It was a seriously sizzling crowd that took over Mr. Peeples, the Midtown hot spot, late Saturday night for a private birthday bash for Houston Rockets third-year forward Chandler Parsons. Count Dwight Howard, Jeremy Lin and James Harden among Parsons' teammates who made the scene along with a bevy of luscious ladies.
For Parson's 25th celebration, Mr. Peeples presented the player with a graffiti portrait, done by artist James Perez, who created the various graffiti works that are exhibited throughout the restaurant. Armand de Brignac Champagne (Ace of Spades) joined the celebration by providing oodles of bubbly and making a special signature bottle for the Rocket. Denim label Buffalo David Bitton joined the party by providing the basketball-themed cake and swag bags.
Among the 150 friends and teammates helping Parsons blow out the candles on his towering birthday cake were his steady squeeze Robyn Crowley, former Houston Texan and New England Patriots cornerback Antwaun Molden, City Councilman James Rodriguez, Kevin Smoot, Abe Ndoye, Colleen Crowley, Andrea Watson and Larry O'Neal.
