A gal can't let a recession cramp her style. So I'm putting on a little DIY show with two friends -artist Anne Jordan and writer of musicals/ blogger/ hostess extraordinaire Kate Sullivan- in Kate's gorgeous Silverlake apartment. Kate will be making her signature summer cocktails, serving up gourmet vittles in the secret garden, and no doubt greeting every guest with massive hugs whether she knows them or not. At the risk of sounding immodest I'm gunna go ahead and throw this out there: it's going to be the cat's pajamas. I hope you can come. It would be pretty rad to meet some of you coastal kittens!
