Somehow I Doubt I'll Get to Iverson's Bash

Somehow I Doubt I'll Get to Iverson's Bash

Deciding what to do while in Vegas during NBA All Star weekend 2007 surely will be tough.  Somehow I doubt I'd fit in at Iverson and LeBron's bash at ICE nightclub.  They're doing a four night stand at the club -- ironically one of maybe 3 clubs I have been to in Vegas -- and Saturday night looks like the night.

Hundreds of superstars from the sports, music and movie industries – including hosts LeBron James and Allen Iverson – will descend on ICE Nightclub in Las Vegas for four consecutive nights of celebrity-filled parties during NBA All-Star Weekend 2007.

Saturday, Feb. 17: Roc-A-Fella Roc-A-Wear present The Roc-A-Fella NBA All-Star Weekend Takeover: The Dynasty Continues. Featured guests include Jay-Z, Kanye West, Memphis Bleek, Foxy Brown, Peedi Peedi, Tru Life, Freeway, Young Gunz and DJ Clue

As far as Ice goes, we had a VIP table a couple years back, which was pretty sweet.  Goose bottle service and all that.  That all went down the drain when the guy in the black suit serving us informed us that you had to pay the bouncers to let girls into your VIP area.  You had to PAY THE BOUNCER to allow a girl to come sit next to you.  Awesome.

So yeah, I probably won't be chillin' with A.I or Peedi Crack.

Bud Light made a special "Dilly, Dilly!" commercial for Philly

Oh, you thought we here in Philadelphia were special? You thought Bud Light liked Eagles fans more than they liked Vikings fans?

Wrong.

Bud Light likes fans who purchase their beer.

But yes, Bud Light did make a special little promo for Eagles fans playing off their "Dilly, Dilly!" campaign that for some strange reason many people seem to like. And get this, it uses "Philly, Philly!"

Because it rhymes.

You can watch that right here and the three other spots they made for the Viking, Patriots, and Jaguars below. The Patriots' one is probably the best.
