Read on for the best in LA food, wine and CASINO FUN!!
Sin City corrupts–Ok Ok–Maybe not corrupts but comes to Los Angeles courtesy of CozmoCard partnering with LA.com and OpenTable.com to host Vegas in LA food and wine event. Luckily I was able to score some time with Dan Silberman (and his cool dog) to talk about this haute, hot event that will surely have celeb-sightings for those who love to see them and interesting people–and games– to play.
This inaugural event will be held on Saturday evening, August 26, 2006, at The Barker Hanger in Santa Monica. The casino themed party will feature an enormous casino and lounge, dj, a silent auction, wine tasting with over 50 domestic and international wines and delicious cuisines provided by over 30 of LA’s most popular restaurants.
