Remember Redfoo’s Party Rock Mondays at Marquee, which won the Weekly’s “Best Recurring Party” last year? Well, they are no longer. XS snatched up Redfoo for 2013, but the bespectacled and bedazzled party guru looks to be continuing the neon-spiked frenzy at his new home. Redfoo and the La Freak crew rocked XS into the late hours Sunday night, turning the club into a hot mess of inflatable zebras, party-rock fingers and DayGlo confetti. No need to retire those leopard-print leggings just yet.
It was all about “Rum and Raybans” for Sean Kingston, who celebrated his 23rd birthday last Friday at Chateau with a special performance. A dozen of the club’s cocktail servers, dressed in revealing French maid outfits, brought the rapper a three-tiered cake celebrating his latest single. Kingston did a quick set of “Take You There,” “Fire Burning” and “Letting Go,” before passing the mic to friend and special guest Soulja Boy, who wished Kingston a happy birthday and performed a track of his own, with Kingston (and fans) singing along.
Chateau also hosted Rev Run and Ruckus on Saturday night, with Ruckus on the decks and Rev taking the mic for a very hyped crowd. Christopher “Big Black” Boykin of MTV’s Rob and Big and Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs and running back Kahlil Bell were spotted in the club, as the hip-hop legends spun mash-ups and remixes for more than two hours.
Method Man started the night low-key at LAX on Saturday, hanging back at his VIP booth with friends and even chatting up fans for a bit. The Wu-Tang Clan member then turned it up a notch, taking the stage and getting the audience to chant “Wu-Tang,” before spitting a few of his solo tracks and finishing the night with “Da Rockwilder,” one of the most popular Method Man and Redman collaborations.
