Although they live in LA now, former Star Island residents shoe designers Donald and Lisa Pliner were in town over the weekend for a surprise 70th birthday Lisa threw for her hubby Saturday night at the Sagamore with the help of Miami event planning company The Gold Standard. Among those there celebrating were Dennis Rodman, who posed for pictures with hot shot Miami attorneys Roy--there with wife Lea--Black and Andrew Boros. Rodman, sporting a Hawaiian print top, several scarves and a skirt, was also overheard attempting to whisper to James Davis a.k.a. Elaine Lancaster, “So man, are you going with me to North Korea?” to which Davis replied, “Are you kidding me? I don't want to get executed.” Rodman replied, “No man, it ain't like that. I'm going to help train their national basketball team." Davis replied, “You have a good time and take care of yourself for me.”

Rodman was also spotted Thursday at Hyde Beach with the Pliners and friends where he ordered a round of Jägermeister shots for the group. That same night, hip hop star Young Jeezy was there with friends after a dinner at Prime 112.
