Afternoon Tea Among the Roses

Afternoon Tea Among the Roses

It had been a long day, so we are cheered when a friend suggests we meet and take a walk in the Huntington Gardens. Even better as it turns out (since our long day has not been accompanied by sustenance) that upon meeting our friend she expresses an insistent hunger and wonders, would we care […]

Masters of Taste 2017

Masters of Taste 2017

Thank goodness, Rob and Leslie Levy, owners of The Raymond restaurant, thought, let’s do something different for a fundraiser. Not the same old gala cocktail hour or buffet as a fundraiser, but something different.

“Get Happy” Happy Hour (Extended)

“Get Happy” Happy Hour (Extended)

During these days in which we find ourselves, the traditional “Happy Hour” may be more important than ever. An hour after our day job to relax with co-workers or meet up with friends not often seen. An hour to turn off the day of work—and for many, politics—and socialize, laugh, and detach from the world, yet connect […]
