THE PARTY Start your engines! The annual La Jolla Concours Tour d’Elegance offers more than just a meeting ground for motorheads—it’s a celebration of the luxe lifestyle that passengers of Mercedes, Bentleys and Bugattis love to lead. To kick off the annual event, guests like Peter Caruso and Valerie Cooper joined together at The Lot—La Jolla’s new movie theater-meets-dining destination—for the Rolls-Royce Contemporary Classic Cocktail Party debut. THE SCENE Inside the be-and-be-seen hub, partygoers were treated to a private scotch tasting by Glenfiddich, and noshed on smoked chicken and cheddar vol-au-vent; melted brie with figs atop pecan brioche; and a medly of minidesserts. THE HIGHLIGHTS In true Concourse fashion, the cars stole the show with colorful classics including the Dawn Convertible, one of the sexiest Rolls-Royces ever built. What’s more impressive, the evening’s proceeds benefited the Monarch School for Homeless Children and the La Jolla Historical Society. Now that’s going full throttle! –Photography by J Dixx
