“Glee” heartthrob Chord Overstreet, who portrays trouty-mouthed Sam Evans on the Fox series, celebrated his 24th birthday with a guys night out at Heraea, the new American restaurant and sports lounge at Palms, on Saturday night.
“Glee” cast mate and fellow heartthrob Mark Salling and Lamorne Morris of Fox’s “New Girl,” were among the entourage, and the group of 10 guys kicked off the evening with specialty shots including the Saxa -- Grey Goose La Poire, Square One Cucumber Vodka, Pear Liqueur and a splash of Mr. Q Cucumber Soda.
The group shared rounds of oyster shooters, mini tuna tartare tacos and piquillo pepper poppers, as well as miso-glazed sea bass, filet mignon, prawns and macaroni and cheese. After dinner, Overstreet was presented with a musically-inspired birthday cake.
Heraea is the latest Las Vegas venture by The One Group and is part of Palms’ multimillion-dollar transformation. Thanks to Denise Truscello of WireImage for her photo gallery of Overstreet, whose 24th birthday is today.
