Sundance sightings: Susan Sarandon, Lil Jon, Paul Giamatti

Susan Sarandon and Lil Jon at Bing Bar SPiN Happy Hour The 2011 Sundance Film Festival kicked off Thursday, but most Hollywood partiers arrived starting Friday, hitting the town for luxury lounges, discussion series and late-night haunts.

By day, search engine Bing opened its annual Main Street bar with the Decision Makers Series -- a creative panel that kicked off with Susan Sarandon, who reflected on her life and career. Immediately after, she reflected on happy hour with Lil Jon

Sarandon mugged with the actor and producer at the cocktail hour, which also featured ping-pong, hosted by Bing all weekend for celeb revelers. 

Down Main Street, at the Samsung Galaxy Tab Lift, celebs scored something other than ping-pong points -- stars including Amy Ryan, Lake Bell, Don Cheadle and Paul Giamatti stopped by the lift, where Samsung was gifting its tablet device, tricked out with Internet access (hard to come by in Park City) and a built-in camera.

All that swag-gathering can inspire some serious hunger, so Sotheby's opened the doors on Chefdance, launching several nights of offerings from celeb chefs.

Andie MacDowell, lovebirds Eliza Dushku and Rick Fox, Anton Yelchin and Maria Menounos were welcomed for a five-course meal from Brian Malarkey, who paired his dishes with specialty cocktails by Belvedere. 

Who wouldn't need a cocktail after the awesome sight of Sarandon and Lil Jon? Stay tuned to the Ministry for updated Sundance sightings.

This article has nothing whatever to do with Susan Boyle, altho it was on her news website, obviously intrusively pushed into a place it was unwanted. These articles should be on general news sites if, indeed, news at all.

Please get your own website, s. sarandon. You are not Susan Boyle. Get off her site.

@Jack Parker -- Christie D'Zurilla here from MOG. I tried to send you a note about this post, but you provided a non-working e-mail address.

Not sure how you got here, but please know that the L.A. Times cannot control which sites link to us. I'm sorry another site misled you.

Here's our Susan Boyle stuff, incidentally: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/gossip/susan-boyle/


Oooops! Sorry about that then. I got to you by clicking on "Contact us" at the bottom of the Susan Boyle Websites; but now that you've explained, I realize I made a mistake, and the "us" I was apparently contacting wasn't you. Appreciate your answer, and thanks for the SuBo news articles.

@Jack Parker -- Weird! I figured it was something like that. Annoying for you the reader, but -- it happens. Thanks for coming back.
