NICOLE LYNN MAKES HISTORY AS FIRST BLACK WOMAN AGENT TO REPRESENT AN NFL QUARTERBACK IN THE SUPER BOWL
Congrats are in order for Nicole Lynn, agent to Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts, on becoming the first Black woman to represent an NFL quarterback in the Super Bowl.
The Eagles triumphed against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, the same day the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Cincinnati Bengals in a 23-20 victory in the AFC Championship game. The Eagles and Chiefs’ victories mean they’re the two teams headed to Super Bowl LVII in Glendale, Arizona, CBS Sports reports.
There’s some Black history associated with the 2023 Super Bowl, thanks to the two teams who’ll be playing. For the first time in NFL history, two Black quarterbacks will be playing in hopes of leading their team to victory, as noted by CNN.
But there’s more history Hurts is bringing to Super Bowl 2023, thanks to him breaking the mold with his all-female team of agents. With Hurts playing as a quarterback in the Super Bowl, his agent, Nicole Lynn, has become the first Black woman to represent a quarterback in the coveted faceoff.
On Monday, Diverse Representation dedicated a post celebrating Lynn’s latest accomplishment.
It highlighted how Lynn, an NFL agent, attorney, and President of Operations at Klutch Sports, is making history this Black History Month.
“Thank you!!” Lynn wrote in response, along with two prayer hand emojis. Over on Twitter, users praised Lynn and Hurts ahead of the historic Super Bowl.
“Congrats to Nicole Lynn for being the first black woman agent to represent an NFL quarterback (Jalen Hurts) in the Super Bowl,” one user wrote.
Jalen Hurts has shared his pride in serving as a trailblazer in the NFL by being the first player to hire an all-women team of agents.
“I’ve seen that now with tons of different women in my life that are hustlers. Athletes, coaches, women in the business world of sports. I see it all the time. And they deserve their flowers too. So if me saying something about it brings more attention to it, then I’m all for that.”
The night started off with Miso bowl, which included miso & mushroom broth, vermicelli noodles, beach mushroom, radish, cilantro basil, chili, lime. A great start to a great night.
The second dish was House Made Pasta which included butternut squash cream sauce, balsamic, basil, pomegranate, candied walnuts. The soft elbow-shaped pasta with the bursts of pomegranate nicely thinned out the thickness of the creamy butternut squash and paired well with the mildly sweet and nutty flavor of the candied walnuts. This was Vonoi Magazine winning dish of the night.
The last off the menu dishes for the night was the Lemon Curd which included berry, mint, and short bread crumble. The fresh blueberries cut through the tart lemon curd spread, balancing out it's flavor for a light finish to the night.
The night was really friendly vibe and DJ GRACE was providing the music that kept the night flowing. The music was so damn good we wanted to get up and dance. The restaurant has an urban and artsy vibe about it.
Everybody was really nice staff and servers.We will be back for more. The owner Dave was a amazing host make sure you visit them at Urban Vegan Roots located at 34-47 31 street (Btwn 34/35 Ave) or visit website at https://www.urbanveganroots.com/
The 12,141-square-foot Royal Mansion residence at Atlantis The Royal Dubai will open to guests next month.Looks like the crown jewel of Atlantis The Royal Dubai is Queen B–approved.
This past weekend, the lavish resort hosted a star-studded opening weekend that ended with a one-hour private concert from Beyoncé—who sparkled in $7.5 million worth of jewelry during the performance, which reportedly cost the hotel $24 million—and a spectacular firework display that could be seen from miles away. While the activities brought out A-listers such as Black Panther‘s Winston Duke, Kendall Jenner and Jay-Z, the real star of the show was the stunning Royal Mansion, the lush accommodation where the Renaissance singer resided during the extravaganza. And now you, too, can stay at the insane digs when the property officially opens next month—for $100,000 a night.
Upon your arrival, you’ll be chauffeured through the private entrance of the two-level four-bedroom penthouse. From there, feel free to roam around the 12,141-square-foot space, which includes a private white-and-gold-hued-foyer complete with 100-year-old olive trees and sky-high ceilings that allow an abundance of sunlight to entry the room. The residence is flush with modern details throughout, from the white-marble flooring to the terrace’s wood furnishings to the uniquely vivid chandeliers, that make the ultra-contemporary Royal Mansion feel just as its name suggests.
Not to be forgotten, the swanky four bedrooms, which hold three king-size and two queen-size beds, can accommodate up to nine people and come with their own exclusive Hermès bath products. The primary bedroom, found on the second level, has an en-suite bathroom facing the expansive terrace, so you can soak in the tub while taking in the sights. Don’t worry about checking in at the lobby: With your stay at the Royal Mansion, everything is completed in-room, so you jump right into relaxation. The personal butler service is also on call to cater to any and all your needs, along with 24-hour room service—just in case you get a late-night craving. And you can experience spa-like serenity without having to leave the massive penthouse, since you can choose to unwind in your personal steam room.
Outside, meanwhile, you can lounge in privacy on the 5,123-square-foot terrace that boasts sweeping views of Dubai’s skyline, as well as the Arabian Sea. To escape the city’s famous heat, you can dive into the glistening infinity pool to cool off. You can even choose to have your meals prepped in the outdoor kitchen or eat inside, thanks to the luxe 12-seat dining room. Back indoors, there’s also an entertainment room complete with a library and a bar, if you decide to keep the party at home.
And the hotel itself may be just as awe-inducing as its most luxurious suite. The 795-room property includes the largest jellyfish aquarium in the world, an insane water fountain that “breathes fire” and 17 different restaurants and bars for you to test out, including a few run by Michelin-star chefs.
Sounds like it may be time to plan your next trip to Dubai.
Rates for Atlantis The Royal’s penthouse suite start at $100,000 per night.
