The NBA Playoffs Return with Players Working On and Off the Court for Justice

After the NBA Playoffs historically came to a pause last Wednesday with Players refusing to Play as yet another Black man, JACOB BLAKE, was shot unjustly in the back by the Police, LEBRON, CP3, NBA Players reached out to BARACK OBAMA for advice.

OBAMA advised Players to play and maximize this opportunity to get their desired action items. Play resumed on Saturday under Commitments from the NBA & NBPA.

Pictured above is DENVER NUGGETS’ JAMAL MURRAY’S shoes. He says even though they are gone, they help him to find strength and to keep fight in this world.

The entire UTAH JAZZ team has now been registered to vote. Their DONOVAN MITCHELL has pledged $45k to the education of Jacob Blake’s children, which has been matched.
Countless efforts have been made by these NBA Players on and off the court. I applaud them and stand with them.

LUKA DON made his series Debut at just 21yrs before being eliminated and how he is already targeted by players.

We have a Game 7! Who you got? Murray or Mitchell? NUGGETS or JAZZ?

CELTICS are up 1 on the RAPTORS! KEMBA!

Are you ready for LAKERS vs CLIPPERS?! Stay tuned! πŸ€

Fling Back Friday to Rocking my Fabhijabeez Headband for Girls Night Out!

#fbf to rocking my Fabhijabeez Headband for Girls Night Out, because tonight I will be #InsideInside. (L-R: Gillian Jackson, Tiffany Simmonds, Gabrielle Burgess a.k.a Suga)

I FINALLY got handmade Headbands delivered from Fabhijabeez operating from Spanish Town. It’s been on my wish list for so long. I am happy I joined the Summer buzz and copped their New fave, Olivia Knot. It accentuated my high bun and I was able to wear a simple top because it uplifted my entire look. At least I felt like it did and that’s what is important ☺️

Fabhijabeez also has Turbans that create wonders on a bad hair day, Scarves and Durags, Scrunchies & more, ALL at reasonable prices!

If you want a variety of their items in one, they now have Glam and Treat Packages. Check out @fabhijabeez today! I can’t wait to wear the others πŸ˜πŸ’–

Cheers to the Weekend, Stay Safe and Stay Inside Suga Bears!

Suga’s Comments: 

It’s been a long time coming, but I finally got to revisit Seaside Dutchie over Independence weekend. The Service was even better and faster this time. The Appetizers were just as tasty and the Main was just as delicious. Value for money once again. I keep missing out on their Bread Pudding though!

Johnny Be Good ($700JMD) – Deep fried Johnny Cakes stuffed with Spicy Shrimp and Callaloo with Escovitched Mayonnaise
Saltfish Fritters ($700JMD) – Priory crispy Conch Fritters
Roasted Fish (Price based on the size of the Fish and served with your choice of sides)

Check out Seaside Dutchie’s current opening hours by giving them a call on the number below. They should be a must-stop whenever you are in St. Ann for some authentic Jamaican cuisine with their special twist or just some good seafood without a lengthy wait. Kudos to the Chef. Suga hopes to be back sooner and not later because Seaside Dutchie is still #SugaEndorsed. Cheers!

Plays of Last Night in the NBA Playoffs on what would have been Kobe’s 42nd Birthday!

Kobe couldn’t have asked for a better Birthday. The Lakers won Saturday night to ring it in and the future of the NBA, all under 25yrs were ballin’! Two 50-point games and a 40-point triple double! #ripmamba

Luka DončiΔ‡ (21 years old), who I consider to be the future of the NBA, scored 43 points and a triple double, leading the Mavs to level the series 2-2 versus the LA Clippers with a hell of a Buzzer-Beater! If you missed it or would just love to see it again, watch here:

Check out Donovan Mitchell (23 yrs) in action too here:

Who are your top 3 players under 25 in the Playoffs right now in order?!… Suga’s got:
1. Luka DončiΔ‡ (21 yrs)
2. Donovan Mitchell (23 yrs)
3. Jayson Tatum (22 yrs)
Look out for BOL BOL (20 yrs) in a year or 2!

Suga visits Toscanini’s former Chef at PG’s Restaurant & Wine Bar along Tower Isle!

After 20 years of loyal patronage by locals and overseas visitors, Harmony Hall was sold and Toscanini closed.

Toscanini’s Chef, Pierluigi Ricci, nicknamed PG, opened PG’s Restaurant & Wine Bar along Tower Isle in October of last year.

He was happy to find the space, which he continues to make his own. Suga missed out on her trip to Rome this year, but you don’t have to go to Rome to experience the vintage ambience PG has created.

PG’s menu is based on what’s available at sea or is farm to table, accompanied by an extensive Wine List.

The dishes served continue to be high quality, authentic Italian dishes. Their fresh homemade Pasta is one of the best on the island and along with Simos Bread and Catering, so is their Tiramisu.

For Independence Day Weekend two Fridays ago, Suga dined with family, a party of 4. See some of what we enjoyed here!

Escargot Bourguignon
Mozzarella Caprese Salad
Pappardelle Promodoro with grilled Shrimp (Shaved parmesan cheese & Tomato sauce)
Fresh catch of the day, Mahi-Mahi.
Tiramisu

We had Escargot Bourguignon, fresh Mozzarella Caprese Salad, Pappardelle Boscaiola (Bacon & fresh mushroom in a cream & tomato sauce), Pappardelle Promodoro with grilled Shrimp (Shaved parmesan cheese & rucola pesto) although they were out of Pesto so I received tomato sauce instead, Smoked Pork Chop in an apple cider sauce that was juicy to the bone and the fresh catch of the day, Mahi-Mahi.

Definitely value for money and worth the drive for Lunch one weekend if coming from Kingston. Pizza nights and rooftop dining may be on the horizon too.
