      From Dress Code to Dollar-Sign Decor, Cash Money Grammy Party Is \'Rich\' All Over [los Angeles]
      When the dress code on the invitation calls for "rich," that tells you something about what to expect from a party. And for Cash Money Records' pre-Grammy party at the Lot on Saturday night, "rich" described so much more than guests' flashy designer gear. Colin Cowie—weeks off his stint producing the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas's over-the-top New Year's Eve bash—produced the party under the hands-on direction of Bryan “Birdman a.k.a. Baby” Williams and Ronald “Slim” Williams, co-C.E.O.s of Cash Money Records. The Cowie team described Baby and Slim as eager collaborators ...

The party's theme was "A Night at Studio 54," a nod to the Grammys' 54th year, which began right after Sunday night's 53rd annual award show at Staples. The academy's Chapman, Rex Supa, and Clay Upton were the event's executive producers, and Along Came Mary Productions ...

      Fire Sends Animals Home Early, But Zoo Miami\'s Beastkeeper V.I.P. Party Goes On [MIAMI/SOUTH Florida]
      The Zoological Society of Florida’s second annual Beastkeeper V.I.P. Party took an unexpected twist Friday night. A small fire at the Miami residence hosting the party forced organizers to send the animals in attendance back to the zoo earlier than planned, so that they wouldn't inhale any smoke. Despite this, the party went on with more than 275 guests, each paying $500 for what organizers called a V.I.P. passport: entry to this party and a V.I.P. ticket to the Feast with the Beasts, the zoo’s primary annual fund-raiser, taking place March ...
