Dinner at the Governors Ball

Dinner at the Governors Ball

Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell sporting their newly minted Emmy Awards dined on a lavish dinner from Patina Restaurant’s Joachim Splichal. The Governors Ball was the place to be last night following the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards.  The cavernous Los Angeles Convention Center across from the Nokia Theatre was transformed into a black and white playground for celebrity A Listers.   Mimes dressed in black and white checkerboard and striped tights lined the walkway into the event.  Cirque acrobats hung from fabric draped from the ceiling.

Table view 9-11The tables and chairs were decked out with black and white striped stretch coverings and were set with a variety of black and white place settings.   The menu prepared by Joachim Splichal and staff of Patina deserved its own award.  Spectacular on the plate, delicious in the mouth and attentive service to over 3800 people.
