Things started getting a tad emotional this past weekend at Barcelona, especially as the clock ticked towards 2 a.m. early on Sunday morning.
As was reported a few weeks back, the posh north Scottsdale nightspot/restaurant was throwing its final hurrah in its current form due to an impending summertime renovation, and tears began flowing as the last last call approached. Dawn Jameson, the hottie co-vocalist for house band Generation, got particularly misty, as did a few of the places cougar regulars. Toasts were given, final words were offered, and the stylish joint got sent out in, well, style.
Long before attendees started busting out with the waterworks, however, the place was the site of much revelry. It was standing room only as Jameson and her vocalist partner David Hernandez (of American Idol fame) provided high-energy covers of Top 40 hits and the naughty ladies of burlesque troupe Scandalesque steamed things up.
Take a gander at our slideshow from the evening to see what else happened.
