Saving the world - one Web site at a time

Live today - thebigreach.org! Rusty (if I may speak for him) and I are proud to be involved in such a great project with the fabulously great Nick. We just launched the site today, and there are sure to be many edits and additions coming up. But, I think launches are big milestones. Congrats, The Big Reach crew! Thanks for letting us be a part of something powerful.

Could I be more excited? Glass dance floor!

Ok, I cannot wait to check out the newest spot in downtown Raleigh - Solas.

The Web site is vague about the official opening and I'm not sure the email sign-up form actually submitted my email addy, but I sure hope to somehow be informed of the upcoming opening!

A fine dining restaurant on the ground floor. A night club on the second - with a glass dance floor looking down into the booths below. Wowzers! And a rooftop lounge on the top. Ahh, sounds so perfect for an end-of-summer margarita.

I need to plan an outing.

The Second Chance Prom

So, yes, we're the weirdos who attend the local radio station's wacked-out events. But this one was AWESOME! Imagine a night dressed up all pretty with hip hop geniuses Young MC, Rob Base, Tone Loc and Coolio. Holy fabulous!

Here we are getting our traditional prom photos taken prior to dinner. And yes, we did the full-out matching prom flower apparel, too.

The place was PACKED. The wait for a drink took about 45 minutes. I commandeered a stool somewhere during the night and sat on it in line one time. My feet were blistering up; ladies, you know how that is. In the end, we double-fisted our drinks so we could enjoy the show rather than stand in line.

Not sure that you can truly appreciate the stellar people watching that this prom provided. It was quite the mid-rapping entertainment.

I needed a break for my feet. Here I am sitting in the corner with my two Coronas.

Tone Loc = Rusty and Charles's hero.

Boy were they pumped!

Our little group. Forgive Charles for making a strange face and messing up this group shot.

Tone Loc is the man. He sings Wild Thing and the stage is overtaken with ladies. I couldn't find my way through the crowd to get up there before the bouncer started regulating. (That makes me so sad. I wanted my moment with Tone Loc on stage.)

Here are a couple of videos. Tone Loc and his posse and Coolio and his posse. (Rusty has not yet granted me permission to post the video of him rapping 'Bust a Move' along with Young MC.) Turn up your volume. I am beyond impressed with the video and sound quality from my new digi cam. Wowzers!
