father of actress Lindsay Lohan, defeated "Survivor" villain Jonny Fairplay by TKO in a Celebrity Boxing bout Saturday night at the Ramada Philadelphia Airport, in Essington.

Lohan plans to defend his Celebrity Boxing Federation welterweight title in August in Atlantic City. Meanwhile, Sugar Ray Leonard Jr., who aspires to be an actor not a boxer, fights nonetheless against Delaware County's Derek Macintosh at Celebrity Boxing 10 on July 24 at the Ice Works Skating Complex (3100 W. Duttons Mill) in Aston, Delaware County. The card is headlined by Jose Canseco against five-time Wing Bowl champ Bill "El Wingador" Simmons.

Father's Day festivities

_ Former 94 WYSP DJ Couzin Ed got a great Father's Day present: a daughter. Ed and wife, Lauren, a manager at Lush Cosmetics (Walnut near Broad), welcomed Tallulah Jean Andrews Sunday morning. Mom and baby, who weighed 8 pounds, 15 ounces, are doing great, and Ed, who bartends at the Irish Pol (45 S. 3rd), is loving fatherhood.

* Attorney Nino Tinari was surprised Sunday with a Father's Day gift from his daughters Nina, Kim and Mia, who arranged for his caricature to be put up on the wall of the famous faces at the Palm. Nino is a regular at the Center City restaurant, often there with Nina, formerly a special assistant to Gov. Rendell. Nino's wife, Carol, and about 20 family members and friends gathered for dinner.

Out and about

* B.J. Novak, of "The Office," stopped by the Borgata's mur.mur nightclub Saturday after performing in a sold-out show at the Music Box Theatre. Novak popped in to say hello to his friend DJ Samantha Ronson, who was spinning that night. Kristin Cavallari, who soon returns to MTV's pseudo reality show "The Hills," was the host at mur.mur Saturday. She went for dinner at Bobby Flay Steak and had spa treatments Sunday morning at the Water Club's Immersion Spa. And speaking of Bobby Flay, the Geno's Steaks staff thought that the Food Network host was there for a surprise "Throwdown," when he and fellow chefs Marc Vetri and Jeff Benjamin turned up last week after they cooked at the Great Chefs Event at Vetri's Osteria (640 N. Broad). It raised more than $320,000 for the childhood cancer charity.

* "Queer as Folk" actor Del Shores and

husband, Jason Dottley, hung out at Valanni (1229 Spruce) and Bump (13th & Locust) the other night. Shores and "Will & Grace" actor Leslie Jordan performed in a weekend show at the Plays & Players.
