Guests which included top NASCAR drivers and celeb fans were greeting by a four foot ice sculpture which encased Jimmie’s car number, 48.  Skateboard legend Tony Hawk (with his wife Lhotse), Hero’s Masi Oka and My Name Is Earl’s Nadine Velazquez enjoyed LAVO’s signature sliders and four cheese pizzas in the restaurant before heading up to LAVO Nightclub where Samantha Ronson was spinning.

American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi arrived with her new hubby Mike McCuddy and danced up a storm. She got up on the banquette and danced to some Madonna. Kara, who chose to spend her birthday weekend at LAVO mentioned that she is “excited to have Ellen join AI” and had had lunch with her earlier in the day. She also commented on Adam’s controversial performance saying that “she expected something like that from him.” She and her hubby were very affectionate and held hands throughout the night.

Also present was Aubrey O’Day, fresh of her performance at PEEPSHOW, who spoke about Tiger Woods’ troubles. She said that, “it was a private matter and she hoped that they would stay together,” and that she  “always prefers that couples try and work it out.” After entering, Aubrey tried to lick the ice sculpture.

Tony Hawk and Kara DioGuardi each dined at separate tables at TAO earlier in the evening and Hawk and his family were spotted lunching at Dos Caminos Friday afternoon.
