Listen Clothing
I didn’t get to see much of the show at all cause we were around the corner, but here are some sights from the event
