We don’t care about the young folks: the Park Hyatt is overrun with stargazing 20-somethings

Did Gossip Girl put out an APB directing all 19-year-old girls from the GTA to the Park Hyatt roof? The hotel has been so inundated with stargazers that metal fences are required to block the driveway at night and elevators are crammed with intoxicated 20-somethings vying for a lewd stare from any Hollywood hunk. We managed to squeeze through the human wall (thanks to National Post’s Shinan Govani) and bypass the party crashers to get a glimpse of the hoopla at the Hyatt’s Nikki Beach. Drew Barrymore was sitting pretty on the patio, but a somewhat stunned Elijah Wood was seemingly scared off by the masses of miniskirts and lipstick-stained teeth.

Across the street, the Avenue at the Four Seasons was equally packed, but the ever-so-cool George Clooney was still comfortably chit-chatting in the lobby. Perhaps caught off guard by the menacing crowd of young folk faltering on furniture while busting it to Black Eyed Peas, a befuddled Richard Kind—who stars in the Coen BrothersA Serious Mantook one step onto the balcony and with tired eyes mumbled in our ear, “I think I’m going to go to bed now.”

Can’t say we blame him.
