Recap: Snooki and the Pickle Palooza at Power Plant Live

can you spot the guidette? snooki, center, has her photo taken  with a few upstanding young ladies in Baltimore last week.Pint-sized powerhouse Snooki brought her guidette glamor to Baltimore last Thursday for Pickle Palooza at Power Plant Live.

The "Jersey Shore" star jump-started her night with dinner at RA Sushi (an odd choice, considering RA Sushi doesn't serve Snooki's favorite food: pickles).

Sources say the Snookster slurped on some sake bombs and tried to fist pump with chopsticks in her hand. Now that's hard core "Jersey Shore" style.

At 10:30 p.m., Snickas hit up Power Plant Live, and spent the rest of the night bouncing back and forth between Luckie's Tavern and Mex.

According to Power Plant marketing director Chris Furst, it was quite the night ...

"I was the most skeptical person going into it, and it turned out to be one of the best appearances we've ever had," he said. "She was an absolute hit with everybody."

Snooki snapped photos, had drinks and munched on some pickles the Power Plant Live crew gave her (she threw a few pickles into the audience, too). She also climbed on stage at Luckie's and requested songs from the DJ. 

"It was a blast," Furst said.

I'd like to take a moment and officially announce my campaign to have Baltimore renamed Jersey Shore South. Half the cast of the hit MTV reality show made appearances in Baltimore last month. The Situation guest bartended at Mad River J-WOWW was reportedly at Mist.

Snooki seems to have been the biggest hit of all so far.

Before we go, I'd like to share a quick joke I heard from Editor Tim:

Q. What do Snooki and Garfield have in common?

A. They're both orange and love lasagna.

Snicker snicker.

How can I be in Snooks entourage?

I personally love Snooki. I wish I could of have been there to see her. She is just so fun and entertaining.


Snooki who?

Come on Sam, give credit where it's due. That's a SNL skit. The other:

Snooki: "You can call me Spaulding now."

Seth: "Why?"

Snooki: "Cause I'm round, I'm orange and I get passed around by a lot of sweaty dudes!"

Does that goofball get paid for these public appearances? Didn't she get punched in the face on one of "The Jersey Shore" episodes? Now I would pay to see that for sure. B.

Well, that certainly puts the nail in the coffin of my opinion of RA.
