Sighting: Ryan Lochte celebrates 29th birthday at the D Las Vegas – 8.18.13
11-time Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte continued his Vegas birthday celebration with dinner at Joe Vicari’s Andiamo Italian Steakhouse downtown at the D.
Lochte and a small group of friends, including Olympic trial finalist Matt Haupt and fellow Olympic gold medalists Cullen Jones and Eddie Moses, rode to dinner in style in the D’s red and black armored limo. Lochte tweeted a photo of the custom ride on his way to the new casino.
After arriving at the new downtown property, the swimmers dined on Italian dishes in an intimate setting at Andiamo. To conclude the meal, the D surprised the birthday boy with a cake shaped like an Olympic swimming pool.
Later in the night, the boys headed outside where Lochte was pleasantly surprised by a birthday tribute displayed on the Fremont Street Experience’s Viva Vision canopy – the world’s largest video screen that towers over four neon blocks of party action. The friends then headed back into the casino where they partied and gambled with the D’s signature dancing dealers.
