At City Lab’s Maker LA this past Monday at the Ace Theater downtown, where Eric Garcetti, LACMA’s Michael Govan, Rick Caruso, and chef Roy Choi were joined by LA entrepreneurs to discuss the future of our city, Garcetti said he wants Los Angeles to be the first city to offer residents rides in driverless cars. He said the city could be the first place really in an urban center where we have autonomous vehicles that are able to be ordered up (like a car service). #CityLab2014 #MakerLA #TheJetsons
The LA Philharmonic Began New Season with a celebration of John Williams on September 30. Over $3.4 million was raised for the LA Phil’s many music education programs. Spotted: Eric Garcetti & Amy Wakeland, Angjelica Houston, Michael & Jane Eisner, Frank Gehry, Ben Harper, Sherry Lansing, William Shatner, Julie Andrews, John Williams, Gustavo Dudamel & Eloisa Knife Maturen, Darth Vader and his trusty Stormtroopers.
Help me #ObiWanKenobi, you’re my only hope! @karynlovegrove plays it sweet while I fail at getting the #stormtroopers to join the #rocketts or do the#cancan. #laphil #laphilgala — By @jessicatrentpr (Jessica Trent)

George Fest — All-Star Tribute to George Harrison at the Fonda – 9/28
@evbro: “Dhani Harrison. Brian Wilson. Weird Al. Conan O’Brien. Ben Harper. Norah Jones. Nancy Wilson. This doesn’t even account for half the people I saw on one stage tonight at GeorgeFest.”
Behind the scenes at @THR’s @Longines #LAMasters photo shoot w/ Georgina Bloomberg, Jennifer Gates, & Paige Johnson.
The daughters of Bill and Melinda Gates, Michael Bloomberg, and BET founders Robert and Sheila Johnson competed this past weekend in the first annual LA Masters downtown, along with Bruce Springsteen’s daughter Jessica Springsteen, and are profiled in this weeks issues of The Hollywood Reporter. Here is a behind-the-scenes video from the THR photo shoot with Georgina Bloomberg, 31, Paige Johnson, 29, Jennifer Gates, 18. THR has a separate story on Jessica. Her father the Boss was in attendance over the weekend to watch her compete.
Nicole Dosso, technical director of 1 World Trade Center, is the most famous architect you’ve never heard of. When I met her, the 40-year-old Dosso, who runs marathons in her spare time, was effortlessly chic–more Paris than New York–in a brightly patterned Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress, steeply pitched white patent leather heels, and a string of silvery pearls.

John Terzian, who went to Harvard-Westlake and Brian Toll, who went to Beverly Hills High (Bootsy Bellows), Mark and Jonnie Houston (Harvard & Stone, Pour Vous, La Descarga, Piano Bar, No Vacancy, Butchers & Barbers), Darren Dzienciol, who also went to Beverly, and Scott Sartiano (1 OAK), Andrew Meieran (The Edison, Clifton’s) and David Cooley (The Abbey) are profiled in this month’s LA Confidential.

Daily Davis, Vol. 1 is now up on Daily Front Row. Peter Davis, part of the Mortimer family in NY, was previous at Avenue and Scene (which was funded by Ivanka Trump’s hubbie Jared Kushner who also owns NY Observer). The column describes itself as “the most delicious fashion dish and ultra insider scoop.’ Sounds good to us! He kicks off his new column describing Sienna Miller and Caroline Winberg smooching on the lips at Eddie Spencer Churchill’s 40th birthday bash.
Harry Morton, 33, and son of Peter Morton, shepherds us through his favorite Malibu haunts, where his family has had a house since he was 4, including Tony’s Taverna, Neptune’s Net, Malibu Farm (on the Malibu pier), Latigo Canyon for cycling, and Zuma beach where he trained with his brother this summer for the Malibu Triathlon.
