Jay-Z had plenty of friends to help him get the NYE festivities started early at the grand opening of his new club 40/40 in Las Vegas last night. Beyonce and Solange both went for sparkles with surprisingly tame but still fun and flirty dresses. Jay managed to pull in crowds from all the worlds of entertainment, with Mary J. Blige and Robin Thicke supporting their fellow music mogul while Lebron James and A-rod represented the athletes. Looks like Jay had a great night shaking hands and giving high fives  in his tuxedo, and we bet he and B are all ready to do it up even bigger tonight.
