Nicole and Joel Will Take Over Lavo for New Year’s Eve

December 15, 2009

All the stars are coming out for the New Years Eve soirees in Sin City this year. We’re kinda surprised that Paris, LaLohan and Brit Brit haven’t staked claim on hosting any parties – yet. There’s still time and we know these three never pass up an opportunity to kick up their Louboutins in Vegas. Here are three more options to add to your NYE party consideration list:

The Spectacular Spectacular NYE featuring Paul Oakenfold at Rain at Palms. General admission tickets cost $75 (not completely outrageous). Jump to $225 for a host bar from 9 p.m. – 1 a.m. with Ketel One Vodka and Perrier Jouet. $375 will buy you a VIP All Access wristband and express admission to Rain Nightclub, Playboy Club, Moon Nightclub, & Ghostbar. And for an additional Benjamin, you get all of the above, plus the vodka/bubbles hosted bar at all venues from 10 p.m. – 1 a.m., except for Moon Nightclub. Buy your tickets here.

If you want to ring in the New Year with the Playmate Playmates, you may want to think about The Spectacular Spectacular NYE: Maroon 5 After Party at the Playboy Club (also at Palms). Tickets are a bit spendier than the Oakenfold gig – $125 for general admission, but the ticket pricing structure is basically the same as above for host bar and VIP All Access wristband. Buy your tickets here.

Wasn’t Nicole Richie recently placed on bed rest for pneumonia? Anyway, the rehabbed party queen (and mother of two) and her tattooed hubby will be on hand at LAVO at The Venetian for their NYE festivities. While Nicole plays host, hubs Joel Madden will DJ a special set. Tickets run $160 per person and includes entry to LAVO, open bar and passed hors d’oeuvres from 9pm to 11pm, and a champagne toast at midnight. After midnight, flash your LAVO New Year’s Eve ticket stub at TAO Nightclub in The Venetian (where Christina Aguilera is hosting NYE) for complimentary admission. Get your tickets here.  Via: globetrotting gourmet – VegasChatter – Jet Set to Las Vegas for NYE!


Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson Shack Up at the Se San Diego

October 12, 2009

Where: 1047 5th Ave. [map], San Diego, CA, United States, 92101

Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz, his wifey, Melrose Place startlet Ashlee Simpson, and their son Bronx Mowgli checked into the Se San Diego last week.

According to People magazine, the couple rented two condos in the hotel. The condos come with perks like retractable glass walls—to give your room that alfresco feeling—and since the condos are on the upper floors of the 23-story-tall building, they have sweet views of the city. Plus, the condos have chic touches like Nepali carpets, Italian built-in kitchens and islands complete with appliances, and bathrooms with televisions built into the mirrors and steam showers.

The famous fam made the trip to San Diego for Wentz’s gig as a keynote speaker at Billboard’s Mobile Entertainment Live! Fall 2009 Conference. They also managed to find time to hit up the San Diego Zoo, outside of which they checked out the table of tie-dyed shirts. Too bad they didn’t ask their hotel’s complimentary 24-hour concierge—or frankly, anyone—for some better shopping suggestions.  by Jennifer Kester – HotelChatter – For Jet Setters, By Jet Setters!

Jessica Simpson’s New Travel Beauty Show Thing

October 9, 2009

Jessica Simpson of newlywed fame and many subsequent sad tabloid covers is making a comeback of sorts, again in the reality television genre — this time as a traveling reporter on all things beauty. With Jessica as host, she’ll travel around discussing beauty regimes of women in other countries and how the concept of beauty ranges from country to country, woman to woman. The series beings sometime in 2010, but she’s already jetting around and filming spots for the show.

She’s having a little bit of a hard time adjusting to some of the travel sans her usual five-star accommodations. A few weeks back she tweeted “WTF?!? Do I really have to sleep like this?” and posted a photo of her mosquito net-draped bed while filming in Uganda. However, she seemed to get into the swing of things quickly, posting the next day: “LOVED my first day in Uganda meeting incredible women filled with spirit.” A big part of the show will be following JSimp as she tries out foreign beauty treatments. She’s already been to a fattening hut (in Uganda), and a geisha house in Japan. Next up—Morocco. The Price of Beauty, will eventually air on VH1, but you can live vicariously through her tweets, here.  By: Bryce Longton – BlackBook – For Jet Setters, By Jet Setters!

Get Your Tickets To The Playboy Mansion’s Halloween Party Now

October 7, 2009
Where: Los Angeles, CA, United States

Did you watch “The Girls Next Door” religiously back when Holly, Kendra and Bridget were running the Playboy Mansion? Are you in need of Halloween plans in the Los Angeles area? Look no further then the notorious Playboy Halloween Party, for which tickets have just gone on sale, costing about $1,000 each. You’ll be rolling up to party at the mansion of course, but no sleeping over; they’ve set up packages at the Hollywood Roosevelt for that, which is just as full of collagen and nudity anyways.

The official name of the party is the “Kandy Halloween Party at The Playboy Mansion,” since not only will the place be packed with dudes who shelled out the $1,000-$2,000 just for entrance, but also with Kandy models, Playboy bunnies, and “over 1,000 of the sexiest girls in the world.” That’s like paying $1-$2 each, just to be in their presence.

What costs $10,000, after the jump.

For some reason, we always thought that Playboy parties were mainly private affairs, with Hugh celebrating amongst his closest several thousand friends, but nope—any old schmuck with a large bank account can get in. Oh, and any old schmuck can do even better if he’s willing to part with $10,000 to have a table or cabana that evening. It will entitle the buyer to “free flowing bottle service, dedicated Kabana Girl, 2 bottles of Cristal, seating for 8-10, VIP Check-in, security and special Kandy surprises!”

So far, the only celebs we know who will be there are Flo Rida, who is performing, and good old Hugh Hefner, whose girls do the performing for him. They also promise robotic monsters, professional scare actors, expert set designers and lavish haunted décor, so long as you promise to get in the spirit of Halloween. Costumes are mandatory, and there’ll be no throwing on a Scream mask at the last minute; you’ve got to go whole-hog with your getup or face the wrath of the bunnies.

To book your tickets, head to their website at, and enter VIP invitation code “TP3333,” which we hope gives you some fun benefits or something.  by JetSetCD – Jaunted

Paris Hilton All Up In Your Eyes at The Hard Rock This Friday

September 30, 2009

Where: Las Vegas

Paris Hilton apparently has a sunglass line and she will be debuting it this Friday at The Hard Rock from 8pm to 10pm at the pool. The shindig is officially called, “Paris Hilton Fashion Show and VIP Cocktail.” Sorry but not even “VIP Cocktails” (whatever that is) could get us to party with Paris. But we are whores for free shades. Early birds will get Paris Hilton sunglasses for free.  by juliana – VegasChatter – For Jet Setters, By Jet Setters!

Roman Abramovitch Lives The Perfect Vacation On A $90 Million Dollar Chunk Of St. Bart’s

September 22, 2009

Why is it that Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich consistently steals our hopes and dreams and lives them out? The man purchased a $500 million property in the south of France, built himself two mega-yachts with innovative anti-pirate defenses, and he’s even got another yacht on the way. That’s why, with all these playthings already and the fact there’s not enough time in a year to enjoy them, we’re a bit miffed that he would go snatch up a prime chunk of the ritzy Caribbean island of St. Barts for himself.

Roman bought the 70-acre property, with a full beach and Balinese bungalows, for a cool $90 million. If he only spent one weekend in one of his two Colorado ski-in, ski-out properties (um, in July) last year, then when will he find the time to vacation in the Caribbean? Perhaps it’s just a parking space for his three-plus boats?

Forget winning the MegaMillions lottery or working all your life for a quiet retirement full of all-inclusive vacations; it sounds like the best job in the world is to be Abramovich’s pool boy. We volunteer; we’ll even throw in scrubbing barnacles off of his boats. If Abramovich is going to set up shop on a hefty piece of land on one of the world’s most expensive islands, then the least he can do is hire some people who will whistle while they work. Roman, call us. by JetSetCD – Jaunted – VIP Nightlife & Travel

The Hard Rock Cafe Is Now Open On The Strip

September 9, 2009
Where: 3771 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

The new Hard Rock Cafe just a few days before opening.

Finally, there’s a way to enjoy the Hard Rock without actually having to schlep on down to Paradise Avenue and fight through the drunken partiers at the Hard Rock Hotel. The brand’s new Hard Rock Cafe opened on the Strip over the weekend.

We told you back in June, the cafe was getting close to completion and now, the three-story building–with its interactive 18-foot Rock Wall that allows folks to see every bit of Hard Rock rock n’ roll memorabilia and its Rock Shop, for folks who want to take more than just the iconic Hard Rock Cafe t-shirt home with them–is wide-open.

The 42,000-square foot flagship cafe features a 950-seat restaurant, live concert venue and the world’s largest Rock Shop complete with Hard Rock’s limited-edition merchandise. This is Hard Rock’s second cafe location in the Las Vegas market. The original Hard Rock Cafe Las Vegas at Hard Rock Hotel, located at 4475 Paradise Rd., remains open and will continue to provide Rock Star service for guests.

Meanwhile, the Hard Rock hotel just plunked down $48,000 at an auction in Australia for a white glove worn my Michael Jackson in the mid-1990s. No word on which place it will end up but we think the new Strip location might get more foot traffic.  by juliana – VegasChatter
