Beefsteak V at Vibiana

The 5th annual Beefsteak took place at Vibiana on February 6, 2016 – all proceeds donated to the LA Food Bank.

“It described a feast of epic proportions known simply as a “Beefsteak.” A rite of gluttony that waged war on the livers of politicians and gangsters alike, the Beefsteak thrived in the saloons and political halls of the 19th and early 20th centuries. The menu was always the same — sliced steak served on toast, au jus or gravy, and all the beer you could drink. Knives, forks, plates and napkins were forbidden. The life of the party was the guest who let out the most appreciative grunts, drank the most beer, and consumed the most steak.”

The Good Beginning

thegoodbeginninginstagramThe Good Beginning is a a new online registry where couples who either have everything they could ever want or simply want to start their wedding off by giving back, can register for donations to their favorite charities in lieu of or in addition to the typical salad bowl or toaster. The registry allows couples to either choose from a list of featured organizations or upload their own personal favorites and then create a personal portal that they can embed into your wedding website or share directly with guests. Alternatively guests can also go to the site and search for each couple by name.
In addition to the registry feature, The Good Beginning will feature fashion, design and wedding planning tips on how to easily plan a socially conscious wedding including ideas like this post on Ethiopian bridesmaids gifts where one bride gave each bridesmaid a pendant that pays 6 months worth of salary for a teacher in Ethiopia.
We love this concept as there is no time like the beginning of a marriage to start the ritual of giving back and doing good in the world. Register or learn more at www.thegoodbeginning.com.

Inner City Arts 2015 Imagine Awards at Vibiana

Inner City Arts improves children’s chances to thrive by developing creativity, improving academic achievement & building self-confidence. Vibiana was honored to host the 2015 Imagine Awards, produced and designed by Bob Gail Events.

The event was inspired by Pop Art with vibrant colors and whimsical details.  A plexi and boxwood step-and-repeat, a 4-sided custom hedge bar adorned with framed artwork made by the students, colorful lounge vignettes and cocktail tables, and an interactive yarn bomb art piece complete with interactive food stations was incorporated into our Garden Courtyard, while Bob Gail Events juxtaposed the architecture of the space with a neon-colored paint splattered ceiling.

Thank you Kara Fein Photography for the photos.
