Rarely one to turn down a night out, Gerard Butler
recently came out to Caulfield's restaurant in Beverly Hills to celebrate the joint birthday of the eatery's owner Ron Marino, Thompson Hotel owner Jason Pomeranc and Smallville
star Tom Welling.
Stepping out solo, the ladies' man arrived shortly after Gabriel Aubry showed up. Both men were just in time for the dinner portion of the bash, which started around 8 p.m. and ended at 2 a.m.
The two men didn't sit together or interact much, but the 50-person party also included Entourage
cast mates Jerry Ferrara and Emmanuelle Chriqui, along with Harry Morton and Peter Gallagher.
"Gabriel was looking pretty sharp in a suit," a partygoer tells PEOPLE. "The female guests were chit-chatting all night, trying to find out his [relationship] 'status.' " – Dahvi Shira
