What I’m talking about
The only thing that can get me camping is Dirty Dancing! I have been planning to have fun with Street Food Cinema this summer but this special night celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Dirty Dancing sounds like such fun that I’m ready to put my dancing shoes on. So am making plans and inviting friends to meet out at the King Gillette Ranch in Malibu on Saturday, July15th (King Gillette Ranch – 26800 Mulholland Hwy. Malibu, CA 91302).
Its two fun day of fun from dance lessons to the movie to breakfast the next day! I feel a need to cosplay with a ‘don’t put baby in the corner’ cute outfit.
3:30 pm – Check-in opens.
4:30pm – Dance Lessons begin.
6:30 pm – Band performs.
8:30 pm – Movie starts.
10:30 pm – Outdoor Lounge, Kellerman’s Karaoke and other post-movie activities open.
11:30pm – Midnight Hike begins.
Sunday, July 16th
8:00 am – Catered breakfast opens.
2:00 pm – Check-out.
If you aren’t in Los Angeles they have fun events in San Diego & Phoenix .. can I say ROAD TRIP! Leave a comment below what you want to see!
About: Street Food Cinema, the ultimate movie experience evolves into an unforgettable camping experience right in the middle of the Santa Monica Mountains, just above Malibu. This summer night retreat brings to life the classic elements of everyone’s beloved favorite with Kellerman’s summer resort including dance lessons with Johnny Castle, karaoke, and watermelons. It’s the summer of 1963 for Baby and Johnny, but we met them in the 80’s, so get ready for a 60’s/80’s decade mashup during this themed overnight experience (Sunday breakfast included).
I’m counting down the days for the 7th Annual The Food Event at the Vineyards of Saddlerock Ranch in the Malibu Hills from 2 – 5pm. Los Angles Magazine’s The Food Event 2012 is always the MUST attend intimate gathering of foodies and chefs showing off their creative genius in the most beautiful setting! Everytime I see the Saddlerock Ranch in the Malibu Hills it makes me want to have a wedding surrounded by grapes, blue skies and of course some of the best wine in Southern California! This year we get unlimited food from 40 restaurants, wine, spirits and treats galore all in a fun packed afternoon. So make sure you come hungry and have a designated driver!
Check out the details of this event that is grown up friendly and perfect to get not only your flirt on but your GRUB on!!! See you Sunday!

Every year I’m surprised at the press Los Angeles is getting as a food designation but not really. It used to be all the great chefs either came from NY or want to GO to New York City but SoCal is blessed with vibrant creative chefs who will be at Los Angeles Magazines ‘2012 Food Event‘ at the Saddlerock Ranch in the Malibu Hills. This is one of the jewels in the dining crown of SoCal on October 21st, Sunday from 2:00 – 5:00 pm you get to experience an afternoon of great chefs, culinary experts and sommeliers. Los Angeles Magazine’s 2012 Food Event will have in attendance more than 40 restaurants and wineries offering tastes of their signature seasonal dishes. You can purchase pre-sale tickets for $98 or for $103 you get a subscription to LA Magazine (GREAT Deal!) or you can wait till October 1st and pay $115. I recommend purchasing tickets early so that you won’t miss out on this wonderful fall event.
