When rapper Jay-Z celebrates an anniversary he likes to celebrate in style. He took wife Beyonce to Cuba for a headline-stealing fifth anniversary trip earlier this year and now the Jigga man will be giving the 10th anniversary of his 40/40 Club a similarly high-profile treatment.
According to Black Enterprise:
Honored guests, stars, VIP and members of Major League Baseball’s prestigious 40/40 club are expected to join Jay-Z to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the opening of the 40/40 club in New York City on Monday, June 17. The venue officially opened on June 18, 2003.
As for an appearance by a certain Grown Woman? The North American leg of her tour kicks off at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on June 28, some 11 days later. Said an insider who wouldn’t confirm her attendance: “Where else would she be?”
Guests are receiving a baseball enclosed with the club’s logo which says “Jay-Z Invites You.”
The anniversary event comes after the lounge reopened after closing last spring for renovations, said to cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $10 million.
“The updated New York flagship location includes 12,000 square feet of space, a 20′ x 20′ illuminated bar, an 18-foot tall champagne fountain, leather upholstered wall panels, and more than thirty 55-inch flat screen television monitors,” publicity for the newly-minted club said in January.
