*For his birthday party, Ron Artest decided to bring together a small, intimate crowd to hang out at the Conga Room, although the club was said to be popping full of partygoers.

People were there as early as 6 p.m. to get prime seating to view the game, but despite the Lakers loss, Artest and company had the Spanish club going crazy once he got there.

Among Ron Artest’s intimate clique were comedian Luenell and her bff Constance Tillotson, singer Faith Evans and actress Antonique Smith, who portrayed Faith in the film Notorious. They all partied the night away as the paps and videographers following them everywhere.

Happy birthday Ron!
