Time for my Slowtravel friends to arrive for our annual "SlowBowl/Super Bowl" weekend. Kicked off the events with a dinner at Top Chef's own Fabio Viviani's restaurant in North Hollywood, "Firenze Osteria" last night.
Me with my great slowtravel friend "Deborah" from St. Louis, Missouri
Slowtravel friends Marcia and David from Pasadena
Here' s Chris and Jen from Missouri
Firenze Osteria has a great list of inventive Martinis. This one was my choice, Rasberry Lemon Drop...mmmm
Here are two great chefs in their own right: Slowtraveler Jerry from Canada and Palma from Palm desert
It was so much fun to see old travel friends and to know we have the weekend to celebrate together. We will be going north to the Santa Barbara/Santa Maria area and joining about 50 more friends for a weekend of fun, food and wine adventures. Hitting the road soon. More blogposts on this weekend coming your way.
