Night Shift: Phoenix, AZ (10/14/6)

Hey Everyone,

I just got back from a surprisingly rainy and slightly chilly weekend in Phoenix, AZ. While the rest of the Prestigious Models were in Montreal, Canada for the SCP Show, Pearl Nalani, Melanie Tillbrook, Jae Angel, and I were in Phoenix, AZ for Night Shift. I arrived in Friday and just spent the day relaxing. My friend, Huy, and Kathy Lee stuffed ourselves at Ra Sushi Bar and Restaurant then settled in to watch a movie at home. The next day, after getting some In-N-Out Burger, we headed to the show. Despite the threatening clouds and slight sprinkles, there was a good turnout. Melanie Tillbrook represented Falken Tires and Jae Angel represented Modified Magazine as well as hosted the Glo-Go competition. Pearl Nalani and I competed in the competition together and made top 3 Glo-go pairs. In the end, Abbie Ratay placed first and Pearl Nalani placed second. It was a long and tough competition! After the competition, we headed back to the Modified Lounge for the last hour or so. Here are the pics I took at the show:

After the show, Jae Angel, Jessica Barton, Jessica Burciaga, Sahar Khadjenoury, and I headed to a new club called Jackrabbit in Scottsdale, AZ. It was an awesome club with a Las Vegas type feel with its hourly burlesque show! We had a great time just hanging out and dancing the night away. It was the perfect way to end the trip...right before my morning flight! Here are the images I took from the afterparty.

I hope you enjoyed this update! Thanks to Huy for all your hospitality. Thank you also to everyone who made it out to the show, especially those who drove great lengths to attend. You're all awesome. See ya'll at the next show!
