NFL rookies Melvin Gordon (Chargers), Trae Waynes (Vikings) and Jay Ajayi (Dolphins) are hitting up Las Vegas to celebrate their July 4th weekend right and kicked it off at the D Casino Hotel last night (Pictured: Trae Waynes, Nicole Parthum, Derek Stevens, Melvin Gordon, Jay Ajayi).
Dining at Andiamo Italian Steakhouse alongside the D’s owner Derek Stevens and his wife Nicole, the trio enjoyed lobster bisque before tackling the long bone 32-ounce tomahawk rib eye and lobster risotto. Whether they were just prepping for a crazy weekend or their respective training camps that will start toward the end of the month, the two first-rounders and fifth-rounder took it easy with water and lemonade.
Following dinner, Gordon, Waynes and Ajayi checked out the packed Fremont Street Experience and couldn’t believe they’d never seen it before. Walking back through the D Casino Hotel they passed by LONGBAR where Gordon’s Speed Stick commercial was playing on the big screens. Guests went crazy, attempting to snap shots of him with the commercial on-screen as the rookies dashed out to valet where host Richard Wilk was waiting with their limo.
