Despite all the extravagant birthday galas the Hollywood elite are known for having, this stripped-down celebration may be a match made in gay heaven.
Elton John stepped out in West Hollywood on Monday night, wearing a bright-blue suit no less, to enjoy an intimate dinner with partner David Furnish and celebrity pals Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka for his 66th birthday.
The group surely had much to discuss, as both couples have welcomed new babies into their lives via surrogate mothers within the past few years. John and Burnish have had two children: Zachary in 2010 and Elijah in 2013. Harris and Burtka had twins, Gideon and Harper, in 2010.
But all that potential talk of late-night bottles and babies' first words didn't stifle John's usual outlandishness. His blue-rimmed glasses -- which may have received their own hotel room at some point -- and checkered socks were complemented by the pricey gift bags his guests were seen carrying, particularly Furnish, who waltzed in with a Saint Laurent bag.
This doesn't mark the first time Harris and Burtka have caroused with John and Burnish. The "How I Met Your Mother" star and his fiance boarded John's yacht in August 2011, with all their children in tow, for a playdate on the open water.
