PIN UP’s lead vocalist Lisa Marie Smith and boyfriend, Rock of Ages actor/singer Paul Johnson, celebrated Paul’s birthday on Sunday, July 13, at Emmy-Award winning chef Giada De Laurentiis’ first-ever restaurant, GIADA in The Cromwell at The LINQ shopping, dining and entertainment complex in Las Vegas.
The celebrity couple’s pal Anthony Pecora helped them get a reservation at the popular new Italian restaurant.
“We enjoyed a five-course meal, and everything was beyond exceptional!,” said Lisa Marie. “It’s fine dining in a very down-to-earth and personal atmosphere. We celebrated early before we both jetted off to our individual shows tonight! Paul just started as Joey Primo in Rock of Ages.”
