What’s Cooking In The Hood !

Prince and his Welcome 2 Canada Tour is winding it’s way through Canada, Gun’s and Roses’s are zigzagging through the United States, while Cold Play will blow into Paris in two days. Waiting in Toronto to catch up with Prince’s last two show’s in Vancouver what is one to do except relax, eat, drink some great wine and that was the order of the day in my old hood, where I had grown-up. It was truly like going home at Richlee Ristorante resurrected by Chef Suthan Rasa. Richlee Ristorante is not a place where you are going to find long-haired, exotic, lonely well toned women to whom everyone is darling. No this is a place, that is a cozy sophisticated, comfortably warm that invite’s locals as well those visiting for the first time as if they are family. The restaurant has a rich selection of wall to wall wine to go with a variety of dishes created by Chef Suthan Rasa. Everything is prepared by the Chef in a small kitchen, reminding one that some of the best kitchens in the world are small kitchen’s such as in Malino, Rome, Shanghai, or New York. Would Frank Sinatra have dined here? This is so Frank Sinatra, and reminded me of one of my favorite Italian restaurants in Santa Monica frequented by Bono and Edge, same style, same feel, great food, great wine, and most important of all the people at Richlee have personalities which allow you the luxury to enjoy a meal in a leisurely manner. It was good to be in the hood after many years absence yet Chef Suthan made me feel like I had never left at all.

Where Angels Like to Tread !

Angels if you are aware enough are everywhere. Having left Fairmont Plaza Hotel New York City, I am out with a new angel in Central Park taking her for a buggy ride after polishing off a bottle of Ultra Premium Tequila Los Azulejos thanks to Elizabeth owner of Cottonwood wine agency. My angel is provocatively tantalizing, but it’s hard work to get her in the mood to let you bust into her corset because the two of us are facing a horse’s rectum. This is no ordinary angel she is a Victoria Secret Angel.

Many of the Victoria Secret Angels started working out for the taping of the 2011 show today six months ago. They got into shape, and Chanel Iman put on 15 pounds to get to 115 pounds, and what ever fuel these girls run on let me tell you they burn it all up. I have seen them eat and they love food. When I had my trainer in LA and hit Golds gym in Venice beach it did not matter how much I ate my jeans still felt they would fall off me. Great food, great workout’s, overall love for life, and a great sense of humor can be found in all the 38 angels that walk the hip slinging walk today. This is not the same buzz of Milan, Paris or London during fashion week, this buzz stands all alone as the Oscar of all buzz’s and it’s because this is New York and it alone rules the airwaves of the fashion world. The focus is on one brand a brand that has evolved since 1995,one that is not scared to embrace technology allowing the buzz to fill the airwaves and excite and delight the fans. The angels are tech savvy and they have been building up to this day for a month, and this is just the taping of the show which will air on CBS on November 29th. It is just thrilling to be floating around this event and letting the addictive buzz filter into your tequila laden blood stream, taking you even higher. It’s not hard to get higher watching Tom Pecheux do his cat-eyes on the angels while sitting watching the gaudy galaxy of women parade past you with Lancomed gaze, and cherry lips if one blows you a kiss it’s as if you where on morphine floating above New York City with angels all around on a magical cloud to never never land, you just sit and observe like watching a movie or falling in love. Please give me more tequila, as the pink silk robes fall off and it’s time, it’s show time, you will be blown away on November 29th when you watch this show.
