Lamborghini Huracán Sunset Plaza Launch Party

huracan-lamborghini-sneakpeak-launchparty Last night O’Gara Coach and The Agency invited their rolodexes up to a home (listed with The Agency for $33M) on Collingwood just above Sunset Plaza. Patrón was the only drink of choice but multiple Lamborghinis were on display in the home’s front driveway and subterranean garage including several of the new Huracán and a countach recently re-popularized by the Wolf of Wall Street (Leo drove one to the Country Club on the 1981 Quaaludes, remember?). The house is listed with Brendan Fitzpatrick (wo is currently on E!’s Rich Kids of Beverly Hills), Blair Chang and Mauricio Umansky — who were all present at the party. En route up the hill we stopped by Wildfox’s first bash in their new Sunset Plaza store and later Flaunt’s big rager at the Thompson hotel on Wilshire with Saks which drew a good crowd (more deets coming).

The recently opened SLS Las Vegas laid off less than 2 percent of its workforce after evaluating its staffing needs, a spokesman for the property said Monday. The hotel-casino, a $415 million renovation of the former Sahara, opened August 23 with some 3,400 workers for the 1,600-room hotel-casino. The property includes nine restaurants and three nightclub/entertainment venues. SLS is majority owned by Stockbridge Real Estate of San Francisco and operated by SBE Entertainment of Los Angeles.
