Saturday proved to be a “Pawn Star” party at Ghostbar Dayclub at the Palms when the show’s popular character Chumlee (real name Austin Russell) hit the turn tables for his first-ever DJ set. Joined by 50 of his closest friends, including co Pawn Stars Rick Harrison and Corey Harrison, DJ Chumlee kept the party going with his hour-long hip-hop set, getting the crowd primed with a French Montana and Jay-Z remix.
True to previous reports, the club fulfilled Chum’s talent rider request and had boxes of his favorite Thin Mints and Peanut Butter Patties Girl Scout cookies delivered to his table alongside six bottles of Luc Belaire champagne, a regular bottle of Ciroc vodka, a magnum of Ciroc vodka and a bottle of Don Julio Tequila.
Chumlee mentioned that he has been preparing all year for this and that fans can expect “more Pawn stars and more DJ sets” from him in 2015.
Earlier in the afternoon Chumlee hosted a meet and greet for contest winners at the casino’s popular center bar Social where he ran into Nick Lachey, host of VH1’s “Big Morning Buzz,” who happened to be drinking with buddies including former NFL quarterback Matt Leinart while in town for a friend’s bachelor party. The two posed for photos and chatted about Chum’s upcoming debut set.
Also, partying separately at GBDC Aaron Goodwin, host of TV’s “Ghost Adventures” on Travel Channel.
