Separately in attendance at STK was San Antonio Spurs baller Tony Parker. Parker and seven other team mates – in town to play the Miami Heat Tuesday – enjoyed a magnum bottle of Moet Chandon champagne (the effects of which may or may not have been responsible for the Heat’s unprecedented comeback during the game).
