04 – From the NY Post Hampton Diary: Sleep- (and Red Bull-) deprived at Jean-Luc East on Saturday night were Lance Bass, “The Soprano’s” Jamie Lynn DiScala and her hubby, A.J. — who all tried to order the energy drink and vodkas. The trio, eating with friends — including Michael and Marcy Warren — were looking for a “pick-me-up,” Bass explained to restaurant owner Edmund “Jean-Luc” Kleefield. One small problem: The bar had run out of Red Bull, causing head bartender Dave “Daiquiri” Gordon to zip up to a nearby Hess station to buy out their supply.

09 – “Former N’SYNC star LANCE BASS shocked locals at New York’s HOOLIHANS bar earlier this week when he strolled in with a statuesque blonde and then refused to pick up the bill. The pop star and his friend turned up during happy hour at the popular bar and then made a scene when Bass’ companion decided her bill for tequilas and sparkling water was too much. One regular says, “Lance’s pal pulled out an American Express gold card and floating twenties to pay, but then balked at the high price for the bar tab. Despite her complaint, Lance didn’t flinch or dip into his own wallet — not even to offer to pay the tip.”
