When any of the Jersey Shore cast and crew land in Sin City you know it’s going to be a good night out. And this past Saturday was one of those nights when Jersey Shore favorite Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi celebrated her 24th birthday at LAX inside the Luxor.
Hundreds of fans lined up at the Las Vegas nightclub to see the famous guidette and celebrate her birthday with her. Dozens of Snooki doppelgangers came dressed to impress wearing Snooki’s signature poufy hairstyle and black attire.
The birthday girl showed up late to her own party after dinner at Social House in Crystals at CityCenter, but her fans didn’t seem to care as they welcomed the reality TV star on the red carpet with monstrous screams. Snooki was dressed in her birthday finest – a sheer black dress with a gold bustier and matching black-and-gold heels and also wore her fragrance, Nicole, and sported a new tattoo inked the day before at Carey Hart and Huntington tattoo parlor in the Hard Rock Hotel.
Snooks was shadowed by huge security guards and a large entourage that included her father Andy Polizzi and best friend Caitlin Ryder.
During her red carpet walk Snooki was asked why she keeps coming back to Vegas to party. “Yeah, if I were to move to any other (city), it would probably be Vegas. I love Vegas! It’s fun, everyone’s always looking to have a good time, and it’s beautiful here.”
Snooki was then whisked away into LAX to her VIP table, which was decked out with celebration goodies including a crown for her, pink tiaras for her girlfriends, light batons, balloons, personalized party glasses that said “Happy Birthday Snooki” and more. TO jump-start the celebration, Snooki immediately put on her crown and danced with the packed nightclub.
Later in the evening, confetti was launched onto the dance floor as the Las Vegas nightclub came together to sing “Happy Birthday” to the starlet. She was presented with a three-tier purple and pink leopard print cake, which was themed to mimic her newly launched perfume. Snooki had a great birthday soiree dancing, drinking and partying with her friend and family until the wee hours of the morning.
And speaking of birthdays, Ron Artest, aka Metta World Peace, celebrated his birthday as the host of the Post-fight Baller’s Ball at Lavo on Saturday. After taking some photos on the red carpet, the Lakers player was joined in the restaurant by friends and family.
The birthday group dined on specialty dishes sent over by the chef before making their way to a VIP table in the nightclub. Artest was surprised with a cake and partied the night away to the sounds of the DJ.
