There are two things Hit The Floor’s Rob Riley really seems to enjoy besides acting–eating and anything Caribbean! Thus, it is no surprise this hot actor is flexing his mogul muscles, collaborating with Celebrity Chef, Bernard James, with TOCLA Catering! Rob’s latest venture jump started the festivities for this weekend’s activities centered around The BET Awards, and needless to say it was a hit.

Guests were treated to a menu of Ackee & Salt Fish Tostones, Jerk Salmon and Chicken, Coconut Curry Shrimp, Guinness Braised Short Ribs, Jerk Tacos,  Lobster Macaroni & Cheese, Rice & Peas– all made with Chef Bernard’s signature sauces! (Is your mouth watering and your stomach growling too now?) The guest were also treated a specialty cocktail provide by ACCA Sorel Demi-Seco. Naturally, a few of Rob’s celebrity friends came out in support and the list is massive: Actor Darius McCrary ( TV One Movie Love Under New Management, Family Matters), Actor Michael Jai White (Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse, Why Did I Get Married), Celebrity Blogger The Jasmine Brand, Reality TV Personality Moniece Slaughter ( Love & Hip Hop Hollywood), Actress Jasmine Lewis (Barbershop),Director Carl Seaton (TV One Movie Bad Dad Rehab) Rapper Model Lola Monore.The event was produced by The Luxe PR Group and  sponsored by ACCA Sorel, Hollywood Massive and Team Soca.

We definitely wish both Rob and Chef Bernard the best on their new venture. We have no doubt TOCLA Catering will be the talk of Tinsel Town, especially if the food looks and tastes as amazing as it did the other night! Kudos guys, kudos!



Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, where it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -Michael Jonvier
