  • ByuTi new salon opening in Brentwood by Jordan Landes-Brenman

                                          My ByuTi Brentwood hair journal

    My byu-ti hairstylist Stacy Ellis gave me a  initial consultation. She gave my waist length hair some long layers, and then used a hair dryer and roundbrush to blow out my naturally wavy hair. Stacy then used a Hot Tools curling iron to create curls, which she then brushed out into soft waves. I loved the results! All products are by Redken and Pureology.

    It is a gorgeous salon and the staff was very helpful and knowledgable. I met with the owner Natasha and we talked about the great promo where anytime a guest comes and gets a service they get something in the mail within days after their appointment which includes 3 items: 20% off their next appointment, 20% off any product, and a gift certificate for a complimentary service for a friend to use to get a service at their salon. Byu-Ti is very into giving back to their customers, their community and really places a high value on customer service.

    ByuTi’s new salon opening in Brentwood is located at 11740 San Vicente Boulevard, floor 2, Los Angeles California

  • “The Tragedy of Tupac" A Theatrical Production by Angeli Kakade


    The Tradegey of Tupac Shakur or Who Shot Me? opened with an impressive two sold out shows at the Triad Theater September 13th, the late rapper’s 15th death anniversary.  The play is a 90-minute snap shot of Tupac Shakur’s life from a child witnessing his mother’s involvement in the Black Panther Party to the fateful night he was shot.  It is part comedy, part drama, and a fairly accurate portrayal of his aggressive personality and knack for pushing the lyrical boundaries; which subsequently led to his first record deal and ultimately to him becoming one of the greatest rappers of all time.


    Co- playwrights George Carroll and Christina Tyler are quite brilliant in their story telling and manage to capture Tupac’s sharp wit, quick temper, and emotional under layer.

    Actor Damian Bailey manages to make the job of bringing Tupac Shakur to life seem effortless. It also doesn’t hurt he shares a remarkable resemblance to the late rapper.


    The Tragedy of Tupac Shakur or Who Shot Me? has just signed on additional dates at New York City’s Triad Theater for November.

  • Bortolomiol Prosecco Announces Launch of “Giuliano Bortolomiol: Dreaming of Prosecco,” A Biography Honoring Company’s Iconoclastic Founder

    NEW YORK, June 29, 2011--Bortolomiol Valdobbiadene, a family-owned boutique winery, today
    announced the launch of “Giuliano Bortolomiol: Dreaming of Prosecco,” a newly published
    biography of the company’s iconoclastic founder.  The book, written by acclaimed journalist Ettore
    Gobbato and published by Veronelli Editore, will be available in the U.S. in the fall.  The book,
    translated into English, debuted at a special event at the Setai Fifth Avenue Hotel in New York City.  
    Featuring a Prosecco tasting by Elvira Bortolomiol, a Prosecco expert who is continuing Giuliano’s 
    Prosecco-making legacy, together with her mother and three sisters.

    The book, which is the first to honor a Prosecco maker, chronicles the life and accomplishments of
    Giuliano Bortolomiol, who transformed what was once a simple local wine into an internationally
    acclaimed sparkler.  Giuliano was the first to use the Charmat method to create Proseccos in a brut
    style.  This was controversial at the time, but was later widely adopted.  He also spearheaded the 
    region’s efforts to attain the DOCG designation.  It is part of the “Bold Series” by Veronelli Editore
    that spotlights men and women who valued the lands in which they lived and worked, were able to
    influence people’s behavior and, through their work, changed the status quo.

    “We are honored to have my father’s life documented and celebrated,” said Ms. Bortolomiol.  “He
    was a man of action who was passionate about making Prosecco a true star.  He was also very
    modest and personally shunned the spotlight.  I think he would be very proud of this sensitive and
    insightful depiction.”

    Ms. Bortolomiol showcased and poured three different Proseccos, Brut, Banda Rossa Extra Dry and
    Superiore di Cartizze Dry, which are renowned for their finesse, complexity and distinctiveness. 
    While Americans have in recent years come to appreciate Prosecco as a fun and lively aperitivo,
    these Bortolomiol Proseccos, with their DOCG designation, will introduce them to the highest level 
    of quality.  Classic Italian dishes, prepared by the chef of the Setai Fifth Avenue Hotel, will
    accompany these exceptional Proseccos.  Ms. Bortolomiol discussed the scenic Valdobbiadene
    region as one of Italy’s increasingly popular travel destinations and signed copies of the book, which
    was given to all attendees.

    About Bortolomiol Valdobbiadene
    Bortolomiol Valdobbiadene is a family-owned, boutique winery with the winemaking roots that date
    back to 1760, when Bartolomeo Bortolomiol began cultivating vines on the hillsides of 
    Valdobbiadene.  The company itself was founded in 1949 by Giuliano Bortolomiol, who 
    revolutionized how Prosecco was made and elevated it to a worldclass bubbly.  A master of the 
    Charmat method, he created the first Prosecco in the brut style in 1960.  Today Giuliano’s
    daughters--Maria Elena, Elvira, Luisa and Giuliana--together with their mother, Ottavia, carry on
    Giuliano’s legacy by producing award-winning Proseccos.  For more information, please visit
