“Jersey Shore” stars Mike and Pauly D hit up Lumen in Chicago on February 19, 2010. FABlife correspondent Cindy Barrymore was on hand to snap pics of the guys (We have her to thank for close-up photos of Pauly’s jewel-encrusted headphones. Amazing!) and fill us in on all the action. Read her first-hand account below.
Last Friday, Mike (“The Situation”) and DJ Pauly D worked a not-so-hard day’s night, earning what the NY Daily News reports to be as much as $7,500 each for an hour-long appearance at the intimate Chicago hot spot Lumen. Nevertheless, the fervor encircling them mirrored that of the Fab Four, with fans freaking out for the world’s most beloved guidos.
After the duo canceled their scheduled appearance last month to attend an MTV press event with the other cast members, they finally arrived at Lumen around midnight on February 19, to a tightly packed mass of screaming fans. The adulation was so intense, they were forced to rush past the fans, heading straight to the exclusive VIP area.
Reemerging, Mike jumped on stage to shake hands, douse the crowd with champagne and flash his abs to uproarious applause. Pauly – sporting his signature tan and an equally gold Rolex – worked the turntables at the deejay booth, where snapping photos of him proved effortless for those camera-toting fans smart enough to arrive early to stake out their spots.
After helping Pauly hand out “Shore Whores” t-shirts, we spied Mike at back of the club sipping Svedka vodka as he flirted with some of the girls hand-picked to join him for whatever situation he had planned. All in a hard day’s work!
