Lovable Shaquille O’Neal might have retired from the Celtics, but that doesn’t mean he’s retired from partying! On the contrary: We hear that he’ll enjoy his newfound freedom at his favorite hangout, Strega Waterfront, on Thursday evening. He and his ladyfriend, Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander, will begin carousing at 6 p.m. No, the fete isn’t open to the public (sorry), but we’re hoping to maybe catch a glimpse of the duo frolicking outdoors to inaugurate Strega’s lovely new patio. Maybe Shaq will even break into song? We can dream!
