By Ed Garcia Conde Founder, Welcome2TheBronx/Welcome2Melrose This past Saturday, April 26, my nephew Brandon and I had the privilege of heading over to Nintendo World at Rockefeller Center in New York City for a Nintendo 2DS Showcase Event.  The event was to give us an opportunity to play Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Mario Golf: World Tour, and Tomodachi Life before they hit the market.

Spring Trends Guide Part II

Kids For the little ones, our favorite shoe ever is Native Shoes. Ever since we attended their launch party years ago, we’ve been huge fans. Natives are perfect for spring and going into summer because they are light, airy, and allow your feet to breath after months of hibernation in socks and boots. Kids love them because they can run around in the park with them, and as summer approaches-
