Superstar Prince joined a party of nine, including his three bodyguards, for late-night eats at Society Cafe in Steve Wynn’s Encore. He enjoyed tomato soup and Pellegrino as the 2013 Billboard Music Awards weekend kicked off with music glitterati dining and partying at the Wynn and Encore.

Comedian and actor Kevin Hart, in town filming “Think Like a Man, Too,” partied in a bungalow at Encore Beach Club to check out the launch of Above and Beyond’s “Group Therapy” DJ residency. Also in the bungalow: cast members Adam Brody and Romany Malco.

Singer Chris Brown, who is performing at tonight’s BBMAs, and E! News anchor Terrance J stopped by. In front of the DJ booth: “NFL on Fox” sportscasters Jay Glazer, Michael Strahan and Curt Menefee. Strahan, also co-host of “Live With Kelly and Michael,” was having so much fun, he sent out his first-ever Vine video. The group enjoyed Tanqueray, Grey Goose and Don Julio Blanco.
