Angeleno partnered with Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows yet again for the 17th Annual Live & Dine here in Los Angeles. Our nonprofit partner City of Hope brought a stunning floral photo moment, and CBS2/KCAL9 had on-air talent on-hand to greet guests & pass out cupcakes. Highlights included the Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism's fun rum lounge where guests were dancing to Dominican grooves, and Black River Caviar's caviar & vodka pairings.
Guests certainly did not go thirsty, with Lillet returning with their iconic cart, florals & summery Lillet spritz, and Beam Suntory brought the distillery to the Fairmont, erecting architectural bar installations for Basil Hayden’s bourbon (and bourbon-soaked cheeses!) and House of Suntory's assorted cocktails.
The "live" in "Live & Dine" was well-represented with this year's Wellness Walk, which featured Breedlove Lab, Camp’d Out, Holy Sage, Indigo Fitness, My Sweet Basil, Rosebud Woman, and Vie Healing.
IACCW returned with Angelini Osteria, Cal Mare Restaurant, and Gelato Festival, all of which featured Pecorino Toscano DOP in their recipes. Guests were treated to delectable tastings from Alta Adams, Autec Sushi Robot, Calabra, Chateau Hanare, Emporium Thai, Fig, Hippo, Malibu Beach Inn’s Carbon Beach Club, O’Dang Hummus, Ocean Prime, Pizza Girl, Sari Sari Store, The Jersey Tomato Co., The Waterfront, Triple Beam Pizza, Viviane, and Wok Star Catering.
As the sun set under the Fairmont's 167-year old fig tree, bellies were full & glasses emptied on yet another successful (& delicious!) Live & Dine.
