Dancers Loren Corpuz, Akela Celebrado and Dan Terawaki entertained the crowd downstairs.


MADA LAUNCHED AT DIAMOND HEAD GRILL: Tiffany Sugiyama, far left, and Malia Song, greeted guests with complimentary shots of "Mango Passion" as Matty "Matty Boy" Hazelgrove introduced Vinnie De La Pena's new line of men's clothing at the late-night VIP party and fashion show.

The night got hotter when Malia Song, right photo center, came upstairs to party with Jackie Gallegos, left, and Amy Hayashida. Matty Boy's event drew a capacity crowd including many people who said they usually prefer to party elsewhere.
