Legend has it, St. Patrick banished all the snakes out of Ireland. Historians say it isn’t fact, but rather years of exaggerated story telling. I, Superpimp, who some say has been around for a lot of history (Ha!) say it is true. He rounded all of them up and sent them to Pittsburgh.
All I know is, St Patrick must have made himself a honorary Clevelander after witnessing the party our wonderful people and city threw for him. I think he was a little surprised to see how many people of different races, colors, and creeds claimed Irish heritage last Saturday.
I got downtown about 10:00am on Saturday after not getting home Friday night until 4:00am. ( Pimpin’ ain’t easy.) My good friend from Lorain, Jim Maschari, met with me at the Barley House along with his friend Ray and his wife. After inhaling a couple of quick drinks, we migrated to Bar Louie’s for a bite and a “ Snake Bite”; or four. On to the Drop Bar outside patio for some shots, and some pics with fans, including WWE’s Derrick Bateman.
I walked past the “new” club, Martini 6 (formerly Sin) and ran into my bud Don Devries, the man of Martini 6. It was their grand opening with one of my fav bands “Iphonic“ who put a great show; but I was kind of surprised they had a couple drinks before they went on, HA! (Look for the soon to be released Iphonic music video, featuring your very own Superpimp)
What a blessed day, weather-wise. I ended my night on the roof of the Velvet Dog.
Thanx to all the fans who took pics and stopped to talk and party. You made my day! A special shoutout to the people of Cleveland; 500,000 strong only 21 arrests. A great example to other cities; let’s keep it up!
This suit is one of the few I couldn’t make up my mind about. Most of the time I see a suit and I know it’s me without even trying it on. Even with the suits that catch my eye, but I don’t take to immediately, I decide one way or the other before I leave the store. With this one, it took me three more times to see it over an eight month period to make a final decision. I finally bought it about a year and a half ago.
What does this suit mean to me?
This suit has a special meaning to me in a very different way than many of my others. It is the most interactive suit I own. Both men and women ask to try on my suit coats. They usually show their friends and take pictures. This coat, more than any other, is requested to be tried on. I am not exactly sure why; it’s just the way it is. Watching people completely change their mood and personality by just wearing a garment is so inspiring to me. My true joy comes from watching usually introverted persons become on the outside what they only allowed themselves to be on the inside.
My Favorite Night In This Suit:
Unlike my other suits, I don’t have just one special night having to do with me, but rather many ongoing nights of bringing happiness to others. I am very blessed to have the ability to create a good time out of anything I choose to do. Unfortunately most people do not for one reason or another. I just love the power I have to bring a smile to people’ faces, and exercise this power every opportunity I get. A very important tool I have to accomplish my quest is what I call the “Magic Suit.” For just that few minutes it’s worn, people of all ages “magically” forget the clouds in their life, and feel the sun on their face.
Until next time,
This past Sunday I went to an event where I had the most fun since my own Pimp & Pimpette party!
The event was organized by the beautiful & talented Shannon Prada to showcase her new swimsuit line and to celebrate Donnie’s 19th birthday. Ha! The party was at at the Islander Grille in Parma and was hosted by the equally beautiful & high energy Kileigh Hohenfeld.
I was a celebrity judge along with Joe Quebodeaux from iPhonic and Aaron LaFette.Dj Xcell provided his expertise in creating the musical atmosphere.
The two highlights of the event ( besides the models ) were the fire show put on by Cleveland’ best bartender Robbie Flair and the impromptu performance by Iphonic singer JQ. Check out the video.
Congratulations to the two winners, Tara and Victoria, who will go on to the finals.
A very special Congratulations to Shannon, Kileigh, and Donnie on a very successful as well as entertaining event.
A special thanx for letting me be a part of this memorable night………
