So I got a press release recently about Rutina Wesley making a personal appearance at Mohegan Sun this coming Saturday and it reminded me that I have never given due credit to my good friend Annmarie’s terrific turn back in 2009 as everybody’s favorite telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse. Another friend and I dressed up as slutty vampire brides (from Van Helsing) and “Sookie” still overshadowed us with her tight little tee and hotpants. How were we supposed to compete with that?!  Belated as it is, here’s a tip of the hat and a swig of True Blood in recognition of my buddy’s rendition of Sook. Will you be visiting Bon Temps for Halloween this year?

Attention Tara Thornton fans: if you don’t have plans for October 27 and are within a train ride of Uncasville, CT, Mohegan Sun is serving up a chance to meet the gorgeous Rutina Wesley in person. Rutina, who’s getting sexier by the minute as the newest baby vamp on True Blood, is making a personal appearance at Mohegan Sun’s Signings & Sightings as part of the entertainment complex’s slate of Halloween celebrations. Rutina will sign autographs for fans wearing special bracelets that will be handed out in the concourse of The Shops at Mohegan Sun to gain entry to the signing. The event starts at 9 p.m. and distribution of the bracelets starts at 8 p.m.  Participation is on a first-come, first-served basis and they’re expecting a big turnout so make sure to get there early to claim your spot in line. As it happens, Rutina, who will also be stopping by the Halloween Costume Party taking place on the patio of Todd English’s Tuscany later that night, has Las Vegas roots. Her dad was a tap dancer and her mom was a showgirl so I guess greeting fans at a big casino is a homecoming of sorts for her.
