Loved Live & Dine 2016: Fantastic Food, New Friends and Great Music


Angeleno Magazine from Modern Luxury celebrates each summer at the Fairmont Miramar  in Santa Monica with fantastic food, devilish drinks and now live music. I loved that Live and Dine 2016 expanded over the parking area for more room to sit, stroll and enjoy. The Primebooth photos with CBS 2 KCAL 9 was a great addition and you can see some people really hamming it up in my video below. The cupcakes from Big Sugar Bakeshop were a tremendous hit-I loved the chocolate frosting. I met the owners of Gentry/Jackson and I look forward to learning more about how they are revolutionizing travel.
