Last night was my good friend Kenecia’s Birthday bash at aloft Hotel’s new sleek lounge and bar WXYZ in Harlem. This modern hotel recently opened in Harlem and it is amazing. The decor is modern and edgy, the food and drinks were delicious and the crowd young and fashionable. This was definitely the perfect spot for Kenecia’s party. We had a great time
Sheena and Kenecia got the party started in the awesome hotel room at aloft with some wine and delicious spring rolls from the lounge!
Our good friend Atim showed up. She is a talented model and actor. Check her out Atim Online
Alicia and I decided to play a game of pool. She beat me but only by one!

I had a great time last night. The atmosphere was just perfect. I think I will be making more visits to aloft! Kenecia was very excited and I’m glad I got to spend this special birthday with her. I met Kenecia and Sheena at church. I had just moved to Harlem, just graduated from NYU and didn’t have many friends. I vowed that day that I’d make a new friend and that morning at church I met the two of them.
It was one of the best things that’s happened to me since I moved to NY. Kenecia had this leopard dress on and I said to myself: this fashion maven and I are going to be friends! Kenecia is a very talented human being, make-up artist and a talented lyricist and actor. This girl is going to be MAJOR!
Its funny, I’ve actually met most of my good friends at church including Stephanie and Alicia.
It’s hard to make good friends in this fast city which is why I love living in Harlem. It’s a little slower than downtown NYC and feels a little more like home (North Carolina) to me. I also think its great that new establishments like aloft and wxyz lounge are popping up all over Harlem.
