Brad Pitt and Sons: Viva Las Vegas!

By: Betsy Waldman / February 19, 2009

Las Vegas provided Brad Pitt, 45, and adopted sons Maddox, 7, and Pax, 5, with some guy time yesterday while mom Angelina Jolie and the girls (Shiloh and Zahara) were out being cosmopolitan in NYC.

Pitt and sons were spotted at the Hard Rock Casino & Hotel yesterday before heading over to the MGM Mansion, where sources tell Us three Wii consoles were delivered to their room.

Wouldn’t it be more of a bonding experience if they used the same one? Rich people.

Brad sported a white jersey, khakis, porkpie hat and shades while Maddox and Pax were in their usual cool kid casual.

Meanwhile, on the opposite coast, mom Jolie and daughters Zahara and Shiloh were spotted at favorite hangout Lee’s Art Shop while Jolie was said to be searching out potential NYC properties to buy.

Angelina is said to either be scouting temporary places to stay during the filming of her upcoming spy thriller Salt, OR actually looking for a more permanent domicile for their “It’s A Small World” family in the Big Apple.

Both actors seem to be getting some family time in before the allegedly HUGE confrontation that is supposed to take place at the Night Before The Oscars charity event on Saturday night between Angelina and Brad’s ex-wife Jennifer Aniston.

All three are expected to appear at the $25,000 per ticket event as hosts, and it is reportedly the first time Aniston and Jolie will have been in a room together since 2005.

Brad is probably wishing he could stay with the boys in Vegas.
