I don't know what it is about L.A., but I have to say that the people are beautiful, and I mean that in the most sincere sense. Maybe it's all the patience they develop from sitting in their cars, waiting for the wingnut in the car ahead of them to move. Of course, that's the New Yorker in me talking. My L.A. friends are all more patient than that, as I learned recently when showing up fashionably late to the BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood for Numanthia's latest installment of their fine wine and food pairing dinner series.
My only disappointment that evening turned out to be the traffic. Once I arrived, I was treated to an evening filled with fine food, excellent wine and some of the sweetest people I've had the pleasure of meeting in quite some time.
