posting no pics

I decided not to post any pics from Miami since all I took were photos of Nelly performing. Will probably use those for the slave, so I don't think I should use them here. But here are the details of my past weekend. Only details folks, I do not have lots of time for much commentary right now.
FRIDAY, MARCH 7
Arrived in Miami and was driven by private car to The National Hotel in South Beach. With not much time before the evening's affairs, I grabbed a bite to eat, turned on MTV to watch Battle of the Sexes, unwind, and get changed. We Internet and print media folk, along with some radio personalities, met in the lobby and made our way to Skybar in the Shore Club Hotel. We had catered food, and an open bar there. Later, we walked over to the Delano where we saw J Records' Clive Davis. One of the members of my group stopped to shake his hand. Both of these Ian Schrager Hotels are pretty ritzy. Some Miami hot shot came and gave us wrist bands for VIP entry to Prive. Even with the wrist bands it was hard to get in. Yes, yes, velvet rope and daunting lines. But I got in the joint. More on Skybar and Prive here. Stayed there pretty much until the wee hours of the morning.

SATURDAY, MARCH 8
Since I woke up late, only had time for a little jaunt down Lincoln Road. Been here before, so I knew there was nothing but restaurants and shopping. A sista has got to get her eat on. Walked along Collins Avenue a little bit. That is hotel strip, basically. Right outside The National, I was checking out this chick's boots, then I looked up, and was staring eye-to-eye with rapper, Foxy Brown. Axe really spent a lot of money on this weekend, because they chartered helicopters to fly us out to the Wellington Country Club in West Palm Beach for the Axe House Party. (Remix: The party was held at the Mida mansion. I had to add that b/c someone emailed me and thought I was a perp or poser for not saying that. I guess they didn't check my bio or writing credits, and thought I needed to say I was at this party to feel like a big timer. Little did the emailer know that party wasn't even my scene, and well you know, you read the non mover and shaker post.) It was wild. Andrew WK, Nelly, and others performed. DJ Z Trip was on point. The event lasted until morning, and we limoed back to the hotel. Of course I woke up late the next day, only to be driven to the airport for my flight back to NYC for a 60 degree weather drop. Felt great in Miami, but once I got back, SAD hit me once more. Glad that it is finally warming up again here this week.
