Photos of George Clooney Leaving Dan Tana's in LA

George's Spirits Stay High While Critics Love Up in the Air

George Clooney spent his Saturday night with friends at Dan Tana's restaurant in LA. He joked with the valet on the way out, as he buttoned up his long coat and headed off on his way. George was there without girlfriend Elisabetta, after she was by his side on Thursday night for the UNICEF charity ball with Brad and Angelina. He had reason to be in such a great mood after another great weekend for his film Up in the Air — the movie that has already earned accolades from the National Board of Review was just ranked among the year's 10 best by the American Film Institute and runnerup to the LA Film Critics' Best Picture award.
