Chris Brown and Drai’s nightclub in Las Vegas have officially chosen to let bygones be bygones.
Months after crooner Chris Brown had his residency at the Vegas hot spot snatched away from him, TMZ reports that Breezy is back in the club’s good graces.
Apparently, all it took was a sit-down conversation between Brown and the management team at Drai’s to work out their differences with one another. The financial benefit of the singer’s return (for both parties) may have also served as a motivating factor.
“We both value the relationship and look forward to having Chris back in front of his fans again,” a rep for Drai’s revealed to TMZ.
Watch 4,000-plus exotic fish swimming in the colorful Silverton Aquarium. There are “mermaids” swimming in 117,000-gallon reef aquarium and the mermaids swim among the fish and interacting with visitors watching from the outside. The mermaids are more than just pretty ladies donning colorful fins and bikini tops. These women have various backgrounds, from synchronized and competitive swimming to ballet. You’ll see them twirl, flip, dance and do other fun stunts — you would almost believe they really are part-fish!
You may wonder how the mermaids breathe underwater, since they’re swimming in the tank 15 minutes at a time. Every mermaid is scuba-certified and gets air from hookah ports throughout the tank. In addition to the mermaids, you can also sometimes catch divers feeding stingrays. During the feedings, there’s a guide outside the tank who’ll take questions from the audience. The divers have a built-in speaker in their suit and can answer anything you want to know about the fish
