Cookie Good, a Santa Monica gourmet bakery opened by husband-and-wife team Ross and Melanie Canter, has become a favorite sweets caterer for local movie studios, talent agencies, game developers and tech companies. Cookies, bars and brownies—including gluten-free options—are offered in 100 rotating flavors, from Caramel Pretzel Chocolate Chunk (the most popular) to Pancakes & Bacon. Labels and flavors can be customized and the sprinkle colors of the Birthday Cake Cookie personalized to match a company logo.

Cookie Good has wrapped cookies with custom logo labels for Hula, Facebook, Microsoft, Pixar and Sony, among others. They created a new flavor for Bad Robot Productions, the company co-owned by J.J. Abrams that’s behind hits like “Alias,” “Lost,” “Westworld” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” A spin-off of its red velvet cookie, it has dark chocolate chips, Heath Bar bits and M&M “eyes” that match the robot logo. 

 A pioneer in community drumming demonstrates that rhythm is the key to corporate team-building.

 

On June 21, the MPI Southern California Chapter marked its 40th anniversary as members gathered for their annual installation gala at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills. After a welcome reception in the Wetherly Garden, where cocktails were hosted by Mulholland Distilling and sparkling wine by South Coast Winery, guests moved into the ballroom for the awards program and dinner and the swearing in of the 2018-19 Board of Directors. The evening concluded with a lavish dessert reception in the Orchid Room.
