Star Sightings and Bingo

Ok, so I knew that it was only a matter of time before I saw my first celeb since moving to LA and last night it finally happened! And not just one, I saw two stars in the same place! Lucky me! I saw JC Chasez from N'SYNC (the cutest one in my opinion...well, after Justin Timberlake) and actress Annalynne McCord from Nip Tuck and the new 90210. Of course I was very excited to see them and it felt pretty cool knowing that I live in the same city as these guys. Yet, I do know that if I continue to have nights like these, I'll stop being starstruck and realize that celebs are just people with very visible jobs. However, if I should see my top two celebs, John Mayer and Beyonce, I cannot be held responsible for my actions! : )
Last night, all this went down at Hamburger Mary's in West Hollywood. It is a fabulously gay-friendly restaurant.
"Hamburger Mary's franchises are "open-air bar and grilles for open-minded people," where guests enjoy a flamboyant dining experience. Everyone is welcome at Hamburger Mary's, but our concept is unique in that we are the ONLY national franchise actively marketing to the gay community. When you walk into a Hamburger Mary's it's like walking into Mary's home, where you will be greeted with a warm smile and friendly (if somewhat saucy) service. Each restaurant may be unique in its eclectic d├ęcor, but they all provide the friendliest service and highest quality food."

In addition to all of that, Wednesday is their Legendary Bingo Night! So, a few new friends and I enjoyed several rousing games of Bingo. You pay $20 for 5 or so games and all the money raised goes to a charity of their choice. Last night it went to Team in Training and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. This of course got me thinking about asking them to consider my two events this year and holding fundraisers for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Walk and Project AIDS Los Angeles. Stay tuned for more of that exciting idea!

Ok, back to the Bingo and the coolest part of the night, I actually won a game!! This never happens to me! I never win anything ever! Check out my winnings: $20 Gift Certificate to Wahoo's Fish Tacos, $20 Gift card to Trader Joes and $10 Gift card to Starbucks! Awesome, right? I am so glad that I went out last night!

  1. Sounds like a super fun night! Congratulations on your big win and star sightings. :)

    I know you get really excited about seeing them, but celebs are just people too and as much as you think you know them, you don't; they aren't your friends and they most likely don't give a sh** about you. Never the less, it is fun to see them out and about living their lives.

    Hosting a fundraiser at Hamburger Mary would be awesome...maybe we could do a joint event for our 3-Day Walk. Let me know what you find out.

    Here's to more fun adventures! xoxo
