MEN IN RED: Red was the color of the month for four guys who identified themselves as Corey, left, Nick, Rich and Paul as they checked out the opening of "Sin City," the new theme of Russell Tanoue's Piranha Room party, at the Ocean Club on Saturday. "Sin City" salutes "the hottest night clubs" in Las Vegas, and the festivities featured a high-energy set by DJ Frankie and DJ Joey D from Studio 54. "Sin City" resumes on October 25 when DJ Eddie will fly in from Vegas to represent Light.

GREAT PARTY, RUSSELL: Russell Tanoue relaxed for a moment with Michelle Kennedy in the VIP area. Also joining Tanoue in the VIP area were Miss Hawaii Kanoe Gibson, Angie Hoan, Yushing Ting, Laka, Jennifer Abreau, Jason Ulep of the Hypersquad Dance Company,and Kimo James. Peter Maharaj stopped in after the Yes concert.

HEY, COALHOUSE!: Jerold E Solomon, who stars as Coalhouse Walker Jr. in Diamond Head Theatre's blockbuster production of "Ragtime," checked out the late night "Sin City" action escorted by cast members Ghislaine Sopher-Phillips, left, Kirsten Dixon, and Allison L.B. Maldonado, who wore a '70s style afro wig for the occasion. Jane Loo looked marvelous in black, Goldenchild wore resort wear white, and Malia Song was a big hit serving test tube shots of Hpnotiq at the door.
