The first annual fashion show for Kenneth Barlis was held on August 30 at the Broadway Pier in Downtown San Diego. Lucky stinker that I am, I was lucky enough to be invited as a VIP! Born in the Phillipines, Kenneth immigrated to the US when he was 14, and graduated from his high school as valedictorian. Entering nursing school, Kenneth soon realized that his true calling was creating high fashion pieces, and he pursued his dream with gusto, culminating in a successful career as a fashion designer.
Yummy food provided by HS Catering.
I found this dish to be particularly inventive. Pot roast and mashed potatoes served in a cup! Perfect to put a new twist on a classic that is served on a plate. This presentation made something that is typically eaten sitting down at a table accessible to be eaten standing and walking at a cocktail party setting. Brilliant! Very tasty as well.
A DJ entertained the crowd with plenty of great music.
Cake bites provided by Nothing Bundt Cakes.
