Pimps protested in Maywood, Bishop Don Magic Juan a no show?
On Saturday, Chicago Sun-Times columnist Mary Mitchell wrote about an upcoming "Players Ball" hosted by the infamous pimp Don Magic Juan. According to Mitchell:
After a meet-and-greet downtown, the pimps will gather at Mariella, which by the way is located directly across the street from the Maywood Police Department, and party.
According to The Bishop's Web site, VIP tickets to the event cost $300. At those prices, you'd think the pimps would strut their stuff at the Hilton or Fairmont or Palmer House hotels.
The fact that The Bishop is coming to Maywood could mean only one of two things: Either Maywood is coming up in the world as an entertainment destination, or the unseemly fascination with pimps and ho's has finally run its course, and The Bishop, who is usually seen hanging out with Snoop Dogg and Ice-T, is on his way down.

Who knew the Bishop had a website (windycitywatch.com was unable to find it via google), but what was surprising it appears the attention and the resulting protests scared him and others away as today's Sun-Times reports:
As the ball was across from the Maywood Police Department, a handful of officers were already outside the banquet hall when the protest began shortly after 5 p.m. Police remained outside after all but a few of the protesters had left by 7:30 p.m. "We're going to be very observant," said acting Police Chief Donald Mobley, who said he supported the protesters. "If we find any illegal activity, we're going to act on it."
As of late Saturday, there were no problems, police said. By 10 p.m. only a couple dozen partygoers had arrived. "The Bishop" was not among them, police said.

One alleged player chose to defend the party.
One partygoer, who called himself Mighty Brown, defended the party. "Everybody participating in this is an entrepreneur, a businessman as far as helping people eat," said Brown, who wore a wide-brimmed tan hat and a light brown suit with a knee-length coat. "Women, or ladies of the night, are doing it because they want to do it. It's a lot of misconception about us guys."
