Jay-Z’s swank sports bar The 40/40 Club played host to Duracell Powermat’s PowerHouse event, co-sponsored by video social network SocialCam and Mario Armstrong Media. The event attracted some of social media’s most influential tastemakers and highlighted the Duracell Powermat, an inventive system designed to keep mobile users powered up while on the go.
While the hoi polloi gathered in the main lounge, VIPs such as myself partied in the Jay-Z suite, where the club served complimentary cocktails (courtesy of D’usse) and delicious bites to eat.

A cocktail made from vodka, cognac (I think), simple syrup, and club soda.
All in all, I had a great time. Met some cool people (shout out to Elaine, Ken, and Carrie Da Boot!), ate so much that I didn’t even have dinner afterward, and partied like a social media rock star (even though I took very few pics and little video).
After arriving home, I saw a tweet from Mr. Mike Street announcing that Jay-Z made an appearance. I figured that was going to happen as Jigga is Duracell Powermat’s celebrity spokesperson. Ah well. Next time.
