I had to go early and help decorate.
Big thank you to the two lovely ladies who put in the time with me to add a little extra flavor to the night.
But it still took a while so I had to go home and get ready. I was behind schedule.
Matt hits me up:
Where's your list?
The GM is talking to me about VIP sales. We had this genius plan to sell out VIP. $35 gets you a VIP wristband and 3 drink tickets and you skip the line - a great deal if you ask me, 3 drinks alone are usually $35+
I promoted it, people knew about it. However, no one really knew HOW to buy it. We even had a sign that said "Candyland VIP $35", but people were clueless.
We still made several sales, but I clearly wasn't about to spend my night being a salesman. That's not my job. However, my job was to help make VIP LOOK good, and that I did:
And the DJ was playing CUTS. Shout out to DJ Mr. Supreme for hooking it up. He pulled no punches. And I only heard Lil Wayne's Lollipop maybe twice. He had this long 'Candy' set he played, songs about candy and what not, culminating in an extended remix of Lollipop.
Somebody got on the mic, saying how live the crowd was and how cool the party was, the best they'd ever seen at Heavens. I had NO idea who was on the mic, I went to go see, and lo and behold it's Mr. Supreme. I've *NEVER* heard him get on the mic, he shouted out the crowd and kept it jumpin.
All in all, it was a great experience. Special thanks to everyone who was a part of it, especially Soul Gorilla who made it all happen.
Keep your ear out for the next one, and PLEASE people, email me any pics you might have at firstname.lastname@example.org. My pic-taking skillz are lacking at the moment, I need to step it up.
Til next time... Peace!
