Twin Peaks San Francisco California
Grandma takes her grandson to Twin Peaks when he visits San Francisco, California. The feeling is as majestic as when you sit on top of the world in San Francisco. Twin Peaks is a memory to save for a lifetime after a single view. No other view offers a visitor more of San Francisco than Twin Peaks, which is why our family takes all our visitors from out to town to the top of the peaks.
Zappos is known for giving generously to the community, but to see that giving spirit come out today first hand for the high school students living in Las Vegas, I was bewildered by how wonderful the company is. They make so many people happy. Mothers were proudly watching their children pick out gorgeous dresses for prom. Free dresses. Given away by Zappos community spirit. Daughters were given dresses for high school proms, manicured nails with bright colors. Hair stylists were helping. The shoes were in rows stacked high. Zappos transformed their entire mall in the old City Hall to give away free tuxedos, prom gowns flowing with beauty, attractive high heeled shoes with styled fashion, and then combined that generosity with free dancing lessons, hair dressers, free limo rides in luxury shuttles. Disc jockeys played music. Today was the first day in 2017 when the heated temperature raised above 90 degrees F. Zappos had bottled water, cool fans, food, everybody was simply happy dancing, shopping, and thinking about a bright future at their high school prom. I was honestly overwhelmed by how much their company embraces the community, especially when I met the proud mothers, who drove their daughters to find a dress. The atmosphere was surrounded with a recognized pride.

NASCAR Kobalt 400 was amazing and now the races will arrive in Las Vegas twice each year.
I had an amazing time last night in Las Vegas as Councilman Bob Beers opens the new Dance Studio with the professionals dancers Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Valentin Chmerkovskiy, Tony Dovolani from the TV Show “Dancing with the Stars”. My wife watches them all the time. She loves the show. So today we are driving back to Tivoli Village to sign up our family for dance lessons.
Echo and Rig Tivoli Village Las Vegas
440 S Rampart Blvd
Las Vegas, NV 89145
Las Vegas is full of fabulous chefs. I conducted a breakfast interview with a famous chef at MGM Resorts who asked to meet me for breakfast at Cafe Leone in Tivoli Village. The time was early. As soon as Echo & Rig opened up across the street from Cafe Leone, the chef jumped up saying, “Come with me.” They took me inside Echo & Rig. They said, “It is the best!” The best chefs and bakers in Las Vegas enjoy eating at Echo & Rig. Yesterday the professionals on Dancing with the Stars opened their new dance studio named Dance with Me Summerlin across the street. All the people went to eat dinner at Echo & Rigs. The place was so packed that they had to put out tables and chairs for people to sit on as they waited. Each diner beamed with a smile. The place is gorgeous. The food delicious. Tivoli Village is masterful. Dining in Tivoli Village gives each bite the impression on the brain that you are dining in Europe. Combine the atmosphere with the taste at Echo & Rig and your experience is similar to traveling outside of Las Vegas for a weekend vacation in an exotic city separated from the gambling gaming town full of casinos.

D’Angelo’s Bakery and Bread Santa Barbara, California
My friends in Europe think first of D’Angelo’s Bakery whenever the word “Santa Barbara” is mentioned or showcased on television. For years, I take all my international friends when they fly in from overseas to LAX straight north to D’Angelo’s Bakery at 25 West Gutierrez Street in Santa Barbara, California. Occasionally we just walk with their bread in our hands down State Street and munch on the flavor while sightseeing or shopping around the galleries. Each pastry is excellent. Each dish perfection. Tourists travel to Santa Barbara just to eat at D’Angelo’s Bread. I lived in Santa Barbara eighteen years ago and this was the case then. There are always lines of customers who will only eat at D’Angelo’s Bread.

Santa Barbara is peaceful, but the quality luxury that is found in Santa Barbara, especially for visitors from out of town like our family, Santa Barbara Roasting Company defines the quality of the perfect life living near the sea on the ocean called State Street with the fine restaurants serving unique seafood dishes, authentic chocolate handcrafted right next door to the Roasting Company. How unique is that? What a special city Santa Barbara is. The mocha aromas filled with mint while showcasing surf boards on the wall with fresh baked pastries behind glass. The friendly atmosphere. We arrived from Las Vegas, Nevada. Las Vegas has many casinos, gambling destinations, slot machines, Thus those reading, relaxing, enjoying their baked pastries with light coffee, you must imagine how nice Santa Barbara is for us to visit driving in from the Mojave desert, especially coffee houses with such quality as your Santa Barbara Roasting Company. Less we forget to mention the shops only inches away from this coffee house – Maya Chocolate, Yoga Soup, D’Angelo’s Bakery; Those places were simply one corner, one simple corner, of this seaside beach city. Santa Barbara is masterpiece.
