The “Saved by the Bell” alumnus, Courtney, and a group of 10 close friends got the party started Friday night taking in a performance of Le Reve – The Dream featuring breathtaking acrobatics, captivating dancing and synchronized swimming choreography. After the jaw-dropping show, Mario met the cast and posed for photographs.

Mario and his party then dined at celebrity hot spot Andrea’s where they shared executive chef Joseph Elevado’s Asian fare including a variety of sushi and sashimi, specialty rolls, chili shrimp tempura, tuna tataki salad, New York strip steak, miso black cod and more. Mario kept refreshed with Andrea’s signature Sinatra Smash cocktails while Courtney, looking fetching in a black leather dress, sipped on champagne.

After enjoying an ice cream flight and cake pops for dessert at Andrea’s, the group transitioned into the adjacent Surrender Nightclub at 11:30 p.m. Seated in the prime DJ table, the Veuve Cliquot and Makers Mark immediately began to flow.

A boxing enthusiast since high school, set to announce the Bradley/Marquez fight the next night for HBO Boxing, Mario was surprised and delighted with a custom boxing themed cake which arrived with fanfare, complete with confetti, as it was presented by Surrender Nightclub’s lovely cocktail servers and go-go dancers. Fans were clamoring to get a glimpse of the birthday boy and his festive celebration and he graciously posed for photos with a lucky few. Mario was given a shout-out by DJ Mighty Mi which elicited a congratulatory roar from the packed house. The group partied and danced until the wee hours moving to the sounds of DJ Deniz Koyu.

The group was seated on the patio and enjoyed Executive Chef Mark LoRusso’s celebrated steaks, Dover sole, and short rib ravioli, sharing several sides including chopped salad, baby beet salad, truffle mac, and cheese and fries.

Mario entered the award-winning nightclub around 12:30 a.m. with wife Courtney by his side. Mario’s better half looked stunning in a black leather dress with studding details while the TV host was cool and casual in a gray t-shirt and fitted dark jeans.
