Summertime Begins with Opening Night at The Hollywood Bowl

Last Friday was definitely a night to remember….  My sassy, little entourage and I attended The 89th Opening Night at the Hollywood Bowl!!  It was a first class night from beginning to end.

We started the night at the VIP COCKTAIL RECEPTION where we sipped our first few glasses of bubbly and nibbled on some yummy Hors D’oeuvres provided by Patina Catering.  Patina is known for providing guests with the very finest cuisine and exceptional service at extraordinary landmark locations such as the Hollywood Bowl.  Friday night was no exception; their staff was bending over backwards to make sure we were all well taken care of.  After the reception, we took our seats in the Garden Box where we were treated to a bottle of white and red Gallo wine along with a delicious dinner to die for!!  The Hall of Fame concert preformed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic started at 8:30 where Donna Summer, The Carpenters, and Jean-Yves Thibaudet were all being honored.  The Queen of Disco looked amazing and had everyone on their feet lookin’ for some “Hot Stuff” baby!  Richard Carpenter seemed delighted, and almost gitty to be part of such a special night, especially during the tribute to his late sister Karen Carpenter.

Of course, the highlight of the whole evening was the dessert being served during intermission!  Yep, The Hollywood Bowl treated everyone in a box seat to a four or six pack of Gotta Have S’more “S’muffins”!  It was so much fun walking around watching everyone rip open their little gift and gobble down the surprise inside. What a perfect way to kick off the summer!  How will I ever top this one next year?  Thank you so much Jennie May, Special Events Coordinator, Los Angeles Philharmonic Association.
