Every year around the end of October, Washington DC is taken over by the phenomenon that we call HU HOMECOMING. The city is invaded by both Alumni and people who have never stepped foot on Howard University's campus in their lives. Whatever the case may be, this is definitely a "party hard" weekend for college freshmen, as well as grown men and women whose undergrad years are llooonnggg gone. As an event planner(I hate calling myself a promoter), Howard Homecoming has always been a profitable weekend. You can charge extra just because it's homecoming weekend, you can demand that chicks show you their racks to get in V.I.P., you can throw 3 and 4 parties in one night because there will be SO many folks out that you are BOUND to catch a crowd wherever you set up shop. But as you get older, the thrill kinda dies down, and you look for the QUALITY events instead of trying to go wherever you see your favorite rapper making an appearance. Well that's what I'm here for ladies and gentlemen, to let you know what's what, and to direct you to places that I think might be your best bets for HU Homecoming. Oh, and did I mention that my events are FREE?
First of all, Friday, October 29th Hypnotik Entertainment Presents
"HU-UMD Homecoming: The Battle of the Border" @ Penang
Now I'm kinda torn on this one, because I went to Maryland, but I spend lots of quality time at Howard. I guess I'd give my vote to UMD for academics, and a vote to Howard for pretty, sexy dark skinned chicks. Either way, it's gonna be a hot party, get there as early as possible, I'll be there doing my usual two step:
Next, we have a "Grown Folk" Party during the day on Saturday, October 30th in Mitchelville MD @ Myplace Lounge.

If you are from out of town, or are simply new to this scene, do some research before you commit to going to a spot that you've never heard of...if you see folks that look like this outside of the event, You might wanna check out another venue.
