Teen Sensations Invade Buca di Beppo in Universal City


Las Vegas, Nevada (December 1, 2011) -On December 6, some of today's biggest teen stars will attend a pizza party at Buca di Beppo presented by Kinect for Xbox 360 in honor of Popstar! Magazine's January '12 issue (on sale December 6), which names the dozen break-through artists of 2012.

Prior to the private party, fans are invited to celebrate with their favorite teen stars during a special public appearance hosted by Radio Disney's Jake Whetter at Universal CityWalk's new, state-of-the-art "5 Towers" outdoor concert venue.  Celebrity arrivals begin at 6:30pm and scheduled talent includes: singers Cody Simpson, Greyson Chance and Ryan Beatty; music group Mindless Behavior; actor Booboo Stewart (The Twilight Saga); and actresses Ariana Grande (Victorious), Debby Ryan (Jessie), Cymphonique (How to Rock) and Bella Thorne (Shake It Up).

Known as the perfect place to celebrate any occasion, Buca di Beppo has become a favorite of the young Hollywood crowd. "Buca di Beppo Universal City is proud to be a part of an event honoring the next generation of talent," said Tom Avallone, President and CEO of Buca di Beppo.

Adding to an already fun-filled evening, Kinect for Xbox 360 will be featuring recently released "Kinect: Disneyland Adventures" for celebrities and their guests to enjoy. In "Kinect: Disneyland Adventures," players explore Disneyland® park - from Main Street U.S.A. to Critter Country - joining Peter Pan to battle Captain Hook and high-fiving Mickey Mouse using full body and voice, no controller required.
