GAL APPROVED. Go See Shaft! Drink Wine! Brush For Pearly Whites!By Maureen Martin | June 15, 2019 | Gal Approved
SEE. Shaft is out and “It’s your duty to see this movie.” The iconic badass private detective walking the streets of Harlem has returned. In this 2019 sequel, we are introduced to Shaft’s son. JJ — a.k.a. John Shaft Jr. (Usher) — a cybersecurity expert with a degree from MIT, seeking to uncover the truth behind his best friend’s untimely death, and he needs an education only his dad can provide. Absent throughout JJ’s youth, the legendary locked-and-loaded John Shaft, played by Samuel Jackson, agrees to help his son navigate Harlem’s heroin-infested underbelly. It’s a fun ride blending comedy, shootouts, slut shaming, endless cursing, sex jokes, pop cultural references and lots of swagger. Run, duck, groove and go see Shaft. You’ll Dig it. The New Line Cinema’s action comedy is directed by Tim Story. The film also stars Jessie T., Regina Hall, Cliff “Method Man” Smith and Richard Roundtree, the original John Shaft.
GO. One of the most hotly anticipated parties on the Summer social calendar, The Vinho Verde Wine Experience returns once more for ever-flowing wine + food bites from some of NYC’s hottest restaurants. We will be enjoying live music, endless curated Vinho Verde wine, cocktails and mingling. This all happens on the second floor at Eventi Hotel. And it’s all for the price of great Saturday Brunch.
