It’s always a beautiful day in the Las Vegas neighborhood when there is a Ryan Lochte sighting.

On Tuesday night, the Olympic champion, dressed head to toe in black (sadly, no Speedo or Halloween costume … unless he was dressed as, well, Ryan Lochte), partied at Pure in Caesars Palace, which was the site of a Halloween costume contest.

Lochte partied with friends in a VIP booth on the main stage, admired the costumes, enjoyed cocktails and hung out with his pals until 2 a.m. today.

While in town, the multiple Olympic gold medalist dined with friends at Joe Vicari’s Andiamo Italian Steakhouse in the D Las Vegas downtown on Wednesday night, enjoying a 12-ounce lobster tail and calamari.

Lochte reportedly gambled at a roulette wheel before dinner and tipped the servers generously at classic steakhouse Andiamo.
