Steve Wynn, Andrea Wynn and George Clooney celebrate the launch of Clooney's Casamigos Tequila at Andrea's in the Encore on Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013.

What to do on a Wednesday night in The Entertainment Capital of the World? If you’re Oscar winner George Clooney, why not celebrate the launch of a tequila. Your own tequila.

Casamigos Tequila founders Clooney, nightlife impresario Rande Gerber and business partner Mike Meldman celebrated the launch of Casamigos at just-opened Andrea’s at Steve Wynn’s Encore on Wednesday night.

From the looks of the photos -- this lowly journalist certainly wasn’t invited to the soiree (couldn’t have made it since a battle with bronchitis is underway; thanks anyway) -- Clooney and Gerber got behind the bar to pour their spirits as the eyes of one Andrea Wynn looked on; well, photos of her eyes anyway.

Was Gerber’s missus, one Cindy Crawford, at the shindig? How about Clooney’s gal pal, one 5-foot-11 Stacy Keibler (I always have to look up how to spell her first and last name)? She was a recent and fun guest judge on “Project Runway: All-Stars.”

They’re not in the photos, but maybe they were there. Nonetheless, Clooney posed for a photo with Mr. and Mrs. Wynn. The tequila boys follow in the footsteps of one Justin Timberlake, who had a celebration party for his tequila at nearby hotspot XS a few years back when he brought sexyback, yeah.

Thanks to contributing photographer Denise Truscello of WireImage for her photo gallery.
