WHAT UP DOE
How did your week go for you? I think the time change kind of threw me off this week. I’ve been staying up later at night than I should and as a result, I wake up feeling very tired.
There is one good thing about losing an hour: more daylight! So for that, I am very thankful! I can’t wait for when the sun sets after 9 P.M. It will give us more time to stay outdoors and get fresh air.
Here are a few highlights from the week:
- Alicia Keys New Memoir to Be Published by Oprah
- Nonstop– A New Family Entertainment Center in Warren, MI
- Winston Duke on BuzzFeed’s Thirst Tweets
- Upcoming Interview with Chef Quiana Broden

I can’t wait to read More Myself when it comes out!
2. UPCOMING INTERVIEW WITH DETROIT CHEF QUIANA BRODEN OF COOKING WITH QUE
I am excited about next week’s upcoming blog post! I will be featuring an interview with Chef Quiana “Que” Broden. She is the founder of Cooking with Que, “a place where Vegans and Meat Eaters coexist.”
Que is on a mission to teach us how to “eat to live” by introducing plant-based meals into our everyday lives. In my interview with Que, she shares tips to help you if you’re thinking about transitioning to a plant-based lifestyle.
I always enjoy talking with Que because she is such a happy person full of life and love. I think you will enjoy the interview. Stay tuned!
3. ALL OF THESE THIRSTY LADIES CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF ACTOR WINSTON DUKE
Jordan Peele’s new thriller Us is set to premiere soon. Friday, March 22nd to be exact, and everyone can’t stop talking about it. Do you plan on seeing the film?
BuzzFeed recently featured actor Winston Duke (who plays the character Gabe Wilson) in their humorous “Thirst Tweets”.
All I have to say about it is: I’m going to need some of you ladies to take a cold shower because you got it bad for Winston! Kind of reminds me of all of the thirsty women who call Keith Sweat on his radio show The Sweat Hotel, talking ’bout “I love you, Keith!” LOL!

4. A NEW FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT CENTER IS COMING TO WARREN, MI AND YOUR KIDS ARE GOING TO LOVE IT!
Today, I had the opportunity to take a “hard hat tour” of the new Allegiant Nonstop family entertainment center in Warren. The new entertainment center will feature arcade games, laser tag, black light mini-golf, go-karts, bowling, virtual reality, and more!
There’s even going to be a toddler play area that will feature a bounce house and a huge climbing gym. I know my little ones and teens are going to love Nonstop!
Allegiant Nonstop is slated to open at the end of April. I’m excited to check out the new entertainment center and share my family’s experience with you! I’ll keep you posted!
HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND! ! JENNIFER XOXO
