The Sundance Film Festival may be winding down, but for those suffering Park City withdrawals, PEOPLE was behind the scenes at the hottest parties, screenings and dinners earlier this week.

Tuesday, 6:41 p.m., Zipper party hosted by Grey Goose Blue Door: Dianna Agron was the first star to arrive. Wearing a thick black coat, the Glee actress hung out with a gal pal on the balcony before greeting her cast and well-wishers at the bash.

Monday, 12:30 p.m., Women at Sundance Brunch: Co-hosted by the Sundance Institute & Women in Film, the event drew Ava DuVernay, Alia Shawkat, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda. “It’s my women friends who keep starch in my spine,” Fonda said. “Women’s friendships are one of the reasons women live longer than men.”

Sunday, 10:30 p.m., Moose Knuckles Canada Moose on the Loose Party: The Bachelor‘s Michelle Money beat out a roomful of partygoers who gave the mechanical beaver a spin. Lasting the longest, Money took home $10,000, which she plans to donate to http://www.chris4life.org. “It’s in honor of my dad, who passed away from colon cancer,” she told PEOPLE.

Sunday, 10:03 p.m., ChefDance: Singer-songwriter Edei, who just released her new single “I’ll Go”, performed a couple of songs for guests dining on a meal by Chef Shawn Armstrong. Kellan Lutz and Alexander Skarsgard “dined family-style” in a Marimekko-decorated private room, said a source.
