I was recently invited to come and join the Fiat team for the unveiling of their new 2016 Fiat 500X. In Beverly Hills we were treated to rooms at the appropriately Italian themed Hotel, Mr C. Along with some wining and dining, the press managed to take quite a drive through the hills of Malibu.
Every year there’s at least one good reason to go down to the lovely city of Long Beach. I am of course talking about the annual Toyota Grand Prix. A week long event that includes seven different races, each more spectacular than the last.
Toyota had constructed a short off road course where we could all experience the new TRDPro family. The showman of the hour was one Andy Bell, an experienced Motocross racer and Guiness World Record holder.
Sometimes we get put into situations where we have to make a choice. You don’t like these situations typically, but they do happen. Occasionally though, in spite of the awkwardness and poor timing, you feel like taking a chance.
Normally I wouldn’t stay at The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, California. Why? Well basically because it’s pretty damn pricey. The rooms are huge, the restaurants are amazing, there’s a giant infinity pool and an award winning spa.
Fraternities seem to be a great source of inspiration for movie-makers. I will casually site, Old School, Animal House and Revenge of the Nerd (all of them). In Neighbors, however, it appears we may be rooting for the other team.
