Last Saturday, I took a group of 8 girls, friends visiting friends of mine from Nebraska and Syracuse, to experience the party at Merkato 55. (See first photo below).  It's so much fun to see people's reaction to something that they are not expecting, and the twins were the perfect hosts.  We stayed from 2pm-7pm (yes even me!), and were the first table up and dancing upstairs.  The first thing we noticed was the unbelievable amount of beautiful women, and how much they outnumbered the men. It was like an estrogen festival....If I was a single guy I would be here every Saturday!  Downstairs, Nick Bristols was celebrating his 40th birthday with 40 of his close friends.  It was quite the weekend, we look forward to seeing the video footage from the day!
