Visiting Dublin, Belfast, and Scotland

Visiting Dublin, Belfast, and Scotland A few of us were fortunate recently in visiting Dublin, Belfast, and Scotland.  What a trip!  Because Glitterati Tours of Beverly Hills and L.A. thrives on outstanding customer service, we like to share the love when we experience it firsthand with other venues. Dublin We spent 3 nights in Dublin at the always amazing Westin.  This is our second visit to this hotel.  Not only is the staff fantastic, but the hotel is incredibly well centered.  One is directly across the street from Temple Bar.  It’s a lively street with our favorite watering hole, Gogarty’s.

Tam O’Shanter Restaurant and Walt Disney

The historic Tam O’Shanter Restaurant and Walt Disney go hand-in-hand.  After all, this legendary restaurant in the Atwater Village section of Los Angeles wasn’t too terribly far from the old original Disney Studio on Hyperion Avenue.  The Tam was where Walt and his talented team of animators, and eventually his Imagineers, could conduct business and enjoy the awesomeness that is Tam O’Shanter.  In fact, when pulling up to Tam, you can actually see an incredible resemblance to the cottage in the classic Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs. Recently, Glitterati Tours of Beverly Hills, had the pleasure of a private tour by the General Manager, John and a Disney expert.  What a treat.  They even shared stories of this wonderful

There’s no way to know what summer will bring? It has certainly been an erratic calendar since November.  Even this last month, we had the opposite in scheduling as March came in like a lamb and

It’s that time of year when actors and actresses survive on a lima bean per day to look their best for the Academy Awards and the many Oscar parties in Hollywood and Beverly Hills.  The actual ceremony is on Sunday, February 26, 2017, but look for events all week long.
