Hello everyone! I hope you and your families are doing well. It has been a rough couple of weeks for so many. I mean that is an understatement. Speaking about the attack in Las Vegas and the disaster that devastated the island of Puerto Rico and so many of its people; it has been a horrible time. Please keep these people in your prayers. I am going to try to uplift your spirit with some fun stuff. So hold on to my coat tail and let’s ride!

Jennifer Harrison recently celebrated her 70th birthday with her twin sons, Adam & Omar.

Let us start out with the Baltimore Pigtown Festival on October 14, in the 700-900 block of Washington Blvd. They are celebrating their 16th annual event with live music, arts and crafts, vendors, food trucks and a lot of fun. The festival time is 12 noon to 7 p.m. Look folks, if you haven’t been to one of these events, you have got to check it out.

Randy Dennis along with April Watts and Dollar Bill, host the “Odell’s Reunion Party in Pink & Black” event on Oct. 14, 9p.m. to 2 a.m. at the Patapsco Arena, 3301 Annapolis Road in Baltimore. For ticket information, call Will Franklin at 410-318-9657.

For my jazz lovers, Caton Castle will not let you down. I promise you, every Saturday from 6 p.m.-10 p.m., 20 S. Caton Avenue is a place you can enjoy good music by the best of the best musicians. The Castle also has good food, with a varied menu, from fried and baked chicken to fresh fried fish, greens, candied sweets, turkey wings, chicken breast stuffed w/crabmeat, roast beef, and every type of vegetable you can think of. Mannnnnnn, I got to stop! This is making me hungry. When you get there ask for Ron Scott, tell him I sent you to have dinner and see an unforgettable jazz show.

Caton Castle Lounge will host the 4th Annual Tribute to Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers, Oct. 14 6 p.m.-10 p.m., featuring Tim Green, Philip Harper, Allyn Johnson, Sam King, Kris Funn and John Lamkin, III.

Hey ya’ll! The AFRO American Newspapers is doing their thing, I should say, our thing by helping the community and hosting the Diversity in Careers and Education Expo. Whether you are an employer with job openings to fill or an educator recruiting new students, this event is the place where you can do both. This event will be held on Oct. 17 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum, 830 E. Pratt Street in Baltimore. For more information, just call Lenora Howze at 410-554-8271.

Check out the Pigtown Festival on Oct. 14. The street festival is held in the historic Pigtown neighborhood in Southwest Baltimore in the 700-900 Block of Washington Blvd., 12 noon to 7p.m. and it is free to the public.

I believe this is for the younger than me folks, because my Sphinx and Odell’s night club days are gone. And many of the partying folks that hung out with me back in the day are no longer with us. Soooooooooo! I guess The Odell’s Reunion Party in Pink and Black, hosted by MC’s Randy Dennis and April Watts, both radio personalities from 95.9, is starting a new thing with a twist! The theme for the evening is:Women of Distinction and Cancer Awareness. The event is October 14, 8 p.m.- 2 a.m., at the Patapsco Arena, 3301 Annapolis Road and the attire is Pink & Black to represent! This is for a good cause. You have to bring your own food (BYOF) but, there will be a cash bar, meaning under no circumstances can you bring own liquor in there. Mannnnnnnnnnnnnn! They will search you! For ticket information, call my buddy, Will Franklin at 410-318-9657.

One of my friends, Travis Winkey, Baltimore’s own, international fashion king is having a special modeling workshop. Orientation begins October 14. Bring your portfolio.
