Downtown already is showing signs of the influx for NBA All-Star week. Where are the big stars staying? I’m not going to be the first to let the cat out of the bag, but I will tell you that P. Diddy, Beyonce, and Nelly are staying at the same hotel. And it’s a boutique-type hotel downtown. On my way home from the office tonight, there was a police car parked on every downtown block all the way to Broadway. There’s a lot of men on horses, traveling in a pack, all dressed the same, but not in police uniforms. Undercover? If so, no one could miss them, especially when all the cars behind them have to wait because they decide to take a left turn, en masse. There’s also a helicopter circling above downtown, two hours after rush hour ended, so it’s not for traffic control. Let the fun begin!
