On party safari, Parrot Jungle is only quarry

Scenes From Miami

Super Bowl

February 04, 2007|By PETER SCHMUCK | PETER SCHMUCK,Sun Reporter

It's been a weeklong party in South Florida, but the Super Bowl hospitality moved to another level this weekend with star-studded events thrown byMaxim, Playboy and the NFL.

The commissioner's party was themed "Passport to Paradise" and was held at Parrot Jungle, an exotic animal park here in Miami. Singer Jon Secada performed a live concert in the main pavilion. I had the sushi and something called jungle juice. Don't remember much after that.

Tried hard to get an invitation to the Maxim party, but was shut out for the third year in a row. There is a pecking order for these things, which explains (groan) why I ended up at Parrot Jungle.

Didn't even make an attempt to get into the Playboy bash. The whole thing with Hugh Hefner and the roommates kind of creeps me out. Hef is so old I heard the bar was serving formaldehyde on the rocks.
