Vegas-loving Olympian Michael Phelps was spotted at a Palms Pool cabana Saturday, as were Of Mice & Men frontman Austin Carlile and Jason “Wee-Man” Acuña of MTV’s Jackass. Acuña was later seen partying at Ghostbar, where he kept the havoc at a minimum—by Jackass standards, anyway. Jason Statham (in town filming the remake of the Burt Reynolds classic Heat) found himself at the VIP table behind Hakkasan’s DJ booth Saturday, drinking and dancing to Michael Woods’ deck work. And then there was Coolio: “If you aren’t here to party at Rockhouse, you must be getting old,” said the rapper, who played a special set Saturday at the Palazzo bar. Absinthe’s Angel Porrino and Gazillionaire were spotted as well, signing the bar’s “Celebrity Wall.”
