I dont remember much last night but I do remember my midnight mix on KCRW (you can download it here), rocking the party and making an entire room jump up and down and lastly, ending up in a Del Taco drive through at 3 am. The energy at Viceroy was off the meters!  At one point the entire room just got out of control and I saw a sea of heads and fists in the air . It was magical!  A big thank you to all the friends who came out! I got to see some of the regulars that I met at Zanzibar and Sayers. Also a big thank you to the wonderful staff at Viceroy for the amazing hospitality and personalized Tequila bottles!  I hope to never see Del Taco again but I do hope to see you all in 2013 out at the residencies!  Have a wonderful new year and lots of love to you!
