If you didn’t know her before, you probably do now. Michelle Fields is a political journalist for Breitbart, Fox News contributor and believe it or not, a decent human being. So weird, right? As a decent human being, Michelle experiences a lot of the same things that decent human beings …

We came. We saw. We conquered Miami. Dayton, you’re next.

We’re not sure what’s hotter: The Miami HEAT  or our party at FIFTY. If you missed our event last night, it went a little something like this, but with less experienced break dancers.
