Summer is a feast for countless festivals and street fairs, from garlic to wine, strawberries to lobster, there is something for every taste bud and salivary gland... :o)

Ladies Night Out is a tribute to all things summer.  Food, shopping, live music and more...

With special discounts and plenty of edible goodies Ladies Night Out is a perfect evening for the foodie and shopaholic in all of us. Don't be fooled by the name, an evening with the ladies involves the whole family. While the ladies are getting their shop on the men can sample a variety of cuisine from the multitude of food trucks. This is defiantly a family event!

But I must say the highlight of my evening was the discovery of Two Ships bake shop. There is a divine creative soul cranking out some sweet treats and these might just be my favorite French Macaroons ever! From one creative endeavor to another Jaime is painting a canvas of delectable baked goods with simple ingredients. Two words Mexican - Chocolate (macaroon that is)

Lucky for us Ladies Night Out is a year round event. So be sure to check out the festivities on the last Friday of every month, oh and be sure to follow Two Ships bake shop to discover where they'll be next.

This years wine festival was a blast and supported an amazing cause Rock Against Trafficking.
R.A.T is a non-profit in support of ending child slavery worldwide. It always feels good to support a great cause while having a little fun.

And fun was had until the wee morning hours...

The food was great, the wine flowed, and the summer fashion was abundant!
Wine festivals are a great way to explore a variety foods, wine, and spirits. I highly recommend making it a point to attend The Calabasas Malibu Wine & Food Festival next summer. Be sure to get your tickets early as the event will sell out!

The food of my soul is music. So often it's a song, a piece of music that inspires me to create. The graphic art above was inspired by a song called The Newspaper by Citizen Cope. To me the song is a poetic journey of our material culture, insight you can move your hips to... Our willingness to believe what we see through the eyes of the media as an expression of truth i.e. Wag the Dog. Right or wrong the message of this song is beautiful and like much of his work Cope influences my imagination.
