Angeleno Celebrated June Cover Star Common

| September 15, 2017 | Parties

Angeleno magazine threw a fabulous dinner party in honor of June cover star Common.

THE PARTY Angeleno’s closest friends gathered in Brentwood to laud the magazine’s June cover star, actor/rapper Common. Held at posh steakhouse Baltaire, the intimate event attracted partygoers like Modern Luxury VP of Creative and Fashion Director James Aguiar and Angeleno Publisher Chris Gialanella who enjoyed a sparkling rosé and sangria-filled cocktail hour prior to sitting down for supper. THE SCENE The gorgeous tablescape—which was overflowing with flowers from boutique florist Grand Eclair—served as the perfect spot to enjoy chef Travis Strickland’s menu of kanpachi crudo, lobster risotto, a steak filet and Harry’s Berries with whipped yogurt for dessert. THE HIGHLIGHTS While Common and photographer Brian Bowen Smith’s hilarious banter back and forth was certainly a highlight, it was when Common asked all of the attendees to join hands prior to dinner in an effort to say thanks for the delicious meal that proved to be the most touching part of the evening. -Meg McGuire
