    bravo, krista! 

    sarah, krista and ali just a year ago krista and i were lounging poolside at the swanky Roosevelt Hotel on Hollywood Blvd. trying to figure out what we were gonna do next now that we were no longer at the LA Times.

    i had some leads, she had some leads, but most importantly we had drinks :)

    last night there we were again poolside at the Roosevelt except one major difference was she was celebrating the fact that she was on tv once a week on one of the biggest shows, Top Chef Masters, where she is the lovable and insightful young judge.

    bravo, i believe threw the bash (in the same bungalow where i interviewed Bruce Willis) and delicious drinks flowed and some of the most appetizing sliders made their way into our bellies.

    my our i mean sarah, ali, myself and several dozen journalists and fans of the show.

    there was even a guy cutting delicious slices of steak. no garnish, no bread, just steak with pepper.

    it was amazing.

    servers came around with cale salad (pass), breaded jumbo shrimp (thank you), and later devine bits of chocolate, but the best part was hearing the cheers of the crowd any time krista appeared on many of the tvs on the walls.

    krista was one of the hardest working people at the Times. she basically ran Brand X with just two others – a feat that was accomplished with a dozen hard working journalists a year prior. and shes so damn smart and sweet that it is even more delightful to see her ship come in.

    her brother and dad were also in attendance, also. beaming. her dad passing out Sees candies warning people that they’re aphrodisiacs.

    way ahead of you, mr. simmons: we already love your daughter.
