I watched a screener of ’Aftershock’ two weeks ago and it definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat. It’s directed by Chilean director, Nicolas Lopez and presented by Eli Roth. If you love Eli Roth movies like I do, I’m positive you’ll love this one. The movie centers around an American tourist in Chile hanging out with friends having the time of his life until an earthquake strikes and chaos ensues. The earthquake has freed convicts from the local jail, there’s tsunami warnings and looters. Check the redband trailer and be on the lookout next week for an interview with Andrea Osvart who plays Monica in the movie. You can catch this movie in theaters and On Demand on May 10.
There’s a new spot in town and you don’t want to miss it! Diablo Loco on 6025 Richmond Ave was our Sunday funday spot this past weekend for DJ Penetrate’s birthday and we’ll be back this Sunday for the official Cinco de Mayo grand opening!

See pics below from last Sunday as well as the banner for this weekend’s celebration.

- 1 tablespoon of fresh minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon of lime juice
- Salt and pepper to taste.
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
One of my favorite things to do is cook so when my job came up with this amazing “Cinco de Minion” salsa recipe idea, I was extremely excited The talented chef, Isa Souza, created this amazing “Cinco de Minion” salsa recipe especially for the upcoming release of Despicable Me 2, which is hitting theaters July 3! Why not celebrate Cinco de mayo with a little Minion salsa?
“Cinco de Minion” salsa recipe:
3 yellow bell peppers (2 chopped and reserve the 3rd to serve)
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, diced
2 tablespoons of sour cream
2 teaspoons of salt
3 tablespoons of olive oil
½ teaspoon of ground cumin
½ teaspoon of ground black pepper
Heat a medium-sized pan at high temperature. Add the olive oil, followed by the garlic and onion, stirring constantly.
Add yellow bell pepper. Reduce the temperature and season with salt, pepper and cumin. Mix well and let it cook for about 15 minutes on low heat. Stir constantly.
When the yellow bell pepper is well cooked, remove from heat.
Add the sour cream. Pour all into a blender and mix. It will form a thick sauce.
Cut the top of the reserved pepper to serve as a container for the salsa . Remove all seeds. Pour the salsa in the yellow bell pepper and use the top of the pepper to decorate.

COMCAST AND NBCUNIVERSAL ‘MAKE CHANGE HAPPEN’ IN COMMUNITIES
AROUND THE WORLD ON 12th Comcast Cares Day
Annual Day of Service Goes International for the First Time and Will Surpass 3 Million Volunteer Hours and Half a Million Volunteers Since 2001
PHILADELPHIA, PA – April 23, 2013 – More than 70,000 Comcast and NBCUniversal employees, their family and friends, and community partners across the country are expected to spend Saturday, April 27, giving back to their communities as they take part in Comcast Cares Day, the nation’s largest single-day corporate volunteer effort. In its 12th year, Comcast Cares Day will also go international for the first time with NBCUniversal managing projects in England, France, Germany and New Zealand. This year will also mark more than 3 million volunteer hours and half a million volunteers since Comcast Cares Day first began in 2001.
“Comcast Cares Day speaks to the heart of our company,” said Brian L. Roberts, Chairman and CEO, Comcast Corporation. “As we celebrate Comcast’s 50th anniversary, I am extremely honored to participate this year alongside tens of thousands of Comcast and NBCUniversal employees, their family members and friends across the country and around the world to make a meaningful difference that will have a lasting impact on the communities we serve.”
During this year’s Comcast Cares Day, more than 700 projects will take place across the country and internationally, including projects in communities where Comcast and NBCUniversal employees work together, including New York City, Los Angeles and Orlando.
“Comcast Cares Day is a great example of Comcast and NBCUniversal’s unwavering dedication to the communities we serve,” said David L. Cohen, Executive Vice President, Comcast Corporation. “People across the country will experience firsthand Comcast’s commitment to their neighborhoods, which extends beyond this day and throughout the year. Giving back is in our DNA, and we celebrate all of our community partners and employees who continuously strive to improve the lives of others.”
On Saturday, volunteers will contribute their time and energy by providing maintenance, supplies and makeovers to local schools, parks and community centers. Comcast Cares Day is also taking place during Earth Week, which is widely supported by NBCUniversal’s Green is Universal initiative. Many planet-friendly projects such as building community gardens, cleaning beaches and riverbanks, and planting trees will add to the diverse line-up of projects.
Comcast and NBCUniversal also have partnered with many non-profit community organizations and local chapters of the National Urban League and the National Council of La Raza, who will be working side by side with Comcast Cares Day volunteers on Saturday. Additionally, teams from Comcast and NBCUniversal will be partnering with City Year, Big Brothers Big Sisters and Boys and Girls Clubs of America, along with hundreds of other local community organizations.
Below is a sampling of the multiple projects taking place this week:
Grand Rapids, MI (Hispanic Center of West Michigan) – Approximately 100 volunteers will be packaging, sorting and distributing food for needy families in Grand Rapids.
Highlands, NJ – Highlands is a 1.5 square mile, working-class borough in Monmouth County, NJ. Like many coastal communities in NJ, Hurricane Sandy ravaged the community. Comcast Cares Day projects in Highlands will include 250 volunteers working on a community-wide cleanup, restoration of two community parks, boardwalk repairs, a beach cleanup and helping residents with a variety of projects as they prepare to move back into their homes.
London, UK (Thames River Clean Up) – Approximately 100 NBCUniversal volunteers will clear rubbish from the river and riverbank, clear dense area of scrub, plant marginal plants and sow a native seed mix. Volunteers will also help by weeding, clearing trash and providing environmental enhancements.
Los Angeles, CA (Barack Obama Preparatory Academy) – Approximately 500 NBCUniversal volunteers will partner with City Year Los Angeles and the American Heart Association Teaching Gardens program to help beautify the school. Employees, friends and families will build and plant a real-life learning laboratory for students to learn what it means to be healthy. Volunteers will also paint educational and college-themed murals to transform the school into an exciting place for students to learn and encourage them to think about the possibilities for their future.
New York, NY (Revitalize Riverside Park) – Approximately 150 NBCUniversal volunteers will help beautify sections of Riverside Park by completing a hillside erosion control project, removing invasive species, planting native ground cover and flowers, and performing a variety of much-needed tasks to prepare Riverside Park for the busy spring and summer seasons.

Hamburg, Germany (Children´s Hospice Sternenbrücke) – Approximately 20 NBCUniversal volunteers will be beautifying the grounds by cleaning garden furniture, planting flowers, raking and digging.
