On my way to the Johnny Hallyday opening night of his world tour at The Orpheum theater downtown Los Angeles, I stopped at Mercato di Vetro for what has now become a classic cocktail there: the truffle salt margarita.
French rocker Johnny Hallyday started his last world tour last night at The Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles. It was symbolic to him to start here, as Johnny got very, very sick in Los Angeles two years ago, and had to cancel a tour in France.
This picture with actor Jérémie Rénier was taken just before I was going to see the movie “Cloclo”, My Way, at the 2012 edition of COLCOA, the French Film Festival in Los Angeles. I was about to discover a superb performance by Rénier reincarnating French singer Claude François on the screen.
You can watch my exclusive video interview with Jérémie Rénier at GAYOT.com’s blog.
Both chef de cuisine Chris Crary and I did not do it on perhaps to be color coordinated for that picture taken after dinner at Whist at the Viceroy Santa Monica: in grey and white in front of the outdoor grey and white wall of china of the restaurant.
It’s too bad that my schedule is so busy that I am not able to attend Gail Eichenthal performing the C Major Prelude from Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier on a piano specially placed in the International Plaza on the USC campus. (Eichenthal is program director for KUSC, the only Southern California public radio station featuring classical music 24 hours a day, and executive producer of the weekly radio programs Arts Alive and LA Opera On Air.)
On April 12th at noon, she, along with 29 other professional and amateur pianists, will play the same classic simultaneously on 30 different pianos deployed all over the Los Angeles area from San Pedro to downtown L.A.
