Academy Award-winning actor, director and producer George Clooney launched Casamigos Tequila partnered with nightlife entrepreneur Rande Gerber and business partner Mike Meldman in Andrea’s in Steve Wynn’s Encore on Wednesday night. Steve and wife Andrea, the namesake of the Asian vibe-dining hotspot, were on hand for the first shots George poured behind the bar for astonished diners.

They shared chef Joseph Elevado’s cuisine before heading into neighboring Surrender for DJ Steve Aoki’s set. Earlier in the day, George spent the day touring the Downtown Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health with Larry Ruvo, head of Southern Wine and Spirits, who will distribute the liquid lovely from Jalisco.

Celebrities turned out for the 14th Annual Canon USA and National Center for Missing and Exploited Children fundraiser at the Bellagio on Wednesday night, and John Walsh of “America’s Most Wanted,” “Seinfeld” star John O’Hurley and former “Entertainment Tonight” anchor Mark Steines served as hosts.

Our thanks to contributing photographer Scott Harrison for his photo gallery of the red carpet arrivals, which included O’Hurley, Jasmine Trias, Robert Hays, Bill Engvall, Gallagher, Pia Zadora, Chippendales dancers Jon Howes and Chaun Thomas and more. The VIPs added more funds with a celebrity golf tournament today. Scott also photographed actor Danny DeVito on the second day of 2013 CES.

Actor and singer Nick Cannon took on the 32-ounce tomahawk rib eye at Lavo in the Palazzo, and between bites went over to say hello to fellow diner MC Hammer.

Actor and rapper Ice-T made certain that he once again watched his wife Coco Austin dance and peel in “Peepshow” at Planet Hollywood before returning to New York to resume filming “Law & Order: SVU.”

And Casio Computer chief Kazuo Kashio chilled out from all the heated sales meetings at CES at Minus5 Ice Bar in Mandalay Bay -- and must now be figuring out how to put a cold app onto his computers!
