Death Row in the house! The Roosevelt got a little 'hood this weekend when THE Suge Knight came out for the hotel-wide New Year's Eve party, prompting a resounding wait, he's not in prison?? reaction in all who were there and probably anyone who's seen this photo. Nope, Suge Knight is a free man, just like YOU. In fact, he goes to TEDDY'S.
Here he is in all his regalia and fantastic bathroom wallpaper motif button-down ringing in 2011 poolside at Tropicana. Has this notorious thug given up his gangsta ways for a reformed lifestyle amongst white kids who have never been within a 10-mile radius of the CPT? Probably not... but wouldn't that be fun?! Like if he came to Bardot tonight and I sat on his knee as he shared stories with all of us about being in prison or pistol whipping bitches? "Uncle Suge" we'd call him.
Let's hope that thing they say about how you spend New Year's Eve determines what you'll be doing the rest of the year is true, because that would mean we have even more to look forward to in 2011 with Suge Knight as a regular at our favorite hangouts. Maybe he'd even—damn, I hope I don't jinx it!—let us be in his posse and we could all be friends and, like, text each other and stuff!
Everyone cross your fingers for Summer '11 Nightswims featuring Special Guest DJ Uncle Suge!

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
