It’s nice to be in a city that is not too big, not too crowded and I can get through airport security in 5 minutes instead of 45 minutes. I am sitting in the Columbus, OH airport waiting to go back to Miami and I have forgotten how nice it is to be in a quiet city. Yesterday coming back from filming a wedding just north of Ft. Lauderdale – I was sitting in traffic for 45 minutes – 5 lanes stacked at 11:45 at night – ONLY IN MIAMI!!
Anyway, I want to say congratulations to Leah Halston for winning this year’s Miss Platinum Gem City Pageant. Tionna Luv came in as runner up. It appeared that Leah was the crowd favorite at the pageant that was held at the Axis Club – a nice small club in the heart of the restaurant club district (at least it seemed like it) – very gay friendly – why can’t we have that in Miami – you would think!!
Pictures and a preview trailer will follow once I get back and can upload the footage I shot. BIG PROPS TO BAR MANAGER (and jack of trades Robby) – who was relentless all night in trying to solve why I wasn’t getting any audio from the DJ booth. Club owners should really spend just a little extra money to have the right set of mixers and amps in their booths – I never understood why DJs get shorted out in this area – especially when these clubs rent out their places for shows and other events. Patching things all over the place is not the way to go – but hey what can you do. BUT ROBBY was awesome – he figured it out even while the show was going on and even while he had to tend to his bar duties.
I also want to say thank you to the entire Platinum Gem family who was very gracious and accomodating. So congratulations Leah on your win and on Tionna on your placement. More coming soon.
