It was a busy night at the STK L.A. Anniversary party in West Hollywood on Wednesday, but Ryan Phillippe managed to slip inside relatively unnoticed with gal pal Paulina Slagter.
"Ryan drove in through the garage to avoid paparazzi, and he was brought into the restaurant through the kitchen," a source tells PEOPLE. "He and Paulina were very cute and held hands at their private table, tucked away from the rest of the crowd."
Slagter, who is reportedly still in college, and Phillippe, took in the sounds of Bibi McGill, the touring lead guitarist for Beyoncé, who did a few special performances at the ONE Group's trendy eatery throughout the night, to honor its four years in existence.
David Spade, Taryn Manning and a Kendra Wilkinson-less Hank Baskett were also in tow for the festive evening.
"Hank left in his Cadillac with a guy pal," an onlooker says. "When asked where Kendra was by a random partygoer, he said she was with her mom in San Diego. He couldn't have been nicer to fans who approached him."

What do Robert Downey Jr., Katy Perry and a few hundred gallons of green slime have in common?
The stars – along with Tina Fey, Steve Carell, Chris Rock, Jackie Chan, Jonah Hill, Queen Latifah, David Spade, Lea Michele, Dev Patel, Miranda Cosgrove, Shaun White and more – are set to help host Kevin James dole out Nickelodeon's 23rd Annual Kids' Choice Awards this Saturday.
In addition to Rihanna and Justin Bieber performing, eight-time Olympic medalist Apolo Anton Ohno will attempt to set a new world record for being catapulted into the show's trademark green slime via the Kids' Choice Awards Slime Slingshot.
The awards will be telecast live from UCLA's Pauley Pavilion on March 27 at 8 p.m. (ET/PT). Until then, kids can cast their votes online in 19 categories including favorite couple, movie actor, singer, athlete and reality show.

When he agreed to do a DirecTV commercial featuring a scene from Tommy Boy with the late Chris Farley, actor David Spade never dreamed anybody would be offended.
"Slight shock," Spade told PEOPLE on Wednesday night of the fallout from the ad, which some commentators saw as tasteless. "These commercials are cool. They're well done. They're clever. And that they would include Tommy Boy in that company, I thought was very flattering."
The 30-second spot, airing during the World Series, appears to have been taken directly from the 1995 movie, except that while Farley does his famous "Fat Guy in a Little Coat" routine, Spade, with technological wizardry, promotes DirecTV.

David Spade can now check this off his Christmas list: 300 rifles.
The funnyman. 44, stopped by a police station in his former hometown of Phoenix on Monday morning to present a check for $100,000 toward the purchase of rifles for patrol officers, the police department says in a statement.
The donation helps fund a program being coordinated by Phoenix Police Chief and Public Safety Manager Jack Harris and Phoenix Law Enforcement Association President Officer Mark Spencer.
"Asking there be no fanfare or media attention, Mr. Spade called last week and said he wanted to donate $100,000 to the Phoenix Police Department towards the purchase of rifles to help keep our patrol officers and community safe," the statement says.
"This mutual agreement can now move ahead with momentum thanks to the generosity of Mr. Spade."

A year ago, David Spade owned up that he and Heather Locklear had been an item – only then they became friends, and now she's a friend in need.
"I texted her to check on her," Spade, 44, said Saturday night in Santa Monica at the annual benefit dinner and concert for the Lili Claire Foundation (which helps children living with neurogenetic conditions), about Locklear, who was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Fatherhood is doing nothing to slow down David Spade.
Accompanied by two friends, a male and female, on Friday night, the funnyman, 45, arrived at The Kress early – around 10:30 – and held court in one of the private cabanas on the rooftop lounge, enjoying bottle service and skewers.
Later joined by other pals, as women continued to vie for his attention, Spade proved a crowd favorite. A group of females danced on a light post pole in front of his cabana as if it were a stripper pole.
The girls at the cabana next to them were big fans, as well. Toward the end of the evening Spade went and hung out in their cabana and even took photos with his new female admirers.
And though the new pop – Spade is the father of a baby girl born last month in Missouri to Playboy Playmate Jillian Grace – was in flirt mode, the guy left all by his lonesome a little after 12:30 in the morning.

For David Spade, art is imitating life: The funny guy admitted Wednesday night that, yes, he dated Heather Locklear – and their sitcom relationship will be somewhat similar.
"You gonna go there already?" he mock-squirmed as David Letterman locked and loaded his first Locklear question on CBS's Late Show. "Did you actually ever date her?" Letterman probed. "And you know what I mean by date..."
