I’m so tired. My voice is gone. Folks came. We saw. We conquered.
Shoutouts to everybody who came out to the DC National VSB Happy Hour. Let’s do a quick recap since quite frankly, I’d really like to be sleeping but I do this for my culture.
I was a little worried at first. Despite having more RSVPs than a mothertrucker, between the hours of 5-6pm, there might have been 10 people. Which isn’t so bad, I mean, most people in DC get off at 5pm. It was cool and all, but I can’t lie, I was slightly worried.
All of those fears were allayed by 630pm when it looked like Black DC came out in full force to Tap & Parlour at Bohemian Caverns for some quality libations, food, and fun. With that said, here are a few things that come to mind about tonight’s happy hour:
1) I love how when you bring a bunch of ninjas together in DC, a Howard vs Morehouse/Spelman convo and debate breaks out. I shall always have the last word though. Take that Howardites!!!!!
2) I signed somebody’s hand. I did not however, sign any boobs, much to the chagrin of one particular VSS. I’m sure she’ll make mention of it.
3) I love that dudes actually came out. Hell, I’m not even sure some of these dudes ever heard of VSB. They just rolled by and saw a locale full of women and realized that wherever they were going wasn’t going to look like what they had seeent.
4) I have no idea if most folks actually met anybody new or not (well aside from me, who met damn near everybody), but everybody looked like they were enjoying theirselves. This made me happy. And a happy Panama Jackson loves squirrels.
5) Somebody ACTUALLY lost on bet on whether or not my real name was Panama Jackson. I was more amazed that the bet was made in the first place. And yes, they lost because as we all know, my real name is not Panama Jackson.
6) I can’t say how much entertainment I get out of folks curiousity about whether or not I’m a 3. Therefore, I put on a tshirt that had a 3 on it.
7) I actually gave relationship advice…well here’s another hit Barry Bonds.
8) For those who were curious, yes, that was my daughter.
9) I have to say this, mostly because it’s hilarious to me. There was a significant enough amount of guys at the event who could have hollered at any number of women…except they didn’t really…branch out. All those women…and I had to entertain them all. Though there were a few cats who definitely did their part.
10) Shoutouts to my folks (you know who you are because I specifically told you all how much I really appreciate you all coming to all of our events). I can’t tell you all how humbling it was to have SO many folks come out to an event put on by VSB.
Anyway, thats enough and I’m tired. I’d rather hear from other people in every other city how the event went. Let us know. Let everybody know. DC was off the hook and hopefully some of the folks in DC will chime in and share their thoughts.
Basically, if you went, let us know…
And mostly, thanks to everybody who came out to any event in any city. And Liz, thanks for putting it all together.
-VSB P aka THE ARSONIST aka GIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIRL…IS HE A 3?
