Robin Leach, longtime celebrity and entertainment journalist currently working at Vegas DeLuxe and the Las Vegas Sun (and my hard-working reporter for the past five years), celebrated a joint birthday Friday night with good friend and hair guru to the stars Michael Boychuck with dinner at Andrea’s, followed by a private party at Encore Beach Club and Surrender, all in Steve Wynn’s Encore.
Mr. Leach, in a light-blue suit, smoked a cigar and enjoyed Veuve Clicquot while happily welcoming the group of partiers, which included the gorgeous Luxor headliner “Fantasy” girls, Luxor headliner comedian Carrot Top, Mark Shunock and Troy Burgess of “Rock of Ages” at the Venetian, plus Tiffany Masters, Seth Yudof, Alfredo Andreani, his fiancee Anastasia Chronos, Stephanie Wilson, Erica Benken, Rebecca Smith and more.
My brother, Charlie Chareunsy, and I also had the honor of attending another birthday celebration for Mr. Leach. The always-friendly and dapper David Schnitzer of Las Vegas Nightlife Group made certain that everything, from the Champagne delivery to the cake presentation, went off without a hitch.
Mr. Leach celebrated the actual day of his birthday, Aug. 29, in La Jolla, Calif. Thanks to Aaron Garcia for his photo gallery of the celebration.
Mr. Leach summed up: “To everybody who came and to all those at Andrea’s and Encore Beach Club who made the joint birthday celebration of Michael Boychuck and yours truly such a success, a big thanks!”
