This past weekend I, as well as another fellow Hmoodle member made our way to our very first Hot Import Nights event at the Minneapolis Convention Center. Car lovers from all over the state of Minnesota assembled to check out the latest innovations in the import scene. Myself, I was there to see the girls.
We got there pretty early as the doors were just opening and there was already and pretty lengthy line, but fortunately it went by pretty fast. As we made our way through the doors, it felt like we just walked in to a huge club as there were all sorts of different styles of music banging from the cars themselves as well as the Boost Mobile and NOS Energy Drink stages.
Walking around the convention center, there were lots of different cars on display. I may not be the biggest car enthusiast out there, but I can appreciate the love that these people have for cars and the hard work and time they put into making their cars what they are. Although I liked the cars with the interesting paint jobs, I was more interested in seeing what types of stereos and TV screens they had in them. It felt like I was seeing the finished products of the TV show “Pimp My Ride”.
After about an hour of walking around, we made our way to the Boost Mobile stage where they had different rap artists performing. The first group was horrendous and you could just tell by the faces in the crowd that I am not alone in that assessment. In fact, only two of the groups out of the six or seven we saw were even that good. One was a rapper named Casadon (myspace.com/casadonmusic) and the other were friends of Hmoodle, City Wide Kin. What I don’t understand is why the first group got so much time to perform, while the better ones, Casadon and CWK only were allowed to perform two songs.
An added bonus to attending the Hot Import Night event is having the opportunity to check out the beautiful models on display at the various booths. If the models weren’t taking pictures at the booths, the ladies were go-go dancing at the NOS Energy Drink Stage. There were also go-go dancers at the Boost Mobile stage dancing while DJ Glaze spun her record. As beautiful as the ladies dancing were, you can only watch them for so long.
After three to hours walking around checking the same vehicles we finally made the decision of going home. It was an interesting experience. We were able to check out hot ladies, watch some interesting performances, check out cars, and I did I mention the ladies? Looking forward to the next Hot Import Night!
