Fashion’s Night Out:  Oh What a Night!

Fashion’s Night Out: Oh What a Night!

All the tech stars were aligned for the rock star themed Fashion’s Night Out, which was graciously produced by Hillary Gadsby of A Gadsby Affair, and hosted by Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills. In case you didn’t hear the pre-event buzz, Fashion’s Night Out is a global initiative created by Anna Wintour of Vogue to celebrate the world of fashion.  And, let’s face it, it’s a good excu...
LA Times Food and Wine Festival

LA Times Food and Wine Festival

This weekend was the LA Times Food and Wine Festival at Paramount Studios.  Oh wait, it was so crowded you were probably there.  Aside from the random bee sting that did not leave me too happy, the festival was not my favorite.  We had applied for press credentials months earlier and were not told that we were denied until the Wednesday before the event.  Which left us with no option but to pu...
Ozumo Sushi, Robata and Sake Lounge

Ozumo Sushi, Robata and Sake Lounge

This weekend I was craving sushi.  Well let’s face it when am I NOT craving sushi.  So I thought I would check out Ozumo at the new Santa Monica Place Mall with @dimplethakkar.  Designed by the same designer as Sonoma Wine garden just across the way, it has the same simple clean and elegant feel.  The space is deceptively large.  When you walk into the sake lounge you have no idea that...

Big Brother is Watching You on Facebook

Big Brother is Watching You on Facebook

In his classic novel, 1984, George Orwell described a society in which the government had almost total control  over the people.  The ruler of the party was called “Big Brother” and they utilized the “thought police” to invade the privacy of all citizens. In a social climate where getting a job is a major coup, keeping it could be just as challenging if you aren’t monitoring access to...
Anisette Bistro:  My New Local Favorite

Anisette Bistro: My New Local Favorite

Last night my culinary adventures took me to a little French Bistro in my neighborhood called Anisette Brasserie.   I must admit that I had an immediate aversion to the name for no other reason than it conjures up thoughts of star anise and black licorice both of which I have an aversion to. The ambiance was lovely with its dark wood paneling, high vaulted ceilings and floor to ceiling mirrored...
Primitivo Wine Bistro – Too Primitive for My Palate

Primitivo Wine Bistro – Too Primitive for My Palate

Last night my culinary adventures took me to the Primitivo Wine Bistro in Venice.  As a self proclaimed tapas bar and wine haven, I had high expectations of the meal.  The evening started out a little rough, when the hostess could not find our reservation.  We were told to wait at the bar where it was impossible in the 10 minutes we were standing there to flag the bartender for a drink.  We fi...

OC foodie fest:  It Took me This Long to Get Over my Food Hangover

OC foodie fest: It Took me This Long to Get Over my Food Hangover

Saturday August 28th marked the day of the 1st annual OC Foodie Fest. The festival is the first of its kind in Orange County, bringing together all of the food trucks in the LA and OC areas. And it could only take their social media director @bigheadasian to get me to go to Orange County for glorified roach coaches. We showed up expecting crazy crowds, but the festival grounds were well staffed...
Networking the Right Way: Personality is Paramount

Networking the Right Way: Personality is Paramount

We have all been to countless networking events and have stacks of business cards from hundreds of people.  But which are the ones you remember?  The cards you remember and the people you remember undoubtedly have one thing in common.  They all had personality coupled with offering you a service or a product that you needed.  Let’s face it, there are thousands of people out there that do exa...
