Jay Leno at Vintage Hollywood

Jay Leno at Vintage Hollywood

I recently attended the annual Vintage Hollywood Charity event benefiting Children’s Action Network at a private home in Brentwood on the west side of Los Angeles. Several of my favorite restaurants including Sushi Roku, The Tavern, James Beach, and Whist at the Viceroy were there serving some of their signature dishes. ?I especially enjoyed the crayfish waffles served by The Buffalo Club in Santa Monica.

Many wineries were on hand including Cielo in Malibu which will be opening their wine tasting room later this year for private parties.

I had the chance to say hello to Evan Handler, best known as Charlotte’s husband, Harry Goldenblatt in the television series and movie, Sex and the City as well as his current SHOWTIME program, Californication with David Duchovny.?I personally thanked him for his encouragement last year when I started writing my first book, The Perils of Cyber-Dating, when we met at his book signing for It’s Only Temporary, hosted by the Young Literati of the Council for the Library Foundation of Los Angeles.

The highlight of the evening was Jay Leno’s live auction where he chuckled with the crowd about auctioning off the one hour voice lesson with Kristen Chenoweth, where he promised a “Happy Ending” as well as tickets to the 2010 finale of Dancing with the Stars. Several individuals made bids for the one hour private tour of Jay Leno’s ?garage. Jay graciously accepted everyone’s bids for a total of $30,000 to benefit Children’s Action Network. What a nice guy, right? After the live auction, I said hello to Jay and his lovely wife Mavis and let them know that Jay was mentioned in my book under “The Men of Harley Davidson.” Mavis, got a chuckle out of it!
