The San Francisco 49ers Vernon Davis recently celebrated the Grand Opening of his very own Gallery 85 art gallery at Santana Row in San Jose. On the Flipside, in association with Bay Tiger Productions, was there for exclusive coverage of the star-studded event! Press play for some of the red carpet highlights!! And visit On The Flipside for more exclusive video segments.
A great weekend in the Bay with some of my favorite folks! Friday my baby sister Alison graduated with her ABSN (Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing) from Samuel Merritt University!! It had been a grueling year with lots of sacrifice, but now she’s an RN!! Here I am placing a (graduation) lei on her before the ceremony!
Following her “pinning we had a dinner at Kincaid’s in Jack London Square – their crab and artichoke dip is our FAV!! Check out this photo of Alison giving a speech..she gets “emotional! hehe
Here she is with her crew..they’ve been her close friends since she her age was a single digit! 🙂
What’s a celebration without some sweets? Ordered these “nurse” themed cupcakes from Marley’s Treats…
Alison’s proud fan club – Ade, me, T and my Dad!
Saturday was the “We Believe vs. Dubs” charity reunion game (aka GS Warriors game) at SJSU…
So, I decided to do a “hair” blog because I got a hair cut, then my sister Alison did…and my other sister Adrienne just had a digital perm done. I’ve been hanging out in my old stomping grounds (Bay Area) for a couple days now…went down to San Jose yesterday and made a stop at Santana Row to get my ‘do done at W’s Salon with my longtime stylist William.
As you can see I’ve added some bangs..I just thought it’d be fun until they grow out…my hair pretty much grows like a weed, so why not? The one thing my sisters and I are blessed with is GOOD HAIR! We’ve all been complimented numerous times on our nice, thick manes…or asked if we have extensions or if it’s our own hair! ha
Yup..it’s all ours and there’s plenty to go around! Today we went to Japantown in San Francisco to visit Arty Salon where my…. sister Adrienne had just gotten a “digital perm”….
….and Alison aka Bologna was going in for a “downsizing!” 🙂
Alison has a super THICK head of hair and her texture has the MOST body…I was wondering how the stylist was going to make it without taking an “arm” break! lol I mean the shear amount of hair being taken off her head was so amazing..I had to take a photo! Weave anyone??
Awww..but the finished product was oh so full of lovely locks!!
It’s always good times with my sisters….
And after all the mane’s were in check…we had crepes!
Anjelah Johnson is making a hometown appearance in San Jose tomorrow evening, Saturday 11.28.09!! If you are in the BAY and don’t have plans, I’d would STRONGLY suggest you check out her show and make a night of it! She is incredibly talented and beautiful, not to mention funny! It’s an all ages show at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts, and you can purchase tickets through Live Nation – http://www.livenation.com/edp/eventId/409489
I won’t be able to make this show, since I had to take off from the BAY, but I did manage to catch up with her and hang out for a few at Santana Row, while our locations crossed! She is one of my favorite friends and it’s so exciting to see her WINNING with all her hard work, faith and dedication!
You may know her as the ever popular Bon Qui Qui…
…or for her “Nail Salon” skit! Be on the lookout for her as she is quickly rising to the top! Her 1 hour Comedy Central special debuts December 28 and this Christmas, you can catch her starring role in Alvin and the Chipmunks 2! She also has another movie in the pipeline with Forest Whitaker and George Lopez, so don’t sleep on her…go out and watch her live this weekend or when she visits a city near you!! I’ll also have interviews with her On The Flipside and for a new show I’m debuting on the Cheer Channel, so stay tuned!!
