Mark Salling of “Glee” didn’t let a little rain stop him as he kicked off a party at Tao Beach at the Venetian celebrating his new solo album, ”Pipe Dreams”, which also raises awareness for the American Red Cross. Salling, who plays Puck on the hit show, was joined by “Glee” co-star Chord Overstreet, who plays Sam, and a few friends. The group drank strawberry mojitos and snacked on crispy rice while braving the sudden rainstorm sitting poolside.
The party continued Saturday night at Tao at the Venetian, where Hollywood royalty Rumer Willis met up with the group. She returned to Tao for the first time since celebrating her 21st birthday at the hot spot last year. They all dined under Tao’s Buddha before hitting the club, where Salling was surprised with a cake recognizing both the album and his love for birds — he is an avid bird watcher and rescuer. Willis made her way to the deejay booth to say hi to friend DJ Vice and request a few songs while girls in the club clamored to get close to Salling, who graciously posed for photos. Overstreet seemed to have eyes for Willis, but the newly single actress was happy just to bounce around the club and dance.
Also spotted up in the nightclub, Stacy Keibler and a group of 15 friends enjoying Cristal, Patron and Grey Goose, while Bam Margera partied with his wife and a group of friends at another VIP table.
Brian Baumgartner from “The Office” dined on lobster wontons and Yellowtail jalapeño with a small group before heading up to the nightclub to join the owner’s table.
At Lavo at the Palazzo, Joan Rivers returned with friends for the third night in a row to enjoy her favorites including the Kobe meatball, sea bass and chicken marsala, along with Veuve Clicquot Champagne and wine.
On Friday night, Kim Kardashian was spotted at Lavo with Jonathan Cheban of “The Spin Crowd,” which Kardashian produces. The two hit the nightclub with a large group and danced to the sounds of DJ Galeano while sipping water.
Baumgartner from “The Office” dined on Lavo’s terrace, enjoying heirloom tomato salad and short rib risotto with Tao Group partner Jason Strauss.
Over at Tao on Friday, Crunchy from Three Six Mafia was joined by friends in the nightclub. The group enjoyed Ketel One cocktails while taking in the sounds of DJ Reach.
