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.

For all of yall who don’t know… there kicks ARE HIP HOP! This shoe brand was created by Rich One, a graffiti artist from the legendary NASA crew. Its nice to see that he took his art from the streets and turned it into a worldwide phenomenon while still maintaining his integrity.
