Valley bar and club owners have been busting much ass recently in preparation for this weekend's All-Star Game, and Gary and Renetta Slone are no exception.

The couple's new nightspot/restaurant Open Gallery Bar & Grill (5025 North Seventh Avenue, 602-277-0323), will make its debut tomorrow night and they've been spending countless hours getting everything ready.

Having taken over the location previously occupied by Tio Leo's Mexican Grill & Cantina (which closed last summer), the owners say have completely refurbished the place in "upscale grown and sexy" fashion. Some of the highlights of the new décor include TVs in the floor and a cool mural (pictured above) adorned with the faces of Prince, Tupac, and J-Lo.

Gary told me that during the day it will be more of a restaurant, but after dark the spot becomes a nightclub called OG's. Their aim, he explains, is to cater to hip-hop/R&B scenesters as well as hipster types. To that end, they're planning future nights devoted to jazz, blues, neo-soul, and alternative music.

"That's why it's called 'open,' because we want to serve many different kinds of people and not just one specific crowd," Gary says.

They're expecting a huge crowd this weekend, and with good reason. Starting tomorrow night through Sunday, Open Gallery will put on some hot-sounding after hours All-Star parties hosted by an array off high-profile hip-hop artists, including Jim Jones on Friday/Saturday and Akon on Sunday.

A Man who scams the state of AZ for 4.5 million dollars, and has at least 5 baby momma's out there and a wife to boot, is not a man who anyone should trust. 


Only a hater would put this on here. Why want you state your real name. Yes I had a misdemeanor and what is it your concern Lilia. You need to worry about you because if I didn't have a felony as yourself lying that you could of had it squash and you couldn't. Lying to people about me telling my business. God does not like ugly and you r a very ugly person.


If anyone knows this man you know he is not a scammer or a liar. He had a partner Lilia Mora who was the scammer and liar. She embezzle money and lie to this man to the point he lost his businesses. How is he a scammer when he build his wealth. Before you judge a person find out fact. It is funny to me of who did he scam. Look up Lilia mora and ask her Why she lied about her criminal record. The replies you see is from her. She made everyone think she was the victim. She was the poison.
