DARK RIDE: a vip experience and lexus launch party at playhousesquare

Thursday, March 10, 2011

UPDATE 3/15: Lupe Fiasco has canceled his performance due to illness (although i'd like to see a doctor's note proving it), but as they say in show business, "the show must go on!". National recording artist Jay Sean will be taking Lupe's place this Saturday.

You know when you're given an awesome opportunity to do something fun and you're so excited about it that you actually jump up and down?


Well, this is one of those instances.

The folks at PlayhouseSquare, Lexus of Cleveland/Akron, and 96.5 KISS FM are hosting one heck of a party next weekend.


DARK RIDE: A VIP experience and launch party for the new Lexus CT 200h is happening Saturday March, 19th at 8:30pm in the State Theater at PlayhouseSquare and will include a live performance from national recording artists Lupe Fiasco Jay Sean, DEV and DJ Flaco.



700 elite (and lucky) people who have tickets for admission will enjoy complimentary food and cocktails in a completely transformed for the evening State Theater with live music by Jay Sean and interaction with the new Lexus CT 200h (shown below) and Lexus IS-F.


On top of the normal adult libations there's also two Absolut martini ice bars and two champagne bars - y'all know how much i love me some bubbles - it's the Lexus lifestyle, baby!

No tickets to this VIP event will be sold, i repeat, you can't buy admission, but there are a few ways to get your hands on some tickets to this exclusive and complimentary event so that you can party we me and my fabulous friends.

You can acquire tickets at your local Cleveland/Akron area Lexus dealerships when the KISS FM street team is there, by listening to 96.5 KISS FM for your chance, by entering to win through Cleveland.Metromix.com, by connecting with PlayhouseSquare on facebook/twitter OR THROUGH CLEVELANDSAPLUM.COM!

  1. I mean, since you've never been drunk on champagne with me before you don't know this, but I'm pretty much the best person to get tipsy and listen to Lupe with.

    If you'd like, I'll audition for the spot :P

  2. Hey Plum! I think you should pick me to party with because a) my roommate has has followed your blog and had a girl crush on you forever and is too afraid to introduce herself to you when she sees you out (which is often, because we are totally fun and always out). I'd be the best roomie ever if I got her on your list and if she could hang out and take pics with you. And b)it sounds like a kick ass party and I need to be there. Also, when I read your story about my hometown, Buffalo, I felt like we were instantly connected-in a totally non-creepy way! If you are around the Flats (McCarthys) on Saturday for the Annual Malachi race, you will see us there in action, and you would for sure pick us to party with!

  4. I want to thank my roommate above for making me look like a total creep, but yes we love to have fun and are always out in CLE. I rep the city as much as I can and this event seems like lots of fun!

  5. Alexa-THANKS for your comment. Silly me! My email is swittek08@jcu.edu.

  6. Oh, well Alexa. Why should you pick me? Only because I will hold you dear in my heart forever.

    I remember the first night that I met you, ah, what a lovely night that was. XYZ Tavern. I was there, you were there, the adorable Seanski was there. My heart pitter-pattered when I realized you were the brain behind Cleveland's A Plum. It also pitter pattered when the douche bag that got kicked out soon after Ms. Zone took off her earrings and rolled up her sleeves.

    Basically, we'd have a blast.

    Also. Guuurrrlll....I love me some Lupe. I've been listening to the fella for years. My favorite song is "Sunshine". Listen to it when you're getting ready for work in the morning. It will put pep in your step.

    If you check out my secondary blog - http://lovelysonglines.tumblr.com/, you'll see all the times I've used lyrics of Lupe's.

    And as for partying with Lexus. COME ON. You and I both know that there is no classy lady who doesn't love a Lexus.

    Alrighty, Gal... When you decide that we would have a blasty-blast together at this event...shoot me an email at jocelynn.schneider@gmail.com'

    I'd be honored to be chosen by a gal who sees the beauty and the glory and the fun that is Cleveland.

  12. Thanks for putting me in Lupe mode to get through the afternoon lull. Love him!


    Daydream. I fell asleep beneath the flowers. For a couple of hours. On a beautiful day (currently fogging/snowing in the Cleve!)

    I gotta testify, come up in the spot looking extra fly... for the day I die, I'mmma touch the sky.

  13. I would like to win a Lexus. Is that not an option?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Well, I think I should go and party with you guys because it's spring break next week and instead of enjoying my vacation like i'm suppose to, my stupid professors gave me work. You hear that, WORK!!!! You're not suppose to do work over spring break. It's universal law that you are suppose to party your ass off before classes start again. Unfortunately, i'll be stuck doing quizzes, midterms and homework all week and this would be the perfect opportunity to party before class starts again. And, i'd also get to see Lupe who I've been bangin since his Fahrenheit mixtapes. Lupe the Killer and Switch are instant classics that you need to listen to if you haven't already. I just need one good night of fun before classes resume. Could you please help me? Please??????

  28. I've always been a fan of your blog and after your involvement in COMM-unity, I'm now a huge fan of YOU. Would love the chance to hang again at a swanky event with a Champagne bar! My dad has a Lexus, I'm totally borrowing it for this event and will bring my go-go gadget flow, too.

    Hope you pick me and my dude to come with! Holla.

  30. Because this could be my version of SNL's "I'm on a BOAT" Digital Short w/ Andy Samburg & t-Pain. Except mine would be not so much on a boat in the glassy blue waters off Miami but near a fleet of gorgeous luxury vehicles off the ice shores of Lake Erie. Without T-Pain. I'd call it "I'm near a LEXUS"

  32. My birthday is on the 25th and this would be a great "pre birthday celebration"!!

  33. This would mean the world to me. Lupe Fiasco is my favorite artist in the world. I have all his albums and have never seen him perform live. His music has gotten me through allot of tough times in my life. He is a inspiration to young men around the world! This would be the best thing to ever happen to me in my life. I have never gotten VIP treatment. If I win I would be so greatful! Please consider my entry!

  36. It would be tons of fun to get out and party downtown. Also, it would be an awesome birthday gift to win a pair of tickets. ;)

  37. The last time I won something is was a gum ball machine in 5th grade. I won it while peddeling a stationary bike for the longest time. I will have to admit everytime I tell someone this it still seems to be a really cool story/prize! I think it would be an even cooler story if while I am handing out bubble gum from my hard earned gum ball machine, I told of how I won tickets to party with Lupe, Lexus and Alexa!!
