Just 11 days till our first HUGE party and I am beyond excited! Cue up 24 hours to go by the Ramones, though maybe something from DJ Redfoo might be more appropriate since he’ll be there playing music.

Talk about an adrenaline rush. I am humbled and honored that Figue will be the host of the After Party of Desert Smash, a star-studded affair where pro tennis and Hollywood collides with players such as Novak Djokovic, Maria Sharapova, Andre Agassi, and stars including Gavin Rossdale, Gwen Stefani, Christian Slater and Joe Pesci to raise money for Children’s charities. What a way to kick off our Restaurant opening!!

I am absolutely honored and floored that Celebrity Chef Beau Macmillan may make an appearance and cook for the event as well! Beau Mac has been a friend for a long time and it always is an honor to cook with him.

Francois was Beau's mentor.......

I need clarification regarding report, "Missouri Dems Introduce Legislation to Confiscate Firearms".

I have a lifelong friend with whom I often disagree...especially about politics. This article was posted on his Facebook wherein I was the primary addressee...

He posted with link to:


.............This one is for "Farpoint". How many times did I see you post--"Their not coming for your guns." Incrementalism. These tyrannical Democrats will ultimately be unsuccessful; I still feel there is belief in the Constitution left in the hearts of men in our judicial system. The mere fact that these bums are even considering it, is enough that they should be kicked out of office.

I never heard of this website either....I sense it may be satire but really don't know. I thought this forum would be a safe place to secure appropriate feedback and discussion so that I can set the record straight with my friend....who has drank a lot of koolaide. He is also an Air Force War Veteran.

Voter Empowerment Act Introduced in Congress


Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Reps. John Lewis (D-Ga.), James Clyburn (D-S.C.), and Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) introduced tandem legislation to update the nation’s antiquated voting systems.

The bills launched last week on the 49th anniversary of the 24th Amendment, which eliminated the poll tax. They closely follow the Brennan Center’s longstanding recommendations for voting reform.

“The ramshackle voter registration system is a prime cause of long lines and Election Day chaos. We have a chance to modernize our elections so that every eligible citizen is on the rolls, with lower costs and greater election security,” said Brennan Center President Michael Waldman. “On Election Day, President Obama said we need to fix this. Here’s how.” Read Waldman’s Reuters op-ed on the bill.

The Brennan Center also held a National Press Club briefing in Washington, D.C. with leading secretaries of state to discuss modernizing the voting system, including voter registration. Speakers included (from left) the Brennan Center’s Wendy Weiser, Hon. Ross Miller (D-Nev.), Campaign Legal Center’s Beverly Hudnut, Hon. Alvin Jaeger (R-N.D.), Hon. Kate Brown (D-Ore.), and Hon. Mark Ritchie (D-Minn.). Watch video here.
