Drake parties while in town for AAA show


Drake played for a sold-out crowd Tuesday at AmericanAirlines Arena. And while the singer’s pals Lil Wayne, Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson and The GAME were spotted there , our front-row informant says Drake was preoccupied by a “very attractive female” whom he brought on stage and serenaded to the tune of his hit Hold On, We’re Going Home. After the show, Drake DJ’ed at SL Miami at The James Royal Palm for a Moet- and Dom Perignon -infused post-concert bash where the serenaded siren was seen going into the party with his OVO Sound record label crew. When the night was over, they left together in the same group. Said a fellow partygoer, “the girl was ear-to-ear smiling and the two were making eye contact all night long.”

Actress Rachael Harris ( New Girl, The Hangover) was spotted Tuesday night at SAIA Sushi in Fort Lauderdale for an event debuting the restaurant’s $999 sushi boat. Harris is in South Florida filming for FOX sitcom Surviving Jack with Christopher Meloni, Harris attended with good pal and Josh Groban’s violinist Christian Hebel, in town for Groban’s gig at the BB&T Center.

Miami Dolphins players Sam Brenner and Will Yeatman were seen Saturday night at SL at The James Royal Palm. Also seen — rather, ogled — separately was Playboy Playmate Shelby Chesnes.

More Dolphins were seen celebrating their win Friday night at Prime 112. Producer Timbaland was also seen Saturday night at the steakhouse.

Meanwhile, over at Zuma, on Tuesday, Savannah Brinson James was seen at Zuma with her mother-in-law, Gloria James, and friends.
