Suzie and Howard Lederer host Eighth Annual World Series of Poker Barbeque at Golden Nugget
On July 2, Suzie and Howard Lederer hosted their annual World Series of Barbeque at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino in conjunction with their Second Annual Celebrity Charity Poker Tournament benefiting the Boys and Girls Club.
The outdoor party began at 6:30 p.m. at The Tank, the Golden Nugget’s $30-million pool and shark aquarium. Celebrities, pro poker players, and invited guests enjoyed a great layout of food and open bar plus entertainment including a karaoke contest. Any attendee was invited to get up and sing their heart out, but nothing could compare to actor/director/poker pro and Annie Duke's boyfriend, Joe Reitman, who blew away the competition with his very funny parody of Beyonce's Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It). You had to be there to truly enjoy his performance.

To top off the evening, there was a special pre-4th of July fireworks display that lit up the sky at 10:10 p.m. It was spectacular and lasted approximately 20 minutes.
