The Premiere of The People I’ve Slept With at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, plus a burger dinner at Lucky Devils.
It is COLD tonight in Hollywood! The Los Angeles premiere of my movie “The People I’ve Slept With” is taking place at the historic Egyptian Theater, where it os the Gala Screening at Outfest’s Fusion Film Festival.
I do not want to remove my shawl and brave the red carpet…
…but I do it!
Had to show off the Stella & Jamie dress I borrowed, after all! But I immediately bundle up once I am done taking photos.
The theater is packed!
Since we already saw the movie in San Diego, we skipped the screening. After our director Quentin introduced the cast and the film, Abe and I slip out the back and over to dinner.
Walking down Hollywood Boulevard in heels makes me feel a little like Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman.” She doesn’t have a star on the Walk of Fame, but one of my favorite actresses, Cate Blanchett, does.
Yup, that shawl fringe is definitely hooker-ish.
We go to Lucky Devils for dinner, which is only about 3 blocks away from the theater but feels like an eternity walking in heels in the cold.
Abe orders a beer that looks so good…
…even I have a sip!
The menu has a lot of terrific options, including grass fed beef and free range turkey. But I decide to be like Abe and order the veggie burger, since they sounded so good: “Sauteed portobellos, shredded beets, almonds & walnuts, plus 21 other ingredients, white cheddar, fresh avocado, caramelized onions, house 1,000 island, wild arugula, and toasted brioche bun.”
Abe gets his with sweet potato fries. I order mine without the cheddar. I feel like there is enough going on in that burger that it doesn’t need it.
And I am right – there are so many textures and flavors going on! I wonder what those “21 other ingredients” are. It is delicious, but extremely messy and falls apart with every bite. I had my shawl on the entire time so I wouldn’t spill anything on the dress! I share about 1/3 of Abe’s sweet potato fries and pasilla garlic aioli.
Back to the theater for the after party – schmoozing, signing autographs, and taking photos with fans.
I’m just not used to all that walking and standing in heels! My feet are going to fall off so we head home. It’s already 1:30 am – which is really 2:30 am because of daylight savings. Who is this wild woman?! Between the late bedtime, the beer, the heels, and braving the cold – it’s definitely an out-of-ordinary night.
