Actor Channing Tatum (“Magic Mike,” “Foxcatcher,” “21 Jump Street”) attended the 10 p.m. Friday performance of “Absinthe” in the Spiegelworld tent outside Caesars Palace.
After the zany and erotic adult show, which recently celebrated its fourth anniversary, the hunky Tatum, a sharp dressed man in a newsboy cap, dress shirt, vest and slacks, met with The Gazillionaire, his assistant Joy Jenkins and the “Green Fairy” Melody Sweets for photographs and to express his enjoyment of the show.
Tatum’s “Magic Mike” sequel “Magic Mike XXL” arrives in theaters July 1, and the second sequel to “21 Jump Street,” creatively titled “23 Jump Street,” has been green-lighted.
Also at “Absinthe” on Friday night: Willie Garson (“Sex and the City”), Camryn Manheim (“Person of Interest), Kevin McHale (“Glee”) and Melissa Peterman (“Reba”). The group was in town for the Poker for Hope fundraising tournament at Planet Hollywood over the weekend.
They took a photograph with “Absinthe” cast members The Gazillionaire, Jenkins, Sweets, Ming and Alexa, Duo Fevrier, Lea Hinz and Fat Frank of The Frat Pack.

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 Palace features 3,348 rooms and suites in five towers, including the new luxury boutique Nobu Hotel and Restaurant, which opened Feb. 4, 2013, in the totally remodeled Centurian Tower. 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.
Dining options include restaurants from world-renown chefs Guy Savoy, Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, Gordon Ramsay and, on Feb. 4, 2013, Nobu Matsuhisa.
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.
