The Thai Film industry staged their annual bash on Halloween this year - rather than during the American Film Market as usual. Why? To celebrate the increased popularity of Thai horror films, that's why. Without the usual AFM crashers, the event was much more manageable. Once again, one of the many Thai princesses held court and lavish costumed dancers entertained the crowd. All followed by a scrumptious buffet of Thai food. Also different this year, guests were invited to dress in costume. I went punk but punk is so hot on the runway this year, no one noticed I was in costume. *sigh
Join me at the 5th annual SINGLE MALT AND SCOTCH WHISKEY EXTRAVAGANZA coming up this Friday, November 15 at Loews Hotel in Santa Monica. Extravaganza is an understatement. Taste 60-year old scotch! Have a fine cigar! Enjoy the swell buffet dinner. Chat up Hollywood agents! This is a great party and highly recommended. For tickets, go to http://SMWSA.com.
Loving a couple of new sauces I discovered recently: TAGARISHI is a hot, spicy condiment that combines the best of different Asian flavors. The dark purple condiment comes in a jar and needs to be scooped out rather than poured. You'll taste plum, chili pepper, soy, vinegar flavors in this unique sauce. I loved it so much that I ate an entire jar in about a week! I haven't yet begun to explore the uses for Tagarishi. The small batches are made by a husband and wife team and the care is in each jar. Order at http://Tagrishi.com.
We Californians can cook outside year-round so check out SNAP DADDY Bar-B-Cue Sauces - a brand that evolved like all good sauces do - in a home kitchen. Someone listened when a guest said, "You should bottle that stuff!" There is a sweet one and a hot one and they're both spot on. Go to http://snapdaddy.com to order. PS: Celebrities were lapping up the stuff at a 2013 Emmys Awards suite in Hollywood!
