Jay-Z’s grand opening of the 40/40 Club at The Palazzo Resort-Hotel-Casino in Las Vegas went off without a hitch last night (December 30).
The rap mogul showed up in a tux, but most of the attention was drawn by his girlfriend, Beyonce Knowles, and her sister Solange - who both worked the red carpet looking ever-so stylish.
During the course of the evening, which besides being a grand opening was also a birthday party for basketball star LeBron James, Jay-Z told the crowd: "I just want everyone to have a good time and not get caught up in the whole glitzy pretentious clubbing thing. But I’m up for a big night, and a big year next year. Good things are gonna happen.”
A press report describing what patrons of the club can expect tells: "The 40/40 Club, named after one of sport's most prestigious achievements - 40 home runs and 40 stolen bases in the same season, combines a multi-level ultra sports bar with a chic lounge all under the direction of hip-hop mogul Jay-Z." Providing the ultimate in sports and entertainment, the 40/40 Club will feature an eclectic menu including The Picnic (fried deviled eggs and southern-fried chicken sticks with the special 40/40 sauce), signature 40/40 burgers, and wings amongst other items. The sports memorabilia amidst the lavish gold and platinum decor will serve as the perfect backdrop for the ultra luxurious sports bar."
