The 80s babies were in full effect last night at Collaborations (The Verizon Center's new private lounge...I hear membership will run you $30,000 for two people) to celebrate DeShawn Stevenson's 27th birthday, thrown by none other than the Washington Wizards.

Lord knows I hated 80s fashion but I must say everyone looked great...kudos to everyone for bringing the 80s back tastefully. Big shout out to Gilbert Arenas for rocking the Gucci circa 1984. A night hosted by WPGC's Big Tigger, this 80s themed party was complimented well by the sounds of a Hip-hop legendary Biz Markie who rocked the 80s hits all night.

The party featured an arcade including our fav 80s games: Pacman and Tetris...yes,
Tetris! There were vases filled with all of your favorite candy from the 80s, including ring pops, candy necklaces and Pop Rocks! What you know about them Pop Rocks? They even had the Twister game going... it was crazy fun.

All the Wiz Kids were in the building and even though they lost the game that night, you wouldn't have been able to tell by the way they were partying. I spotted Seezins of Flavor of Love... she's been at a lot of their events lately and from what I hear she wasn't on the guestlist...hmmm dating one of the players maybe?

The usual groupies were in the building who I will leave unnamed. Still, the highlight of the night was Stevenson's choreographed grand entrance and special performance by Slick Rick.

Overall, I give the evening an 8 and that's only because it was hella hot!
