KINGS of nightlife

You know, people can say what they want about Billy Dec and his self-promoting ways for his highly visible Rockit Ranch Productions, which also includes partners Brad Young and Arturo Gomez.
But one thing is for certain: They're respected by their peers, especially the ones who awarded them "Operator of the Year" at the Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show's annual Five Star Awards Dinner last night in Las Vegas. Wow. They beat out New York, LA, Miami and Vegas!
The guys behind Rockit Bar & Grill (22 W. Hubbard St., 312-645-6000) and Underground (56 W. Illinois St., 312-644-7600) are on their way back to Chicago now, so look out for an interview on what went down later today.
