If the couple that plays together stays together, then Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo are off to a good start. The duo – who have been making the rounds all over the Big Apple – recently spent an afternoon at New York City sports bar Third and Long, where they competed in a friendly game of foosball and checked out the France vs. Portugal World Cup game.
The casually dressed pair took refuge in a back corner of the bar and alternated drinking beer – Miller Light and Bud Light – with a few shots of Southern Comfort. “They were really laid back, just having a good time,” bartender Gene Loughlin tells us. “They were having fun.” And although Lachey politely asked Loughlin to keep people from approaching their table until the game finished, afterward the singer was gracious to fans and even took pictures with a few. “They said they’d be back again,” says the bartender.
Pink really likes to sink her teeth into husband Carey Hart. The singer recently showed her love for her spouse of six months by repeatedly biting his butt at the 944 magazine party at the Palms in Las Vegas. Each time, the motocross star whipped around and either caressed her face or planted a juicy kiss on her lips.
At one point, Pink even treated her man to a lap dance after grooving to DJ Kool’s “Let Me Clear My Throat.” And Hart played resident bartender for his wife (a mix of cranberry juice and vodka) and pals (Lisa Marie Presley and mom Priscilla stopped by). The affectionate duo finally left at 2 a.m.
