NOTE: We got to Amnesia around midnite and there was a long line of folk trying to enter. There was also was a jump line next to the general line where folk could pay double to cut the general line (from $10 to $20). We were in the jump line and Mookie Assets cleared us for access in. We went inside and it was smoldering-ly packed. As we walked through the mass, we were able to go up the steps up to the VIP area next to the dee-jay booth to wait for Kelly Rowland, who was hosting this after party, to enter after her performance at the FAME Tour stop at Verizon Wireless Ampitheater.

Thirty minutes after we arrived, the security cleared a pathway for Rowland to walk thru the crowd and she arrived with her entourage. Folk began cheering, clapping, taking pics and she smiled and waved to the crowd as she got into her V-VIP area spot next to the dee-jay booth. She was very nice and spoke to the crowd on the mic to thank her fans for their support. Soon after we got a pic of her with Phil Assets, we vamped because the OOOH WEEE was gettin to us. LOL


We left Amnesia to go to Lola. It was also packed up in there.

Folk were wall to wall up in there.

In the Absinthe Bar section, DJ Needles was spinnin the crunked out hip-hop. Next to him was his younger brother, dancer Nicholas Gates

Nicholas wore his trademarked lit jacket
