No comment: Skybox Edition.

The owner of Skybox Daquiri Bar & Bistro in Ridgewood Court has ruffled a few feathers on social media recently.  Ray Kersh posted a twelve-minute video on Facebook that showed him pointing a gun at the camera, bragging about donations, and defending his establishment against those who trash it on social media. Needless to say, the video has garnered a considerable amount of attention. 




Watch the video at 7:00.

I mind is a terrible thing to waste.

And I got kicked off Facebook by WAPT for making comments they didn't agree with about what they reported on. This guy should be kicked off

Look up their facebook account. Talk about entertainment for days! All someone has to do it call the health department or ABC and get this handled.

This is what gives blacks a bad name. Shit like him. And yes we have people that embarrass us too. But.....talented rapper? Is that an oxymoron?

I...I can't believe I read through all of those posts on that place's FB page. Wow. That guy is an absolute idiot and beyond unprofessional. He also got raked over the coals and just left in a burning trash heap that he keeps fueling. I'll give it just a little longer.

Only one review on Yelp:
Atmosphere was great but owner shouldn't be drinking on the job.....he can't hold his liquor he argues with other employee in front of customers....

Never heard of this dive and I shopped in Ridgewood Court today at two places. It's not difficult to get banned from posting on WAPT. If your post contradicts the liberal narrative, ZAP, you're gone. I gave up watching that station for that very reason.

4:17 and 1:27 -- You don't watch their news, but want to post comments on their stories. "Wahh! Mommy, WAPT won't entertain muh screeds!" Your diapers and bedsheets need changing.

Is that a grill or his real teeth?

I don't want a Bentley and anyone who does is one lazy cracker.

It's almost like he comes from a culture with no appreciation for civilized behavior or societal norms.

Weird.

That's Madison county right?

6:32 I'm 4:17. I said nothing about 'their stories'. I said they banned me from their FB page for posting an alternate opinion. I've not watched their station in at least two years. Meanwhile, your attraction to diapers is noted.

Wow. The frozen drink bidness must be lucrative if you can buy a Bentley and a Rolls with the proceeds from an Icee store in a dying part of town.

Could you please report which bank gave this rambling rappin retard a small business loan? I want to make sure not one penny of my money is under their stewardship and therefore being used to fund Dr. DJ Dopeyfresh and his daiquiri stand / grillz retailer / graphic t-shirt boutique / African hair braiding salon.

Sellin' daiquiris out tha trunk of my Bentley said...

I built my fortune on three things:

1) Selling frozen drinks in a two-bit dive
2) My ability to rap the deffest rhymes
3) A prolific social media presence

With these three things, I now have a Bentley AND a Rolls Royce.

F*ck education, diligence, business acumen, sacrifice, and hard work!

All you be needin' is daiquiris, Facebook and hip hop!

Nice try 11:01. The subject business is in Hinds County.

Chauncey, the gastronomic snob of Hinds County said...

Forsooth, but I must reiterate my previous thrashing of you Madison County plebeians who cannot understand the epicurean superiority of the City With Soul...

Oh yes, Madison County is known for its fine cuisine. It is particularly strong in the categories of "Chain" and "Meat & Three."

Continually amazed how Madisonites are too busy patting themselves on the back for living in a banal wasteland that they fail to see what uncultured hayseeds they actually are.

I'm sure Jacksonians are itching to give up Parlor Market and Skybox Daiquiri Bistro & Payday Loans (along with our many great restaurants our the ass) so we could be like the pot-bellied dirt clods who populate Mama Hamil's and Georgia Blue daily.

One bite of Skybox's fried buffalo fish plate will show you north of the border fools how sad your attempts at fine dining are.

Pitiful.

How is this a Madison vs Hinds thing 8:14? By the way, Madison folks eat in Jackson quite often. I do it 4-5 days a week and enjoy it just as much as I enjoy halfway competent city/county leadership. Keep acting cultured because you shop at an old Sunflower grocery in a semi-defunct strip center though.

He is too emotional to be in the service industry.

There are people opening up restaurants, convenient stores, bars and just do not have the people skills to handle difficult situations.

The customers are not there to please you, they are there at your business to receive a service, and pay their money to receive good service, not bad service.

If you can't handle the heat, get out of the kitchen.

EVERY topic posted here turns into a Jackson vs Madison/Rankin rant. They've used the line "...banal wasteland that they fail to see what uncultured hayseeds..." 40/50 times in the recent past on every thread JJ has.

I wouldn't read too much into the Bentley and Rolls thing. A lot of these hoods get a 25-30 year old salvage value whip just to say they have one, when in fact neither his Rolls or Bentley may be worth $2500. I had a case one time against a guy alleging his '82 Bentley was damaged. The valuation of the vehicle was around $1500, and he walked away with a stunning $250 check for repairs.

I generally try to stay out of the Madison vs Jackson debate, as I support both and truly want both to prosper. But yet since 8:14 has chosen to once again post his/her stupid and divisive post, let's see...you can choose Parlor Market but have horrible failing schools, 3rd world infrastructure, and ridiculously high crime....or you can choose meat and 3s but have paved streets, running water, great schools, safe neighborhoods, and low crime. I think I'll go with the latter. But feel free to enjoy your fine dining every night. In the meantime, despite my living in Madison, I will continue to sincerely wish and hope for only the best for Jackson.

As for your comment that Madison is a "banal wasteland", you might want to leave the confines of your gated NE Jackson neighborhood and ride around the rest of Jackson sometime, then come back and talk to us about a wasteland.

Bank? Surely you jest.
The interest rate on that loan ought to be a doozy.

Anonymous said...

Not to be a "hata", and I certainly don't want this upright businessman to put a cap in my ass, but I'm just having a little bit of trouble with some of the claims he is making.

These just don't seem legitimate

- He's wealthy
- He spent $120,000 on his dive of a bar
- He has a Bentley and dries his tears on $$$$
- He pays other peoples' bills
- He has a Rolls Royce
- He often goes into Wal-Mart and pays for the purchases of everyone in line
- He's a talented rapper (as said above, that's an oxymoron...emphasis on MORON)
- He's a nice guy
- He got his foul mouth from his mother and grandmother

Well, maybe that last one is true.

Please let us know the day and time for the ribbon cutting for the new location in Madison?

A little over the top? Yeah, maybe but this is actually what most FB posters look like. Morons. The constant selfie shots with your lips puckered and the fake humility that always starts with "god has blessed me.... I have done xxx today. #blessed".

Everyone wants to be a celebrity these days and FB gives people the false impression that they are. #Stoplikingstupidshit

Too much hate from all these feaux Christians and hundreds of churches in the metro area.

Anonymous said...

If there's one thing you can count on, it's a smug Fondren hipster who'll blame anything on Christians, even if there's nothing in the comments that has a damned thing to do with religion.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
