Power Lunch Rush with the Junior Hollywood Radio & Television Society

UTA Valet Station at Power Lunch Rush with JHRTSIf you’re a viewer of the HBO show “Entourage,” you might have some appreciation for the life of a Hollywood assistant.  On that show, the character Lloyd toils away as an assistant for years before finally working his way up to become a talent agent.  Being an assistant is a rite of passage through which all entertainment executives must navigate before they can make their mark on the industry.

I was a Hollywood assistant myself before moving into the automotive industry, and I know Los Angeles is full of real-life Lloyds – young professionals who work long hours and carry notoriously heavy workloads to ensure the wheels of the entertainment industry keep spinning  (to use a car-related metaphor).  

Last week, we teamed up with the Junior Hollywood Radio & Television Society and United Talent Agency to take a few members of this hard-working group for a spin and a relaxing lunch break away from their busy desks.

JHRTS invited its UTA members to take a much-deserved mid-day break, and participants piled into our Chevy Camaro, Buick Enclave, GMC Terrain and Cadillac CTS vehicles for a chauffeured ride to a serene poolside “lunch rush” at the chic Avalon Hotel in Beverly Hills.

We enjoyed the good eats and great conversation (as well as sugar-coma-inducing Crumbs cupcakes), and – in an “only in LA” moment – Paris Hilton happened to be at the Avalon shooting her new reality show while we lunched!

Thanks to the Junior Hollywood Radio & Television Society for hosting us!
