This past Saturday evening some of my friends joined me for a small rooftop dinner party to celebrate the one-year anniversary of this blog. Really it was more of an excuse to gather the flock and sample some amazing champagne paired with great food. France’s number one champagne company Nicolas Feuillatte threw the fete and were gracious enough to keep us doused in champagne all through the night. We paired the non-stop bubbly with our meal at Le Petit Ermitage which has been one of my favorite places to go in LA since they opened three years ago. Though I admit I liked it more in the beginning when the rooftop wasn’t members only and I could play hooky on a Tuesday afternoon and have the pool all to myself… Anyway, it was an amazing night, the champagne is phenomenal and I love my friends for coming out to support, eat and drink with me. Not everyone I love was there but the ones that made it are below…

Me with film director Abe Sylvia and actor Edi Gathegi who has been in all of the Twilight Films and is now starring in the upcoming X-Men film. He was also in my favorite short at the AFI’s film series last week. In the background is one of my favorite people in the entire world, Ms. Karen Levy.

It was a cozy affair with a lot of familiar faces and friends
