“Extradorinary” Shout Out for the New Caulfield’s, Yours Truly in THR

A great plug for my second book and upcoming party in this week's The Hollywood Reporter. "Where the Young Turks Go To Drink," is a two-page feature by Alexis Johnson and Degen Penner spotlighting the new wave of hangouts caterting to the entertainment industry's rising power players.

From the story:

Another hotel is getting a hip reboot. The Thompson Beverly Hills (9360 Wilshire Blvd.), which shut down its BondSt restaurant last year, is reopening the space as a 125-seat bistro called CAULFIELD’S. The first event is a private book party Nov. 9 for fashion writer Rose Apodaca’s biography Fred Hayman: The Extraordinary Difference, hosted by Oscar-nominated costume designer Arianne Phillips (Walk the Line) and fashion designer Jeremy Scott. We hear that the management, which poached a VIP ambassador from the Standard Hotels, is consciously going after Soho House’s young creatives crowd and planning to open a second-floor lounge as well.

I'm absolutely honored that Caulfield's owners Ron Marino and Laurie Mulstay are rolling out the carpet in celebration of my book (Fred Hayman – The Extraordinary Difference) with next Wednesday's party. The pair are also behind bar Chloe in Santa Monica and Magnolia in Hollywood.

The name of this latest place is a nod to the protagonist in Catcher in the Rye, and the gem in the space is a mural with the faces of the blacklisted writers. Such amazing company.
