The day party… what a great concept! If you’re like me then the club scene is sssooooooo last season and watered down. Actually, the Atlanta scene is watered down but this Sunset Lounge group has a little something up their sleeve.If you do not live under a rock somewhere, you should of heard about the Day Party being held at Shout Restaurant located in Midtown Atlanta on September 6, 2009. Hundreds and hundreds of people came out early Sunday for an afternoon of great music, good food and wonderful drinks. There was even an impromptu performance from my boyfriend, Raheem DeVaughn!
The crowd was friendly, the ladies looked and dressed beautifully (finally a day where I don’t see stripper outfits everywhere I turn!) and the men were serious eye candy! There were stars, athletes and entertainers sprinkled throughout the crowd.
Party-goers enjoyed dancing and dining on the patio overlooking Peachtree Street. Once you walked inside to the dance floor you were almost stopped in your tracks by the heat and heavy bass line. People were partying like it was 1am at the hottest nightclub in town. Sunset Lounge ATL has a good thing going!
Pros: Large following, good DJ, organized
Cons: Service at Shout was questionable. I waited 30 mins for drinks and food. When trying to leave I waited AN HOUR for my check. I understand it was crowded but this same event was held in August so Shout should have been prepared. Someone made a comment about waiting for her drink and a gentleman who happen to be standing near the table responded with “there’s a bar right there.. if it’s taking long you can walk to the bar.” It was the manager. WTF?!!?!
So with that being said, will I attend another Evolution of the Day Party? No, not if it’s held at Shout. If it’s held somewhere else, I AM SO THERE!
Sidenote to promoters: You should really make sure the establishments you use respect your crowd. Honestly, being understaffed at your event was inexcusable especially since this was not their first time. It shows little respect to you and your followers.
