Apparently, Piven took 12 or so of his best friends to one of the most exclusive restaurants in Aspn, Nobu Sushi.
According to Defamer:
"He came in with a large group of 12 or more without reservations and asked for a table. It was a very busy night, but a table, although cramped, was provided. On his way out, he made a nasty comment to the manager: 'Thanks for nothing.'"
Piven was at the HBO-sponsored festival to appear on a panel with fellow "Entourage" stars. Allegedly his tip also left something to be desired.
"He left a DVD of the first year of 'Entourage' to one of the waiters. [An employee] ran up the stairs and hurled it at him as he was leaving."
That's sad, because I really like[d] Jeremy Piven. I thought he'd be different, maybe, since he's been struggling at getting to fame for so long. Oh well. That's what I get.
At least he didn't leave a DVD copy of Judgement Night or Very Bad Things on the table. That would have sent to wrong message, I think.
