News & Events for Late October...

Since October is one of the busiest months of the year, it made sense to split our normal offering into an early installment, & this special addition to cover the later weeks & Halloween…

If you missed it, Capitol Punishment provided an absolutely awesome night for the scene. Held in the elegance of Ultra Bar, it drew a truly magnificent crowd who played, partied, & danced all night long. Indeed, an incredible line-up of top DJ's offered a high level of energy to keep the dance floors buzzing, while top performers, go go's, models, & an array of luscious fashion provided just the right blend of entertainment & intrigue to balance out the evening.

We'd like to thank everyone who made it out, & EVERYONE who worked so hard to make it a great night. Indeed, I'd like to personally thank model Nicotine for putting her heart & soul into creating such a fabulous event. Planning has already begun for 2010, so we'll look forward to seeing you next year!

In the meantime, we want to send along a few notes for the rest of the October Season…
