Winning sure looked easy Wednesday night at our “Best of LA” party, which took place at the rooftop Above SIXTY in Beverly Hills. The event was held to celebrate the 83 local business owners and industry professionals we carefully selected for our annual “Best of LA” August issue.
This year’s crop of winners in categories like “Best All-Day Breakfast,” “Best Caftans,” and “Best Community Garden” mingled with magazine staff and “Best of LA” alums from years past, as tasty hors d’oeuvres from Caulfield’s Bar and Dining Room and Sprinkles cupcakes decorated with the mag’s logo were passed around. Grey Goose and Peroni sponsored the bash.
Editor in chief Mary Melton spoke briefly poolside to congratulate the winners and explain the magazine’s rigorous Best of L.A. selection process. Finding and calling out the top resources across the city, she explained, has been a yearly tradition since our November 1989 issue, when Sally Field graced the cover in a festive top hat.
Cheers to this year’s Best of L.A.!
