Aretha Franklin

NIAGARA FALLS, Ontario — Aretha Franklin has some harsh words for a server who showed D-I-S-R-E-S-P-E-C-T by telling the Queen of Soul she wasn't allowed to eat her takeout inside the restaurant. A spokesman for Franklin says the situation unfolded Tuesday at a Johnny Rockets restaurant on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. The spokesman says Franklin ordered a hamburger after performing a sold-out show. But he says the server screamed at Franklin, saying she couldn't sit down to eat be ... Read More

associates Danielle Stiebel (seated, left) and Simone Bowie Jones for an SO portrait.

A visceral journey of Jamaica’s art evolution can be found on the hallowed walls of the storied downtown Kingston law firm Myers, Fletcher & Gordon. At 21 East Street, the firm’s legal eagles, their clients and art insiders had long appreciated and savoured the extensive art collection of The Rock’s great masters — Manley, Watson, Kapo, Abrahams, Parboosingh among the prolific roll call — accumulated over seven decades. The artistic beauty enveloping the offic ... Read More

Little Cottage In Negril

Sunday, July 27, 2014    

The grounds of the
two-acre private
estate are
manicured, dotted
with palms,
frangipani and
cotton trees.

Hidden behind an unassuming wall a few hundred metres down West End Road from the roundabout in the centre of Negril lies a private estate many have driven past countless times without suspecting that a piece of history has been seemingly frozen in time. Owned by Cherry and Craig Travis, who recall the way Negril used to be with not a small dose of nostalgia, the property has become a favourite of discerning travellers looking to step back in time and experience a cottage in Negril like the one ...

Novlet Green-Deans

WE bumped into Environmental Health Foundation (EHF) Group of Companies CEO Novlet Green-Deans at CRU Bar & Kitchen — in the company of BFF Dr Kurdell Espinosa (last week's Cocktails With guest) — on a recent visit to the popular watering hole's vino reserve.

I was not made a horse, And yet, I bear a burden, Like an ass. — Shakespeare, Richard, II, V, 5 You say that men are hanged, not hung? I verily believe, men are hung, Some well hung, And others not so well hung. — Doreen Grace Now, before any of the puritanical moral minority get on my case, let me remind you that a few years ago I wrote about The Vagina Monologues and got much acclaim for it. And it was mostly the ladies who sang the praises too, saying that it was bold and ... Read More

VOWS - The Music of Love

Newley weds Mr & Mrs André Smith

A Little Spot in Kingston Love is a curious paradox. It is infamously difficult to find, but can happen almost anywhere -- be it on a grand Parisian boulevard or an obscure little verandah in the country. André Smith and Nicole Hines perhaps weren't looking for love when they started running into each other at their regular eatery. They were students at the University of the West Indies when they met, though they mostly knew each other through mutual friends. "At that time neither one o ... Read More
