After staying for about an hour, we jetted to Lure Nightclub to see if comic Darius Bradford was going to be at his b-day party, "Sprung" and all of the news of him getting arrested and jailed for back child support payments as reported by his facebook page. The drive was to raise money for Bradford so he could at least be out to host his b-day party. Well, we got there, and got word from a source that we would be out on Monday so he was missing his party.
