The party, thrown by Goode Entertainment, will offer fans the chance to be in the same room as James, fellow NBA star Kevin Durant and "numerous other celebrities." Tickets range from $30 to $100, and table service is available for $400 per bottle. The price includes the opportunity to be glanced at briefly by LeBron, maybe, although probably not. (Get more intel here.)
I've been in a club at the same time as James. It's pretty amusing to watch. He doesn't drink much, actually; he sort of just sits, somewhere up high, and takes it all in while his friends bring women into whatever roped-off oasis the club has set up for them. He does a lot of head-bobbing, and knows the lyrics to every popular rap song.
And at the end of the night -- if his behavior in Cleveland is any indication -- he stiffs the help. A couple years back, when I was working at a weekly paper there, we reported that James had left a $10 tip on an $800 tab at an upscale steakhouse. After that, we heard from servers and bartenders around town with similar stories about James and his alligator arms.
For the sake of the folks working the Midland next week, let's hope he's learned how to find his wallet since then.
