There are still parties and dinners going on on Sunday night at Sundance. I wasn't able to make more than one, but here's a shakedown of what went on:
9:05 p.m.: After a long day of interviews, just hit the first party of the night. Michael Chiklis, who is in "HIGH School" just walked in. He's heading to his cast party downstairs at the Film Lounge.
9:10 p.m.: Mark Ruffalo, who is the director/writer of Sympathy for Delicious just stepped on the red carpet before heading into the Bing Supper Club dinner for the movie. Just a few seconds later, Orlando Bloom makes his way in, sporting a very colorful scarf.
9:15 p.m.: Juliette Lewis just came back for photos. She has a great hat on, one that covers her ears. She said she is tired of being cold so will leave the hat, gloves and scarf on.
9:35 p.m.: Everyone just sat down for dinner, but there are a few stragglers at the bar. Not a bad way to start the night
9:40 p.m.: Just got a glimpse at the menu, which features dishes by Master Sushi Chef Katsuya Ueichi and Exec Chef Steven Fretz of XIV by Michael Mina.
9:56 p.m.: As I sit down for dinner, I just realized I've not eaten a real meal since lunch yesterday. This is exciting.
10:15 p.m.: Time for a toast for the movie and a rousing applause for the chefs for tonight.
10:20 p.m.: Klaus Badelt, composer, is sitting at our table. He did Pirates of the Caribbean among other movies. He's a very interesting man.
10:40 p.m.: Rock of Ages' Constantine Maroulis just walked into the dining room. He played the Village at the Yard party for the cast last night.
11:00 p.m.: Mark Ruffalo stands up to give a toast to those who helped with his movie, including his producer. As he speaks, the wait staff is passing out dessert.
11:45 p.m.: As I head out of the restaurant, I notice the long line to get into The Film Lounge to see a performance by Robin Thicke. Not gonna make this one, but sure it's gonna be a good one.
