No "SATC" spoilers here

I just got back from an early screening of "Sex and the City" and, sigh, I'm in love with the idea of love.

Ballantyne Village Theatre rolled out the red carpet for some lucky ladies (and a few men) who scored tickets to the movie. Appetizers were served, cosmos were handed out and feather boas were worn.

If you're a fan of the series, the movie -- to borrow an SATC phrase -- was fabulous. I've already added it to my Christmas wish list.

And if you haven't made plans with your girlfriends to go see it, consider these fabulous fetes:

  • On Thursday, “Go Big or Stay Home.” Community volunteer Bruna Oliveria is throwing a private bash that includes an early screening of the movie. The party starts at 5 p.m. with cocktails at Dressler’s at Birkdale Village. There will be a red-carpet shoe contest; the winner gets a pair of Manolos. Only 400 tickets will be sold at $100 each. All proceeds benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the YWCA. Attendees must be 21 and older. Buy tickets at Avalilly’s, Fresh Boutique, Luna’s at the Lake and Monkee’s of Lake Norman.
  • Civilian at Phillips Place will attempt Thursday to find out who knows their SATC the best. Bring your girlfriends and answer a short questionnaire about the series to earn your bragging rights. Partygoers will sip on martinis (a must!) and try on Carrie's first love: shoes. The winner will receive six tickets to a showing of the film along with VIP treatment and gifts. The party starts at 6 p.m.
  • Uptown hot spot Hom will hold the “Sex and the City: The After Affair,” an IT Factor party, on Friday starting at 9 p.m. Charlotte's own relationship columnist, Brittney Cason, will host. Walk the red carpet and feel like a star as “paparazzi” take your photo. Once inside, indulge in a Skyy vodka “Carrie” cosmo. Prizes and gift bags will be given away throughout the night. Tickets are $10 (e-mail socialdirector22@gmail.com).
  • Candy and Potter of WLNK-FM (107.9) are hosting an “SATC” party for their listeners Saturday. The night includes a private dinner at PF Chang’s at Phillips Place, followed by the movie. Gifts from Modern Salon and Spa and Pureromance.com will be given away. For tickets, listen to the husband-wife team between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.

SATC is old news, it's been off the air for over three years. To those who are still avid fans; grow up and read a book already. (no romance novels)

Did you here about all the bar fights going on uptown; You should read your paper Fights are busting out every night; Sounds like wild dogs that cant find a girl. Everybody is fighting over a Charlotte girl that swims in a bottle of cheap perfume. You can smell those kind coming a block down the street. Guys are fighting over girls with no teeth and live in a trailer that the tires on it have to be chocked with a brick; thats to keep it from rolling down the street on a good night after the bar closes.

Your empty-headed musings on consumer-driven, product-placement choked movies about nothing couldn't be any less frivolous.

How about discussing the real issues facing Charlotte Nightlife, like thuggy retards firing pistols in the air inside crowded nightclubs, or multiple all-out brawls in the alley on College Street.

Does someone have to die in order to rouse you from your cosmopolitan-fueled fantasies of VIP rooms, cute bartenders amd entire clubs full of nobodies trying to be somebody?
