“When I said I wanted to go out and eat; I didn’t mean a cookout” _ thefatgirloffashion
The Makossa Cookout began in 2010 as an intimate affair in small Brooklyn, New York backyard. Since then, the party has enjoyed a rapid, organic growth, expanded to Los Angeles and is now a premier summer destination on both coasts. Makossa Cookouts features live DJs spinning a balanced mix of hip-hop, R&B, Latin, reggae, electronic, and dance music. It is their ability to traverse many genres that’s their trademark and biggest appeal. Drinks, games, and a food menu featuring the best of what summertime has to offer rounds out the experience. Before I go any further, please be aware that this was not your garden variety day drinking party.
The Makossa Cookout brought their party to Chicago along with the good people of the Miller Lite. We had a day that was full of good music, good food and good vibes at the Wise Owl. The event was hosted by Dee Phunk. There were 5 DJs! Four of the DJs were from their Brooklyn and Los Angeles crews. They also had Chicago’s own King Marie. They brought the Midwest vibe full circle with Detroit’s Waajeed as a special headliner. Waajeed is a music producer, and one-half of the hip hop and R&B group Platinum Pied Pipers, and a founding member of Tiny Hearts.
The second of three #MakossaCookout #KickbackSeries events is taking over #Chicago and my cousin Carla and I had to be in the place to be.
I’m so glad we arrived early because the #MakossaCookout got packed quick!
The food was amazing and of course, we loved the Miller Lite drinks.
Carla and I had a great time. #FUN (video)
