On Saturday afternoon, Glam.com invited me and their other LA-based bloggers out for a cocktail party at TART Restaurant located at the Farmer's Daughter Hotel. It was similar to the bloggers who brunch group that I used to belong to and enjoy in NY, where fellow bloggers share advice and tips.
Among appetizers and mimosas I met Sandra from debutanteclothing.com who is a fan of vintage wares; MK, the sweet celeb gossiper at popbytes.com; Stevie, the West Coast editor at Fashion Tribes who writes the LA Story; Alyson of This Next a shopcasting network who also lives in Venice and gave me some restaurant recommendations; hollyscoop; and entertainment lawyer Joshua at BumpShack.com who writes about "everything" and was previously listed as Cosmopolitan's most eligible bachelors but now is married and expecting his first child in Feb.
That night I drank too much at a friend's pre-xmas party and was unfortunately out of commission all day today, ruining my plans of making stew and going to the gym. *sigh*
Friday night after work though, four of us attended the special improv and sketch holiday show at the Groundling Theater--the comedy school which started the careers of Phil Hartman, Lisa Kudrow, Will Ferrel, Kathy Griffin, Paul Rubens and Jon Lovitz. The show was entertaining, Raphael kept cracking up and I was happy to see that former the enthusiastic Joey co-star, Ben Falcone, was among the improvers, as well as Jim Rash from The Naked Truth. Speaking of The Naked Truth, have you noticed that current Survivor player, Jonathan Penner, also starred on the NBC Tea Leoni show? Yet, the reality show only lists him as screenwriter, but I recognized his voice and face right away.
