Time to break out party hats
Just like the Dresden Room’s Elayne Roberts, who seems to get younger every year, veteran promoter MacAfrica has never looked better. I saw the 57-year-old night clubber at the Children Uniting Nations Oscar party fundraiser in March, and she looked hotter than the most of the twentysomethings. Chalk it up to never going under the knife -- and a decade of nightlife. “I really think the tequila has pickled me,” says the grandmother of three, who celebrates her 58th birthday Sunday at the Day After nightclub with her annual hat party. “I’m out till 5 a.m. four nights a week, and I’ve never felt better.” Among her weekly jaunts are Fridays at L.A.'s Level 3 nightclub, where she caters to a young crowd; and Saturdays in Beverly Hills at Aqua, where an older, upscale crowd mixes and mingles like teens at a sock hop. Expect to see Jeff Goldblum, who is scheduled to perform, at this year’s Mac dandy hat gala.
Prince of the Strip
Nothing cooler than Prince kicking down on Sunday night. The fab funkman performed at Skybar at the Mondrian before packing up his gear, walking across the Sunset Strip and inviting 200 people for an encore at the House of Blues Foundation Room, where he jammed till 4 a.m.... Snoop Dogg got down with DJ AM at a church downtown on Saturday night. Too Short and B-Real rocked the mike with Snoop, and spotted in the crowd was Sam Cassell of the Clippers.... And speaking of AM, Pink and the famed DJ took over Social Hollywood for post-Emmys performances on Sunday.... If you don’t get paid before Labor Day, Shag is free until 10:30 on Sunday night....

Giant ups and moves
On Sept. 9, the mega-dance promotion Giant moves from the Avalon to Vanguard in Hollywood, where it’ll kick each Saturday.... Sharon and Ozzy are giving back. The Osbournes have teamed up to design a line of T-shirts to benefit the Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Program at Cedars-Sinai. You can find the rock wear at Hard Rock Cafes worldwide.... Sexy Les Deux Cafe has a smoldering Wednesday titled Voulez Vous. Oui oui.... Designer Kristofer Keith is chipping away at Goa and Cashmere, two spots on the way from Adolfo Suaya and Michael Sutton.
