Reality-TV star and fashionista Khloe Kardashian kicked off her 30th birthday celebration in Las Vegas on Friday afternoon at Tao Beach in the Venetian. Joined by her boyfriend, rapper French Montana, and a large group of friends, Kardashian enjoyed the dayclub-party atmosphere from a VIP cabana.
In the evening, the former Mrs. Lamar Odom continued her celebration at Tao restaurant. Accompanied again by French Montana and friends Malika Haqq and her twin sister Khadijah Haqq McCray, Kardashian dazzled on the red carpet before heading into the Asian hotspot restaurant for dinner.
The crowd of fans who had gathered around the red carpet hours before Kardashian’s arrival sang “Happy Birthday” to her, and she graciously made her way over to them to pose for several photographs.
Once inside the restaurant, R&B crooner Miguel and his girlfriend Nazanin Mandi joined the celebration. The group enjoyed signature dishes and sushi from the kitchen. After dinner, the entire group made their way to the upstairs nightclub and to a VIP table on the dance floor.
As Kardashian and her clan arrived, nighttime revelers erupted into cheers, and cell phone camera flashes went off. Shortly afterward, Kardashian was presented with a four-tier custom cake presented by two showgirls and an Elvis impersonator as confetti rained down.
DJ Eric D-Lux dropped several of French Montana’s hits, and Kardashian, minus her siblings Kim and Kourtney and mother Kris Jenner for the evening, sang along as partygoers went wild. She then grabbed the mic to say hello to the crowd and thank them for celebrating with her.
Ciroc provided custom “Khloe 30” T-shirts, and Kardashian danced to hip-hop anthems and partied until the early hours of the morning.
Also spotted at Tao: MMA stud Georges St-Pierre. The UFC welterweight world champion enjoyed the sounds of D-Lux from a VIP table with friends.

Transport yourself to the opulent and excessive Roman Empire at Caesars Palace. But the ever-changing Caesars Palace is far from ancient. The hotel and casino is constantly raising the bar for what visitors can expect in a Vegas resort experience.

Caesars features 129,000 square feet of gaming space, including the Strip’s largest poker room and a 250-seat sports book. Other amenities include about two dozen restaurants, a four-level shopping mall, four pools, a spa, Pure and Poetry nightclubs and Pussycat Dolls.

You never know what characters you’ll run into at Caesars with regular performers like Jerry Seinfeld, Bette Midler, Elton John and maybe even the emperor himself.
