Karu&Y continues to crank out the hottest Thursday night party in Miami into the New Year. Coined “college going out night,” students and graduated partiers alike headed to the Downtown hotspot to celebrate The U’s official Draftee Party, hosted by Kansas City Chief running back Larry Johnson. The Ace of Spades champagne party drew other former Cane pigskin notables like Roscoe Parish, Bryant McKinnie and Willis McGahee for the celebration. Radio personality Angie Martinez was also tipping her party hat as she celebrated her big day with Ja Rule, Scott Storch, Gorilla Tek and Pleasure from Pretty Ricky. A hot hip-hop spot and NFL lounge, Karu&Y is getting more play than all three Kardashian sisters combined! -- Tracy Block
