Bars & Nightlife: LA.com reports on a shake-up at SBE that has several top people leaving the company. VIP Liaison Daniela Danilovic and Restaurant Group President Reza Roohi are both leaving the company, within days of each other, under suspicious circumstances. Perhaps Brent Bolthouse made them fetch his tuna on whole wheat sandwich one too many times. In related news, LA.com also reports The Hills: Season 2 is filming. Good god, help us all.
Retail: UK supermarket giant Tesco has yet to open its first store in Los Angeles, yet it seems to already understand the market. Tesco has caused a mini-furor in the UK by offering the Peekaboo Pole Dancing kit in the children's toys & games section of its web site.
