Don’t Be A Dick – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans
Remy Robert (rhymes with Amy Snowbear) is, among other things, a professional matchmaker at a new startup called Tawkify where you can get hooked up with another human by another human, not an app.
There are a lot of layers and nuances to this – as you will hear in this conversation – but Remy (aka Marshmallow) distills the the sum of her knowledge of relationships into this simple admonition: Don’t be a dick. Apparently just being yourself is enough to win over the right person, if you can find him or her.
When she’s not hooking people up, Remy’s life consists of hanging out with famous chefs like Alon Shaya, translating their prodigious skills into simple enough language to become recipes in a cookbook. Her next cookbook is a Mad Libs inspired culinary adventure called Cook In The Blank, and after that she just might be concocting a book with Chef Kenneth Temple.
Chef Kenneth Temple is the recent winner of the prestigious TV cooking show, Chopped. He’s been a personal chef to Lil Wayne and other celebrities (Lil Wayne likes chicken wings) and he’s just published a cookbook with 75 of his favorite signature recipes, called Southern Creole. If you’re a betting person you could pretty safely bet on Chef Kenneth becoming a big deal celebrity chef and media star. But don’t expect him to follow any well worn path. His current cooking show is on Facebook and it’s a vast departure for anything you’ve seen before.
NOLA FAM are charting their own path through the world of Hip Hop. Happy Hour favorites, Moni explains how he has undergone a persona change, inspired by the 1986 Saab Turbo S. He’s not kidding. Like the Saab, Moni is nearly invisible, but reliable and fast, and that’s how he’s come to be called 900.
The other half of NOLA FAM used to be known as Q Hefner but is now known as Q The Don. The genesis of these identity change is the imperative of rhyme and while you’re betting on Chef Kenneth put a side bet on NOLA FAM. As 900 says, “Things are bubbling.” Take a listen to their music on this show, these guys are definitely onto something.
