Do you want to see Ryan Cabrera and Ryan Cabrera’s hair tonight at Hyde for free? Of course you do, assuming you’re a chick under 28. You can score yourself free admission and a cocktail if you RSVP over at SPYONvegas.com. Which is just the justification you need to be the creepy old guy going to hang around all those young girls.

Carla Pellegrino played host to Britney Spears on Saturday, when the singer was in at Meatball Spot along with new boyfriend David Lucado. On Friday, she was at the big One Night for One Drop shindig at O, with a pre-show party at Hyde. Over the last week, the rumors of her finally getting a residency deal done have heated up, so maybe she’s finally set to have her Elvis moment. Well, her other Elvis moment after the erratic behavior, weight gain and questionable entourage. Weirdly enough, Elvis started playing the International 15 years after he broke through, while January 2014 will mark the 15th anniversary of …Baby One More Time. Also, Britney had a secretary named Lincoln and Elvis had a secretary named Kennedy.
Yo dawg, we heard you like tequila, so we put a … wait, that’s a terrible idea.
The never-not-delightfully-ridiculous Xzibit was at Hyde Saturday night for a private-party launch of his new Bonita Platinum Tequila. And of course, he brought in Snoop and Dr. Dre. Probably by promising them brand new Lincolns with a fully-functioning grow room built right into the back.
Eventually, in full tux and everything, X would jump onto the mic and rap a little for the crowd. And he didn’t even bring Mad Mike to wire the tequila bottles with LED lights? It’s like we don’t even know you anymore, Xzibit.
Does Skrillex know that girl took his glasses?
British songstress and former British X Factor winner Leona Lewis brought a group of girls with her to Hyde on Saturday night. Because with American Idol auditions in town and various America’s Got Talent performers doing a seven-week run at Palazzo, you can never have enough competition reality winners collected in any one place. We’re kind of surprised Ruben Studdard didn’t sense what was going on, like a cat hearing a can opener.
Over/under on number of times “brah” was thrown around at this table? 54.
Human foam-core cutout of an actual human Adrian Grenier was at Hyde Friday night, blowing off steam before the Entourage movie begins filming. Because sometimes The Secret really works, and when you put out into the universe that the only thing you need to make your life complete is an Entourage movie, you actually get an Entourage movie. Thanks, The Secret.
Grenier, who was there with True Blood’s Jamie Gray Hyder, was asked about an Obama cameo in the movie and said, “If he would just deal with those pesky Republicans, maybe he’d have some time to be on Entourage.” Zing! Oh, how it must sear Mitt Romney to the very soul to be so thoroughly zung.
We’ll give him credit for this: After he played a track from The Skins, the Brooklyn band he produces, he put on Nirvana’s “Lithium.” Which has to mark the first time any club has ever forced its patrons to awkwardly jam to a downbeat grunge anthem.
Did he borrow those glasses from LeBron?
Olympian Michael Phelps is still hanging out in town, rocking the Grizzly Adams look. On Saturday he was at Hyde to jump in the DJ booth. With those giant flipper hands of his, you’d think he’d make a good turntablist. Let’s see him get into a little cutting and scratching instead of just running the show from a laptop. He gets a paw on some vinyl and he could scratch for the length of like the entire live version of “Dazed and Confused.”
He was also spotted with a blonde in a gold dress while he was hanging out there until 3 a.m. Which is probably just another day in the life of Michael Phelps, we imagine. Still, Justin Verlander is with Kate Upton. Time to step up your game, Mike. You don’t want to be outshone by a guy who only pitches every five days, do you?
Phelps also got a look at Heraea Friday night for a friends-and-family type event. The official grand opening of the Palms spot is Feb. 17.

Apparently Wilmer Valderrama’s on-again, off-again relationship with Demi Lovato is back to “off again,” because when he rolled into Hyde Saturday with his friends for his 33rd birthday, she didn’t come along.
Or, you know, it’s because she’s only 20 and Valderrama hasn’t had the epiphany yet that once you’re in your 30s, it’s kind of a bummer to try to get your girl a fake ID. Considering she was 6 years old when it came on, she has to still think of That ‘70s Show as “one of those shows grown-ups watch.”
Regardless, Valderrama—who still apparently calls his friends his “wolfpack,” from which we can only assume he did try to get Lovato a fake ID, only it was a timely McLovin one—spent the evening with the guys, briefly making an appearance in the DJ booth. Where we assume he played the Dora the Explorer theme to try to lure his girlfriend out of hiding.
Although it’s kind of fun that neither her nor BFF Selena Gomez went in wildly opposite directions in their choice of boyfriends and still managed to go 0-for-2. It’s like they’re in some weird competition. Maybe one of them will up the ante and date either Christopher Walken or one of the E-Trade babies next.

Glee’s Becca Tobin was at Hyde Saturday night to celebrate her 27th birthday with poor-man’s-Slash DJ Ashba and people from the anti-bullying organization Bullyville. Tobin is a spokeswoman for them, because sometime in the last five years everyone kind of decided that kids being dicks to other kids was basically a war crime.
It’d be easy to make fun of Ashba for hanging around with someone from Glee all night, but then we remembered Real Slash did this. God, rock ‘n’ roll got so depressing.
We plan to use exclusively champagne-powered vehicles from here on out. (Photos by Tony Tran)
Two men linked by a shared love of terrible facial hair, Apolo Anton Ohno and Guy Fieri, were at Hyde last night for their holiday party. Ohno got champagne delivered on a tiny SBE yacht, which seems like a perfectly Guy Fieri thing to happen when Guy Fieri is in the room. Though we do suspect Fieri may have tried at some point during the evening to fill it up with Donkey Sauce.
Why so angry? Just because Ice-T never heard of you? (Photo by Tony Tran | SPYONvegas.com)
This is AP.9, Coco’s Instagram pal who got her in a lot of hot water with her husband. He was at Hyde last night where he was hanging out with another stacked blonde, which is apparently his thing. As things go, it’s not a bad one to be into. But really, how can Ice-T still be mad now? AP.9 is apparently just a guy that follows his heart. To blondes with huge racks.
