Gabrielle Union was seen kicking off her birthday festivities with friends Wednesday at Hyde AmericanAirlines Arena. Prior to her hubby Dwyane Wade’s Heat game, Union hosted a private wine tasting for her Vanilla Puddin wine and mingled in the lounge. Post game, the party really got started as Union was presented with a large cake with her elementary school picture on it. As the cake was brought out, R&B star Mario, who did the national anthem before the game, got into the DJ booth and sang Happy Birthday to Mrs. Wade, who toasted to her 43rd birthday with a few bottles of Moet.
