Paris Hilton pulled up in front of the Whisky. She parked illegally. She had no license plates. Her car was cool.

These are the only pictures of her entering the Whisky. Most people were bored.

Pete Yorn played for an hour. I heard a Smiths cover song.

By the time Paris and her friend left the club, ten guys with cameras were there and two guys who were autograph seekers.
