Perhaps now that he and his Blink-182 bandmates have officially decided to reunite, Travis Barker has decided to make it clear that he and sorta-ex-wife Shanna Moakler are once again a couple.

Though the pair have been quiet about their recent reconciliation, there was no doubt about their couple-hood on Friday night, when Shanna and Travis partied together in public to celebrate the former Playboy model’s 34th birthday.

According to witnesses at Crustacean restaurant in Beverly Hills, the no-longer-exes arrived together at the restaurant around 8 p.m. on Friday, and joined a group of about 20 friends in the private upstairs room.

Travis and Shanna, whose actual birthday is Saturday, sat at the head of the table. Witnesses describe the mood of the party as "very subdued… Nothing really rock ‘n roll about this bunch. There was no music playing other than the house music piped in from the restaurant."


The table was adorned with a long vertical centerpiece of white roses, lilies and hyacinths, with two bouquets finishing it off at each end. White, cream and lavender balloons were attached to the chairs.

The couple borrowed Dr. Dre’s longtime bodyguard for the night, while the superstar rapper was away in Las Vegas on business. The guard ushered the couple and some friends into a limo SUV at about 12:30 p.m. and took the group to My House in Hollywood, where they stayed until closing.

The meal for the birthday bash included tapas (ahi tuna tacos, short rib skewers, shrimp mousse, lobster lollipops), An’s famous Garlic Noodles with sauteed prawns, whole-roased cracked crab with An’s garlic sauce and secret spices, Chilean sea bass with steamed scallion and ginger sauce, whole Maine lobster with An’s famous Garlic Noodles, filet mignon with ponzu glaze over mashed potatoes and cipollini onions. Dessert was a "Molten Chocolate Lava Cake" from Sweet Lady Jane’s.

Travis an Shanna married in Oct. 2004 and have two children, Landon, 5, and 3-year-old Alabama. She filed for divorce from the rock star in 2006 after his rumored romance with Paris Hilton became public. However, despite at least two reconciliations — and subsequent splits — the couple have yet to officially divorce.
