I am currently down here in South Florida, having business meetings and enjoying the various major Super Bowl related parties. Wednesday night I attended the MOVES Magazine party at Christine Lee’s in the new Gulfstream Park. Thursday night was the GQ Party at the Bud Light Hotel (Bud Light has taken over the Surfcomber Hotel for the week). I have to say that was the most impressive party to date. Earlier on Thursday, I spent some time at the Hard Rock pool for the Red Bull Super Pool party. Last night I returned to the Hard Rock to go to the Hard Rock “Rock ‘N Soul” Party with Drew Rosenhaus party. If you read my tweets, you know that I was least impressed with last night’s party. Soon, I will be hitting up my last event for the weekend: Leigh Steinberg’s party.
I have been conversing with many athletes and celebrities at the various events. The athlete I am most impressed with is Darren McFadden. Besides having a great first name, he is well spoken and has great character. I wish him the best next season with the Raiders. It has also been nice to catch up with a lot of great sports business people. Based on a few of our conversations, we may be able to do some great work together in the near future.
I have uploaded a short clip that shows what some of these parties look like from the red carpet to the action inside. See below.
