Lupe Fiasco spoke volumes through his reeling performance.
Lupe Fiasco opened the show with his first album that was released in 2006, Muhammad Walks. His song, “Kick Push,” featuring Pharrell Wiliams, was the start of his journey to stardom. As he performed each song, the audience showed their love and support for his music as they all sang along. He continued to perform more hits from various other albums and mixtapes. Fiasco constantly made the effort to pump up the crowd.
“I love how he prioritized his audience and ensured that we were all having a great time,” said Pia Leiba, a fan who attended Fiasco’s concert.
The convenience of having multiple bars at the Wellmont Theater is absolutely great as one can enjoy beverages, all while listening to the powerful lyrics of Lupe Fiasco. The staff was extremely friendly and ensured safely protocols were met by providing wristbands for people of legal age drinking by verifying identification as well as having security guards in and out of the venue.
As the temperature decreases to stay true to the definition of winter, Starbucks, just a walk up to Church Street, is a great way to fuel warmth and caffeine at once. Great dinner options on the Bloomfield Avenue area include Costanera, an authentic Peruvian restaurant serving dishes such as Lomo Saltado, Ceviche and Causas. The Tres Leches is a must-try here as you savor the moist cake soaked in luscious milk, topped with whipped cream.
“I’m definitely coming back for more food,” said Kenneth Pariona, who is of Peruvian decent. If you’re a sushi lover, try Nori, a Japanese restaurant serving the best sushi in town and is BYOB. Near by liquor stores are Montclair Wine Cellar, Romany Liquor Shop and Merit Fine Wine & Liquor.
