"I'm the girl of the show," she said. "The guy, his name is Chino. He's the lead guy ... and there's a mixer who mixes at 6 and 9 a.m."

It was disappointing to see an officer hovering over one section where a group of students was screaming and yelling. When I started to cheer along with them, the same officer came and stood directly behind my seat. Auwe ...
AFTER GIVING it a try as a supper club, Deep Blue held its re-grand opening on Friday. It's now billed as a nightclub, although not much has changed. The blue lighting scheme remains, and a few couches have been added. DJ Spoo-K is the new resident DJ on Fridays ... It didn't take long for Ryan Chang to rebound from Venus Lounge. He's now co-promoting "Spice Lounge" on Fridays at E&O Trading Company with Partymasters Hawaii ... Rick Rock has relaunched his "Sinsation Saturdays" weekly, which takes the place of "Refresh" at Brew Moon ... Congrats to local boy Brian Ching, who appears in the March issue of Maxim ...
