What better way than to start off the weekend with a 73 degrees day! This is only the tip of the iceberg.
This weekend, I have opportunity to practice the French I studied from high school to college. Too bad I don’t remember much of it. *smh* Maybe it will come back as I immerse myself in the culture.
This Friday, DJ Stylus, one of my favorite DJs, will be opening for Make The Girl Dance at the Smithsonian Francophonie Festival. The festival, from March 1 to April 1, 2010, highlights the cultural diversity of the Francophone world. The District’s representatives in French-speaking embassies, governments and institutions meet all year-long to coordinate this festival.

The main event that everyone is talking about, and was featured in an on-line article in Jet Magazine is “When Paris Comes to Harlem.” As I have stated before, Risikat Okedeyi, founder of Lil So So Productions, produces the best social and cultural events in the District. This year, set in 1926,”When Harlem Came to Paris” features portrayals of real life writers and musical artists from the famed Harlem Renaissance era. There will be food, drinks, live music and surprise performances all night long. I am so excited to attend this event!
