I’m currently curating a mini documentary, “The New Mecca", which captures the urban fashion/street wear culture in Columbus, OH. The project is centered around one of the Midwest’s finest sneaker and clothing lifestyle boutiques, Sole Classics. Many are unaware of the budding fashion scene in Columbus, but not for long.

This weeks meal of the week comes from Due Amici, located on Gay St. (off High St.) downtown.  I enjoyed a very nice brunch meal: Poached eggs on top of salmon cakes, spicy hollandaise sauce, and house potatoes.  Shweww.  I'll definitely be dining at Due Amici again in the near future.  Enjoy the photos.  More photos at mrkingjd.com

How often do you see a line this long for a Vans release?

Sole Classics + Vans Vault "Carmen" Release

Sole Classics, the only premier sneaker / clothing / lifestyle boutique in Columbus Ohio has teamed up with Vans (Vault™) to design a shoe.  The shoe, nicknamed "Carmen"  is almost here!  The official release date has not been anounced yet, but I can assure you the shoe will be releasing sooner than later.  To build anticipation for the shoe release; I have been wearing some of my favorite Vans every day, I call this the "Countdown To Carmen".  I'm about 7 shoes in so far.  How many will I wear before the shoes are released?  Follow me on Instagram to find out.

Countdown To Carmen: 7 Shoes In...

I enjoyed simple meals this week, but my favorite meal was this breakfast burrito from Tasi Cafe.  The burrito featured chorizo, eggs, cheese, peppers, and some other delicious stuff!  It also came with a side of fresh fruit, you can never go wrong w/fresh fruit.  I added a side of "sweet & spicy bacon", it was off the chain. Creme soda by Boyland, super smooth and tasty. Definitely a meal I will be enjoying again some time soon. Enjoy the pics.  Until next time.  Thank you Lord.

I got a chance to check out the 2013 graduation at OSU yesterday.  I wasn't going to go because Obama was the speaker and I knew it would be a headache with all the people and high security, but of course my conscience got the best of me, I owed it to my friends to be there for support.  Glad I went, it was a great day for graduation.  Congrats to everyone.  On to the next!

Congrats to the 2013 class of The Ohio State University
