I am so fortunate to have been on the guest list for Wolfgang Puck Catering’s Summer BBQ. The rooftop party was held at L.A. Live in Downtown LA, which is such a beautiful venue. It’s elegant and has a picturesque skyline view. This view reminds me of how much I love the grit and the glam of DTLA. The guests were friendly and fun. I didn’t even get side eye for making the waiters let me take so many pictures of the treats they were supposed to be serving. The catering food and service was on par with what you’d expect from the name Wolfgang Puck.

I’m going to take you all on a journey of the event through pictures. Enjoy!
You have to enter L.A. Live through the Grammy Museum. I’m a Swiftie, so I geeked out pretty hard at this.
Loved my swine t-shirt made on-site by Hit + Run. Cute and Cozy.
Loved the ice bucket style sodas. There Mexican Cokes and handcrafted sodas. The Cherry Peach soda was the biggest hit.
This is the Garden Collins cocktail that was being served. Very light and refreshing.
There were plenty of carnivorous options. Yes, that’s Beer Can Chicken.
The Chefs were hard at work grilling for us.

 

The day may have started out overcast but it brightened up in time for the event.
Chicharrones with a blue cheese dressing, celery and drizzled with buffalo sauce.
Strawberry Bruschetta: Crostini topped with strawberries, slivered almonds and a little spinach. Perfect for a hot Summer day.
Duck Rillettes wrapped with Watermelon Radish.
One of my all-time favorites salads, grilled Caeser salad. Grilling the romaine brings a smokiness out of the lettuce. It’s a must try.
This is the most adorable Crudités set up I’ve ever seen. The Crudités are kept crisp by filling the pot with ice, and stuffing them in, as if you were gardening. The bucket of ranch is so cute too.
Traditional Caprese with a twist: The Heirloom tomatoes were paired with peach to add a touch of sweetness.
This event had fun games, including corn holing. I can’t type that with a straight face…
I decided to take a surf and turf approach. Top left: Pork topped with a chimichurri sauce. Top right: Lobster with corn puree. Bottom: Candied Bacon. All of these were awesome and the candied bacon really got my respect by not being too sticky. 

 

Onto the dessert portion: Flambé banana on top of Nutella pudding.
So tiny, yet so powerful: This was a red velvet wrap. The wrap was the cake and the filling was the cream cheese frosting. It’s like a mini-magical crepe.
It got a little chilly so I ended my food binge with a cappuccino from Long Shot Coffee.
I had to leave before sundown. A view of the Hotel Figeroa. And Arnold.
