We are back again this week with some more cool mixes to keep you frosty and dry in this heatwave we have upon us this summer. First, we wanna big up everyone who enjoyed their 4th of July, and all of the neighborhood kids who had a safe and fun time with the fireworks shows in and around New York City.
Cookup, fry fish, and hot pepper sauce
To keep up with our theme of Taste the Caribbean and our appetite, we’ve decided to share a photo of what we are chowing down on while mixing in the studio. The beautiful DJ Nims whipped up some cookup, fry fish, and her own brand of hot pepper sauce.
Pepsi Cola Display in LIC
We also took some time this week to check out the LIC Food and Flea Market in Long Island City, New York. While on our way to the Macys 4th of July fireworks display. Definitely worth a trip if you can get lucky and get a good parking and avoid traffic while leaving LIC.
