WE ARE BACK.....
So, it has been many minutes since the last time this blog has been used to report on arts and entertainment events going on in St Louis, Mo. But with anything in time, when the time happens again, it's as though you never left....like a long long best friend.
But enough with the sentiments.
Last Sunday, Yours Truly got back into the OUTCAM mode by attending two events in the St Louis. The first was to check out St Louis socialite Lisa West's bday soiree that was held at Love at Lowe's in downtown St Louis next to Ballpark Village. This was my first time at the hotel since it was built last year and I must say, it is quite swanky when I entered the hotel.
I was instructed by the front desk folk that the party was held on the second floor outside on the patio that had green turf on the ground that stands next to Busch Stadium. So, when I trekked to the area, i saw the table of familiar faces, including Frontline Security owner, Brian Stemmons (who I attended college with back in the 1990s) who greeted me with brother dap as always. So, the people checking people on the event list (including Miss Denise), I pulled out my media pass and was quickly given VIP treatment to the party.
There, it was an array of 30 + upscale people getting their network on while enjoying the sounds of Union House who's lead singer's voice reminds me so much of an old school blue singer trapped in a white guy's body.
Then, I saw the lady of the hour, socialite Lisa West who was having her bday party there. She hugged and greeted me and thanked me for coming. I've been knowing her close to 10 years while going to her events throughout the years. Then, I ran into the promoter of the event, Cash Cohnes, who is always dapper with some sort of suit ensem. We gave each other brotherly love as he continued to schmooze with the guests which were about 100 plus strong.
