While most people were watching the Lakers beat the Celtics tonight, the Tony Awards were airing on CBS.? I’m not a big awards show watcher, but I did want to see the final outcome of Whoopi’s dress, which was designed by Project Runway’s Christian Siriano, who sketched up his vision live on “The View”.??Bravo Christian! You?actually made Whoopi look good!!?

Atlanta’s newest hotel held it’s grand opening celebration Friday night.? The W Hotel – Midtown is Atlanta’s 2nd of the brand and there are two others planned by 2009.
Frits van Paasschen, chief executive officer of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide ? the hotel chain that owns the W brand has determined that Atlanta has four distinct hotel markets, and W wanted to have a share in each.?
1. Perimeter caters to residential and shopping,
2. Buckhead grabs the business crowd and the well-heeled looking to drop cash at Lenox Square Mall and Phipps Plaza.
3. Midtown is where celebrities come to party and lawyers entertain their clients,
4. Downtown attracts conventioneers.
I can honestly understand their marketing ploy, but the bar is what attracted the celebs Friday night.? Spotted at the opening were Big Boi, Atlanta Falcon’s Ovi Mughelli, V-103’s Ryan Cameron, Jazze Pha, Cee-Lo and several others.? Even Tomeka Foster’s ex-hubby Ryan Glover joined in on all the fun and free liquor.? I sure?The Whiskey Bar (located inside the W Hotel – Midtown)?will now be one of the many after work spots that attract Atlanta’s local elite.? Can’t wait to try it next week…? 😉
