So you’ve read about Friday Night of Memorial Day Weekend in Las Vegas being nuts – and I’m here to show you why Saturday night was even nuttier. To start, 98.5 KLUC had their 2009 Summer Jam at the Henderson Pavillion with performances by Hardnox (video on the My Vegas Scene home page), Asher Roth, Soulja Boy and Jesse McCartney. More video on the KLUC Summer Jam 2009 to follow!
After Summer Jam, Soulja Boy headed over to perform at JET Nightclub after the previous night’s performance by Mike Jones. At the same time as Summer Jam, UFC 98 was going on at the MGM Grand Garden Arena! An after party for Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida was hosted at Studio 54 following the event.
Over at LAVO Las Vegas, Mindy Kaling of the hit television show, “The Office” celebrated her 30th birthday early with dinner with college friends. She was resent a huge gold birthday cake, which she offered to share with the entire restaurant! Earlier that evening at TAO Beach, Rapper Asher Roth surprised the packed crowd when he grabbed the mic and gave an impromptu performance of his song, “I Love College.” This was before he headed to the Henderson Pavilion to rock Summer Jam!
The evening festivities – once again at the Palms for the Love Festival! At Nove Italiano, legendary DJ’s Paul Okaenfold and DJ Tiesto both enjoyed dinner. They didn’t eat together, but at one point Tiesto stopped by to say hello to Oakenfold and the two talked for several minutes. At N9NE Steakhouse, comedian Dane Cook enjoyed dinner with three friends, before performing at The Pearl (I went to the show, it was hilarious). Returning for a second night, Jeremy Shockey of the New Orlean Saints ate with Palms owner George Maloof. At a nearby table were NBA players Paul Pierce and former NBA star Sam Cassell. Also spotted from the NBA was Drew Gooden, Juwan Howard, Michael Finley, Steven Jackson, and Andre Johnson.
At Moon Nightclub Las Vegas was Sammy Morris from the New England Patriots and Larry Johnson from the Kansas City Chiefs downstairs at Playboy Club. DJ Paul Oakenfold rocked Rain Nightclub with his Perfecto Las Vegas event while famed DJ Tiesto looked on from a VIP section of the nightclub sipping Perrier Jouet Champagne.
Oh, did I mention that Kendra Wilkinson, Holly Madison and Nicole Richie were spotted at Palms Place pool earlier in the evening?
That’s just SOME of what went down here on Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend Las Vegas 2009. Stay tuned for the recap for Sunday!Tags: Asher Roth, Dane Cook, DJ Tiesto, HardNox, Memorial Day Weekend Las Vegas, Mindy Kaling, Paul Oakenfold, Soulja Boy
