Star sightings: Lady Gaga does Las Vegas

August 16, 2010 |  7:00 am

Lady-gaga-las-vegas Sin City met its match this weekend as Lady Gaga stopped in Las Vegas to perform at the MGM Grand.

"Gambling and inappropriate attire to ensue," the Lady tweeted of her arrival, "why am i so jealous of strip club stage production[?]"

Perform she did, in a stop on her Monster Ball tour, followed by some major partying at Tao Asian Bistro. Gaga rolled deep with security and friends, "parading through the restaurant in sky-high heels and poufs of lace, with lace veils covering her face," an onlooker said.

The party dined on sushi and sashimi with vegetable dumplings, enjoying the local Vegas flavor -- yet Gaga didn't forget her New York City roots. In the house celebrating his birthday was Tao co-founder Noah Tepperberg (the nightlife guru runs celeb-fave venues including NYC's Avenue), whom she sent a bottle of champagne to mark the occasion.

A more conventionally dressed pair also did some celebrating at Tao as well -- engaged actors Dave Annable and Odette Yustman shared an important rite of passage ...

... with a joint bachelor-bachelorette party. They were joined by Annable's "Brothers & Sisters" costar Matthew Rhys

In New York City, the Mercedes-Benz Polo challenge saw its fourth week of competition. Stars including Khloe Kardashian, Lance Bass and Howard Stern's radio co-host, Robin Quivers, turned up at the Bridgehampton Polo Club for some schmoozing in the Swagg Mobile Application Lounge.
