Annual Oscars Party List 2013

oscar-parties-los-angeles-2013

Welcome to the 2013 Oscars party list; one of our favorite lists to write because the Oscars are the one awards show that cater to the out-of-town jet set by having party hosts like Mario Testino, Madonna, Charles Finch, Nick Berggruen, and Larry Gagosian who lure in the NY and European counterparts to the city for the week … Bold names from the fashion and art worlds descend on Hollywood as do the usual entertainment and movie names; a departure from the other awards shows like the Golden Globes or the Emmys where it’s always the industry crowd. This list doesnt include every single party this week … just the ones we heart.

Annual 4th of July Party List 2012 (Los Angeles)

xoxo From the Colony …

The 4th of July in Malibu always brings out the usual suspects for the annual line up of parties from financier billionaire brothers, to local real estate moguls, to owners of sports teams with wide networks of friends. Once again the Malibu Colony succeeded in raising the total amount of the fireworks show cost that was historically financed single-handedly by resident Jerry Perenchio. A cute thermometer sign for the annual fireworks fund has been at the colony guard gates for weeks encouraging neighbors to contribute as they pass through the entrance to their Malibu beach houses. Everyone who was at a Malibu party this weekend, should try to contribute next year to keep this tradition alive. Call the guard gate for instructions on how to do so. Most residents, even the summer renters, contribute anywhere between $500 to $5000. Long time L.A. fireworks company PyroSpectacular once again sent out pyrotechnician Mike Crow to drive out the barge from the port of Long Beach to Malibu, and run the show (all done on a control board — pictured below) to make the “ground tremble and quake — with love”, as Mike added.

Parties in Malibu at several houses up and down the Malibu Colony, and Broad Beach include those of Alec Gores, Steve Tisch,  Gary Winnick, Ron Meyers, Tom Gores, Don Sterling, and Jason Statham who we hear is renting this summer in the Colony. All of which followed Rande Gerber and Cindy Crawford’s pre 4th of July party at Café Habana in the Lumber Yard in Malibu the day before.

Other shows of note around town:

Brentwood Country Club on San Vicente Boulevard near Bundy has a fireworks show for its members ($60 per person) on the golf course, and can be seen from outside the club. Same goes for Hilcrest Country Club in Beverly Hills.

The Playboy Mansion has an annual fireworks show on Charing Cross Road south of Sunset Boulevard.

Mulholland Estates come to life for an over all city view, including those from the Hollywood Bowl. Those with large houses along Mulholland use the 4th of July as an opportunity to invite over everyone they for the city panarama.

Also of note, Palisades annual 4th of July parade is apparently world famous, Calablackless also had a good show — and our friends threw a fun party at the Roosevelt too.

Here is who you have to thank for your Malibu fireworks — Pyro Mike Crow runs the Malibu Colony fireworks show from the barge
