Party: Bing Bar
Where: Main
When: Friday – Monday
Sightings: Downstairs On Friday night — Harvey Weinstein, Aaron Paul, Mike Heller, Ben Keywanfar, Andrew Brin at the door as usual … Upstairs on Friday for the Simon Killer after party with DJ Kelly Cole — Wiz Khalifa, Simon Killer filmmaker Josh Mond, his sister Julie Mond, Dan Reagan, Scott Speedman, Edward James Olmos, Noah Gonzalez of Puma which has a gift lounge inside the T-Mobile Village at the Lift all weekend, Tracy Pendleton who also reps Puma with Paul Davidge of Exclusive Media, and Vikram Gandhi (Kumare which debuted at Sundance last year and won several awards).

Music: Wiz Khalifa, Drake, Theophilus London, Asher Roth

Notes: On Saturday night, Drake had a very public failure to appear, blaming it on his flight at the airport — as people were waiting for him to come in Park City, US Weekly was reporting his plane wasn’t even on the ground. Everyone with black wristbands waiting in Bing the basement (which we understand Bing bought out for the entire year just for this one weekend) gave up and walked down to Tao to see Kaskade. Eventually Drake made it to Bing and people had to rush back to get in. We noticed this lovely one waiting for Drake in an empty room of those who had given up waiting for the man solo rocking out with the DJ – its funnay. Watch it.


Party: Hyde Sundance
Where: “Downstairs” bar on corner of Heber and Main
When: Friday Saturday and Sunday Night
Sightings: Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, Michael Cera, Ryan Kwanten, Jason Ritter, Wilmer Valderrama, Scott Wolf, Ben Lyons, Cisco Adler, DJ Adam 12, Blake Wassenaar, Kari Feinstein, Veronique Vicari, Mike McGuiness, Matt Bilinsky, Aaron Paul, Taylor Russell, Angie Banicki, Rachel Krupa, Chris Paul, Emma Roberts, and more.
Notes: The Masterson brothers own the bar Downstairs in Park City — Danny and Chris Masterson were both in Sundance over the weekend to DJ parties. Chris’ birthday was over the weekend and he had back to back birthdays at Hyde (on Sat) and then the Bertolli / Solstice pop-up underneath the Sky Lodge (on Sun) — and DJ-ed both.
