Prince Turns The House Of Blues Into The ‘House Of Funk’

The TV Guide

So … I had a very long night/morning today … and am alive and functioning to tell the tale. As I mentioned yesterday, last night David and I attended the 8pm performance of the stage play God of Carnage and then I attended a 2AM concert performance by Prince in the intimate Foundation Room at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, CA. I’ll post my review of God of Carnage shortly but the Prince show, man, what an incredible night. More »

‘God Of Carnage’ / Prince Of Funk

The TV Guide

David and I made it home from Las Vegas, NV last evening with enough time to unwind and relax a bit for the rest of the night. Altho our weekend was fun and relaxing, we didn’t want to go all out last night because we have a big night tonight. We are finally seeing the Broadway hit play God of Carnage here in LA and then later on tonight (well, early tomorrow morning to be exact) I am seeing Prince perform a very intimate concert for 100 people at the House of Blues. Oh yes, it’s going to be a very long night indeed. More »

I Love A Really Good ‘Cosmo’

The TV Guide

Yesterday was David’s and my last and sole full day here in Las Vegas and I have to tell you … we had a blast. We spent part of our afternoon getting to know The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, our temporary home away from home, checking out all of the amazing shopping, the cool bars and their 3 pools. We spent our evening dining at the ABSOLUTELY delicious Comme Ça restaurant here in the hotel. Comme Ça is one of our fave LA restaurants so we knew we were in for a treat last night … but we were NOT prepared for the absolutely TO DIE FOR sumptuous meal we enjoyed last night. More »

Vegas, Baby!

The TV Guide

Yesterday afternoon, David and I made our way to Las Vegas, NV for a couple of days primarily to see Kylie Minogue end her Aphrodite Live 2011 North American tour at the Colosseum inside Caesar’s Palace Hotel and Casino last night. We are staying at the absolutely FABULOUS Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Hotel and Casino and have been having the time of our lives. I”m not a big LV fan, but our accommodations have more than made up for my previous preconceived notions about Sin City. More »

A Rapturous Birthday Celebration

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a very fun-filled day that was supposed to be the end of the world but ended up being just a really awesome Saturday. To get things started, David and I were invited to our friends Tamar and Rob’s house for a Judgment Day BBQ and then last night we made our way to Pali House for Darion’s 30th birthday party. Today, I’m nursing a hangover so, yeah, it was a pretty sweet day. More »

Goddess Kylie Minogue Blesses The Hollywood Bowl With ‘Aphrodite Live’

The TV Guide

Last night Kylie Minogue brought her Aphrodite Live 2011 Tour to the Hollywood Bowl here in SoCal and she managed to WOW absolutely every single person in attendance. David, Darion and I were lucky enough to attend last night’s show and we had THE time of our lives. Because David and I saw the larger, water-filled Les Folies-version of her tour in Berlin, Germany last March we were well prepared for last night’s performance … but seeing Kylie‘s show under the shell at the Hollywood Bowl was absolutely magical. Check out some photos from last night’s performance below. More »

Celebrating Emma’s Birth

The TV Guide

Last night David and I joined our dear friend Emma at Señor Fred in Studio City, CA to help her celebrate her birthday! The last minute dinner was made up of some of Emma’s closest friends and we all had a fun time just hanging out together. To be honest, I always have a great time hanging out with Emma and Josh but it was extra fun getting together for her birthday last night. More »

Ms. Lauryn Hill Brings The Funk To Pomona, CA

The TV Guide

Last night, David and I made the trek East to Pomona, CA to see Ms. Lauryn Hill (her professional name these days) live in concert. After taking many, many years off from her music career after the release of her sole album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill back in 1998, it would appear that Ms. Hill is working on a comeback. Lauryn played the Coachella Music Festival last month and only a handful of dates on her current tour thus far. We found out about Hill‘s SoCal concert stop at the very last minute and were lucky enough to snap up tix for the show. While there were a few problems with her performance, I’d say all in all that she is still an excellent singer and an exciting performer. More »

Rainy Days & Mondays

The TV Guide

The weather has cooled down considerably here in LA and the rain has begun to fall. In fact, the rain started to fall last night so I think we are moving into the “June Gloom” season earlier than expected :( David and I got to hang out with Emma and Josh last night as they housesat for friends and basically just spent the night catching up and eating take-out. ‘Twas a quiet night here in SoCal … but quiet nights with friends are the best nights ever.
