Sunday Sofrito: March 22nd, 2009

Mi gente…

Just wanted to check in and say hi, it is a very lazy Sunday and I am sitting in front of the computer planning out this week. As many of you know, we will be celebrating the second anniversary of the Capicu Poetry & Cultural Showcase this coming week in Brooklyn, NY. 

Capicu Poetry is an amazing project that was conceived by the infamous Papo Swiggity and I. In less than 2 years we have accomplished so much…but as we stand here looking at the two years ahead, we know we have so much more to do. 

We hope that you will join us in this celebration, you can get all the details about the incredible line up we have for this night on our Facebook event page.

Aside from that I wanted to try something that two of my blogging friends do (and do well) which is offer my readers a lil taste of what I am checking out on the web and we will call it "Sunday Sofrito".
