Enjoying a snowy pre-holiday getaway to Aspen, Kate Bosworth and fiancé Michael Polish popped into the Audi allroad Aspen holiday party at eatery Casa Tua.
Bosworth, dressed stylishly (and warmly) in a black-and-white Proenza Schouler sweater dress, stuck close to her man as they walked through the hotel lobby on their way to the bash.
There, James Van Der Beek and his wife, Kimberly, sat chatting with friends, dishing on their first-ever snow day with their children, 2-year-old Olivia and 7-month-old Joshua.
Glee star Matthew Morrison and a friend joined the large group, too, after a long day on the slopes. Morrison mingled with giddy Aspen locals, while the Van Der Beeks sipped champagne with Bosworth and Polish, the group smiling and laughing at a table as they got to know each another better.
The foursome enjoyed some of the delicious dinner – Parmesan risotto, steak, roasted chicken, charcuterie and salads – while listening to the music of Michael Jackson, Sting and Rihanna spun by DJ Pesce.
The Van Der Beeks were the first to call it a night, leaving Bosworth and Polish cozied up and Morrison dancing with pals. – Jennifer Garcia

The horse didn't seem to mind, but for the actor, climbing aboard and posing naked was a bit awkward.
"I’m not going to lie. I’ve never ridden bareback on a horse, let alone without pants, so that was new," James Van Der Beek – referring to Tuesday's special Sexiest Man Alive episode of his ABC sitcom Don't Trust the B–– in Apt. 23 – told PEOPLE at Tuesday's GQ magazine's 2012 Men of the Year Party, held at Hollywood's Chateau Marmont.
The episode, in which Van Der Beek ends up as PEOPLE's sexy cover guy after a prank is pulled on the magazine staff by the character Chloe (Krysten Ritter), featured a photo layout of the actor wearing only a shirt as he rides a horse.

Taking a break from daddy and mommy duty, James and Kimberly Van Der Beek headed out to West Hollywood on Tuesday night to check out a special V.I.P. night at L.A.'s newest nightclub, Bootsy Bellows.
The lovey-dovey duo popped into the venue with a few male pals, and the group was immediately escorted to a private area in the back that was accessible to people with wristbands only.
"They had a table to themselves complete with alcoholic beverages and mixers," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "The group seemed really close-knit and comfortable with each other. At the beginning of the night, James and Kimberly were sitting next to each other, but as it went on, James scooted over to talk to his guy friends and Kimberly seemed to blend in perfectly with the rest of the group."
Of the happily married pair, the source says they "didn't really show any PDA," but they just "seemed really cozy and happy to be together."
At one point, a woman walked around carrying a bag of candy and light-up plastic rings, and Kimberly went for a sweet treat.
"She took a long gummy worm and started eating it," says the observer. "She made it look very yummy."
The new spot, co-owned by David Arquette – who was also on hand that night, dressed dapper in a suit – opens to the public on June 29.

The premise (small-town girl starts a new life in New York City, hijinks ensue) has been done before – but it's never been this twisted.
Don't Trust the B–––– in Apt. 23, premiering Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. on ABC, features June (Dreama Walker), who moves to the Big Apple only to lose her job, her apartment and her fiancé. The naïve new girl finds a room with Chloe (yes, she's the titular B), played by Krysten Ritter, and a tenuous friendship with her best pal, James Van Der Beek, playing a smarmy, crass version of himself – to hilarious results.
Here are three reasons to watch:
