Randi Zuckerberg, entrepreneur and sister of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, celebrated her 30th birthday Monday night attending Rick Faugno’s song-and-dance-man show in the Lounge at the Palms.
Randi, in a black glittery dress, joined Rick onstage and sang the classic “Summertime” from “Porgy and Bess”. After the show, Randi and her friends hit the Fancy Sauce party at nearby Moon, where she was presented with a birthday cake.
Earlier in the evening, Mark hosted a birthday dinner for 20, including their parents, at Mon Ami Gabi in the Paris, where Randi crooned “Son of a Preacher Man” with the Dueling Pianos players in nearby Napoleon’s Lounge. Las Vegas-based online travel company Galavantier.com arranged Randi’s 30th birthday extravaganza.
Singer, dancer, musician and actor Rick’s two-hour tour de force included “Come Rain or Shine,” “Higher Ground,” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You” -- Rick is the original Frankie Valli in Las Vegas’ “Jersey Boys” -- plus amazing dance moves with the nonstop energy of the Energizer Bunny.
His wife, actress and singer Joyce Chittick, joined Rick onstage for a duet from “The Boyfriend” and a little tango. Rick received a well-deserved standing ovation as the clock ticked toward midnight. Forget Morrie! Tuesdays at 10 p.m. should now be with the very talented Rick Faugno at the Palms.
Venetian headliner comedienne Rita Rudner, her husband Martin Bergman and their daughter Molly visited “Titanic: the Exhibit” at the Luxor, as Molly wanted to learn more about the tragic sinking of the RMS Titanic.
The family received boarding passes of actual passengers aboard the Ship of Dreams and after the audio tour visited the memorial wall to see if the passengers on their boarding passes had survived or perished. Molly and Martin’s passengers survived, but Rita’s third-class passenger wasn’t as fortunate. The family also posed for photographs on the grand staircase.
