Hollywood may expand popular food truck gathering

Hollywood & Mine News from Tinseltown

Every Monday, more than 20 food trucks roll into Hollywood's ArtsPark at Young Circle, selling everything from shrimp tacos to gourmet cake pops. The weekly event has taken off since its debut in August 2011, drawing hundreds of food truck fans from all over South Florida. This week, Commissioner Peter Hernandez said he has a plan that might encourage even more people to meander through downtown, stopping at the local bars, restaurants and shops. He'd like to see six food trucks selling their gourmet creations at nearby Anniversary Park, two blocks west of Young Circle on Hollywood Boulevard.

And at that time I had nothing to do, standing there looking around," he said. "During all those years I dreamed. Slowly, slowly, I got there," the actor said. Chan has become one of China's biggest film stars, crossing into Hollywood movies with his Kung Fu fighting skills and ability to do his own action stunts.

Crowds sample dishes from more than 20 gourmet food trucks at Young Circle in Hollywood. The event is held every Monday from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Huawei, probably better known as a leading telecoms gear maker under fire from US politicians over its potential links to the Chinese state, is looking to drive sales of its consumer devices, but is hobbled by not having effective consumer retail channels. Traditionally, it co-brands its devices with carriers. In an interview on Friday, Guo told Reuters he sees this changing as Huawei shifts from focusing on the technology in its devices to better understanding consumers' tastes and perceptions. "In some ways, (designing) a smartphone is in the middle of Silicon Valley and Hollywood," he said. "Silicon Valley represents technology - and smartphones need strong technology - and the Hollywood aspect is about experience and perception." (Continued)

Huawei phones: Hollywood meets Silicon Valley

But Esther Williams, who died at 91 this week, was so, well, vivid and so legendary, so good humored and honest she easily qualifies in that airy realm of being permanently imprinted in my memory.  Oddly enough I was never a fan of Williams? lavish Technicolor swimming spectacles, the movies that made her an enduring global star from the 1940s until today.  In fact I?d never seen most of them.  But I knew from research they were incredibly popular, not just in the USA but in Asia, South America, where they continued to play for decades. When i first met and interviewed Williams nearly 20 years ago, it was a few years before her 1999 autobiography, the bestselling tell-it-like-it-was THE MILLION DOLLAR MERMAID where she laughed off the notion of sexual harrasment and suggested that macho '50s movie costar Jeff Chandler was secretly a drag queen.  We met at the Ivy, the fashionable West Hollywood restaurant.  Williams made a suitable movie star entrace, driving herself to the valet in a huge ?70s gold Rolls that resembled an armored truck.  ?It was Fernando?s, he always liked it,? she said almost apologetically, referring to her long-gone husband Fernando Lamas who had died in 1982.  We lunched on the outdoor terrace and as we were talking, a mild earthquake hit. The dishes on the Ivy walls rattled and everyone was suddenly silent.  Then with a big smile, Williams leaned over to me, took my hand and said, ?Was it as good for you as it was for me?? I left that lunch knowing that the one thing Williams resented the most was the ?betrayal? of her fellow actors by Ronald Reagan who in line with his agent, the powerful Lew Wasserman, had agreed as head of the Screen Actors Guild in the late '50s to mark 1950 as the arbitrary line for residual payments.  All movies made before 1950 which included many Williams hits would generate no income for stars like Judy Garland, Mickey Rooney, Van Johnson and so many others. ?I want to be able to see my movies on Turner Classic Movies and know I?m getting paid for them,? she declared.
