Haute Event: LeBron James Returns to Tao; Twilight Stars Host at Lavo

LeBron James hosted the evening at Tao at the Venetian.

After partying at Lavo on Friday, LeBron James continued his weekend long Vegas celebration at Tao Beach and Tao at the Venetian on Saturday. King James arrived to cheers was joined in the grand cabana by a group of friends including new Miami Heat teammate Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul of the New Orleans Hornets. At one point the fans in the pool chanted his name and LeBron pulled out his camera to capture the moment. Nearby, former NBA player Alan Henderson and Glen Davis from the Boston Celtics also took in the sun and the scene.

Michelle Williams
from Destiny’s Child returned for a second day at Tao Beach and was later spotted dining at Lavo with a group of friends before hitting Tao Nightclub, where LeBron James was hosting for the night.

James and nearly 30 friends including Paul feasted at Tao on signature items including satay bass, lobster wontons and Kobe ribeye. He took time out of his dinner to greet fans including a five-year-old girl and her mother who came to Tao just for the chance of possibly meeting the NBA star. After dinner they headed up to the club and commanded several tables on the dance floor where the cocktail waitresses were dressed in Miami Heat jerseys to honor James’ new team. He was surprised by a cake from Gimme Some Sugar in the shape of a king’s crown and spent the night taking in the sounds of DJ Vice.

At Lavo at the Palazzo, Julia Jones, Tinsel Korey and Alex Meraz from the Twilight Wolf Pack hosted at the nightclub. The trio along with friends enjoyed Kobe meatballs, shrimp scampi, filet, sea bass and Oreo zeppole for dessert, along with wine and cocktails. Up in the nightclub they danced and took photos with fans. Actor Ethan Embry and his wife Sunny also joined the group.

Also spotted in the nightclub at Lavo was Rafer Alston. The NBA free agent was celebrating his 34th birthday with Grey Goose cocktails and the occasional shot of Patron.
