Today’s Random Celebrity Sighting: Richard Simmons
It doesn’t get much more random than this!
Miss Florida USA Lissette Garcia (below) won the contest, snagging $1,000 for her favorite charity, the American Cancer Society, and a $1,000 shopping spree. But mostly that first thing.
The event was sponsored by a Miracle Mile footwear store, Chinese Laundry.
Bonus hula hoop trivia: The typical adult-sized hula hoop is 40 inches across.
What did we learn at this event? 1) Richard Simmons is hysterical in person. 2) This blog will find any excuse to attend events featuring 51 Miss USA contestants. 3) The list of things we learned is actually very short.
On a related note, we took full advantage of our visit to The Miracle Mile Shops by stopping at Halo Bar just outside the entrance to Planet Hollywood’s casino.
Our find at Halo? The strawberry daiquiri, which we now list among our favorite on the Strip.
We know, we should have listened to our own advice about preventing brain freezes, but it was just so darned succulent.
Oh, and we found something else nearby that looked potentially succulent.
This blog loves it some new. It definitely loves it some chocolate. And it definitely loves its gifts whimsical. So, this one looks like a winner. You saw it here first!
