It rubs the lotion on it's skin, it does this whenever it's told

Spent the day in NYC yesterday and didn't get home until very late. I had a few meetings up there and met a friend who I haven't seen in quite some time afterwards for dinner.

One of the meetings had to do with an event we are planning for next wednesday. Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia is holding a Texas Holdem' Tournament at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Manhatten.

We are running the event, and I have recruited some bloggers to help deal and for no other reason than I can say that they are now under my employ!!! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH!!!

The event is going to be a blast. It is a $5000 buyin. Phil Helmuth, Phil Ivey, Annie Duke, and some other pros will be in attendance. I have Phil Helmuth doing the MC'ing this time around, and we are working to get it on the radio for broadcast. I'll update everyone on that as soon as I get details.

It will also be live blogged and I hope to have some video uploads on the live blog as well. Should be a very fun night.

The true heros here are Dan and Beth Shak. They are the headline sponsors and have put up an unbelievable amount of money for one event. Kudos to them.

All this good news and I leave you with something from a movie I watched last night at 2am as I tried to get a few quick things done after spending most of the day away from a computer.

Have a Great Weekend~!
