What: Cupid’s Undie Run
Where: Lucky’s Tavern
When: Saturday, February 14th// 2:00 pm
No naked mile has ever felt as good as Cupid’s Undie Run! Why? Because when you run this mile you’re helping raise money for the Children’s Tumor Foundation! Last year, the foundation raised $2.8 million dollars, all thanks to those ambitious runners who participated. Now, I know what you’re thinking. Who would want to run around in their underwear in the middle of February? Sure, the cold weather is unbearable, and maybe you’re not feeling so hot about your bod because you’ve been able to hide the winter pounds under baggy sweaters and winter coats, but once you and the hundreds of other bare-bodied runners cross the finish line, the only thing you’ll be thinking about is the good deed you’ve done, and the super fun pre-game and after party! This is your chance to spread the love with a good workout, great company, and incredible cause! Plus, you can flaunt your craziest Valentine’s Day get-up (or lack thereof)! Register for this crazy love-run here!

The NBA has been buzzing after Commissioner Adam Silver’s comments regarding the possibility of an adjusted playoff system. It’s looking like adjustment might be necessary seeing as some great Western Conference teams and players may miss the playoffs.
In the Western Conference, there are five teams that are separated by less than eight games, and two of those teams will not get to make the playoffs even though they are all above a .500 record. Whereas in the Eastern Conference, the seven and eight-seed teams are both at least seven games below the .500 mark.
Currently, New Orleans and MVP candidate Anthony Davis, and Oklahoma City sit on the outside looking in. That could very easily change with the Clippers losing Blake Griffin for an indefinite amount of time due to elbow surgery to treat a staph infection. Read the rest of this entry »

Yes, you may have noticed we’ve been gone for a month. The WLOY servers decided they were going to go on holiday to Bucharest over Christmas and they just lost track of time, then they missed their train to the airport and the flights got cancelled, they were rerouted through Kuala Lumpur and finally landed in Hong Kong. After a brief layover there, they were finally rested up enough to return home to their rightful place in the core… Now they’re back and we’re getting them back to work. Thanks for bearing with us during that mess. Expect a lot of updates, including videos from interviews and lots more. Meanwhile, we also scheduled a veritable ton (seriously, if we put all these bands on a really big scale they would way at least 2,000 pounds) of great acts for our free Thursday night shows. Watch for the posters around town and lots of posts here. Don’t forget to jump on our various social media sites to keep up as well: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr and SnapChat. Bonus points if your friend us on MySpace 😉
