Did someone say something about a football game?
Fair Park at the Cotton Bowl has never rocked like it did Super Bowl weekend. A and B list celebrities, athletes, agents, and many young beautiful women from all over America converged upon the party scene Friday and Saturday nights, determined to make up for lost time during the Great Dallas Snow and Ice Festival of 2011.
For yours truly, the weekend began Friday night with a Nivea for Men/Under Armour pre-party at the incredible home of Dallas sports entrepreneur Kirby Schlegel. High above the city with explosive 360-degree views of downtown Dallas, a mix of athletes, artists, Silicon Valley venture capitalists and other business tycoons indulged in sushi as they readied to head over to Fair Park for the Sports Illustrated/Black Eyed Peas party. SI/BEP was an off-the-charts success.
Even though there wasn't much Pea-ing (they played a very short set), Fergie did rock the crowd with her immense talent enough to keep everyone's wide party smiles locked in. DJ David Guetta was as good or better and the vibe of the whole night was euphoric.
Set up was first class, a testament to the Peas' continuing popularity. Steve Webster of CMPR.net, which handled red carpet and the list for the party, told me they had to turn down over 200 celebrities who tried to attend.
Party Rating: Phenomenal
Maxim was at it again Saturday night. Annually the hottest party ticket at Super Bowl, Maximites were welcomed by women clad in sexy Cowgirl uniforms, parlaying a State Fair theme into a fantasy. Cotton
candy, a ferris wheel, and some carny games were essentially distractions. The vibe wasn't as mind-blowing as past Maxim parties, but that changed for the better when Jason Derulo and then Wyclef Jean took the stage and turned up the heat. All in all a great night.
Party Rating: Only about 362 days left until the next Maxim Super Bowl Party. Please put me on the list, even in Indianapolis.
