Sunsets and S’mores: An Evening On The Beach

When you get an invitation to the Jonathan Beach Club, you don’t turn it down. Other than being the sister club to one of the oldest associations in Los Angeles, it also happens to be on prime Santa Monica sand. So when (Audi Presents) An Evening On The Beach asked me to help document their [...]

Just a slice of CUT

Though I’ve been fortunate enough to dine at the Las Vegas CUT, not to mention many other Wolfgang Puck destinations, for some reason I have yet to experience one of his biggest recent successes, CUT Beverly Hills, in the impressively revamped Beverly Wilshire hotel.

Popping Uncork’d: Adam Rapoport Talks

Adam Rapoport listens. It’s a surprising feature, to be honest, in a New York Editor-In-Chief. The man who now runs Bon Appetit was conscious that changes needed to be made in the magazine’s annual Vegas Uncork’d event, but oddly enough, not so arrogant that he thought he could make those changes by himself. So Rapoport [...]
