Re: “Why do the black shows on the Food Network suck ass?

A couple of things: first, while Marcus Samulesson may be Harlem based, he definitely isn't black, nor does the dishes that he makes, speak for the majority of African-American culture. As for the Neely's, part of what made their show a success (in the beginning) was the fact that they were affectionate. They helped portray a positive image of not only successful marriage in the African-American community, but they also showed that we can own successful food franchises that are not modeled on what another culture dictates to us. As I said, this was part of what made them successful in the beginning. Over time, their dishes changed to be some of the same dishes that are seen on other shows. Yes healthy eating does need to be shown and promoted, but BBQ is a big part of the African-American community. No one complained when Paula Deene cooked dishes with massive amounts of grease or butter in them, so why complain about the Neelys making BBQ? That's what "brought them to the dance" so it only made since to perfect it while occasionally introducing new dishes. As for Sunny Anderson, I thought her show was good in the beginning but the same thing happened to her that happened to the Neely's as far as dishes goes: she changed so much that her dishes no longer even resembled what we actually make in the African-American community. I agree in a sense with what was said about Big Daddy's House, as far as the focus not matching the title of the show, or the drastic changes in dishes from week to week. Despite this, I still couldn't figure out why his show was cancelled.

Re: “Recapping the best of beers

You left out Thirsty Nomad, who are predicting an "early 2016" opening, across I-77 from OMB and Sugar Creek. In brewery time, that's probably "late 2016 if they're lucky", but still.

Re: “Why do the black shows on the Food Network suck ass?

I really like the last food network star winner Eddie Jackson but they stuck with him possibly the worst show yet. "BBQ Battle" or something like that has absolutely zero focus. Eddie's got a great personality but apparently his only direction was to be "fired up ex-jock". What a waste.

Re: “Why do the black shows on the Food Network suck ass?

As a Magazine Publisher that focuses on Our Black culture, We are the best cooks in the World. Unlike most observations and intents, if these Chef's show productions were focused to the intent of making their shows successful, it would be! Sunny, Aaron, The Neely's etc... We know the Game.. So, they ran a good course, Hang in there Sunny.. We got chu sista... As for Us in general, we must continue to redirect our attention towards our success. Own your networks, your businesses, your talents and platforms.. and change the paradigm....Period!.. W>NF Las Vegas!

Re: “Seasonal release blues

For anyone who got shut out of the Cold Mountain sweepstakes, give Anderson Valley Winter Solstice or Great Lakes Christmas Ale a shot.

Re: “Planting the seed

Shawn's food is truly amazing. The flavors are impressive to vegan and the non-vegan alike. We love the pop up dinners and Shawn designed the menu and was our chef at a recent fundraiser event. We have never heard so many rave reviews from our attendees. Can't wait to have him back for our next event.

Re: “Planting the seed

Shawn is an awesome chef! Could almost make me a vegan but not quite yet! His desserts are delicious!

Re: “Twin brothers eye new South End venture

Really looking forward to this place! However, can it really be considered the "edge of South End"? Isn't it in a traditional commercial strip down South Blvd?

It is unfortunate that people can post anonymously!!! Serious accusations from a nameless faceless hater? I have been there! If you can't identify yourself, why should you be allowed to trash someone's reputation? Haters gonna Hate!!! Feel the Love of the Dirty Hippie instead:)

Re: “Twin brothers eye new South End venture

I have had the pleasure of knowing Vinny for a short time frame. He has been insturmental in turning around the Brush'nBeats, third Friday event at Charlotte Art League. Every time Vinny walks in the building he brings a level of energy and creativity I personally enjoy. I look forward to supporting the Dirty Hippie.
