Miss Lily's Variety by Tono

If you’ve taken a taxi in New York City in the last few years, you’re familiar with NBC’s short clips spotlighting new and cool places to buy things around town. In a recent Shopping Guide clip, dashing host George Oliphant makes a visit to one of our main stops in Manhattan, Miss Lily’s Variety. He tells cab riders that the reggae/dancehall-focused retail/gallery annex of the popular Jamaican eatery (and home of RadioLily.com) is “collector’s paradise for rare Jamaican vinyl,” and even holds up Miss Lily’s newly published first book, of Jamaican Dancehall Signs, which includes a foreword and interview with collector Maxine Walters by Large Up’s own Jesse Serwer.

Island Exchange: Jamaican Flavor in Martha’s Vineyard?

Words by Jesse Serwer, Photo by Steve Haines, via the Boston Globe

Martha’s Vineyard would probably be one of the last islands one thinks of when they think of getting “irie” but the upscale Massachusetts enclave (which is currently hosting the Obamas, among other notables) is getting a heavyweight dose of Jamaican flavor. This past Sunday’s Boston Globe has the story of Irie Bites, a food truck that’s been serving up jerk chicken and other yard food specialties on “the Vineyard” for the last two summers. Notably, the truck’s operator is Melody Cunningham, the widow of the late Peter Tosh, who shares the Irie Bites story with the Globe in an interview. Read what she has to say here.
