On Sunday, September 19th, DJ Pauly D, American television personality and one of the stars of MTV’s hit show “Jersey Shore” hosted the second grand opening celebration of the newest Sugar Factory Las Vegas outpost (following Scott Disick on Saturday, September 18th).
Located at the Harmon Corner Retail Center on the 50-yard line of the famed Las Vegas Strip, the three-story, family-friendly destination known for its over-the-top sweets and treats features a walk-up goblet bar accessible from the pedestrian bridge on Las Vegas Blvd and Harmon Ave.
Pauly D and his girlfriend Nikki Hall arrived at 9 p.m. to a sold-out restaurant full of excited fans. The room erupted with applause and screams as Pauly walked in performing a “Pull up with Pauly” experience, where he carries a massive 24-scoop King Kong Sundae, complete with sky-high sparklers, which he then gifts to a table of excited fans.
Always the life of the party, Pauly was full of his electric energy. During his hour-long DJ set, he fist-bumped along to songs including Tiesto’s “The Business” and the viral song “Beggin” by Maneskin, and hyped up the crowd with classics like “Mr. Brightside” by The Killers and Martin Garrix’s “Animals.”
The event turned into an impromptu concert as pedestrians crowded outside of the restaurant on the Las Vegas strip to catch a glimpse of his set, and he even included them in on the fun, addressing the fans outside throughout the set. For the fans inside, he snapped selfies and even invited one young fan, who came with a homemade “Yeah Buddy!” sign with an Italian flag background, up to the DJ booth. Not a single guest remained in their seat during the performance and fans screamed, danced and applauded for Pauly throughout the entirety of his set.
Pauly and Nikki dined on Sugar Factory’s new Cali Love and West Coast Sunset goblets, made with Kendall Jenner’s 818 Tequila. Pauly enjoyed the Big Cheesy Burger and the Cajun Chicken Penne Alfredo, while Nikki dined on the Chicken Penne Alfredo.
For dessert, the couple ordered a Campfire S’mores Milkshake to share. Before heading out, Pauly sweetly helped Nikki pick out candy in Sugar Factory’s candy retail store. Both chose Sugar Factory’s famous couture pops. Nikki selected the watermelon flavored Pretty in Pink couture pop, while Pauly picked out the watermelon flavored Midnight couture pop.
