Gourmet Ghosts 2 is available on Amazon, and is in stores across L.A (see Where To Buy). It got this AMAZING review from the Dwarf + Giant blog:

Read the whole review here.

We had great fun at our other recent events too…

Also my recent work about the 40th anniversary of the unique Bonaventure Hotel, bird’s nest soup cocktails, and the 50th anniversary of the LA Zoo!
