Trend 1.General tendency or direction. 2. Fashion, Mode. Trending.  The newly adapted term for something that is “becoming popular” or heavily buzzing.

Pop culture, music, fashion, nightlife and entertainment trends have become as homogeneous as they are constantly changing. Through the web and social media we have front row seats to witness where, how and why they come to be. This is an absolutely exciting time to be alive and, on a personal level, I love the connection with people and pop culture online.

With that said I am very excited to present my weekly “Trends” column. Covering world pop culture trends, nightlife buzz , Must attend events,  Artist interviews, Album reviews, hot music buys ,  entertainment gadgets & music technology, personal music charts, playlists and much more.

Rotating weekly I will cover these areas with “Music”, “Tech” & “Scene”.  For my debut, here’s a Sampler of what to expect

Ping pong ninjas & pool sharks rejoice. Miami has a new hotspot for unleashing the gamer inside while rubbing elbows with hip and fashion conscience party goers offering a nice alternative from the thumping club and lame door policy on South beach. The place is cozy, chic and reasonably priced. Twitter:  @chalkmiami
