In one word, WOW! The year’s Memorial Day Weekend in Miami was one of the best I have experienced since its inception. From cruises to clubs, from cars to stars, there was literally something for everyone. I was especially impressed with the amount of women that were in attendance. Although I did not do a survey, there sure seemed like more women than men on the strip this year. There were several club events that delivered a good show, but the hottest event this year had to be Miami Nice’s All White Party Cruise. There were not as many celebrities walking around, but we did spot Shawty Lo, Fabolous, D. Wade and Waka Flocka Flame.
The average temperature was 92 degrees, so you know the beach was full of action. The sand was full of young black people from 7th to 12th and Ocean Drive. I met quite a few beautiful women from Atlanta, Virginia, Houston, Philly, New York, San Francisco and Tennessee. Smiles, laughter, bbq, football in the sand, jet skis, beautiful people and even occasional nudity was all to be seen and heard.
I have to commend Miami Beach police department for the way they handled their duties. Other cities could learn something from their approach to crowd control. There was no ‘show of force’ to give the impression that the City was under siege. Just patrolling men and women with pleasant demeanors walking through the crowd or on bicycles. There is no need to come across as angry because the visitors pick up on that vibe and then it becomes an unpleasant experience for everyone.
Thanks to all my friends who I hung out with this weekend. I have not stayed awake for 24 hours in a few years, but it was worth it. I had a blast.
See you next year!!

Sup Fam –
Me and the crew are back at home base after one WILD WEEKEND traveling around the East Coast to do some ‘reporting’ on what happened this year at Black Bike Week in Myrtle Beach, SC and at Memorial Day Miami on South Beach (Florida).
Numbers you ask?
Shot of Ocean Drive (Miami Beach, FL) w/Young Jeezy Conversating With The Crowd…
Well, the Miami Herald is reporting up to 400,000 people were on South Beach this weekend for the Urban Beach Events!
Wide shot of some of the crowd on Ocean Blvd (Myrtle Beach, SC) having a good time…
In Myrtle Beach, reports are estimating between 300,000 to 350,000 were attendance.
Like I said it was a fantastic turnout at both events! We took plenty of pictures and I will be adding them to the site soon.
First order of business was to get a gallery page made to showcase the pictures. I have it up but it needs a little TLC to make it look lovely.
Sidenote: There were so many beautiful women in Miami this year!
