BIZBASH — Vogue’s Director of Special Events Gives Planning Tips Ahead of Met Gala, LVMH to Launch Platform for Experiences, Inside Los Angeles’s Trendy Pan Am Dining Experience

By Ian Zelaya April 27, 2017 Original Story 1. ‘VOGUE’S DIRECTOR OF SPECIAL EVENTS GIVES PLANNING TIPS AHEAD OF MET GALA: Eaddy Kiernan, Vogue‘s director of special events, is the event-planning mastermind of the annual Met Gala, which takes place on Monday. Kiernan recently gave tips on hosting a Met Gala-worthy event. Vogue: “So what exactly does Kiernan recommend? ‘Dim the lighting, but not so much that people can’t see each other.

ADWEEK — Can L.A.’s Trendy Pan Am Dining Experience Make a Landing on the Las Vegas Strip?

By Robert Klara April 26, 2017 Original Story For the past three years, adventurous gourmands, wealthy eccentrics and Hollywood A-listers have clamored for seats in what just might be L.A.’s most exclusive restaurant.

JOHNNY JET — Relive the Golden Age of Travel With the Pan Am Experience in LA

By Johnny Jet April 25, 2017 Original Story A few years ago, I read about how an aviation geek (I’m one too) named Anthony Toth had created a mock of a Pan Am 747 in his garage in Redondo Beach, California, and was inviting his friends over for dinner to see it. Toth said he became obsessed with Pan Am at the age of five when his parents took him on his first 747 flight to see his grandparents. He slowly started collecting Pan Am memorabilia, and in his forties he bought the lower deck of a retired 747-100 aircraft from an airplane graveyard in the Mojave Desert. He then pimped it out to recreate the golden age of flying. […]

By Steve Przybilla April 24, 2017 Original Story Die legendäre Fluggesellschaft Pan Am lebt – in einer nachgebauten Boeing 747 in Los Angeles. Talaat Captan, Gründer von «Pan Am Experience», erklärt, warum seine Kunden mehrere hundert Dollar für etwas Nostalgie ausgeben. Um ein paar Stunden in einer nachgebauten Flugzeugkabine zu sitzen, geben Ihre Gäste bis zu 345 Dollar aus. Warum? Weil sie im Jahr 1970 sind, sobald sie unser Studio betreten. Die Uniformen, der Ticketschalter, die Sitze, die Bar – alles sieht exakt so aus wie in der goldenen Zeit des Fliegens. Sie steigen in unsere Boeing 747 ein, hören Frank Sinatra, essen ein edles Menu und können im Duty-free-Shop sogar die Parfums von damals kaufen. Darauf fahren die Leute besonders […]
