The pair and a group of 10 friends celebrated Burtka's 39th birthday at Upstairs at Beauty & Essex over glasses of rosé and sauvignon blanc and a variety of dishes like grilled cheese-and-tomato soup dumplings. According to a spy, the dads of 3-year-old twins "enjoyed their night off from their fatherly duties but were constantly keeping an eye on the clock to relieve their babysitter at midnight."
