Lunch With Olivia Newton-John!

Actually, our waiter told us on the QT that Olivia Newton-John was dining a couple tables away from us yesterday when I met two friends for lunch at Lon's at the Hermosa Inn. I have loved Olivia ever since her "let's get physical phase" and all I can say is that time should be that kind to all of us. We didn't disturb her for an autograph but did pass her table several times just to be sure it was her!
Lon's and the Hermosa are "must-do's" on the Phoenix historical and culinary trail. It was the third in a series of visits we decided to make this year to fabulous resorts in our own backyard. Our first two stops were to Rita's Kitchen at The Camelback Resort and T. Cook's at The Royal Palm. Our crowd size varies with more ladies in attendance during the cooler-weather months and this lunch found just three of us and.... Olivia Newton-John according to our waiter.

The Hermosa is a wonderful Old Phoenix place, much more comfortable than some of its over-the-top cousins. Interspersed among lovely little casitas are fantastic art works, some by the original owner, Lon Margargee, and a newly-acquired collection featuring sculpture of Native American artist Allan Houser.

Here's just sample of the Hermosa Inn art:

And what would a girl day be without shopping? When I saw my friend Janet in these sandals, I just knew I needed a pair too.
Shopping: End to a Perfect Afternoon!

Hi Paula,
Lunch with Olivia Newton John how wonderful, even if you were a few tables over. This place sound like a nice place to go with the girls and have a few cocktails and a nice meal and just talk, laugh and have a nice time. I love the flip flops.
