Outstanding In The Field: Prius in Malibu- 10.11.10

outstandingpriusMAIN.jpg Happy 10th Anniversary, Prius! As you saw in my “day in my life through pics” post of the 8 hour event yesterday Prius threw in Malibu’s Wright Organic Resource Center… the Outstanding In The Field dinner was an incredible site to behold ~ not to mention feast to enjoy! So as promised, here’s a closer look at the meal itself ~ from preparation to table design to the fun of the dinner itself! And of course… more looks at the dinner from afar as the sun set… it was just bubbling with everyone’s excited energy and conversation! Not to mention the wine that kept flowing courtesy of Whole Foods too! (Though half the group probably couldn’t drink, needing to navigate the way out of the twisty s-curves of the canyon!) So take a look at our Prius 10th Anniversary Outstanding In The Field dinner on the next page! Bon Appetit!

The tables were literally glowing in the light! outstandingprius16.jpg

See how lovely each table was? outstandingprius26.jpg

And the whole spiral… outstandingprius29.jpg

And when i ducked up under the table to get out from within the spiral… and wandered up the hill i the dark! Look at the glow of that last bit of sunset ~ and sparking moon and stars… over this surreal spiral of a few hundred person dinner?!?!?! outstandingprius30.jpg

2 Notes

OSITF was in Texas a few years back, tickets sold out before I could get them. Although expensive, their dinners are a once in a lifetime event.

Outstanding! This looks so perfect and delicious. I wished I could have been there. You’re doing some outstanding things right now. But you’re not in China next week, are you? If so, please tell me. I will be there with Mercedes.
