  1. It’s kind of interesting to see all the different Super Bowl parties. I grew up in the Tampa Bay area, and it just doesn’t strike me as the hippest city. Really, you got the beach and seafood. Should be interesting how these parties are. And of course, it’s always awesome having Jazz from Fresh Prince fame spinning turn tables. And of course, Go Cards!

  2. I am so bummed that I am not going to this year’s Super Bowl to root for the Card’s. But, if I was going to the Super Bowl why not go ALL out. I am all for the Leathers & Lace 2009 Party which supports a great cause.

  3. I am ecstatic that the super bowl is here in Tampa and I work on Westshore blvd that takes you to the main and most expensive hotels here in Tampa and leads directly to the airport. My job is in the Westshore Plaza like not even 2 yards from the airport so I have been seeing limo’s come and go all day and I am dying to know who is inside. I will be going to JayZ’s party because Diddy’s is rediculous ad far as the price so I can’t wait to see Jay and hope that Bey is ther ewith him HA! this is a treat for us Tampa folks this year. I mean a lot of celebs come here often but not this many at once.

  4. i have lived here my entire life and went to the best party last night or should i said this morning, just was with so many great people from Arizona. The men in Arizona are so nice and friendly. They let me come to their suite and swim in the hot pool with them. Nice to be able to hang out and feel free to not worry about not having a swim suit.

  5. Sounds like fun! Our friends are going cause they got free tickets through his work. But he said the whole trip is still costing him $25,000 for hotel, travel, parties etc. Still he can afford it, so I’m excited for them!!! A few years ago they went to the Grammys but I’d honestly rather go to this and I”m not even a major football fan!
