At least everyone knows where SBE Group leader Sam Nazarian's political allegiance lies. Last night he hosted the front-runner Democratic presidential candidates at two of his West Hollywood hot spots: Sen. Hillary Clinton at the Abbey and Sen Barack Obama at Area. According to the Huffington Post:
The pair of parties, less than a mile apart, are scheduled to follow Thursday's presidential forum on GLBT issues hosted by the Human Rights Campaign and MTV's Logo network.Unless you're Sam Nazarian who owns most of the nightlife scene in LA, then there's little choice. Welcome to LA, politicos!
Two men, nightlife impresarios Sam Nazarian and David Cooley, are listed as hosts for both events.
