If you are party planning for this time of year or for any kind of celebration, check out my top local Phoenix party rental picks.  I have put several to the test several times now for my son’s big graduation party, a few other events and most recently, my own 50th birthday bash.  I believe that these suggestions below are the best of the best and I even found a company that will rent you Moscow mule copper mugs and that was actually not an easy find!  Two weeks ago I blogged about the cool and chic cocktail truck that I rented called The Duke and The Duchess.

The Duke is Featured on Wedding Chicks!

I am thrilled to be a part of this stylish white and green wedding shoot featured on Wedding Chicks. Click HERE to see the full feature! 

It was a spectacular summer evening in Napa Valley with Audrey + John at their best - in love! This was a fun annual styled shoot with our favorite photographer, C.M. Elle Studios and wedding planner Roque Events

There was a rustic and charming sweetheart table with modern pieces from Bright Event Rentals just outside of the Duke truck. "Better Together" reads the chair backs as the couple shines in the sun. At each place setting were personalized and painted wooden menus by Laura Lambrix Designs. We can't forget these gorgeous napkins from La Tavola Linen.

Beauty by Gilda dolled up our model and LA Jo Studios did her hair. The sun was shining in Napa Valley and really made our white and green color choices pop!

Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams at The Quail

This was my first time attending Monterey car week and The Quail car show in Pebble Beach, CA… and I was not disappointed.  As the Louis Roederer Champagne truck, I was able to meet some amazing people, including Gregory Balough, their CEO.

I sat side by side with a $7 million dollar helicopter and caviar, not bad company, and served champagne to 3000 guests. While sipping Cristal and enjoying the finest caviar many said I was their favorite car at the show. It doesn’t hurt that the champagne was flowing.

This was one of my best days ever. I am liking this luxury life.

V Marketplace 25th Annual Vintage Car Show was a success

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending a vintage car show in Yountville for Father's Day.  My entire family was there celebrating, and dad in particular looked very dapper. Being surrounded by so many handsome vintage cars my age and older made my entire week.

I met many ladies and gentlemen who appreciated my history as a butcher truck in France. One lovely woman said that I was her favorite vintage car at the show. I would agree with her, however, I fell in love with a small cherry-red speed boat. I am handsome... but she was gorgeous.

Although I am best as a mobile bar, that day we served up some sweet gourmet Popsicles for The Pathway Home, a local charity benefiting our hardworking combat veterans who served in the Middle East. It was a pleasure.

Lastly, to all of those kind people that I met that day who have reached out.... I can't wait to make your upcoming parties amazing.




The Duke arrives in Yountville

After a long journey from Scottsdale, I have finally arrived in the Napa Valley.

Being a butcher truck in Burgundy France for most of my life, I traveled on many a small road and had forgotten how beautiful life was by a vineyard. Waking up to the unique smell of farmland and grapes makes me excited about my new life here in Yountville.

Look for me if you are in the Napa Valley area this summer. I am Citroen Grey and the most handsome Vintage Bar you will ever see.
