It's crazy how it happened really.
It all started at the Jonathan Gold's Zocalo Cocktail Party Fundraiser that I couldn't even afford to go to.
Apparently, someone had brought me up in a conversation the lovely Dana Goodyear was engaged in...and that was that.
The next day we had lunch at Battambang and were talking just how much the Gold meister has influenced and helped my life since I was 16, singlehandedly trailing his every S.G.V find through my high school years while my classmates sufficed for the local burger hut.
I guess things really do happen for a reason...
