She’s called Liza Minnelli — with a “z” — but she might as well be vying for the title of Comeback Kid.
On April 19, just a month after her most recent stay in rehab for alcohol dependency, the iconic singer was all smiles as she stepped out for a Sunday night supper at West Hollywood hot spot Pump. “She looked fabulous,” an eyewitness tells 'Closer.' “She was in a good mood, and definitely sober!”

During the two-hour dinner — she ordered salmon with sparkling water — the 'Cabaret' star appeared healthy and relaxed, responding graciously to the multiple well-wishers who approached her table.
Even when a waiter attempted to hand Liza a cocktail menu — causing the 69-year-old’s dining companion to bat it away in a dramatic huff — she took the potentially awkward moment in stride. Says the eyewitness, “She just raised her eyebrows at her friend’s overreaction and laughed.”
