WHEN: Saturday, August 23
7-10 p.m. “Lexus Live on Grand” (Grand Ave. between 1st & 2nd St)
Hosted by Michael Chiarello, including live musical performances from Common and the amaWolseley Marimbas
Are you joining me Saturday, August 23rd at the annual Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival! I’m going to shake my groove thing to Common’s chocolate velvet dulcet words as I get to taste the food of top chefs from across the nation! In case you’re thinking this is all high falutin fancy food no .. it’s damn good food with wine and spirits that will dance with your tastebuds. You can discover new tastes as well as modern interpretations of classics from a BLT to caesar’s salad all between 1st & 2nd street between Grand avenue. It’s a night that is perfect for couples, singles and groups of friends who want to try anything that a great chef can think of and I’ve found they think of LOTS of ways to make great food!
So get a ticket before it sells out and get ready to enjoy multiple Grammy winning artist Common with the African children’s ensemble amaWolseley marimbas on the main stage. We’ll get to hear hits from Common’s tenth studio album Nobody’s Smiling as well as selected hit songs! I’m very excited to hear the kids perform marimba from these eight kids who’ve performed in South Africa and throughout the United States. It’s all part of the four-day epicurean fête produced by Coastal Luxury Management, also the team behind Pebble Beach Food & Wine. The festival is presented by founding partners FOOD & WINE and Lexus, as well as major partners Chase, Delta Air Lines, JENN-AIR, and The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
Not only will you be eating and drinking good you’ll be DOING good!
