Bron Bron to Host Event at The Shrine

We've still never been to the Shrine, but the Sloop's hip hop hot-spot continues to be a top draw for solid musical acts and this week will host sports royalty. Via the Around Town NBC website, King James (aka LeBron James) will host a party this Thursday (3/18) at The Shrine (2109 S. Wabash).

Bron Bron will be in town as his Cleveland Cavaliers take on the sputtering Chicago Bulls on Friday at the United Center. A who's who of Chicago sports stars and others are expected to come:
"The Blackout" party runs from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. and is hosted by King James himself, so expect to see plenty of other sporty types in the house from Bulls, Bears and other Cavs -- including, potentially Shaquille O'Neal.

But the most interesting question is whether Jay-Z, who performs at the United Center the same evening, will also walk the black carpet. Hova, a part owner of the New Jersey-soon-to-be-Brooklyn Nets, has been known to pop bottles with James in the past, and will certainly be one of the executives angling for James' services the NBA's free agent spending frenzy this summer.
