Chace Crawford

This birthday is one Chace Crawford will never forget!

The Gossip Girl hunk may have turned the big 3-0 on July 18. But it was Saturday night when the real celebration occurred.

E! News has learned the festivities kicked off at the London Hotel in West Hollywood with cocktail hour among close family and friends.

Close to 100 guests including Chace's sister and her hubby Tony Romo, Ed Westwick, JC Chasez, Matt McGorry, Kevin Zegers, Jessica Szohr and Zelda Williams then moved to the ballroom to enjoy dinner and music from a singing trio.

A source tells E! News that guests were able to watch a clip of Chace's upcoming movie Undrafted. There also was a video montage that showed the actor's life as a baby boy up until now.

Tony and Chace's manager Eric Podwall, who hosted the event, later played a video of friends delivering special messages to the birthday boy. Taylor Kitsch, Stan Sebastian, Matthew Morrison and his wife Renee, Will Poutler, Alexander Ludwig and Bryan Singer were just some of the famous faces who taped birthday messages.

The true highlight of the night, however, could have come from the roast!

Podwall served as Roast Master while Romo, Westwick and Glee's Ashley Fink delivered hilarious (and honest) stories at the birthday boy's expense.

Actor Chris McKenna roasted while dressed as a police officer while another friend kicked off the jokes dressed as a priest. Why weren't we there to see this?!

The event, sponsored by Podwall Entertainment, Freixenet Spanish Cava and River Virtual Reality, later moved to the hotel's restaurant where a DJ spun hits after hits until 3 a.m.
