The matriarch held court at the head of the table in TAO’s private dining room and was surrounded by family including daughter Alexandrea, who is Amarah’s mother, and Whoopi’s brother Clyde. After dining on signature dishes including Crispy Rice and Lobster Wontons the group serenaded the birthday girls, singing a round of “Happy Birthday” that started traditional and ended with 50 Cent’s “In Da Club (It’s Your Birthday)”.

They then journeyed to the sky box in the club, taking in the sounds of DJ Sander Van Doorn before moving to a VIP table in the Opium Room for some hip hop with DJ Lisa Pittman. They were surprised with a cake and birthday shout outs as Amarah reveled in the spotlight with her legendary and super cool grandma. Grandmother, daughter and granddaughter then took to the dance floor where they danced until after 3 am. On their way out the ladies took TAO up on the offer of complimentary flip flops emblazoned with the Las Vegas institution’s slogan, “Always a Happy Ending.” Indeed it was as some of the ladies swapped their heels to make the trek back to their rooms.
