Damn … what a wild and crazy weekend!! The 27th Annual NightMoves awards were an overwhelming success as we once again brought over 40 adult film stars and performers to Tampa Bay. The weekend started at Silks Adult Entertainment on Wednesday October 9 for the “Industry Warm Up Party”. We had a nice time and Silks provided an open bar and hors devours from 8pm-10pm. We had a few stars there and numerous area club owners and managers … it was a great way to kick off the weekend!
Thursday night we traveled to The Whiskey and had a hell of a good time! Carmen Valentina provided a “pizza party” for everybody and Hot Movies provided cupcakes that were delicious! We had over ten stars take the stage and Blazed Studios gave away an $800 Tremor Rock N’ Roll Sex Machine. It was an amazing evening and everybody had a great time!
Friday night we visited 4-Play Gentlemen’s Club who won the “Best Topless/Bikini Club” award for the 4th consecutive year. The club looked amazing as it featured all new carpet and new furniture. People went back and forth between the Player’s Lounge Sports Bar, 4-Play Main Club and the After Dark club. The stage acts were fantastic and we all had a blast!
Saturday featured FanFest at the Clearwater Clarion Ballroom where fans could meet our stars up close and personal. Along with the signing of autographs and picture taking, the afternoon featured vendor booths from X-Mart, Scores, Cupids Boutique, Love Toys and Secrets Hideaway … a live podcast from FLOhio Radio … The “Wheel of Porn”… an amazing show by Shar Zayn and … a $1,000 bikini contest that was won by the sexy and beautiful Ari Parker!
The other group went to 2001 Odyssey and seeing our stars totally nude was well worth the price of admission! The Odyssey went above and beyond this year as they installed a new LED sign that advertised the “Caravan of Stars” all month long. Along with that they placed ads in Creative Loafing and had the Lee Network girls on 102.5 The Bone Radio with DJ Drew Garabo. The girls were at the club till 3am and it was amazing!
That evening our stars were broke up into two groups with Sinsations hosting the first party! The new look of this club is breathtaking. They removed a wall, relocated the DJ booth and opened up the floor space … it looks great! We had stars on stage all evening long and the place was packed! We also returned to Sinsations for the official “After Party” on Monday night and it was nothing short of amazing! Thanks to Adam, Bobby, Tim and their staff for supporting NightMoves!
Sunday was Awards Show day and we went to the all new, completely remodeled Thee Manor Gentlemen’s Club in Clearwater. It was the perfect venue for our show and we packed the club! The PA system and lights were perfect and the feature entertainers in the $5,000 NightMoves Showgirl Invitational put on the best evening of stage performances I have ever witnessed! Stacia Dianna took home the $250 Best Stage/Pole Tricks award … Dinah Might won the $250 Most Creative Show award … Janine Jericho won $500 and was named Hottest Body … Shelby Doll won $500 with the Best Costume Award … Blake Monroe took home $500 as 2nd Runner Up … Justice finish as Runner Up and won $1,000 and the winner of the first NightMoves Showgirl Invitational was Shar Zayn who won $2,000, a beautiful trophy, bouquet of flowers and a return engagement in Tampa Bay as she will be at Club Atlantis in March!
I want to sincerely thank Rob Rice and the staff at Thee Manor for letting us hold our event at this beautiful, classy club.
