E11even Miami’s four-day anniversary celebration heated up Friday night as Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg hosted what some are calling an “epic” party. McCarthy arrived with two men, one in each arm, her husband and father Dan McCarthy. After getting settled in the show club’s VIP party pit, McCarthy and Wahlberg interacted with fans. When guests asked for photos, the former New Kid on the Block politely took them and then doubled as a cocktail server.

They danced and kissed all night long, even making an appearance in the club’s DJ booth. The 24-hour nightclub’s celebration ended with a bang as Joe Jonas was spotted spinning until the wee hours with DJ Irie.
