I must share with you guys, New York is wonderful in the Fall. The air was crisp and the warm feelings were just great! I almost closed my practice and moved to “the city.” Of course this was not a pleasure trip, it was strictly business. This week, I( AskDrO) participated in my very first Media Tour. James Alan Belk, COO of the AskDrO.com company and my Publicist , Nikki Walker(of NWPR.com) were both stowaways for this fabulous trip. New York City was adorned and at her best this week. The atmosphere was charged and ready to receive this Atlanta native Dwight A. Owens, or the man that is better known as AskDrO or affectionately called Dr.O.
We had several interviews with Editors and of course, as many of you know, we stopped by the Wendy Williams Show. It was just great. She was nice and very friendly to her audience and her staff was just as collegial. I would definitely go back again. I did drop off my media kit, I hope they put it to use. If you believe in God, PRAY. However, if you don’t then” cross your fingers.” There were two other highlights of this trip. The second one was Shake Shack at 300 W. 44th. I had a small cup of ice-cream (one scoop only for you nasty dieters out there- LOL) and I thought that I had died and gone to heaven! It was of course expensive for one-scoop, but I would definitely fly back-in, take a yellow cab to the spot and then turn around and come back to Atlanta. Stop Drooling!
However, the highlight of my “media tour” was a Broadway Show at the Eugene O’ Neill Theatre in Times Square! The play FELA! WOW, this play is presented by Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter and Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. The featured stars on Wednesday was Kevin Mambo and Diva Patti LaBelle. (Patti will be there until January 2, 2012) This is a great play about the hottest musician in Africa, Fela Kuti. He owns a club in Lagos, Nigeria and the setiing is in the late 70’s. His club was actually called a “Shrine”. This play is for every African-American artist and non-artist with conscious! They cover all and the dancing and singing pierces the very soul. Oh My God, Ms. Patti LaBelle is outstanding! Freinds I had never seen Ms.LaBelle in person. I cried, I rejoiced, and I was moved to tears. I must say that each of you have to take a trip to New York City just to see this play and of course take in a meal in Times Square.
I Love New York,
