32 FLAVAS OF SUGA SHACK GOODNESS!!!! SUGA SHACK GIRLS BURLESQUE SHOW AT THE BOP STOP EXPOSÉ

LISTEN!!! Y’all been with me long enough to know my favorite movies! Jackie’s Back, Save The Last Dance, Honey and Burlesque!!! And I always wonder, why aren’t there any burlesque groups or clubs anywhere but in LA and NYC! Well lemme inform y’all!!! These girls got it GOING!!! The Suga Shack Girls lit the Bop Stop here in Cleveland UP last night! 

Now as if I didn’t have to change clothes at work, put my freakum fit on, and fly clear across the city to get over to Ohio City where the Bop Stop is located, THANK GOD the show didn’t start till 7. So I’m finding parking, had a great spot BTW, walked less than 500ft to the spot and its a cute ambiance going on in there! I live for a stage. Any stage I don’t care how big, small or where it is! That’s just the dancer in me talking. So I paid my coins got me a seat under some good selfie lighting cause I was giving Frank Ocean teas tonight OK! and proceeded to wait for the show to start. 

So there’s a live band playing their faces, hands and wrists OFF and I’m bopping in my chair to some smooth jazz and all at once I hear a familiar bass line. I’m like…..”I know this song?” At first I’m thought it was “Look But Don’t Touch” by Tiana from Empire. Then I listen closer and I’m like BITCH THIS IS FREAKUM DRESS!!!! So I’m tweaking in my chair and in struts three girls in they getting ready to get ready to go somewhere clothes giving BOOMKACK all OVER! So I’m in the corner screaming “YAAAAASSSSS” like ain’t nobody sitting right in front of me! These girls is dipping it and doing it! 

Now lemme tell y’all so it ain’t no secret. I know two of the Suga Shack Girls…. matter fact I think I know 3. But that won’t make my opinion of the show bias cause WHAT we say it like we mean it here. The Experience was as close to a burlesque club as I’m gone get right now and they delivered! My favorite number was probably the finale. They closed with “Burlesque” from the movie of the same title and I GAGGED!!!! Lisa Love and that shimmery shimey shake ensemble was DOING IT! All the numbers were incredibly executed and delivered with just the right amount of sexy to not go from burlesque to full on STRIP CLUB! 

And ladies (and some men no judging here) there are men in the shack too! One thing I really appreciated was they didn’t just use the guys as props like some dance numbers do. They guys were actually dancing! 

The mistress of the shack Lady Slay also known to me as my dance mama Ms. King got up there and did her THANG with her flags. Just twirling all over the place serving life with no parole! 

I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I absolutely cannot wait until the next show because now that I’m a full blown stage 3 diabetic, I need MORE SUGA!!!

I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Blog Award!

So I got this nomination a while ago and been meaning to get to it but haven’t really had the time or energy for that matter. I think every one who blogs will agree, contrary to popular belief, this isn’t just a walk in the park. Especially if you’re like me and want everything to be perfect before you hit that publish button. 

But nonetheless I’m honored that my fellow bloggers nominated my messy ass for this award and I will graciously and humorously accept. So with that here are my responses! I love you for reading!!! Xoxoxo

Q&A  for Tré Tonio Of The Library Radio

1. How long have you been blogging?

-The Library became this edifice during my time at the Ohio Center for Broadcasting where we were FORCED to make a blog kinda to advertise ourselves to possible employers. Well I decided, I’m not doing that! I’m going to soak up as much knowledge in this blog course as I can, and make this into a branding situation. So that was maybe 3 years ago. And it’s been a mess ever since!

2. Why did you start your blog?

-I started because I always liked writing. I like writing as much as I like talking. So when I got the opportunity to have my own Internet radio show on North Coast Underground I said well you need something visual to go along with this show. And I already had the concept of The Library down so it was natural to transition from a radio show to a blog. 

3. How often do you post to your blog?

-I’m embarrassed to say! Not as often as I should. The thing about my business is in pop culture, there’s something ALWAYS happening! I would LOVE nothing more in life but to sit and post about celebrity mess all day EVERYDAY but the gag is bills are due too! So until my platform reaches a place where I can comfortably blog frequently and also live, I do the best I can. Listen Tammy (the leasing office) don’t care nothing about yo dreams and aspirations. She want her rent on the 1st! 

4. How do you promote your blog?

-Social media is the biggest way. The thing about The Library and how it got started is actually in a way a promotional tactic. Listen Story time! So I worked at this casino that will remain nameless! And I basically was a glorified bar back and my service well was the POPPIN well OK! It was always stocked, lit, we in here gossiping, throwing shade, just making the best of our how many ever hours we had to work. So my well we began to call The Library cause honey I was always in there READING the girls DOWN! Every person that came into my well will remember The Library and take that with them. And then they’ll tell somebody, “lemme tell you about this fool I used to work with.” That’s how you spread the word and leave a lasting impression with people that they’ll never forget.

5. Do you monetize your blog? If so how?

-I NEED TO!!! Listen once I figure it out oh believe it will be! After YEARS of dealing with the shady ass monetizing system over at that place where you upload videos that will also remain nameless, I’m exhausted! But I do have plans on monetizing eventually. 

6. What has been the hardest thing about blogging?

-The TIME!! This takes time! And like I said up there contrary to what people believe, we’re not just sitting here writing words. There are thoughts and emotions that are put into these post and if you’re doing it with integrity it’ll take a respectable portion of your day. 


7. What has been the most rewarding thing about blogging?

-When People ask me did I post something about a certain situation or topic. My site is fact based but what makes me so appealing is I sprinkle into those facts how I feel and my opinions. It gives a comedic relief and it brightens people’s day to read a post and get a good laugh. I’m essentially an entertainer. 

8. What is your advice for up and coming bloggers?

-PROOF READ PLEASE!!!! READ IT THREE TIMES!!! GIVE IT TO SOMEBODY TO READ THEN READ IT AGAIN BEFORE YOU PUBLISH! I AM THE GRAMMAR POLICE!

9. What apps or plugins do you use to enhance your blog?

-Twitter, IG and Facebook all TheLibraryRadio

10. How did you choose your domain and hosting site and are you happy with them?

-I use WordPress because that’s what I was trained on in broadcasting school and I like it. I haven’t explored other hosting sites but it’s affordable, get my message across and I like it. My domain had to match my show title just for continuity sake and because I absolutely love it!
