Chef Francois was with Ingrid’s Café, also known as Ingrid’s Bistro, for only two months. He was hired after answering an advertisement posted on kijiji-Los Angeles and his last day was January 29, 2011. As always, firm owners, management and the public relations firm wish him the best of luck.


Many loyal fans may wonder what will happen to the exclusive, fantastic, exquisite food at Ingrid’s Café. Well, sometimes the owner must wear multiple hats and that’s the response we have received from Ingrid. She has worn two hats in the past, as the owner and chef. Because of the current situation, the owner/chef Ingrid will take over again and will give you, the customer, some of the best exclusive flavor, taste and love to enjoy.
Per Ms. Bedrosian, Chef Francois’ departure will not in any way or shape affect restaurant operations because the menu was created by Ingrid and there will be even more exciting items introduced very soon.

“Our restaurant currently serves authentic and gourmet Mediterranean cuisine with a touch of French in a casual bistro setting. Our carefully crafted menu, extensive wine selection, impeccable service, and elegant, yet cozy, atmosphere brings the best of Euro/Mediterranean to your dining experience. Our constantly-evolving menu is based on the freshest and organic ingredients available, yet we make sure to offer the favorites that our patrons have been enjoying for years.” Said Ingrid Bedrosian, Owner/Chef.

As of now, Ingrid’s Café/Bistro Owner may consider hiring a new chef, but hopes to find someone like herself who truly enjoys cooking and can introduce new elegant dishes. Until then, she will take over for you to continue enjoying the best of Ingrids/Bistro Café Beverly Hills.

Her joy of cooking and baking for others is unlimited and you can taste the labor of love in every bite. All products are fresh and organic and arranged very elegantly.

In the fall of 2010, it was decided to introduce new menu, new hours and much more European and Mediterranean food with a French flair. This change was long overdue and was requested by many of the guests, hotels and local businesses. Their great advice was taken, and Ingrid’s opened for lunch and dinner. Ingrid’s also offers a very minimum corkage charge if you want to bring your own wine bottle. You will also be visited by a very nice and professional bartender for cocktail drinks.

2011 Honda Los Angeles Marathon presented by K‐Swiss on March 20th

February 6, 2011 by  
Filed under Community, Featured, News, Uncategorized

LA Marathon 2011The 26th running of the Honda LA Marathon presented by K‐Swiss will take place on Sunday, March 20, 2011 on the nation’s most dramatic marathon course, from Dodger Stadium to the Pacific Ocean.
Wireless from AT&T
A visit to Los Angeles often includes landmarks such as Dodger Stadium, Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood, the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills and the beaches in Santa Monica for a dip in the Pacific Ocean.
Imagine seeing them all . . . without a single car in front of you! It’s possible only for participants in the 26th Honda LA Marathon presented by K-Swiss on March 20, 2011.


“The morning was perfect,” said 2010 runner-up Richard Limo of Kenya, who made his firstever visit to Los Angeles for the race last year. “The run to the sea was great. Mile 24 [on San Vicente Boulevard] was a great place to see balloons and flowers and the breeze from the ocean was really great.”
Although the race has been among the top-ten marathons in the world since its inception in 1986, the new Stadium to the Sea course – from Dodger Stadium to Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica – helped to set a new record of 26,054 registrants for the 2010 race. And registrations are coming in briskly for 2011.
“There will be no race-day registration for the Honda LA Marathon in 2011,” noted LA MARATHON LLC Chief Operating Officer Nick Curl. “We had to cut off registration early last year and we’re asking people to register now and not be disappointed at the last minute.”
Race registration is easy and takes only minutes on the race Web site, www.LAMarathon.com.


Out-of-town runners are being welcomed with excellent hotel options, either close to the start in downtown Los Angeles, or close to the finish in Santa Monica, Venice and Marina del Rey, beginning at $99 per night (plus applicable taxes). A menu of five downtown hotels and 18 Santa Monica-area properties is available through the “Travel” section of the Marathon Web
LadyFootlocker.com
site, with full details on pricing and complimentary raceday transportation options from both areas to the start at Dodger Stadium, and from the finish in Santa Monica back to the official downtown hotels.
All runners receive a specially-prepared “technical shirt” for raceday, with a specially-struck commemorative medal waiting at the finish line, and a finisher’s certificate which can be retrieved electronically after the race results are certified.
Champs Sports (Footlocker.com, Inc.)
Looking back on the record-setting 2010 race, many of the runners agreed with women’s runner-up Teyba Naser of Ethiopia that “I enjoyed the course, especially the scene as we approached the finish area at the beach.” The same excitement awaits those who register in time to be included in the 2011 edition on March 20.

The race records are 2:08:24 for men (Wesley Korir of Kenya in 2009) and 2:25:39 for women  (Tatiana Petrova of Russia in 2009).

Mark ValinskyOnce while talking with Tom Cruise, Tom asked Mark why he would give up being a successful doctor and switch careers to act and produce, Mark’s answer to Tom, “You’re having too much fun without me”.

With a great respect for classic Hollywood Mark is interested in all aspects of the film and television industry. Mark brings to the entertainment field a certain degree of professionalism and determination along with a good mixture of mid west friendliness, dependability and ethics combined with a proper dose of East Coast aggressiveness, plus a natural pursuit of determined excellence to get things done.


Because of their accomplishments in many fields, Mark points out his respect and admiration for people like Clint Eastwood well known and respected for his many diverse talents – politician, composer, musician, film director, producer, and actor.

Mark has initiated Valinsky Media Group http://www.ValinskyMediaGroup.com who has a number of divisions integrated in performing professional services in Public Relations and Marketingfor select clients, involved in the Entertainment Business as well as the financing and production of films.”

While many believe a secret to success is to do one thing well, Mark Valinsky feels you can also be successful by doing the many things you are passionate about and doing them well. The statement “A jack of all trades, a master of none.” really doesn’t always apply, nor should it.

Mark Valinsky at the Golden Globes Awards

 

He uses a few examples and states: “Can you imagine what would have happened if someone convinced Leonardo di Vinci that “Leonardo, maybe you should just paint and forgot about all these other crazy ideas that pop into your head.”

Or to Thomas Edison, considered one of the most prolific inventors in history, holding 1,093 US patents in his name, “You know Tom, the phonograph was enough.” Or to Clint Eastwood; “Clint I like your acting, Why don’t you forget about your production company, music composing and directing? You’ll never win an Academy Award if you try too many things.”

Out of the Transylvania Night Official Book Release at Barnes & Noble & Review

October 26, 2010 by  
Filed under Entertainment, Events, Featured

On Saturday, October 23, 2010 from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm Bettie Youngs Books Publishing Company held “Out of the Transylvania Night: A Story of Tyranny, Freedom, Love and Identity”, This was the Official Book Signing at the famous Barnes and Noble in the Miracle Mile area in Los Angeles, CA.


“I think that people create stories with their well-crafted words, but also stories create people. I felt that my plight, my struggles, and my achievements have created emotional bridges with so many of my fans and friends and with new people I never met before. The book signing at Barnes and Noble, at The Grove, on Oct 23, 2010 was a success due to my amazing core of good souls who have been following me and treasuring me for who I am in reality. Thanks to William Brown and Bettie B. Youngs, the orchestrators of my book signing and to my audience, the message was spread and hearts were touched. I was humbled by the number of guests who showed up, and I was more than honored to have had so many fans to deliver my message to.” Said Aura Imbarus, Author, PhD and Educator.
Send Flowers...Just Because from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM! (Same-Day Delivery Available)
“Out of the Transylvania Night”, the book written by Author, PhD and Educator Aura Imbarus, shows lots of courage, independence, will, dreams and freedom. Living in a communist country is not easy because you feel scared of your own birth soil. It is hard to believe that in Romania, a country in eastern Europe, people lost their freedom and dreams. I can relate to the author because my country also was run during a time where gun shots, protests and people were forced to join the communist party. So like in Romania and my country, citizens needed to think of ways to escape from the nightmare and run away to a better life in another country, This wasn’t easy, because in a new country you have other issues, like how to adjust to the lifestyle, the new language, culture, laws, and everything else a foreigner has to learn.

“Sometimes things are better untold, but in that case nobody is going to know what happened, why, and what for. My life story gives people and inside peak into the world of communism, so-called equality, while opening up the eyes of the ones who have never lived under dictatorship. It is never too late to call a spade a spade. We all have a past, and our present lies on it: good or bad it is what it is and hopefully we learned from it, and we will not repeat the same mistakes. People need to be exposed to the ups and downs of the American Dream, to its sacrifices, to the world of immigration, to stringent women empowerment issues, to the cruel world of cancer and a passive world that is not doing much to cure so much suffering. My book is an eye opener for the ones who want to see, for the ones who want to listen to the voice of an immigrant, who started with two pieces of luggage and a huge dream.” Ms. Imbarus concluded.

Switch to Allstate and Save!

It is very good to see that author Aura Imbarus did have lots of courage to accomplish her goals in her country and move on to a unknown country where she was thinking that the American Dream would be easily accomplished. But when she dreamed about the USA and the beautiful life, she was in for a big disappointment. Lots of people in foreign countries think that by moving to the USA, life will be so glamorous and magical. However, the real truth and reality is that it is not easy.  Like author Aura Imbarus, foreigners with high education have to start from the bottom and take about 3 to 4 jobs to be able to pay their rent, medical insurance, transportation, car payment, car insurance, food, bills and other daily necessities in the USA. So, she did not have time to enjoy her life because she had to work hard for long hours to pay for her living expenses. Sadly, that is the life here in the USA.  If you’re thinking that you will have a great life in the USA, think twice because the only way you can have the great, magical and glamorous life is to come with money or have a good paying job. The cost of living here in the USA, particularly areas like Los Angeles, New York, and Miami is sky high. Many people need to have more than two jobs just to make end meet.


Thanks to technology and the internet, now people can see the dark side of the other countries and the difficulties of starting over in new countries like the USA. Author Aura Imbarus is contributing to our society by letting you open your eyes and sharing her true story in her book “Out of the Transylvania Night”, from leaving her nightmare country to the big disappointments since arriving on American soil.

Reading “Out of the Transylvania Night” is something that you need to do.  Many immigrants here in the USA have come to this country for many reasons. Some came because when they were in their country they would see their neighbors receiving goods and money from their USA relatives. They did have any idea of how hard those people were working here in the USA and how difficult it was to learn the system.

Some book authors out there really share the truth like Aura Imbarus of “Out of the Transylvania Night”. Others don’t and they have their reasons. Some are creative and they are making a living by writing books, but every author is different. The one that is really getting a big slice of the cake is the book publisher because the author/writer gets a percentage and has to wait for about a year before they see some earnings of so many hours of hard work in promoting and making appearances to get the word out about their art.

“Out of the Transylvania Night” event was hosted and held at Barnes & Noble, at The Grove by the Farmers Market located at 189 Grove Drive Suite K 30 in Los Angeles, CA 90036.



Per event organizers around 128 people showed up on a capricious weather, beating the raindrops and the LA traffic. Many thanks to all the ones who showed their support for the Pulitzer Prize entry memoir “Out of the Transylvania Night.” The book is available at B&N, at The Grove, and on line on Amazon.com, right in time for the holidays.
