Melting in H-town
HOVO on the
SO IT'S MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND,
the start of summer is upon us. The
words "I'm melting, melting!" from the
"Wizard of Oz" come to mind because it
has been hot, hot, hot in the Bayou City
The same can be said of the events happening this weekend and beyond. Let's
see what HotGG recommends!
CONGRATULATIONS TO RICH'S!
The Grand Opening weekend was a
smashing success. Literally thousands
of people were there between Thursday
and Saturday nights. Saturday night saw
a capacity crowd that left some waiting
to get in, as it was balls to the walls full.
So many men, so little time as they say
Every Friday night Rich's gives you
"Anthem." It's all the music you know
and love, all those club anthems that
have driven you to the dance floor.
Aquafest Cruise Lines' DJ Michael
Kessler will have you twirling. And,
how 'bout those hunky male dancers. $1
vodka till 11 p.m. and $2 wells all help to
start the weekend right. 21 and up only.
This Saturday sees the return of a
Richs-Houston tradition. The 2005
Military Ball. Wear your leather, levis
or uniform, or anything that will shock
the door staff, and your cover is HALF
off. Martinis in the Red Room, Ice in the
Blue Bar and sweating on the dance
floor to XM DJ Mark D (who always
makes HotGG sweat!) gives you a delicious Saturday night! www.rich's-hous-
ton.com or call 713-759-9606.
Did you know that Rich's offers free
cab rides home for adults 21 and up who
feel they have a blood-alcohol level greater
than .08 percent or higher every night?
Now you do. Thanks again Nassim!
SUNDAY IS GOING TO BE ONE OF
those busy bee days, so you better sleep
