People who headed over to Fluid Nightclub after The Roots Picnic this past Saturday were greeted with a special edition of FlyGirrl's Tasty Treats party that paid tribute to the purple one, Prince. Regular party go-ers, as well as various celebrities who were in town for the concert, celebrated the 50th Birthday of Prince by dancing the night away to some of the greatest songs in his catalog.
This event was the first of a series of special events happening at Tasty Treats in June to kick off the summer season. This Saturday June 14th, they are bringing DJ Ali Shaheed Muhammad into town.
