Poster for Malibu Calabasas Food Wine FestivalWhy a Private Tour in Calabasas

We’ve written here about Dash and the Los Angeles Memorial Pet Cemetery and now we want to get you to Calabasas for the 7th Annual Calabasas Malibu Wine & Food Festival.  Set aside either Friday June 21st or Saturday June 22nd for a very special evening.  Held atop the Mercedes-Benz dealership you will enjoy the opportunity to drink local wine, beer and spirits as well as taste local food from dozens of participating wineries, breweries and restaurants.  Too many fine businesses to list here so click this link to see for yourself all the fine choices and samples you will have available on either of the two evenings of the festival.Photo of wine being poured at Calabasas Malibu Wine & Food Festival

Visitors asking us for suggestions for their private Los Angeles tour will certainly hear us suggest heading up to Calabasas, perhaps exploring a Malibu canyon road and Mulholland Drive, and arriving at the festival in time for dinner.

Where Hollywood Pets Rest in Peace

A Different Kind of Cemetery on a Private Custom Tour

Our regular readers know that we often take our private Los Angeles tour guests to visit any of several beautiful, historic and famous memorial parks around Hollywood and Beverly Hills.  A little farther away is Calabasas where we occasionally find ourselves with a more adventurous group aboard one of our luxury vehicles.  And it is in Calabasas that we can park and walk in a serene and wondrous park that is the final resting place of Los Angeles’ beloved pets, the Los Angeles Pet Memorial Park.  Since 1928 these hallowed grounds have brought loving families to spend time with the animals that comforted them in life.  The 10-acre park has a wild history and some very interesting residents.  Many movie stars and entertainment industry luminaries have interred their sweet pets up here.  Among them — Ruldolph Valentino, Charlie Chaplin, Steven Spielberg, Humphrey Bogart, Mae West and Bob Newhart.  And not just dogs and cats.  Tonto’s horse Trigger and Tawny the Lion (buried with her cat pal) are there, too.  This is a unique sightseeing destination for anyone and everyone.
