Jessica Lucas, star of “Melrose Place” and the upcoming NBC series “Friends With Benefits,” celebrated her 25th birthday at the Palazzo with a large group of friends Friday and Saturday.
Lucas looked every bit the Hollywood starlet in a stunning black asymmetrical dress and they took fun group shots in the suite before heading down to Azure Luxury Pool for Festivino, a celebration of Bordeaux wine. The group tried wines from each of the tasting stations and talked with wine experts from the Palazzo and the Venetian. Lucas loved the beautiful Las Vegas Strip view from the rotunda where the group danced to the beats of the deejay. They wasted no time digging in to a cake shaped like a wine bottle presented by Gimme Some Sugar. Lucas was shocked with how realistic the cake looked and was so excited it was red velvet, her favorite kind.
During the day on Saturday, Lucas and friends went back to Azure to soak up the sun while sipping Champagne cocktails and playing volleyball in the pool. Saturday night was the final birthday bash as Lucas celebrated with dinner and dancing at Lavo restaurant and nightclub. She sat at a VIP table in the club for the sounds of DJ Crooked.
At Tao Beach Club at the Venetian on Saturday, Havana Brown provided the soundtrack for the party on Saturday, spinning for the packed pool. The sexy Australian deejay, who is known for her work with Britney Spears, took over in the deejay booth to entertain a crowd that included Taye Diggs. The star of ABC’s “Private Practice” was at the hot spot with a friend taking in the sun and enjoying Tao Beach’s signature cocktails.
Saturday night, Raven Symone dined at Tao Asian Bistro with her boyfriend. The actress sipped pineapple Mojitos while feasting on favorites including lobster wontons and crispy rice before hitting the club.
