A Bahamian band played and DJ Jus Ske, fresh off Madonna’s Oscar bash, provided dance music. Lobster and steak were served. Dad Robert De Niro spoke briefly. Rolled cigars were handed out to guests. And fireworks lit the sky.

"It had rained earlier,” said a guest, “but that stopped in time. It was a great party with a bonfire on the beach until 4:00 a.m.”
