Friday In Houston: A Look Back

Friday In Houston: A Look Back

Good morning, Houston! It’s Saturday morning and the sun has risen. Super Bowl LI is one day away and the party is going strong. Thousands of guests have traveled to Houston for the big weekend and it’s been non-stop excitement ever since.

Texans House

 

On Friday, guests spent the day at Texans House, presented by Courtyard, soaking up sunshine, sipping cocktails and enjoying delicious cuisine from the Lone Star State. In between live band performances guests played pool, shuffleboard, and took a run at the world’s largest Pac-Man game. Former NFL stars Shannon Sharpe and Tony Siragusa squared off in a special “Lip Sparring” battle, while Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott and MC Wendi Nix answered questions during a “Chalk Talk” Session.

 Club Nomadic

 

On Friday night, the party moved over to Club Nomadic for an evening of stellar entertainment at the world’s only traveling nightclub. It was an amazing concert experience: 9,000 people enjoying the massive dance floor, 60,000 square feet, and three distinct VIP levels which each had their own concept. 

On the exclusive second level, guests mingled with celebrities who entered via red carpet before enjoying a menu of hors d’oeuvres, desserts, and signature cocktails.

At 9pm, Bruno Mars took the stage wearing a Houston Astros jersey, sending the crowd into a frenzy. The former Super Bowl Halftime star performed some of his hits including — “Treasure”, “When I Was Your Man”, “Locked Out Of Heaven” and “Uptown Funk” —  with incredible energy, dazzling the audience with his signature dance moves. And, of course, guests went wild when dancers disguised as “firefighters” came onstage to playfully put out Bruno’s white hot performance. 

After his set, DJ Khaled took over and played his favorite tracks from a booth overlooking the entire floor, Snapchat-ing his experience throughout.

Between the premium cocktails, confetti raining down from the ceiling, and stellar performances, it was a night to remember. As one guest posted on Twitter: “Best concert…best event…best people…EVER!!! @clubnomadic is what it’s all about!!!”
