​Last evening's Bubble Q on the beach has everything a huge tropical soiree could ask for - good music, great food, stunning decor, champagne corks popping endlessly and celebs. A gigantic white chandelier was the focal point of the tent, under which handsome men in black with neon green ties poured overflowing glasses of Perrier-Joet. Celebrity chefs were stationed around the tent cooking savory dishes to pair with the champagne. The highlight of the evening, however, were the celebrities in the crowd. Guy Fieri, Giada De Laurentiis, Rick Bayless, Al Roker, Jonathan Waxman and host Bobby Flay were spotted. Just when we thought we had seen every celeb, Martha Stewart strolled in on her way to the Let Them Eat Cake party to sample some food. Just as Martha walked in the room, the band played the theme to 2001, A Space Odyssey. Coincidence? We don't think so.


Todd English had a line of admirers - all women.

Giada De Laurentiis and yours truly - blogger Laine Doss. Believe me, Giada is not the person you want your picture taken with - she is more beautiful in person than in pictures. Her husband insisted I jump in.

A human cupcake - cool or humiliating? You decide.
