Actor Will Smith was spotted dining with Marc Anthony, Romeo Santos and friends at Tao Asian Bistro at the Venetian on Saturday night. The group ordered satay of Chilean sea bass and Kobe ribeye with Yuzu cilantro butter before they headed to Marquee Nightclub at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas for the night.

Actor and musician Jamie Foxx was also seen having dinner at Tao with a large group of friends. They ordered the chicken wing lollipops, satay of Chilean sea bass and Chinese five spice short ribs. Foxx was seen walking around the restaurant chatting with the tables surrounding him and taking the time to pose for photos before heading to Tao Nightclub.

“Vampire Diaries” stars Paul Wesley, Daniel Gillies and Matt Davis were also spotted at the Asian-inspired restaurant ordering signature dishes. Joining them were fellow actors Josh Bowman, best known for his role on ABC’s “Revenge” and Charles Michael Davis of “The Originals” and “Grey’s Anatomy” fame.

Entertainment icon Snoop Dogg returned to host his 1920s-themed Snoopadelic Cabaret residency upstairs at Tao Nightclub. Snoop made his way to the DJ booth to kick off his Snoopadelic set. Later, as Snoop transitioned from the DJ booth to the venue’s main stage to perform, partygoers were surprised as rappers Bow Wow and Wiz Khalifa jumped in the booth in his place. Mid-performance, Wiz Khalifa joined Snoop on stage to perform their club anthem “Young, Wild and Free” to the ecstatic crowd. After Snoop finished the performance of his most iconic hits, he returned to the DJ booth to kick off his second DJ Snoopadelic set. The surprises kept coming as actor and Grammy-nominated musician Jamie Foxx hopped in the booth alongside the man of the hour to sing an a cappella version of “Gold Digger.” After the impromptu performance, Foxx manned the booth as Snoop went out into the middle of the room on the venue’s catwalk to dance and interact with the crowd. Rapper 2 Chainz also joined Snoop in the DJ booth and hopped on the mic for a bit.

Revelers were not the only ones being surprised throughout the night. Snoop sent out a surprise birthday cake to Wiz Khalifa, who celebrated his 27th birthday last week. Facial expressions of love and gratitude took over the rapper’s face as he stood hugging his mother and he then proceeded to bite off the top of the cake.

Actor and comedian Dax Shepard was also spotted in the crowd at a VIP table with friends.
