So many events in South Florida and season hasn’t even begun. I wish you all a fabulous Labor Day weekend and please remember, to be safe, say safe and party safe!
Last Wednesday was the grand re-opening of Sidelines who closed 2 weeks ago for renovations. I was so excited about what the new Sidelines was going to look like I was on line with almost 100 people waiting for them to open at 7pm. Congrats to owners Laurie and Jennifer and the entire sidelines staff (which by the way has some new sexy faces) on a fabulous job! Later on that night I went to Village Pub for what I call a 70’s party in honor of American Bandstand and Soul Train. This was a very fun Wednesday night! Thursday the MDGLCC featured their Spotlight Mega-Mixer Networker at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables. The best part was that it was free to members, so I urge you all to join so you can take advantage of all their fabulous events either for free or for a reduced price. In addition, you will be supporting a great organization! Saturday started with the Pet Projects Doggie Pool Party at Hidden Treasures Thrift Store. Doggies swimming, how fun is that! Saturday night started with the Teal Party which was a benefit for the Rainbow Business Coalition’s Co-Chair, Greg hardy, as he is battling colon cancer. Thanks to all who came out who helped to raise thousands (exact number wasn’t available at press time). Afterwards, it wasn’t lions, it wasn’t tigers, but rather bears, cubs, otters and their admirers at the Bear Invasion Party at Boom starring DJ Sean Mac of Atlanta. Later that night Discotekka honored their resident after hours DJ, Carlos G, with a Luau party in honor of his birthday! So many events in South Florida and season hasn’t even begun. I wish you all a fabulous Labor Day weekend and please remember, to be safe, say safe and party safe!

The highly anticipated and groundbreaking Madonna MDNA World Tour concert film will be released September 10th on DVD, Blu-ray and as a digital album on Live Nation and Interscope Records. Pre-order the DVD and Blu-ray now!
The two hour nonstop performance includes songs from Madonna’s MDNA album such as “Girl Gone Wild” and “Gang Bang,” as well as fan favorites including exhilarating versions of “Hung Up,” “Express Yourself,” “Vogue,” “Open Your Heart,” “Like A Prayer” and “Celebration.”
The MDNA Tour extravaganza was the most successful single tour of 2012 and was launched in conjunction with Madonna’s MDNA album which debuted in the #1 spot in 35 countries. Presented by Live Nation Global Touring, the MDNA World Tour included 88 sold out shows in 29 countries. Madonna and her ten member band lead by musical director Kevin Antunes and troupe of 27 dancers performed a wild two hour spectacle which included state of the art visuals and sound, hundreds of costume changes that fascinated, enthralled and entertained over 2.2 million fans. “I left my heart on that stage every night,” commented Madonna who personally spent six months editing the footage to perfection for the DVD release in order for fans to have a total in concert experience in their own homes.
“My show is a journey…the journey of a soul from darkness to light. It is part cinematic musical theatre, part spectacle and sometimes intimate performance art. I know people can relate to it. It’s very important to me as an artist that my show not be taken out of context. It must be watched with an open heart from beginning to end. I am sure if it is viewed this way, the viewer will walk away feeling inspired, invigorated and will want to make the world a better place. And this of course is my intention,” commented Madonna in a tour manifesto she released to her fans around the globe.
Rave reviews included The Dallas Morning News: “The Material Girl proceeds to take us through a song cycle that examined sex, liberation, sin, empowerment, love, addiction, rebellion and finally redemption. She did it all in classic Madonna Style – controversial and eye-popping.”
The MDNA World Tour DVD was directed by Danny B. Tull and Stephane Sennour and was produced by Madonna.
