Let's talk about our new and improved night life... first we have "Ocean " tuesdays at Splash, This party is very cute, I havn't frequented it as often as I would like because of that lil' thing I have called a day job, but the times I have gone I always have a great time...
Now thursdays have been on lock for the last couple of years now by none other than the Nathan Williams "SPRUNG" party, as many of you may have heard Sprung has a new home at 579 Sixth Ave. bet 15th and 16th Streets in Chelsea & may I say It's like a rebirth of the original Luke and Leroys vibe.
I had a ball, it's a very laid back atmosphere and the patrons had such energy (I also noticed that the new Chelsea location drew a more diverse crowd and it was cool how everybody related to one another),.
The kidz were out to have a good time and that they did... It was'nt even 10:30pm and the house was damn near packed with sexy brothas of all shapes, sizes and colors ready to dance there lives away, DJ's Poison Ivy & M.K. did there thing as usual, the bartenders mixed the Hell out of my Kamikazii's (So excuse any typo's you may run across in reading this article... It's the bartenders fault, LOL).
Nathan is always such a sweet host, Miss Erica was in the house (did'nt yall just miss her, I know I did) and it was just a great vibe... Plus the staff was very welcoming, from security to the coat check, to the bartenders. Great Party all the way around... This is another party I will be at more times than not.
Saturday's belong to the one and only "Langston's", This is one of the hottest saturday parties I've been to in a good while...
