California Pizza Kitchen Sunset - New Lucky Location Is Sure To Be A Success

A beautiful restaurant

California Pizza Kitchen on Sunset was the place to be on Tuesday for their event 'A New Look on Sunset,' celebrating the premiere of their new branch on Sunset and Cresent Heights. Sponsored in part by Los Angeles Magazine and APLA.  The evening featured live entertainment, as well as CPK's beloved pizzas, pastas, salads, new specialty cocktails, beer, wine, and dessert.

Yum, Yum...

The new CPK was built in a location that is sure to bring it luck. The former Schwabs drugstore that used to be in its place brought luck to famous actress Lana Turner who was discovered there on a soda fountain stool many years ago. Based on the turnout for this lavish opening, the same fate surely awaits the famous pizzeria.

Non stop buffet

The kind folks at CPK were not outdone when it came to arranging a terrific buffet. Long tables were heavy with delicious assortments of salads, noodles, amazing deserts and of course- pizza, of which there were at least 6 different varieties. 

More food than you could eat!

Guests couldn't believe their eyes or stomachs asa they loaded their plates and went back for seconds and thirds.

Friendly waiters taking care of lovely customers

The waitstaff were friendly, efficient, and created the perfect atmosphere for a great night.

Attempting to quiet the alarm

Even the unintended firedrill was attended to with haste and grace and barely disrupted the good time.

When guests weren't focused on their plates, they were gazing around the room at the number of celebrity guests that made appearances. Such famous faces included STAR98 personality Lisa Foxx, who acted as celebrity bartender for the event.  Also in attendance were: Megan Mullally, Lisa Ann Walter, Andrew Dice Clay, Bobby Lee, Kenny Johnson, Clement von Franckenstien, Lorenzo Lamas, Barry Williams, Steve Hytner, Gabrielle Carteris, Maz Jabroni, Drew Tyler, Eric Winter, Tommy Davidson, Dr. Randal Hayworth,Thad Luckinvill, Greg Rikaart, Kyle Brandt, Ashley Benson, Kirstin Storms,Heather Lindell, Martha Madison, Eduardo De La Renta, Jason Graham, Raul Julia-Levy, Alan Ray, Phoebe Price, and Patrick Kilpatrick.

Must call home to get folks here!

The event wasn't all about food though;  CPK observes a time honored tradition of supporting worth while charitable  organizations in the communities in which it does business.  Not only did this celebration highlight and honor the work of AIDS PROJECT LOS ANGELES, CPK will also donate 100% of pizza sales to the organization from Monday, July 11 until Friday, July 15, 2005.

CPK's premiere party was truly en event to remember. It stimulated our hearts as well as taste buds and will not be forgotten anytime soon. All the best to CPK in their new location, and may the luck of Lana Turner rub off on them!


And the band played on...
