The mystery, fantasy and intrigue of the Moorish Empire came to life at the California Club as the Los Angeles Master Chorale held its splashy “Scheherazade Ball.” The whimsical theme was inspired by the 300th Anniversary of “1001 Arabian Nights.” The evening featured exotic delicacies, belly dancers, swordsmen, magic carpets and elaborate costumes.

Guests were also treated to a special surround sound sing-along. The event raised $350,000 to keep the chorale humming along.


Sir Mick and the sexagenarians Stone may be strutting their increasingly creaky stuff at this Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime extravaganza, but NFL organizers caused a stir when they imposed an age limit for fans on the field.

If you wanted to rock out with the Midnight Rambler, they said, you’d better be under the age of 45. Show planners reckoned that all that moving and grooving was too physically demanding for older folks who’d be better off dancing in the shadows.

But those senior Stones fans would not fade away. In the end, the NFL lifted the ban and now rockers of any age can shimmy to their sa-tis-faction.

There’s no question that being on stage keeps the Stones in shape, but with a combined age of 246 years, let’s hope we won’t see any wardrobe malfunctions.


In other NFL news, there’s more to the Super Bowl than just TDs by men in tights. Over at the Los Angeles Coliseum, they’ll be kicking off a different kind of “tail gate” party called Lingerie Bowl III.

The matchup features leggy models playing full-contact football in thongs, teddies and push-up bras.

The sexy spectacle even has its own commissioner. And who better to fit the bill than always-outrageous Dennis Rodman.

“Scary Movie’s” Jenny McCarthy and “Austin Powers” Fembot Cindy Margolis will be hosting the show, which features MTV’s Trishelle Cannatella as QB for the New York Euphoria, WWE’s Christy Hemme leading the Chicago Bliss, Playboy pin-up Katie Lohman heading up the Los Angeles Temptation and songbird Willa Ford for the Dallas Desire.

In addition to a rather racy display of underwear, the lingerie lovelies will be getting some professional pointers. Former Chicago Bears defensive tackle William the “Refrigerator” Perry is being called in as team coach. Hut!
