LA Yacht Entertainment's 63-foot yacht has traveled as far north as Seattle, and as far south as Mexico. With an impeccable safety record and a maple hardwood interior, she now spends her says ferrying passengers on trips out of Marina del Rey. From there, she heads into the Pacific, letting guests sip drinks from and enjoy views without first learning to ride a seagull.
Nottingham-born chef Brendan Collins never forgets where he came from: he named his British gastropub Waterloo & City after a London train line he often rode as a boy. In the kitchen, he melds his British sensibilities with a repertoire of French culinary techniques and butchery training to create upscale pub dishes using a bounty of seasonal, local ingredients. Driven by a belief in using every part of the animal, he pairs standard cuts of lamb and Angus beef with charcuterie he creates in-house, such as head cheese with English mustard and smoked tongue and carrot terrine . Waterloo & City’s décor also speaks to its English roots. Recycled church pews painted in vibrant colors line the lounge, and guests in the dining room kick back in taupe suede banquettes and black, high-backed wooden chairs that complement bright lime baseboards. Antique mirrors and framed vintage photographs float around a central 30-foot copper-topped bar, where bartenders infuse each beer with a Cockney accent.

A good mixologist can create a drink for any occasion, whether it’s a special cocktail for a wedding, a classic sidecar for poker night, or an alcohol-free invention for a kids’ party. The crew of drinkmakers at Royal Blue Bartending goes one step further, mixing and pouring the drinks themselves behind their mobile bar. They craft a custom menu for every client, consulting over the phone before the event to put together the drink list and determine if they need to wear any special outfits. On the big day, they arrive one hour before the party to set up their bar and touch base with the host. Then, they begin up to five hours of drink duty, inundating the get-together with beverages and providing friendly conversation and tiny straws to anyone with a mouth. Afterward, they break down their temporary bar as efficiently as they constructed it, leaving behind only the heady memory of the drinks they served.
In 1981, college roommates Cheryl Krueger and Caryl Walker opened a bakery called Cheryl’s Cookies. Over time they began to use their ovens for more than just those eponymous cookies, and seven years later they opted to simplify the name to Cheryl's. These days the versatile bakery churns out an assortment of cakes and brownies alongside their signature happy-face cookies. Most of the treats are certified kosher and come in a variety of flavors, from snickerdoodle to buttercream. Sugar-free options sate sensitive teeth, and treats can be combined to create gift baskets, tins, and boxes for informal or formal occasions.
