We’re guessing “no” is a word that RJ and Jerrod Melman didn’t hear too often growing up. We’re not saying they were spoiled by their dad (Rich Melman, founder of the Lettuce Entertain You restaurant group), but it appears they do have a tough time reining in their desires.
Take their popular restaurant, HUB 51, whose menu includes everything from nachos to sushi to burgers to steaks– it’s like the brothers took a look at a list of food suppliers and said “I want it all.” (Hey, if it’s alright with Jessica Alba, it’s alright with us.)
And now comes word of Jerrod’s birthday celebrations this weekend. That’s right, celebrations, plural. The soon-to-be 27-year-old will host three parties at his restaurant’s underground club, SUB 51 (click for table reservations). “Dance Your Pants Off” starts tonight with DJ Jem and DJ Kiss, with Dante the Don to follow on Friday and Konsept behind the decks on Saturday (the actual b-day is Sunday). Is it too much? Probably. Should you go anyway? We’re not gonna tell you “no.”
