Best Party Boy 

Casey Adams

Remember Lindsay Lohan's ex-boyfriend Harry Morton? He's the son of the guy behind the Hard Rock Café and the grandson of the guy who founded those ritzy steakhouses that bear his family name. Harry's no slouch himself. He's the CEO of his own chain of restaurants called Pink Taco, which we're pretty sure isn't a shout-out to Li Lo's oft-displayed lady parts. KC has a sort-of Harry Morton in Casey Adams, owner of the so-hip-it-hurts Japanese fusion joint Nara, which opened last fall. His dad is local car czar Ray Adams. For the last three years, Ray's tall and charming son has held court at danceterias such as Jilly's, Balanca's and the Empire Room, shamelessly blasting new-wave hits for the sweaty masses. These days, the DJ culture takes a backseat to Adams' own trendy digs. His only regular gig now is at Nara on Saturday nights, where you'll find the artfully coiffed man schmoozing with his clientele between playing tracks by the Pet Shop Boys and Missing Persons.
