Black— Bold, Beautiful & Badass

My Date with Danny Chavis

Meet Danny

 Location: The East Village.

Origin: Raleigh, N.C.

Occupation: Rock Star, Guitarist for Apollo Heights.

Hobbies: Women, Illustrating, and Writing about (and eating) Chicken.

How We Met:  Introduced at an art opening in the LES.

Fun Facts: Danny has an identical twin brother named Daniel and is fluent in Japanese.

The Date

Danny invited me to the opening of Black— Bold, Beautiful & Badass which featured four diverse Norwegian artists united through their shared preference for black. The reception was well received as the wine did flow. Danny and I showed off our knowledge of  Asian Art Art History and conversed with the artists, while attending each other’s empty glasses. Blessed with an eye for the exquisite and a natural gravitation to the vanguard, Danny makes the perfect date for an evening with the Arts.

The Dinner

After filling up on art and wine, it was time to head to the East Village for a bite. I suggested Natori, my favorite Japanese spot in the city and to my surprise not only does Danny share the same reverence for Natori as I, but is also good friends with the owner who gave us the VIP treatment (bonus points).  Danny ordered for us  in Japanese (bonus points) and we proceeded to bond over our love of the fried alligator, monkfish liver, and red snapper sashimi, which earned Danny mega “Food Compatibility” points. Although the dates are supposed to be dutch, Danny insisted on being a gentleman and picked up the bill. Who says Chivalry is dead?

The Conclusion

Pros: Is a Rock Star. Gets my Jokes. Eats Monkfish Liver. Is Brilliant.

Cons: Is a Rock Star. Obsessed with Chicken. Is a Smart Ass.

Danny Chavis is Black— Bold, Beautiful & Badass.

Our date was awe-inspiring  and I would absolutely do it again.

Next time, we’re headed straight for Japan!

Good night xx
