And your Wednesday Weekend Top Events post is back! After the Blizzard of 2011 knocked out internet and being in New York for the Ticket Summit, we will continue with your regularly scheduled program!
This upcoming weekend features of a number of exciting events! One of the more exciting events in the Daytona 500 happening at the Daytona Speedway in, can you guess, Daytona, Florida. They Daytona 500 is one of four restrictor plate races on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule. Jamie McMurray is the current defending champion of the race. The Daytona 500 is thought of as the most significant and important race on the NASCAR schedule, carrying the largest purse by a landslide. Those in attendance are only superseded by those watching the races on TV. The temperatures in Daytona should be around the mid 60’s, a huge welcome for most of the people traveling to this event.
The Boston Celtics are sweeping up the ratings for this weekend as well while they host both the LA Lakers and Miami Heat, 2 teams that also definitely draw crowds. The Heat obviously features the phenoms of Dwayne Wade, Lebron James and Chris Bosh. James and Wade were selected to be starters for the Eastern Conference at the All-Star Game, becoming the second pair of teammates to be selected as All-Star starters in franchise history. According to Forbes Magazine, the Lakers are the second most valuable NBA Franchise with an estimated value of $643 in 2011. That’s not too shabby, eh? The Celtics hold their own with their “Boston Three Party” of Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce made famous by a series of strategic moves in 2007 by GM Danny Ainge.
Other events of note are County superstar, Brad Paisley, on his H2O Frozen Over Tour featuring Darius Rucker and Jerrod Niemann. Nickelodeon’s pop princess, Miranda Cosgrove also displays her talents in New York City. Sure to be included in her concert is her hit song “Dancing Crazy” which within three weeks of airplay, debuted at number 40 on the US Billboard Adult Pop Songs. Comedian Kevin Hart is also always another great event with his quirky and hilarious styling. He’s done several stand-up tv specials for Comedy Central already.
