Now that Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley has split from wife Torrey DeVitto, he has a lot more time to hang out with his bros. Atop that list is none other than the dreamy Ben McKenzie (Ryan Atwood from The O.C.), who turned 35 on September 12. We must say, we’re glad Ben left his signature tank top at home for his big night out.

The friends dined with a group at celebrity hot spot Andrea’s in Encore at Wynn Las Vegas. Apparently the two were thrilled to receive personalized chopsticks upon arrival. They used them to dine on executive chef Joe Elevado’s smörgåsbord of delectable Asian-inspired treats.

A source told Wetpaint Entertainment that the guests, including Paul, dined on “hamachi sudachi, smoked salmon, crispy tuna, special cucumber rolls, wagyu lobster, miso black cod, lobster fried rice, vegetable fried rice, chili shrimp tempura, and the flaming Mt. Fuji dessert which was presented to the birthday boy and enjoyed by the table.” Sounds delicious!

We’re glad that Paul (who actually appeared on The O.C. in Season 1) had some fun time with his friend while taking a break from shooting Season 5 of The Vampire Diaries. Party while you can, Paul — we’re sure Julie Plec has some work for you this week!

What do you think about Paul and Ben’s boys’ night out? Hit the comments and let us know if you support this bromance or not!

The Vampire Diaries premieres on Thursday, Oct. 3, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
