PCA preps for parties, Kelly Rowland

PCA-2010-thumbnail.jpgIf there is one thing PokerStars does almost as well as it runs a poker site, it's throw parties.

It's hard to say exactly how this came to be. The people behind the scenes are really quite upstanding, thoughtful people who don't cotton to random Bacchanalian adventures. Nevertheless, over lo these many years the PokerStars Blog has been traveling to big PokerStars events, we has noticed a fairly common thread. If it's a PokerStars tournament, there is a better than even money chance of a big party of some sort breaking out. Over the years we've seen fire dancers, painted women, and just about everything you can imagine (and frankly, a couple of things you couldn't).

We've just received word that PokerStars has gotten it in its head that it needs not one, but two parties at the 2010 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. If you've been to the PCA before, you know all abut the smokin' Welcome Party Pokerstars always throws. You'll get that again this year on January 4 from 7:00PM to 9:00PM at the Royal Deck. It will once again feature free hors d'oeuvres and drink, not to mention some of the best local entertainment on the island.

For a lot of us, that would be enough. But, wait, there's more! We have just learned that there will be a second party on the night of January 9. That Saturday evening from 9pm to 12am at Paradise Harbour, PokerStars will host an invitation-only party with a live performance from R&B singer and former member of Destiny's Child Kelly Rowland.


So, there you have it. PokerStars is once again treating party-throwing like it was its job.

This time next week, we'll be getting ready to kick off the main event. The PokerStars Blog will have full coverage of the tournament.

And, because we strive to provide Accurate, Comprehensive, and Entertaining reports, we'll probably mosey on over to the party.

It's our job, after all.
