One day, you'll probably celebrate your 50th birthday with a small group of friends. Maybe it'll be a surprise party. Maybe you'll have a little too much drink, and you might even stay out past midnight. No matter what you do, though, it won't measure up to Dennis Rodman's 50th.
Even though his birthday fell back in May, the party happened in Vegas earlier this week, part of a launch party for his new line of "premium cigars."
Who else is excited to have this guy in the NBA Hall of Fame? He might be the first inductee to use his speech to promote his new brand of liqueur. As for the birthday party, TMZ has a bunch of photos, of the scene in Vegas, which Rodman said is, "The only city in the world where you can do whatever you want." Here is Exhibit A:
Rodman and his group took over Chateau’s Strip-side terrace and enjoyed Grey Goose and Red Bull in their private cabana overlooking the Bellagio Fountains. Rodman changed into a black-and-white houndstooth sport coat before jumping up on a banquette to dance with go-go dancers and make it rain dollar bills.
While in Las Vegas, Rodman stopped by Crazy Horse III Gentlemen’s Club, where his group and he drank Jagermeister at their VIP table. Rodman got the club hyped as he stood near the dancers’ stage and made it rain hundreds of dollar bills. Rodman also partied at XS at the Encore with DJ Diplo and had breakfast, which included a Corona(!), with a friend at Riva by Wolfgang Puck at the Venetian and drinks at nearby La Scena.
Beers at breakfast, inappropriate groping and making it rain at night... Yeah. The Worm may be 50, but he's clearly going harder than the rest of us, even now. Here's to hoping his Hall of Fame speech comes via satellite, teleconferenced in from the champagne room at the Crazy Horse.
Class things up a little bit, ya know?
