Thursday night TAO hosted the Fourth Annual TAO A GO GO contest at Worship Thursday with special guest MC Jamie Kennedy. The actor/comedian arrived at the TAO red carpet with girlfriend Jennifer Love Hewitt and her mother Patricia after dining at LAVO. Jamie immediately began hyping the crowd for the competition, but Jennifer Love wasn’t content to just sit on the sidelines and even danced a bit for the cheering crowd. Girl after girl took to the stage in pairs for the preliminary rounds in the club’s Opium room before four finalists were chosen. Jennifer and her mom, who was once a dancer, helped to choose one of the finalists. The girls headed to the catwalk in the main nightclub room where they had a dance-off, with the crowd choosing the winner by cheers. $10,000 was awarded to Grace Atencio, a local cocktail server who said she was going to pay her mortgage and her bills and that, “dancing is human nature.”
Also in the club was Nick Carter celebrating his 30th birthday. The Backstreet Boy and his girlfriend Lauren Kitt were joined by friends for dinner at TAO Asian Bistro before heading up to a VIP table in the nightclub. The packed club joined in helping him celebrate as a cake was presented and Nick even made it rain – spreading cash all over the club.
