What: Lara Bell and Roseann Rogers 20th annual summer birthday bash.

Where: Private room at Cafe Annie.

The scoop: Even after two decades of celebrating together, these BFFs continue the August birthday partying with total enthusiasm, that 20th anniversary nicely folding into the iconic eatery's 35th anniversary, which is being celebrated all summer. More than 125 guests were spoiled by the attention laid on them by Mimi and Robert Del Grande, who made sure that the party beverages flowed and the signature Cafe Annie appetizers kept coming.

The birthday girls were joined by Rogers' family members, including her husband Dr. Aashish Shah and their son, Nikhil; her mother, Judy Rogers; and sister-in-law Angela Shah; and by Bell's husband Brent Milam and their son Brooks.
