Night at the Ross Perot Museum of Science was a blast! Every year they open the doors to adults only, offering wine, beer, food, music and fun. The DFW Black Professionals group sent out invites about this great event and I had to sign up and go. Hundreds came out in heels, boots, flats and some ladies wore cute dresses. Guys dressed in casual wear and some a little fancier.
Malorie and I got a chance to play a bird game, check out the exhibits and eat at the Wolfgang Puck cafe inside. I recommend the Turkey burger, and fries.
Overall it is a must see event, and must do place especially if you do have kiddos.

I was so excited to get a chance to host the NCAA Final Four Coach's mixer at FUSE Lounge in Downtown, Dallas.
Dozens came out to celebrate and honor the coach's who received special recognition for their work in the community.
I also had the opportunity to meet with people in the community and support a good organization that helps young boys make good decisions in life.

During the NCAA Tournament in Dallas, I had the opportunity to work the Red Carpet at one of the hottest events. The Kenny Smith Celebrity NCAA party at Winstons Supperclub in Uptown was filled with NBA, NFL, players, R&B Singers, Socialites and more!
Common and Chrisette Michelle performed, Dwele came out to show support. Kenny Smith and his wife discussed the importance of charity. Wade Smith of the Houstan Texans is not only co-owner of Winstons but also promoted his Wade Smith Foundation.
The coolest part of the event was that I was able to interview them all!!! Check out the photos from the red carpet below.

The hottest ticket in town during NCAA 2014 in Dallas was the the Pump Brothers party. Each year they host a free invite only NCAA Coach's party in the city of the tournament.
