مآ أجمّل أنْ تصمتْ
فيْ ؤجهْ منْ ينتظرْ منِك الخِصَام
وما أجمل أنْ تضحك
فيْ وجهْ منْ يُنتظرْ منك البكـاءْ
How beautiful is it to stay silent
When someone expects you to be enraged from them.
And how beautiful it is to laugh
When someone thinks you are going to shed tears.
I wonder if Hennessy’s sales department noticed the concentrated spike in sales in nYc over the past week. Taking a step further, I wonder if their digital marketing department caught on to the difficult to miss hashtag #Hennypalooza that spread like wild fire.
Ignited by Kam McCullough, but social media titans such as @RealLifeKaz, @KarenCivil, @MurdaMookez, @Nigel_D, @FullCourtPUMPS and more along with supporters all chiming in on the conversation to RSVP, share their wildest HennyPalooza past experiences, making up Henny-names for the event, and all other types madness embodying the infamous #HennyPalooza hashtag pretty much accelerated the blaze.
I did notice the HennyPalooza’isms were consistent. No RSVP no entry. Just ask Puma from VH1’s Black Ink Crew. He was on the verge of a mini riot when he was told his friends (whom didn’t RSVP) couldn’t get in. Needless to say, his tandrum was unsuccessful. There were several other acute isolated incidents at the door. Lesson Learned: Don’t let your pride get in the way of the RSVP. Just type in that E-mail, submit and carry on with life knowing your on the list. Simple.
The three-story brownstone in Harlem with a spacious courtyard layout included a patio-deck, which was a perfect set up for the massive Henny bar. Where bartenders @thirtyfourd & @dope_shit set up shop, whipped it and served hundreds Henny-thirsty-feins. I won’t even tell you about the Hennessy-filled squirters.
The DJ lineup went hard in the paint with sets from @GeniusinHD, @DJCROSSOVA, @AustinMillz @MekDot of 2DopeBoyz, @TwittaWorldPeace, @TheeEspinAlien, and @DjSydneyLove. Basically, a Who’s Who spectacle of the DJ underground and rising taste-makers.
There were a few minor things I would like to see improved. Professional security is always a plus (which was great), but unprofessional professional security takes away from the aura. If this show is going to go on the road (LA, Miami, DC…etc), the event operations team will have to iron out the kinks.
The third installment of #HennyPalooza was a hit. I even seen Cheri Dennis having a hell of a night. I see it becoming a household name as far as anticipated events are concerned. It’s here to say. Lord take the wheel, once Hennessy wakes up from snoozing!
Who else survived #HennyPalooza?
Grad school is lonely. And draining.
I think I’m depressed.
