The protagonist of How Stella Got Her Groove Back had to go all the way to Jamaica to revive her fading mojo. So far weve saved $126.12 in our island-getaway fund. Lucky for us, we wont need to travel. Alonzo Mourning brings Zos Summer Groove to our doorstep every year. Well, the Hard Rock Live isnt exactly in our back yard, but its worth the trek to see comedians Mike Epps, Gary Owen, Marvin Dixon, and Benji Brown get heckled by some of the NBAs biggest stars. According to Zo, this past year the celebs werent so lucky. Last year the featured comedians did great impersonations of Shaq and Dwyane. The crowd was laughing out of control. I look forward to seeing who will be their prime target in the crowd this year, he says.
Maybe youre still a little salty about how the Heats season ended, so jokes about your main man Shaq arent yet giggle-worthy. Its cool. Zos Groove is multifaceted, and from July 11 to 15, there will be something for everybody: basketball clinics and youth summits for the kids, a cant-miss block party, an all-star basketball game at the AAA, and more. My favorite part of ZSG is looking around at all of our events and knowing that not only are we having a great time and bringing the community together, but more importantly it all benefits underserved youth in need. And thats what its all about -- changing lives, says Zo. The Heineken ZSG comedy show begins tonight at 8:00. Tickets cost $45 and $55.
