HOUSTON – Houston just hit a whole new level of ‘cool’.

Everyone at Philippe Restaurant and Lounge in the Galleria were all stars Friday night—they partied with the one and only Shaquille O’Neal.

Who better than NBA legend to host the lounge`s celebrity kick-off party after?

There were drinks, dancing and of course, photo ops.

Kenny Smith is hosting a similar event Sunday night.

It’s all for charity too folks!

Proceeds go to Kenny Smith’s Aim High Foundation.

With parties like this, All-Star weekend is shaping up to be a slam dunk.
