“The Bachelor” Ben Flajnik’s Envolve Winery
Los Angeles, February 2nd, 2012
Last week I interviewed the owners of Sonoma County’s Envolve Winery who were in Los Angeles. They are three childhood friends: Danny Fay, Michael Bezinger, and Ben Flajnik, whom you may know better as The Bachelor on this season’s ABC television series. Intimidated a little by the thought of meeting Flajnik, I wanted to find a cool place that felt romantic and sexy. Hey, you never know; if by the season’s final episode, he had not found a future spouse, maybe I had a chance!
Immediately, Eric Greenspan’s new restaurant The Roof on Wilshire at The Hotel Wilshire came to my mind as a great spot to meet. Chef Greenspan kindly welcomed us. Thank you, Eric! But I’m still waiting to be asked out for a second date.
