A passion for food + fashion

Block Party

In On Location: Out and About in L.A. on July 12, 2010 at 11:30 am

I’m willing to go out on a banner-strewn limb and say that we live on the best block in Los Angeles. On Saturday, we had a block party—closed down the street, dj, grilling, a trumpeter! and a kid’s bicycle parade as well as water balloons, fireworks, a ping pong tournament and a treasure hunt. Oh—and a bicycle built for two. How glam is my neighbor Martha in a floor-length frock?

In addition to all the fun and games, there was the food. I can’t stop thinking about my neighbor Marc’s rosemary flatbread that Mr. Foodinista cooked on the grill. Or Judy’s Gruyere, mushroom and truffle mac n’ cheese, which she served in individual cupcake liners. I’ve begged for their recipes, so check back later this week for a taste of the best block party in LA! In the meantime, trumpeter Mona leads the kiddie bicycle parade:

  1. You do live on the best block in Los Angeles!

  2. S—you and the boys have to come next year! We are really going to blow it out! xx

  3. I will be checking back regularly for the truffle mac-n-cheese recipe!

  4. OMG, this looks like SO much fun! The bicycle parade makes my heart swoon!! Fingers crossed for that mac-n-cheese recipe. Sounds yummy.🙂

  5. I am so happy that I crashed your block party, it was a blast and we can’t wait for next year!!
