Former baseballer Mike Piazza celebrated his 45th year on Earth Saturday with his wife Alicia and several other friends at The Forge.

On Friday night, boxer Yuriorkis Gamboa had dinner, party of 8, at Prime 112. On Sunday night, rapper Ja Rule had his own feast there at a table of 12 after spending some of the day at the Delano Beach Club, where design duo Dean and Dan Caten of DSQUARED were also seen sipping Dom Perignon.

Katy Perry was seen watching from behind a container on the side of the stage Sunday night as her on-again beau John Mayer played at Cruzan Amphitheater.
