Rachel's Vacation

or that was the name of the show Rachel Ray was here filming in Santa Barbara. Not only did she visit Stella Mare's, but she managed to venture to the Wine Cask and Elements. So, with those destinations, we certainly knew it wasn't going to be $40 a day.

Her vacation was cut a little short however, as the electricity gave the musicians grief on Friday and those of us in attendence, including Ms. Ray, we entertained with canned jazz. It was a glorious evening however, and I did pack a picnic and enjoyed the people watching and canned music listening.

The only glimpses I got of Ms. Ray was her walking across the lawn with her "peeps" and camera crew and then seeing her plunk down into a big white puffy chair they had set up on a cordoned off section of Courthouse lawn....for the VIPS and wannabe VIPS. Ms. Ray is quite diminutive so I only got glimpses of the top of her dark haired head after that.

Don't know when the episode will run...but stay tuned and we'll try to find out.

I was at the Jazz fest and saw Rachel Ray and while she was friendly with her fans she certainly didn't exude the same peppiness we know and love her for. She was all business…

I was at the jazz festival, in the vip section with Rachel Ray. I went up to her to say hi, and she was rude, and diddnt even give a smile.She was snapping at the people who were there to help her, and was nothing like the person on the show.I know i am not a fan of hers anymore
