I have decided to quit my day job and become a white female rapper. Albeit, I have some competition, such as The Gravity Girls who recently performed at The Milestone. But I think I have a chance of making Diddy's band with my remix of Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back": "I like cheese fries and I can not lie, you 'tater haters can't deny ... " What?!? I should stick to writing? OK, but I am just as good as The Gravity Girls (meaning, they're not that good either).
Anyhoo ... I went to a gazillion Bobcats games last season, but I wasn't in it for the basketball, I was in it for the beer. Whether it was at the Backcourt bar getting my one free beer at halftime, the Bud Light bar on the upper level, a random suite or just a basic $8 beer from the concession stands, I tend to do more partying than spectating there. Now, if only they converted the court into a giant dance floor.
When I heard about the big draft day party at the arena, I laced up my drinking sneakers and put my game face on because the Bobcats know how to throw brouhaha. It was like Chuck E. Cheese meets Stool Pigeons. It was the kind of party you take your son, little niece and mom to -- there were lots of kids, but don't get me wrong, there was lots of beer, too. There was also a live band, Wii games, pool tables, the draft day coverage being played on the scoreboard and the debut of the new Lady Cats.
There were more people at the draft party than a typical season game. The Digital Divas hosted the draft day after party at Blue. I had only been to Blue once, and that was for a freshly-boned fish, but as it turns out, Blue is an upscale place to party as well. And the divas brought all the boys to the bar, and that includes some Panthers players and Bobcats executives. The Digital Divas are always throwing parties, and they are the hostesses with mostest.
Meanwhile, some Bobcats players were doing their draft day partying at the Stuff Magazine Lingerie Contest at Cans. I had huge expectations of the Stuff party; between actually working at MAXIM in New York City, and even compared to the MAXIM party last year in NoDa, the Stuff party was just a typical night at Cans with the addition of girls donning bra and panties and Ace from the Real World. They also ran out of free beer and it was sweaty like a steam room ... see, that's why you should never make expectations, because when you do, you'll only get let down.
