In what has become a tradition for the cast of “Dancing with the Stars,” Monday night marked not only the start of a new broadcast season, but the start of the weekly post-performance soirees.
Each season they anoint a current hotspot where they watch the show, eat, and eke out an additional beat to the night’s storyline with the paparazzi that join them on the unofficial “outside” guest list.
This season, it appears to be Mixology101, a sleek new tree house perched atop a double set of stairs between the Grove and the Farmer’s Market. It opened last week. (Above, Jaleel White, Karina Smirnoff, Maria Menounos, and Derek Hough after the show.)
