30 reasons to party

Posted By on Thu, Oct 14, 2010 at 11:41 AM

As I was standing in the airport security line at some random airport in some random city going from one book tour stop to the next my blackberry buzzed and in-came this e-mail:

"Congrats you've been selected as one of the "Top 30 under 30" in Charlotte as nominated and selected by your peers." ...wow, thanks peers!

I got so excited I literally jumped for joy and shrieked in that annoying high pitched girl's voice that only dolphins can hear, causing the airport security guys to turn an eye at me and my oversized gel and lotion carry-on bag. Next thing I know, I am being transported into a space shuttle-looking contraption getting X-rayed. (To all the security guys in that airport that saw me naked ... I'm sorry). But I was too excited about being appointed cool back home, I cared not.

But then I saw the date of the award ceremony and celebration: Friday, Oct. 15 ... shit. I'll be in San Francisco, still on tour.

But you all can still go (I'm jealous) ...

Elevate Lifestyle and SUITE's Charlotte's Top 30 Under 30 "Future Leaders of Charlotte" celebration party Friday, Oct. 15 at Suite at Epicentre. Award Ceremony begins at 9:30 p.m.

I'd like to add someone to the list of honorees: the guy who sent me the e-mail pronouncing me cool, Shawn Sarwary (pronounced Soiree). His name is Soiree for a reason — he knows how to throw a party.

But considering my 30th birthday is in January (or 9th anniversary of my 21st rather), I sure am cutting it close!
