The gatekeeper of America's most popular nightclub is a 33-year-old man known to NBA players simply as "Purple." And tonight he's busy. The industry's top DJ shouts on the mic announcing the player's presence while he and his friends are ushered by security to the club's top table.A former high school dropout who rose to become the go-to guy for nightlife in Miami, on this night Purple gets a text, makes some arrangements, and now he's meeting his "friends" through a secret side door of the famous LIV nightclub, the portal to an underground network beneath the famed Fontainebleau hotel in Miami Beach."Ever seen the movie 'Goodfellas,' when he takes his girl underground? "They love the whole walking underground thing."Purple's friend is an NBA star, and that star emerges from the shadowy labyrinth to a packed, 18,000-square-foot nightclub and a dance floor full of beautiful people. Bottles of Hennessy cognac, Don Julio 1942 tequila and Armand de Brignac champagne, a bottle famously known as the Ace of Spades, all appear.
It's everything you think of when you imagine the star-athlete lifestyle. It's happening, these days, far less than you think.
"The Maid" is the 175th episode of the NBC sitcom Seinfeld.
