    Honoring those who gave their lives out of duty to our country with a Prince party. – yup, we’ve become what I’ve feared.

    • anonymous

      why don’t you organize your own party to honor whom you want instead of knocking others.

    • DupontDC

      I have to agree. Holding a tribute party to Prince on a weekend that is designated to honor fallen soldiers is a bit crass.

        Judging from the previous stories I’ve read about it on this blog, trying too hard to be irreverent and controversial seems to be this bar’s M.O. when it comes to drumming up publicity.

      im sure that beer you’re gonna drink, or burger off the grill you’re going to eat is doing much more of an “honor”. people always have something to gripe about. smh.

        Right? All the people that use the 3-day weekend as an opportunity to go on vacation apparently didn’t get that memo.

        • illinoisandjefferson

          exactly!

      Hmmm it’s one bar hosting a Prince party. Stop acting like the entire country is hosting a Prince party and changing Memorial Day. And you do realize Memorial Day is always on a MONDAY and this party is on SUNDAY.

      Side note DJ Dredd is hosting a Prince Birthday tribute at UHall June 7th. You’re welcome.

        Of course I realize that, but it IS called a Memorial Day Prince Tribute Party…

      STFU, Donny.

  • Philippe Lecheval

    Richard Mixin’. GROAN.

    • I mean, I kill it everytime. Have you even ever heard me play?

    • Walter Sobchak

      Hey, I heard that Dick Mixin’ has a really cool party trick.

  • Josh

    maybe a tribute to Grimace? RIP.

    This was NO Prince tribute. They stopped at 2:30AM and they perhaps played 3-4 Prince songs. Just awful.
