As writers, we get pitched by PR folks all the time. Let me repeat: ALL THE TIME. Last week, the good folks at Hennessy, Akoo and Gild Group invited me to a cool event to celebrate writers and bloggers. #MediaLove at Gran Morsi was hosted by Datwon Thomas (Editor-in-Chief at Vibe).
Datwon is OG journo whose resume spans XXL, King and The Source. He's a personal friend and an all-around down-to-earth dude, so it's great to see him heading the team over at Vibe. Great food (the sheep's milk ricotta was AH-MAZING), great industry convos and great night.
