What the Manolo Is…

Manolo says, after the weekend of the long holiday, the Manolo he is back at his computer, and will now provide his many internet friends with list of what the Manolo is…


Listening to…


The Manolo he is doing what he traditionally does when he spends his months in the Los Angeles, visiting all of his favorite places for the dining and the watching of the celebrities.

Last week, at the Giorgio Baldi’s, the Manolo, he and his companion, they were seated at the table next to the very amusing and lively Cloris Leachman, who was one table over from the Robert Wagner. Half way through the meal of the grilled langostines (indeed super fantastic!), the Giada de Laurentis appeared and said hello before being seated. On the way out of the restaurant, it was the Ricky Jay who was to be seen waiting in the car park.

As one may see, the Manolo he is unashamedly among those easily impressed by the minor stars.

    Up the Junction!

    Manolo, you’re so cute. My personal favorite Encounter with the Stars is the time Shirley McLaine and I (she in her beautiful Jaguar, me in my rusty 1970 VW Bug) — in a synchronized parking lot dance — pulled in nose-to-nose, got out of our cars, looked at each other and laughed.

    The Manolo, he has the exquisite taste in the music.

    Minor stars?! I loved Cloris Leachman in “The North Avenue Irregulars!”

    I love Cloris Leachmen! Not too surprising really, given my name.

    When at Giorgio Baldi, you MUST try their white truffle pasta special. So very expensive, but so very delectable. Otheriwse, I am partial to the dover sole — light with a hint of lemon twinge.
