I spent this past weekend with my lovely man in the great city of St. Louis!!! I must say we had a great time and made some precious memories!!!
Saturday we went to see the play, CANFIELD DRIVE. This play was based upon the assassination of Michael Brown by a White Ferguson County police officer, as well as the social injustice that takes place among the African American community in America.
CANFIELD DRIVE was so enlightening and rich with the history of how White America views Black people.
I’ve learned that the hardships our ancestors faced in America still exist among Black people today!! Black people still face economic discrimination, we’re less likely to get the high ranking corporate jobs, and more likely to die at the hands of White supremacist. It sadden me to see how insensitive White people are to the problems of Black Americans. I personally feel it will never end.
In 2019, Black Americans have been afforded more opportunities than our ancestors. We can attend any college in the world, start our own businesses, and even work corporate level jobs. But, getting into college, starting businesses, climbing the corporate ladder is harder for us than it is a White person. It’s hard for us to get funding for our business than whites, and It’s takes us years to be able to become the VP or CEO of a Fortune 500 company.
I thoroughly enjoyed this play and will attend this play again!!!
Before the play we went to a nice Sushi restaurant named Cafe Mochi. We had the shrimp tempura roll and vegetable tempura. I thoroughly enjoyed the vegetable tempura, the shrimp roll was just okay to my taste. I’ve had better sushi that would make me want to eat sushi everyday.
On Sunday we enjoyed a great day of worship. Later that evening we went to a fine dining Italian restaurant name Bortelino’s. Let’s say this foodie absolutely enjoyed the fried calamari, fried spinach, house salad with creamy Italian dressing, and my entree was veal with sautéed vegetables on top, and a baked potato.
I almost forgot!! We had a wonderful breakfast at a place called Egg and I breakfast and lunch restaurant. I have never heard of, or been to this place before!! It was so good!!! They even had oatmeal pancakes 😋😋😋 that was my first choice, but I decided to get the ham, spinach, tomato 🍅 omelette with cheddar cheese 🧀. As my side I had the lemon vinegerette greens, and the breakfast potatoes. This was a delicious breakfast!!! The honey had a steak and egg 🍳 scramble!!!
St.Louis was a great dining experience and a great entertainment experience!! #stlouis #stlouisdining #stlouisentertainment
