Club Copley's 'Nikki Beach Miami' Makes Quite a Splash in La Jolla!

More Social Diary Event Coverage ....HOME


Club Copley at David Copley's home Foxhill made quite the splash with Globe Theatre patrons July 23rd, 2012. Invites suggested dressing apropos to the famed Nikki Beach of Miami .... and most guests did to a 't.'

First, host and generous event underwriter David Copley welcomed guests.

Guests were then guided straight to 'Club Copley.' A magically transformed backyard paradise of sandy beach, cabana lounges, bar tables and DNA blessed servers.

Club Copley it was, in exquisite Nikki Beach style. Brick walkways were covered with white washed wood decking, green grass was replaced completely with pristine white sand (a Maggie approved 'sand box'), and leggy female models and muscled guys served up colorful libations like South Beach Cosmos and Tropical Mango Mojitos. A bountiful seafood buffet of succulent premium lobster, crab claws and jumbo shrimp were offered during the reception.

Among those there were Colette Carson Royston and Ivor Royston, Pam and Hal Fuson, Sheryl and Harvey White, Emma and Leo Zuckerman, Linda Amamouche and Andrew Shelton, Denise and Bertrand Hug, and Jeanne Jones and Don Breitenberg.

Don couldn't get enough of speaking with fellow guest and writer Mike Kramer.

More there included Lynne and Steven Wheeler, Royce and John Campbell, Jo Ann Kilty, Karen and Don Cohn, Karen Fox and Harvey Ruben, Pete Cooper and Norm Blachford, Mark Higginbotham and Harry Matheny, Valerie and Harry Cooper, Iris and Matthew Strauss, Pat and Bob Whalen, Ellen and Tim Zinn, and Rick Woods.

Rick Woods of Elegant Events Catering was the mastermind behind the stellar food. And there was plenty of food....

There were hot out of the oven gourmet pizzas, Island Style Kobe Beef Sliders, Julienne French Fries with White Truffle Oil, as well as the South Beach Salad Shack and the South Beach Grill. At the Grill there were St. Barth's Demi Poulet Grille with Lemon Thyme Au Jus, Fillet of Beef Tenderloin with Port Reduction and Creamed Horseradish, and a plethora of Grilled Chino Vegetables with Chipotle Crema Dip.

Cafe Japengo was on hand at the sushi buffet. They also did the sushi boats on each dinner table pool side. Au fin du diner, a 'model' parade came replete with a 'ginormous' Methusela of Cristal and many Magnum flower bottles of Perrier Jouet.

The bubbles went well with the butler passed Golden Osetra Caviar served up with appropriate accoutrements on a Petit Warm Blini.

Grand, Grande Finales were extreme and extremely good. A Gelato Bar with Tahitian Vanilla Bean, Dark Chocolate and Mango with a whirlwind of toppings offered including Captain Crunch.

There were Hot Out of the Oven Baby Chocolate Cookies, they were Wolfgang Puck's original recipe. More sweets included Double Fudge Brownies studded with Chocolate Chips a cake selection including Ivoire Royale, and then there was the tray passed Cotton Candy. A hit in every color!

The vibe picked up big as the Nikki Beach DJ (he was flown in specially for this evening) drew everyone back to the sand dance floor. The models danced, one mis-stepped and fell into the shrubs but happily reappeared unharmed, and guests got into the fun and fabulous Club Copley rhythm.

Promptly at neighborhood curfew time for sound the DJ bid adieu.... but the party was far from over. To say the ending made a big splash is an understatement. Models went in the pool and so did a few guests. Harry Cooper true to his legend, voluntarily jumped in to much applause.

Poolside, a few guests lingered into the night as consummate host David and others continued with 'bavardement' about the upcoming Globe Gala and more....

More including the fact that Rick Woods and Nevin Kleege of Kleege Industries did a tremendous job of executing David Copley's vision for this fundraiser.

Special applause and thank you's to David Copley for underwriting the entire party benefitting the Globe Theatre.

Bravo to all of those who support the San Diego Police Foundation!!

The Cheetah Conservation Fund held a fundraiser at the design studio of Jordan. CCF Founder and Executive Director Dr. Laurie Marker is pictured here with the designer Jordan and 2 very big Anatolian Shepherds...the dogs are being used in Africa to non-agressively provide a barrier between cheetahs and animal herds of locals. The plan works!
