Michael Jordan will look to have quite the impressive birthday party.credit: celebritycarz.com Michael Jordan has been in the news a lot lately, for a variety of strange reasons. During LeBron James’ recent hot streak, the comparisons between the two have been a hot topic of conversation, once again. Then, we found out that the soon-to-be 50-year-old Michael Jordan beat Michael Kidd-Gilchrist in a game of one-on-one. Now, we have found out that for his 50th birthday party, Michael Jordan will be forking over $100,000 to rent out a museum in Houston. Yes, you read that right. Via CBS: Jordan has had several local agents scouting the perfect spot for his party, which early plans outlined as a private dinner for 100 followed by a concert for 200 additional guests, according to one representative. Sources tell CultureMap that MJ considered the well-publicized $20 million Houston Mansion for his fete, and discussed borrowing Tilman Fertitta’s swanky River Oaks residence for the night, but ultimately decided upon the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston as the prime venue for celebration. One can imagine the second floor of the Caroline Wiess Law Building, overlooking the exhibition in the main gallery below, would be the perfect spot for an intimate dinner (presumably courtesy of City Kitchen Catering). Renting the MFAH costs a pretty penny — a “donation” of $100,000 — not to mention the added costs of valet attendants, catering and drink, security detail and special performers, but that’s a drop in the bucket for a baller like His Airness. Would you expect anything else out of Jordan for his 50th birthday party? For a guy who doesn’t mind spending his fair share of money in the casino, on the golf course, and on the Bobcats, what’s $100,000 anyway? Must be nice to be able to toss around that kind of dough, huh? -Mark Evans, Assistant Manager/Editor of Content Follow us on Twitter The post Michael Jordan Paid $100K To Rent Out Museum For Birthday appeared first on Pass The Pill.
