Coincidentally, the twice-a-year special Affaire in the Gardens Art Show is being held this weekend at downtown Beverly Hills Park. This Cabrio allows us to soak smell of foods, colorful sight of sculptures and paintings, and sound of jazz ensemble as we are driving slowly towards the iconic Beverly Hills City Hall and Police Station. Anyone who saw Beverly Hills Cop movie will immediately recognize the Italian Renaissance tower featuring intricate carvings and mosaic dome. The golden crown above the dome shines brightly against a slightly cloudy sky.

The about-three-block stretch of Rodeo Drive between Wilshire Boulevard and US 66 / Santa Monica Boulevard glitters with high-end international brand shops; Bvlgari, Chanel, Ferragamo Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Porsche Design, and Versace, just to name a few. Not only locals and tourists come here, but also many movie and television stars visit this place regularly to shop and dine.

We decide to cruise this famous strip. Rodeo Drive is a large outdoor catwalk. Many people dress to be seen and they strut in and out of boutiques looking for the latest and greatest designs in fashion. This is where rarity is the norm. Most limited production cars can be seen driving by this strip. In a few minutes we are on the strip, we see several Aston Martin’s, Audi R8’s, Bentley’s, Ferrari’s, and Maserati’s. To top that, we also see a very rare custom painted Bugatti Veyron...@driving-vacation
