It's awesome to be a VIP. Even if it only lasts a day.

Over the weekend, Brisk Bodega lined up a prime party schedule, from lunch with DJ Irie to an American Airlines Arena VIP suite at the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Talib Kweli concert to a party bus chauffer.

A good time was definitely had by all. And somehow, we snuck in too, got drunk as hell, and ate many chicken wings.

Here's a 15-photo recap.

A party bus with smoke machine, lasers, and heavy bass took everybody to the Rusty Pelican.


DJ Irie has been working with Pepsi for about nine years. His advice to up and coming DJs who want to get noticed by sponsors is "create a newsletter, update it with everything you do, and make everything bigger than it is."



Some of the people there were Mikey Fresh from Vibe, the editor of Bossip, Chicago Hustles Magazine, On Smash, Dallas Socials, Brooklyn Examiner, the Howard Theatre, and Derrick G.


There was unlimited free champagne and OJ. I spiked it with fruit punch, invented a new drink, and had about 15 of them.
