But unlike most industry-dominated nights, the events had a touch of unexpected quirkiness to them. From naked Danny DeVito-birthing upholstered furniture at the Beverly Hills Hotel to uncanny Sarah Palin impersonators and Lil Jon on the red carpet for the 2011 L.A. Film Festival, it all happened at Last Night's Parties.
