    I tried to do the CIAA thing but I wasn't feelin the prices to get in the clubs or the crowd.

    Friday night, Beenie Man came to town and performed at the Neighborhood Theatre which was less than a minute away from Eclipse in NoDa.
    He didn't hit the stage until 1am... and of course they had the afterparty at Club Crystal which didn't close until 4 or 5am.
