It’s that time, again, to present the essential food events going on the next few weeks around the city. It’s a wonder that I don’t do these more often, because I often want to highlight events that I don’t have time to write about before and after they occur.
So here’s a reminder, then, to check back on the blog whenever you can (on a full size browser, not mobile) for my Google Calendar-ready events list I’ve been maintaining in the right-hand column, underneath my avatar –>.
Last month, I was asked by Dine LA, a non-profit subsidiary of the Los Angeles Convention and Visitors Bureau and coordinator of LA Restaurant Week, to shoot a little video on featuring a few restaurants around town. Honored by the consideration, I accepted, and had quite a fun time being driven around in a brand-new Acura TSX Wagon (with Acura being sponsor of the project).
We visited Petrossian on Robertson in West Hollywood, Street by Susan Feniger in Hancock Park and Church & State in Downtown L.A. – all of which you have no doubt seen mentioned here on the blog and in my tweets. It was such a pleasure to work with Carrie Kommers, director of the video and of Dine LA, and Evan Romoff, the DP (that is, Director of Photography) and editor – both of whom put me at ease and helped break my “professionally produced” video cherry. We had lots of laughs, bloopers and takes. I had quite a time avoiding “um’s” in the audio. And really, all the credit goes to Evan, the editor, who made me look and sound pretty decent, despite my failure to reapply some mid-day makeup. 😉
You can see the video above, or embedded into the video section of the Dine LA website, or even Evan’s vimeo page, which has the big version. Hope you enjoy!! And have a great weekend.
