Alan Roth has sported many different 'dos in his years as a South Beach player. But what he did over the weekend at the Beach Ball Festival beats even his mullett of some several years ago. According to Roth, Tommy Pooch and Buster dared Roth to shave his head on stage to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Participating restaurants and clubs started throwing in money, dying to see Roth go bald. After $1500 was raised, Roth said he'd match the donation to avoid being Britney. No such luck. Several thousand dollars were raised, and Roth's hair was, well, razed, by Michelle Pooch, who had the shaving honors. When we asked Roth how it felt to be like Britney, he said, "It's really cold out today." Stay tuned for a photo.

So we couldn't believe our ears when we heard Mokai was actually opening for a 'friends and family' preview last night and just had to zoom over to check it out. We arrived at around 10:30pm to find owners Nicola Siervo and Karim Masri mulling in the street, on their cellphones, not looking happy. Siervo told us that the city once again was giving them permit issues because they got word they were open for business, which was not true according to Masri, who told us, "We are having a friends and family preview and are not open yet for business. I had Quattro open for ten days of the same kind of previews and had no trouble." For some reason, someone didn't want Mokai to open last night, if at all. Too bad. It did open, if a little later than expected. We didn't stay to go inside but we received a call from the place's publicist, Lindsey Cooper, close to 11pm, saying that the doors were finally open. At last! And what's up with all this underhanded, sneaky, I'm telling on you, behavior? It's so third grade. Grow up and embrace the competition, people!

Madonna wrapped up her US tour last night in Miami and followed her performance with a stop at her official cast and crew after party at the Raleigh Hotel penthouse. The tireless singer made her way to the top without one single paparazzi shot, having been whisked into the elevator by intrepid staffers. DJ Tracey Young spun and Maverick Records honcho Guy Oseary personally checked every guest coming into the intimate, 30+ soiree. There were no crashers. While Young tried to bring in some of her pals, none were allowed in, despite how hot they may have been. Madonna arrived at 12:40 am.

Thanks to Jennifer, the self proclaimed 'lowly extra' on the set of My Sexiest Year, the film that's currently shooting in Miami starring Harvey Keitel and a random cast of quasi celebs, we have some behind the scenes scoop in case you were curious:

in what can only be described as reverse goss-mosis, blogger Perez Hilton has sited our story about Desperate Housewives star Jesse Metcalfe in his ongoing crusade to prove that if Metcalfe requested the song Jesse's Girl, that girl would, indeed, be a boy.

Power, water, showers, who needs 'em? Just hit Lincoln Road at night, before curfew preferably, and you'll be amongst what seems like hundreds of skanky storm survivors looking for a little action. Last night on Lincoln was a mob scene with a few places open--David's Cafe, the ice cream joint, Spris, , the cute little muscles place, Tiramesu, World Resources and, of course, Score.
Without lights, it didnt matter how vile you looked, really. In the meantime, while all of this week's woulda been fabby events have been cancelled or postponned, we just spoke to Alan Roth, sheltering at partner Tommy Pooch's place, and he says the Bimbos and Muscleheads party on Sunday at The Raleigh is still on. So far it's the only one that's still on and frankly we can't wait to don our Hello Kitty pajamas and see if they'll let us in.
