Jackie O’s and Ohs in Mykonos


Jackie O’s is a beach club, bar, and restaurant situated at the edge of cliff, overlooking Super Paradise Bay.  You are able to rent beach chairs and have cocktails brought to your constantly.  You can also go up to the restaurant or bar where music is blasting and people will jump up, start dancing, and incite an impromptu party.  Jackie O’s is for the pretty people–causes you to squeal “Oh my,” “Oh wow,” “Oh yes.”  I swear–the only fat found at this location is on the steak).  It is truly the most beautiful place in which I’ve ever partied:  mountains, turquoise waters, gorgeous people, and tastefully decorated building.  Jackie O once said, “You have to be doing something you enjoy. That’s the definition of happiness.” Without question, anyone who visits Jackie O’s will be happy.

The Mykonos Art scene is hot.  I was fascinated with this piece. She looked completely real.


The food in Mykonos is fantastic: fresh, healthy and light. I ate a lot of fish and salads (and bread).

Mykonos looks exactly as it’s pictured in travel brochures (you know how pictures oftentimes look better than real-life, this is not the case with Mykonos).  It is the cleanest place I’ve ever visited.  The residents take great pride in their home: always sweeping in and out of their store areas.

My intention is for Black people to love themselves and each other. It sounds somewhat silly, I guess; but oftentimes my people are overwhelmed with negative images, bad news, and stereotyped characters about us. I’d like to flip that script. I’d like to remind us, as often as I can, how incredible we are. Read more
