Happy hump day, beat freaks.
How fuckin' rowdy was Steve Aoki last night at Mansion? The Dim Mak Miami party was so worth the $2,500 VIP table for six. Our frat bros loved it. They met so many women named Molly, flirted with all of them.
In fact, after Aoki's set, Molly and the guys ended up snorting Vick's Vapor Inhalers till six in the morning, finally falling asleep in the back of a Turkish man's gypsy cab. Talk about unpredictability, eh?
Anyhow, we'll let 'em sleep off the randomness while we check out some of today's top WMC and MMW parties.
