Slip-N-Slide's 15th Anniversary Party at Hotel Victor in Miami Beach was definitely the best party of 2008. Baby tigers, porn stars, open bars, and lots of millionaire thugs showing off their jewelry. Trina was posing for photos as Keith Sweat performed. I got to sit and talk to Slip-N-Slide's founder and CEO Ted Lucas for a few minutes. We talked about my first interview with him about a year ago, where he saved me. We also talked about our team, the Miami Dolphins (Ted predicts that they will "make the playoffs this year without a doubt"). Thanks Slip N Slide, for representing Miami for 15 years, and putting out some great music.
