Former NFL player Chad Johnson to host party in Dallas

Posted 11:22pm on Tuesday, Sep. 10, 2013

Former NFL star wide receiver Chad Johnson -- known to many as Chad Ocho Cinco for his jersey number in Spanish during his time in the league -- is hosting the 'VIP of Dallas presents A LIST Sundays at Monroe' on Sept. 15.

Monore Lounge is the new exclusive venue located at 3001 Knox St. Suite 210 in Uptown, the spot that previously housed the popular Wish Ultralounge and prior to that, the Drama Room. Monroe is owned by former Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints defensive tackle Remi Ayodele. Ayodele was a member of the 2009 Saints Super Bowl XLIV championship team and was part of the ownership group of the popular AM/PM Lounge in downtown Dallas that played host to the biggest event of the 2010 NBA All-Star Game at Cowboys Stadium festivities in DFW -- the All-Star Celebrity Experience party hosted by LeBron James and Drake.

As for this weekend's party, it is part of the new series called A LIST Sundays with this week's host being the legendary Chad Johnson. During his six-time Pro Bowl NFL career with the Cincinnati Bengals, New England Patriots and a short stint with the Miami Dolphins that played out on HBO's Hard Knocks, Johnson became known for his antics as well as his stellar play on the field. In addition to playing football, Johnson was also a reality show darling as he appeared on Dancing with the Stars, VH1's Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch and The T. Ocho Show on Versus.

He made news this past June when he was sentenced to 30 days in jail for a probation violation in a domestic violence case by a judge who suddenly rejected a no-jail plea deal after Johnson playfully slapped his attorney on the backside in the courtroom. The same judge would set Johnson free a few days later. As of this week, the news for Johnson was positive as he landed a job with CBS Sports as a fantasy football analyst.

The party on Sept. 15 is the second in the A LIST Sundays at Monroe following last week's inaugural bash hosted by Dallas Cowboys corrnerback Orlando Scandrick. The series is put on by DRIZZE INC., WWEG & Ikon Entertainment. The party runs from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. and bottle service is available by calling call (469) 300-1212.
