GETTING DRUNK WITH POISON PEN Ep 5

GETTING DRUNK WITH POISON PEN Episode 5

poisonpen2

Produced by MCMIreport.com, this episode sees the intoxicated giant reppin’ the hood (NA ROCK) along with fellow Brooklynite(CONEY ISLAND). Pen is heavily lifted (all puns intended, lol), as usual. With Blitzkrieg supplying the drinks. Torae is toasted and now you know what “getting drunk with Poison Pen” is all about. The man drinks. A lot. You go toe to toe with him, you may survive, but you will say some hilarious shit on camera, for all of our amusement. Torae is a good sport. We all had a blast that night.

Shout out to Forbidden City, which closed down for awhile and reopened as the new and improved “FAT BHUDDA”. Some paint, a new menu, same chef, but new menu, a real DJ booth (no more turntables on the bar!) and a nice sound system – the place rocks. Check it out on a Saturday night. Order the duck, the ribs or the honey ginger wings (kitchen open late). Tell them GMS sent you. (It wont get you anything but a weird look, lol, but represent, fam!).
