The Flashing lights from the photographers and video crews lit up Camden Drive from 8pm to well past midnight, capturing the stars at their first stop before going into the restaurant. Upon entering the lavish restaurant guest were escorted to their table where they enjoyed delectable cuisine and drinks while IGA artist such as El DeBarge, Mishon, Soulja Boy Tell Em, and Diddy-Dirty Money performed for the crowd. 

Mr. Chow converted their private parking lot in to a miniature sound stadium to accommodate the lively performances. In the later evening, the event had so many guests trying to attend that Drake has to be escorted in through the back exit. The overwhelming popularity of this event was pre-cautioned for this year with the street closure on Camden Drive. Guest left the event singing praises of the delightful food, wonderful entertainment, lovely ambience and swag that were filled with goodies. The anticipation has already begun to brew for next year’s event.
