VSB in NYC, Explained

(Photo courtesy of Jonathan Newton/Washington Post; Flyer courtesy of Panama Jackson/VSB)

Hey man, what’s happening? 

Nothing, just bhillin. The usual.

Y’all going to NYC? 

It’s in the title.

You right. You right. So, why are you going to NYC? I hear it’s the concrete jungle where dreams are made of. 

Damon and I are heading to the big city of dreams to meet and greet all of our newest co-workers with The Root/Gizmodo Media. It suggests to be a jolly and merry good time with food, drinks, and merriment. We’re looking forward to meeting our new co-defendents and what not in this new venture for us.

You know what you guys should do? Since you’re going to be in NYC? You should have a meetup. 

Bruh.

What? For real for real. You should.

That’s exactly what we’re doing. In fact, on the very flyer up there that says “vsb in nyc” we state where we’ll be around 830pm. We’re doing dinner there – we hear it’s awesome – and since Damon and I are muy lazy, we’re like, “why leave, why not just invite everybody to come where WE are!?” So we’re gonna be mackin’ and hangin’ at Burger and Lobster in the Flatiron district on Friday night (that’s August 4th) at 830pm.

It’s like you read my mind. So meta. What can we expect if we come out see you guys? Free drinks? Lapdances? Firebreathers?

Probably a solid mix of none of that shit. I mean, it’s entirely possible that a round of shots might be on us. It is a celebration after all, and what’s a celebration without shots. In DC, I bought a round of shots and handed them out to friends and strangers alike in celebration. Almost nobody said “thank you” either. But like Joe and Chico DeBarge sang to us….life has no guarantees.

Did you really just name drop Chico DeBarge?

Yes. Yes I did. He should send me a thank you card.

Are there any after Burger and Lobster plans? 

Listen, I’m up for anything. We have a solid crew of folks in NYC that we’re always happy to see and hang with and who allegedly believe in the turn up. But who knows where the night may take us. But mostly, we’d just like to see as many folks as possible who support and helped get us to where we are today. If that’s you, we’d love to meet you.

Do you look out for people who really want to come say hello but pretend like they aren’t there to see you guys and kind of stand off in the corner, or perhaps leave and then say, “hey, sad I missed you!”

Yes. We look out for people like that. If that’s you, I promise, we do not bite. Come, commiserate, meet some new friends. Damon and I are the friendliest chaps you don’t know, and despite his recent glow up, Damon hasn’t gotten too big for his britches. He’s still the same ole approachable G. Shouts to Ginuwine.

Well, I’m convinced. See you Friday.

See you Friday. By the way, who are you?

Panama Jackson

Panama Jackson is pretty fly (and gorgeous) for a light guy. He used to ship his frito to Tito in the District, but shipping prices increased so he moved there to save money. He refuses to eat cocaine chicken. When he's not saving humanity with his words or making music with his mouth, you can find him at your mama's mama's house drinking her fine liquors. Most importantly, he believes the children are our future. You can hit him on his hitter at panamadjackson@gmail.com.

  • 44isnojoke

    What’s today??? Oh I know it’s Wednesday!!! 2 whole days before the meet up! Texas folks won’t be able to make…cuz…FLIGHTS! ??

    • MsCee

      All the Texas peeps should rent a party bus and road trip this thang!

      • Looking4Treble

        Cosign that!

      • miss t-lee

        Road trip? we should’ve left yesterday…lol

        • Cheech

          Google maps says it’s 25 hours from Houston. Drive in shifts–you’ve got time.

          • miss t-lee

            Oh no, not I.

    • miss t-lee

      They don’t want us to take over.

    • Michelle is my First Lady

      Frontier airlines has $29 flights.
      Fly at your own risk.

      • BrothasKeeper

        Does that come with or without a pressurized cabin?

        • miss t-lee

          issa naw

        • cedriclathan

          They put wings on a Greyhound Bus and roll it down hill to get up to speed to take off.

      • LMNOP

        $29 flights? Wow that’s cheap.

        • miss t-lee

          By the time you’re through paying for everything a la carte you could’ve hopped on SW for cheaper.

          • LMNOP

            I suspected that was too good to be true lol

            • miss t-lee

              My cousin flew them when he visited last month. You have to pay extra for a reclining seat.

              • LMNOP

                Lol, wow. Why does part of me respect that level of petty though? I’m imagining them selling drinks, $1.50 for a “cola” and then they come around with a family size bottle of room temperature Shasta cola and tell you it’ll be another 1.50 if you want a cup to drink your soda out of. And then another $2 if you want ice.

                • miss t-lee

                  LMAO
                  Just Google “frontier reviews” and you can see the shenanigans.

  • Yellow Tail

    Wow so you guys finally come out to NYC right after I left. At least I made it out to the ATL meetup

    • Kat

      I missed that one. I suck.

    • Michelle is my First Lady

      I wasn’t in ATL then. Boo.

  • See you Friday. By the way, who are you?

          I want to see a pic of your outfit before you go

  • Looking4Treble

    Panama, you and Damon must come thru H-Town and do a meetup. H3ll, make it a nationwide tour. #VSBOnTheMove

    • miss t-lee

      Say it.

      I’m gonna go ahead and say that nothing STAYS in a global city of 8 million+

  • Diego Duarte

    “Nothing can stop us”.

    Except aggressively unseasoned chicken.

    No need to show me the door, I’ll see my way out.

  • Tell Agatha I said hi.

    • Diego Duarte

      Pretty sure Agatha says she’s still got a restraining order Cogito.

      • Sanitizer Gang 4Life

        • NonyaB?

          “Sanitizer Gang”? I hesitate to ask for this backstory!

          • BM, Superman

            What’s a funny story about you?

            • NonyaB?

              Not for your consumption.

              • BM, Superman

                No problem. You good fam? How is life? What do you do? Can we get brunch?

                • NonyaB?

                  I’m great and life is swell. I work for the People’s Bureau and have Illuminati membership (so, no mortal lunches).

                  • Tam
                    • NonyaB?

                      Oh, Tamstigator. LOL

                    • Tam

                      To be on the safe side ask Ceddy, that’s all I’m saying

                    • NonyaB?

                      I see. *Paging El Cedrico* Seems @disqus_twpAX6FIvt:disqus also knows, perhaps he’II clue me in…

                    • Tam

                      If Ceddy appears I will ask him to drop you a line

                    • cedriclathan
                    • cedriclathan

                      Well, sometimes Scrappy’s horse throws a shoe and the mail don’t get delivert, but, other than that, Scrappy be a fine upstanding gen’man.

                    • NonyaB?

                      What does that have to do with why Agatha may have a restraining order against “Sanitizer Gang 4Life” Cogito? That’s what I was asking after.

                    • cedriclathan

                      Take the brunch date. Scrappy makes a horrible POW. If he knows, just a whee bit of torture and he will sing like a canary.

                    • NonyaB?

                      I see Tamstigator got you outchea answering the wrong questions. My ONLY inquiry was: Why @disqus_FKNwxHRHyG:disqus’s repping “Sanitizer Gang 4Life” and how he won an Agatha restraining order. I ain’t T-Lee and brunch ain’t in the mix. Good day, sir.

                    • Tam

                      Lol. I see BM asking you for a brunch date and I thought to warn a sister. See what thanks I get.

                    • NonyaB?
                    • Tam

                      Your eyes are always out beholding the good and evil. Morning dear

                    • NonyaB?

                      Someone must watch out for the people. Morning!

                    • cedriclathan

                      My bad. I though Scrappy was creeping.

                    • Diego Duarte

                      Nah I don’t know but I got my suspicions. This is Cogito we’re talking about after all. Doesn’t take much reading in between the lines to detect his casanova attitudes.

                      Though I am curious about this Sanitizer Gang as well.

                    • Tam

                      * fap fap fap*

                    • Diego Duarte

                      Okay, now it makes perfect sense and I’m sorry I even asked.

                    • Tam

                      Lol. How could you have missed that one?

                    • Diego Duarte

                      #NotAllMen use hand sanitizer.

                    • Tam

                      Paper towels do just as well I admit.

        • BM, Superman

          Were you bullying folks?

          • I was helping people keep their balls from stinking. I’m a humanitarian.

            • BM, Superman

              Lol. You’re a funny guy.

    • Y’all got beef?

  • Kat

    D*mmit man…I’m going to be in NYC on the 18th. Ya’ll wanna come back?
