Even Elton John is cutting back due to the economic crisis. A few years ago he would have held his birthday party at a five star hotel or the hottest new club in town. But for his celebration this year, he rented out the Hamlet on Sunset. It’s a comfy, pleasantly old fashioned, modestly priced hamburger restaurant with a lounge. Dean Martin used to drink there. Elton attracted an eclectic crowd. Joan Collins (who owns a condo in the building next door) arrived with her husband Percy Gibson. Jackie Bisset came with an unidentified man. We always love seeing her. Sometimes RuPaul can slip by in a suit without being recognized. Here’s Chastity Bono. QVC hairdresser Nick Chavez and diet expert Nikki Haskell turned up together. It looks like Elton is getting Star Cruncher exercise equipment for his birthday.
