Last Night On South Beach

We began our Saturday night adventure on the beach. MarketAmerica.com ( admittedly we had never heard of them, either, but can attest that they know how to throw a killer party). Jeremy, our PR god down here, told us to come back at 8, then he walked us behind the red carpet, smacked a VIP sticker on us, and we were in.

The spread was impressive. They have stylish lounges and huts all over the beach, with copies of Ocean Drive magazine on the tables. There was a huge VIP area in the middle, with couches and private tables - alas, we could not get in there - and, most importantly, incredible bars.

Along either side of the fenced in party area - people were lined along it trying to peak over - were two bars, each probably 30 yards long. They were sponsored by Absolut, and had virtually any product the company has ever made, and some flavors I am not sure are even available yet.

There was wine as well, and other liquor, but no beer. For a moment we wondered if we belonged in this place - being Joe Six Packs and all - but immediately I fell in love to the Superstar Mojitos they were featuring - Pear Absolut and some other stuff mixed in - and while it wasn't the traditional Cuban drink I love so much, it was a refreshing twist on the an original.

So for the next three hours it was those and Absolut and cran for me. There was a station serving sushi, another with a delicious paella, but most people were hovering around the mini Kobe burgers and the lamb burgers. I'll keep the exact number of these that I devoured to myself, but we definitely had our fair share.

By 10 pm the party was packed - thankfully we already had a good buzz going - with the bigwigs coming in last. J. Lo and Fergie were performing at the function, and, as luck would have it, as we were walking back from the rest room around back, here comes a procession of dune buggies, police cars and Escalades tearing down the beach.

The security guys tell us we have to stay where we are. In a flash, out leaps Marc Anthony from the back of the driver's side, and in a flash he's around the other side opening the door for his wife (she has him trained pretty well it seems). In what has been the motif of this NFL season for me, yet again I was stunned by how short this guy was. Give it up for the little dudes; we're getting it done, people. Tom Cruise, Jamie Foxx, Andy Rooney, Marc Anthony - at 5-7 on a good day, I feel vindicated.

So now J.Lo is like a foot from us. She waves for a minute, her squadron of security beef leaps out of the SUV, and she's whisked backstage. Then comes another car filled with A-Listers - part of the Versace clan, we think - and then one more. This time, it's Hulk Hogan and his wife and kids (Brooke Hogan must be pushing 6-feet, folks, not that I'm height-obsessed or anything).

Now, go back about 22 years, and few people seemed more larger-than life to me than the Hulkamaniac We watched the cartoon. We knew every word to "I Am A Real American" (perhaps the second-most jingoistic anthem of all time next to the awful "I Proud To Be An American"). We had the miniature wrestling ring.

So we're thinking we've got to at least give the man a fist bump and chat for a second about his epic battles with The Iron Sheik and Roddy Pipper back in the day at the Baltimore Arena. But before we get there the man is dismissing little old ladies, brushing people off and looking like a jerk.

He had some security dudes who dwarfed even old Thunder Lips himself. Maybe he was weirded out by the crowd or something, but it was already pretty exclusive company in there. Come on Hulk. You're better than that.

Anyway, we chat with some people, then out comes Fergie to the Pontiac Garage Stage (yeah, I am being a total shill here, but it's well deserved. this party was pretty unbelievable). She's entertaining and all on the stage, and plays here two singles - you know, the one that rips off the already annoying "Holla Back Girl." and the other one. Then she left. Small doses. Good thing.

We wait another half hour, J. Lo is making everyone wait, and frankly, we don't want to hear anything that's going to come out of her mouth, so we take off for the Penthouse party. Kathleen, a PR superstar who we bonded with over a shared love of the phrase "cool beans," had hooked us up with two tickets ($1,000 face value each) earlier in the night, so we skipped around the block-long will call line and walked right in.

The club, Mansion, was decorated in an aquatic theme. There were huge chandeliers, about 10 bars in various rooms, and huge dance floor, plasma screens. In various spots there were women, painted with body art, standing on platforms dancing. Generally, what you would expect from Penthouse.

It was all still classy, though. There were 30 Pets there, all dressed similarly, and no nudity (except for the body paint thing on those models, who were not Pets). The crowd was much more lively than at the Leather and Laces party Friday night, and the dance floor was packed. There was still plenty of elbow room inside much of the night, though, and we had no trouble finding open spots at the bar.

We figure that since we're here, we should talk to a few Pets. After a few hours we figured out how to find them amid those partying: Look for the gold key medallions around their neck (we're a little slow, and should have figured that out well before then, but you know, with the Absolut and all ...

We spent some time chatting with Martina Warren. Really cool girl. Down to earth. Friendly. Very intelligent (no joke, she was smart, witty and well read). She was raised outside of London (her brother is a huge Tottenham Hotspur fan). She was a waitress who was discovered by a photographer, she took to modeling and stuck with it.

She was the 2005 Pet of the Year, and got $100,000 for that and relocated to LA.

Next to her was Melissa Jacobs. Again, she could not have been more down to earth and engaging. She never thought she would be a professional model, either, but sent some photos in for the heck of it and was a Pet in October 2005. She's from a small town in Wisconsin and enjoys Midwest life more than the glitz of LA. She doesn't date rockers, and has the same boyfriend now that she did before any of this happened (he's a printer back in Wisconsin).

Both gals could clearly mingle and make conversation.

The party picked up around midnight, when they announced the 2006 Pet of the Year, and she, too, got $100,000. By now the lines were massive outside, and it was pretty much impossible to get into Mansion. Word was that Snoop Dogg was hitting the stage at 12:30.

At 2 am he actually began to tear it up. It takes about a half-second for the crowd to launch into full-on nuts mode, Snoop got everyone hyped and delivered his hits. It rocked. Guess we left there 3:30 or 4, and headed back to the roach motel on the other side of town.

So that's it, folks. It will probably be 2 am before we get back to our hotel tonight - I will be on deadline until late and then have to travel an hour and take multiple busses to get back. Our flight leaves at 11 - we'll be heading to the airport by 7 because it is going to be bedlam down here with hundreds of thousands of people departing.

No more partying. I need a new gastro-intestinal system after this week, and will spend the next few weeks drying out and trying to spend as much time as possible with Lauren and Chloe. Because we all know what's around the corner in March, and I am sure Redskins 1 will keep me busy.

Hey peeploggers! So doesn't appear anyone is tuning in to RI but I couldn't stay away. I imagine most are tuned to MW and TK but I feel like this post is for RI.

Yesterday my family situation officially went inot the toilet and will remain there for a while but we should see a light at the end of the tunnel I hope in a few weeks. Thank the lord for football so my weekend doesn't totally suck.

Okay to SB. If Sexy doesn't get his hands together this thing is over unless CHI D comes up with some plays. I hope so just so we can have a game.

More importantly PRINCE IS A GOD! (I mean no offense to anyone of faith.) I love love love love love him. He is a genius in all apsects of his profession and please tell me who can pull of a light blue suit, orange shirt and headkerchif that is somewhere between Tupac and a 50s housewife? Who I ask you? And can the man play guitar or what!

Okay that's all I got for now. I gotta get some sleep or I will officially shrivel up into a little ball.

But I am indebted to you, as are all of us Redskins Insiders, because you have been so passionate in taking views contrary to the prevailing opinion up here. I'm not trying to embarrass you or be a jerk, I am really glad you're here keeping us straight. Providing a really fair and balanced view. We need it.

No offense taken by you, Nate. It's just difficult for me to understand how someone can just fling around a derogatory term like that (I refuse to even write the word)about ANYONE. I know Dealer has some irrational HATE for Peyton but he could think of a better way to state it. And it is irrational. I personally cannot stand Eli but Peyton is a great QB (and the Colts totally won this game hands down) - I'm just glad he does not play in our division.

Posted by: Lisa | February 4, 2007 11:37 PM | Report abuse

Okay, I have to say something about Prince... I think he's an amazing artist and for the most part can do no wrong style-wise... but what was with the silhouetted pen15 shaped guitar coming from his nether-regions under the white sheets??? kind of odd.

For the most part a classy event. Billy Joel did his rendition in under 1 min 30 secs and sounded amazing...Pretty good game for having 6 turnovers in the first half. Not a fan at all of the G0-Daddy.com commercials. Those things are shameless and disgusting and its hard to watch a super bowl with kids when that shabingus is going on.

alright brothers and sisters, (and Uncle Diddy) I got Jury Duty tomorrow so no bloggin from me.

Jason, put your feet up man. Great job this week. I thoroughly enjoyed the blog the past few days... like i was there! Enjoy your Monday folks!

Posted by: Dorf | February 4, 2007 11:56 PM | Report abuse

lisa, I'm going over the Mike&Tony blogs. If my calculations are correct, Nate imbibed about three dozen pitchers of various types of brew, principally one named 'Hammerhead'. If I had to guess, he's busy singing karaoke in the pub right now... which wouldn't be a problem except there's no music playing.
Since I know you're watching the NFLN, what do you think of Jim Mora's assessment of Benson's injury..."I think that hurt the Bears running game." That's the kind of analysis that will go down in history...

How are we going to make it through the offseason without Dorf? First the school district and now the courts are conspiring to keep him away from us during the crucial weekday time slots. Unbelievable. We'll just have to soldier on, I guess

M=y typing has been awful this evehning since that second pitchr of Hammerhead, a more or less local brew. Thansk for bearing with me, you all.

dealer, please admit that I was right about the Colts. Please admit that it doesn't feel as bad as you thought it would to see Peyton win the SB and the SB MVP. Or at least admit that you can move along now that it's done. dealer, we love your cockamamie nonsense up here, but as Lisa has indicated once inn a while you cross the line into unacceptable territory, as do myself.

AAAARGH. Monk is not in the HOF. The Lancers are not the champions of the league. Okay, okay, okay. coping, coping, coping...

cload, my posts per minute has been way down due to as much editing as I can muster, to salvage as much comprehensib ility as possible (is that even a word)?

yes, the Hammerhead got me! Two pitchers of that, and some guy named Jim helped me with the pitcher of chocolate stout which I couldn't handle.

I love you guys. I know that sounds ridiculous since I've never met any of you, but dammit it's so true. I don't want this to end just because the SB is over. You know what I mean.

Have to wonder what happened to J-Gun. He mentioned the possibility of retreating to some covered area in the event of real rain, and I think he ddid get real rain, so maybe that's what happened.

Good Christ, this Hammerhead stuff has just clobbered me. I am a wreck. Needless to say, Mrs. Nate steered me to the couch and has been avoidning me since I got home from watching the game. Oh well.

Commercial-wise: loved the Snickers and Doritos ones, not sure about the rest. REALLY wanted to see a Man Laws one. Sad about that.

Not sure about the game in the annals of Super Bowl history. It seems to me as if these last two Super Bowls have been rather lame. Certainly not in the league of 49ers-Bengals or Rams-Titans. The turnovers in this one were embarrassing.

Regardless, I like Peyton and he deserves at least one championship (sorry dealer). So there it is. The guy simply is a master and student of the game.

Finally, you can't be a fan of this game without being happy for Coach Dungy.

A depressing note in today's MMQB from Peter King:

Quote of the Week IV
"A good man and legitimate Hall of Famer is being denied entry for reasons we never know, by people who secretly vote. Art Monk is a Hall of Famer by any measure. This is not right."
-- Washington owner Dan Snyder.

Dan, not a bad point. As one of the 40 Hall selectors, I'd love to see Hall voting be opened up so we would be accountable in such an important election for how we stand. But what happened Saturday to Monk, in my opinion, is mostly bad. Good for Monk: The major roadblock in front of him, Michael Irvin, is no longer a roadblock; he's in. Bad for Monk: Next year comes Cris Carter, with 161 more catches, five more Pro Bowls and 62 more touchdowns in the same number of seasons. Then Tim Brown, with 154 more catches, and the stat race is on. Every year, Monk will fall father behind in the numbers game. As someone who changed his mind on Monk and strongly advocated him this year (unquestioned leader on a three-time Super Bowl champ, superb downfield blocker, retired as the all-time receptions leader, never squawked for the ball with some other me guys in the locker room), I think it's going to be tough to get him in if he hasn't gotten in by now.

Wow Nate Dawg...we're gonna have to get your own sub-blog if you maintain this pace.

I thought Prince was amazing and I was a total sucker the for ultra-dramatic silhouette wailing on the axe schtick. Dave Grohl had to be flattered that one of his songs made it into the medley. Best halftime show ever.

I respect Peyton and am glad he finally got his ring. Happier for Dungy though. Peyton did get hyper-annoying down the stretch- crying about the run call when he's up by two scores and about to win it all. It gets tiresome seeing him stomp around out there. Does every play have to be an audible? Great player, big crybaby. But at least his talent outshines his temper tantrums.

The whole Monk thing really has me in a funk...the anger has subsided and now I'm just bummed out. 23 days and counting till the Redskins One tour of doodie...

JLaC, great jobs bringing us the sights, sounds, and smells of South Beach; really enjoyed reading the week's blog entries and would like to encourage the Post to send you out to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl so I can postpone blog withdrawal for one more week.

As for the game, that was an awesome moment for Dungy, and Prince absolutely killed it.

The rain never got me too wet and I watched the entire game from my seat in the aux box. Seemed like the stadium was 80 percent Bears fans.

Anyway, it was hard being away from my girls at home, but I had fun trying to bring the madness of the Super Bowl on South Beach alive for you guys. Thanks as always for checking out the blog.

As for the Bears-they are who we thought they were!!! Rexy will be a serviceable backup somewhere soon, he just don't got it. Anyway, exciting first half, but they just couldn't make it interesting down the stretch. Ditto the feelings of most people for Dungy/Peyton.
