On Tuesday, January 4th was the monthly Mack Lunch, this month taking place at Galanga and once again was sold out. Next month’s Luncheon is on February 1st at Solita Las Olas. To reserve a space (it is sure to sell out) go to MackPlanet.com. On Wednesday, January 5th Sidelines Sports Bar reopened their doors with a breath of fresh air. After a 2 day renovation and revamp including a new paint job inside and out, new furniture, a patio on the side of the building and much more (check them out) they are now a non smoking establishment. The reopening was met with much fanfare and was busy all night long. On Friday night The Manor featured the Coliseum reunion party starring DJ Miik who pulled out all of the great dance music from the late 90’s and early 2000’s and mixed them with dance songs of today. In addition, the performance by TP Lords was over the top. The club was packed and from the people I spoke to it seems like everyone had the great feeling of what the Coliseum used to be like. Also on Friday Living Room Nightclub presented Jersey Shore Uncensored with special guest Angelina Pivarnick from the Jersey Shore Cast.
On Sunday, Rosie’s celebrated the birthday of co-owner John Zieba and the place was packed with well wishers. A big happy birthday wish to John!
