Hook-her: I didn't think fish and naked women typically went together.
Because they say a picture is worth 1,000 words, I'll let them do my blog writing for this post ...
Chuck Wicks crashes girl's night at the Rusty Rudder after his Redneck Yacht club concert with WSOC 103.7. Really Julianne Hough, you went with Ryan Seacrest over this guy ... Ryan. Seacrest. Really?
And he proceeded to show us his moves from Dancing with the Stars!
Creative Loafing's Best Of party at BUTTER was, as always, the best. NC Music Factory (thus BUTTER and Creative Loafing offices) landlord Noah Lazes joined us in taking advantage of the fact there's a bar attached to your office, with likes of Tonya Jameson, Michael Kitchen, and Kevin Mitchell of the Forum
The Snook-a-like contest at Whisky River hosted by Snooki, who came and paid Charlotte a (paid) visit from the Jersey Shore – you can read the 1,000 words this picture speaks here.
I don't think I can ever eat a pickle again! Photo by Eun Park.
And the winner is .... Snooki basically picked the one that looked the best that she wished she looked like
Summertime in the CLT = Lots of girls in bikinis …
They say a picture is worth 1,000 words... but the word count for my column is only 350, so to better allow you to picture what I described in few words, I included some actual pictures. The following are the visual-virtual affects of my column this week Making Charlotte Metropolitan
The porch of the city ...
Denny Hamlin went straight from spraying champagne in Victory Lane in Martinsville, to toasting champagne with Michael Jordan at BUTTER. I wonder if Jordan gave the broom the Orlando Magic used to sweep the Bobcats to Denny before he went on to sweep Darlington.
Tucker Max goes to a NASCAR race. And of course he found the hot girls there.
No, Brotha Fred and I are not dating ... we just hosted the Charlotte Style event together at Ballantyne Resort.
After their show at the arena, the Black Eyed Peas performed a private concert, live from the DJ booth of Butter. (Photo Credit: George Lainis, Catch Light Studio) ...
And Nicky Hilton was the back-up dancer?
What happens when you combine a NYC nightclub and NASCAR superstars — the resulting recipe is one of Paula Dean's favorite ingredients: Butter!
NFL and NASCAR combine as well: Michael Waltrip and Kenny Moore seen on the scene at Butter.
I spent last Tuesday night in custody of the CMPD with a blood alcohol level of .08. No, I wasn’t drinking and driving – I was at the CMPD Police Academy acting as a test dummy in training officers how to administer sobriety tests ... kinda like jury duty.
You can find the full story in my column in this week's CL, "My night in the cop shop"... but you can find the incriminating photos here. Pun intended.
The bartender — or mad scientist, rather — who was precisely pouring 50ml of liquor per drink. Perhaps bartenders should start using measuring cups to pour drinks... food (or drink) for thought.
About halfway through the study, 1.5 hours — 4 cocktails and 200ml of liquor later — they had me blow into the "Intoximeter" ... and I only blew a .04! Yet I was legally drunk in my mind at that point. So drunk in fact that I thought the cop ordering me to "blow like I've never blown before" was comical.
And then the real fun began ... the testing. These are the tests the cops administer if they pull over someone they suspect to be drinking and driving. At first they did the "Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus" in which they look for six clues to intoxication (3 in each eye). They look for maximum deviation and onset of nystagmus (whatever that means).
Dontcha wish your girfriend was raw like Sushi, Dontcha ...
Some debauchery at the Debauchery party at Kashmir ... now that's what I call some raw fish.
And for more naked people, I found this picture online ... of a girl at BAR Charlotte! Now I fully understand why "Girls Gone Wild" goes there when they visit Charlotte. I wonder if those stickers hurt her nipples when she peeled them off.
And for some cultural enrichment ... Runway for the Ballet. Dancing ... what a much more respectable way to use your body ... just saying.
Speaking of which, the following conversation actually happened between my friend and me.
FRIEND: “Is there a difference between strippers and go-go dancers?”
ME: “There is a hierarchy of dancers : there are strippers, then go-go dancers … then NFL cheerleaders.”
Trick or Treat? Halloween isn't just for the tricks ... sure, it has turned into "Dress Like a Slut Night" with so many girls going as "Slutty (insert occupation here)" — but despite the fact that it's hard to find costumes that'll cover your ass anymore, there were a lot of creative costumers out this Halloween. And as I made my rounds to judge various costume contests, I captured some of the winners .... Treat!
A blind Jake Delhomme seen at Coyote Joes — and even though just in costume, he still got boo'ed off stage during the costume contest. I also saw a Jake with a for sale sign on.
All the single ladies! Beyonce and her back-up dancers seen at Andrew Blair's
Brotha Fred's AM Mayhem at the Little Black Dress party at Halo. Nice dress, Cubby... that's a trash bag.
No Michael Waltripp does not have a harem ... those are all MY girls. We ran into him (and he into our picture) at the Enso grand opening in the EpiCentre.
O.A.R comes to "This Town" ... to the NC Music Factory Uptown Amphitheater and Whisky River.
