Kagan was awesome! Mega friendly dude who took the time to converse with everyone. It was pretty awesome to see the grandfather of MCM furniture design chillin' on a couch of his own design in a sweet pad like the Morelli house. http://lh3.google.com/jenniezane/R6NRfbHufJI/AAAAAAAAACU/CFKVABW0JTE/s1...

LV carpool to PS

We are going to head out on our own since we can only be there Saturday - Sunday. Thanks for the offer!

Do we know what planned group events are happening for Saturday and Sunday yet? Any news on the Saturday night party? We definitely want to do the bus tour on Sunday.

More Info:

Further update: The website for the architect is here: http://www.edvanceassociates.com/ The text in regards to the Moulin Rouge indicates a renovation of the existing 60-room hotel.
