I must come clean here. On The Record has generated so much action (and fedora shopping) in this column I subconsciously felt the club had already celebrated its grand opening.
Not so. That all happened late Saturday night, and a bevy of famous folks filed in to the club to party with the Wonder Twins of Vegas nightlife, Mark and Jonnie Houston.
I could not be there as I was in a magic trance and under the weather. Nonetheless, reported in the mix: Actors Kate Beckinsale (“Underworld” and “The Widow,” debuting March on Amazon Prime video), Bella Thorne (“Paradise City” and “Famous In Love”) with her sister Dani Thorne, David Arquette, Emile Hirsch (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”), Josh Hutcherson (“Hunger Games” franchise and “Future Man:), Paul Wesley (“The Vampire Diaries” and “Tell Me a Story”), Rumer Willis (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”), Jesse Tyler Ferguson (“Modern Family”) and husband Justin Mikita, Dan Levy (co–creator and star of “Schitt’s Creek”), rapper MC Dusk, Shane West (“Gotham and Salem”), model Ireland Baldwin (daughter of Alec Baldwin daughter), rocker Ryan Cabrera,Jonathan and Drew Scott (“Property Brothers”), Black Eyed Peas’ Apl.de.ap, and Alice in Chains’ Jerry Cantrell.
A plug here, too, for “Schitt’s Creek.” Levy, his famous father, Eugene Levy; Catherine O’Hara; Annie Murphy; Chris Elliott; and Emily Hampshire head up the fantastic cast. The series that centers on the wealthy Rose family, which loses its fortune and winds up at a motel in a town that the elder Rose (Levy) bought as a joke because of its name. There has to be a way to work Las Vegas, maybe even OTR, into a future plot line.
Dragons at the Center
Imagine Dragons paid an unbilled visit to Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health on Thursday afternoon. Just a much-anticipated visit, with nonalcoholic beverages (including specialty FizzyWater, I understand) served during the tour. The band is providing an auction package to the upcoming Keep Memory Alive Power of Love Gala on March 16 at MGM Grand Garden. Lionel Richie is booked as the headliner, with Muhammad Ali’s widow, Lonnie Ali, receiving the Keep Memory Alive Caregiver Hero Award.
