Seems like the folks at The Boot, a New Orleans bar catering to a largely collegiate clientele, are none too happy with hip-hop superstar Snoop Dogg after he ditched on a planned party there last weekend.
Snoop was in the Big Easy on Saturday to perform as part of the NBA All-Star Weekend festivities, and a huge afterparty was planned at The Boot, where he had held similar bashes in the past.
The rapper was supposed to have his DJs start spinning at The Boot around 10:30 on Saturday with Snoop himself slated to make the scene around 1 a.m. And even though his crew came in and set up all the DJ equipment, not a single member of Snoop’s entourage showed.
"We got stood up so bad!" Boot employee Michelle tells OK! about the situation. "We charged $15 a person and the line was out the door waiting to get in."
To atone for the debacle, the bar sent out the following e-mail to its regular patrons on Monday:
"The Boot would like to apologize for the disappointment that was this past Saturday night. As most of you know, Snoop Dogg was supposed to throw his afterparty for the NBA All-Star Weekend Slam Dunk Contest at The Boot, but never showed up. Despite the fact that this was completely out of our hands (and we were just as pissed off as you were), we want to show our appreciation for everyone who stuck around all night by offering a free 50 cent night this week.
"Again, we’re sorry for the frustration, so come by, get drunk and maybe get laid and you’ll remember how much fun we used to have together… baby."
