Newscasters Gone Wild!
It all started innocently enough with ELV and his staff:
…seeking to squeeze a little art ed-gee-kae-shun into their pre-prandial booze routine:
But such thoughts lasted as long as an ELV vow of celibacy…especially after we dropped into Beso, and the champagne started flowing:
So ELV looked around the room:
…and noticed the gals taking secret snaps of a faded fifty-something at the bar who thought flashing butt-cleavage was in order for women of a certain age:
So being the responsible one, he thought some food was in order:
…but that didn’t help matters much (as the steak and mac ‘n cheese weren’t exactly top drawer) so we suggested heading to a different venue. But before you could say “Eva Longoria-Parker,” the gals had taken over the dance floor at Eve:
…which just made us thirstier.
So we headed to a brasserie:
Run by a guy named Puck, where intrepid, KLAS TV reporter Calvert “Don’t Mention My Cleavage” Collins began interrogating WP Executive Chef John LaGrone, in her best Columbia School of Journalism manner:
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, a cadre of cocktails were being created at Brasserie Puck‘s swanky bar:
…by mixology masters Gene Hetzel and Brandi Hackett:
…and some tasty food was served:
But, by this time, this group was about as interested in eating as it was in discussing the Smoot-Hawley Act of 1933.
Throughout, Emmy-Award winning Denise Valdez of Channel 8 news acted as the group’s one and only mature adult:
Gene continued to pour and instruct:
…and ELV had his usual:
Denise took tasty snaps of everything in sight:
…but in all the hubbub and hooch, everyone forgot it was The Food Gal®’s birthday:
Chefs soon got into the act:
….and someone had to remind Calvert she wasn’t in the Tri-Delt house anymore:
Before long, ELV was practicing his white man overbite with CC and Eric “Disco Boy” Villareale:
…which means he had about this much to drink:
…and it was time to call it a night:
…and take a designated driver home (which everyone did).
