Yesterday Chateau Marmont's patio was busy. You had Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson at lunch and you had Courteney Cox and a guy in a suit at night sipping on martinis. No pictures of the couple. Let me tell you a little something about the patio at Chateau Marmont. You can look at your cell phone, but the second you hold it up like you are going to take a photo someone will appear out of nowhere and tell you that no photos are allowed, and then ask if they can get you another $18 drink. Sure, you can be sneaky, but it can be tough to be sneaky and aim your phone in the right direction and still get a shot. I used to drink martinis a lot. I stopped though about the same time I realized I always ended up drinking them in two swallows. It is the design of the glass. I thought about asking them to be served in a highball glass, but then people ask you what you are drinking and you say a martini and then ask how come it is not in a martini glass and so at some point you get tired of telling the tale and order something different. Courteney and her guy stayed until midnight which is a pretty late night for her.
