The group of twenty including the Steelers’ Willie Colon, Darnell Stapleton and Trai Essex dined at TAO Asian Bistro, with the hungry athletes devouring most of the menu including Wasabi Filet, Lobster Kimchee Fried Rice, Thai Buddha Chicken and Satay of Miso Glazed Bass. Throughout the meal fans stopped by and they graciously signed autographs.
Upstairs in the nightclub, the scene was no different as fans clamored around their VIP table for pictures and autographs. Pro golfer Anthony Kim joined their table on the dance floor and the group drank Cristal and Grey Goose.
At another table in the club, Nip/Tuck star Kelly Carlson was spotted drinking champagne with a few friends. Also quite a fan magnet, the friendly actress posed for pictures with club goers. She took the LAVO/TAO Escalade golf cart back to The Palazzo, where she is staying, hopping off briefly for one spin at roulette, where her bet on red won.
Over at LAVO inside The Palazzo, Oscar winning actor Adrien Brody dined with TAO Group partner Noah Tepperberg and a group of friends. Dining nearby at LAVO was E! Entertainment Television personality Ben Lyons, who got up from his table to say hello to Brody. Also spotted at the bathhouse inspired destination, reality TV star Kristin Cavalieri, who first found famed on MTV’s Laguna Beach. After dinner all were seen in LAVO’s second floor nightclub partying to the sounds of DJ FIVE. Well past midnight the group traveled via the LAVO/TAO Escalade golf cart to finish the night at TAO.
