Snoop Dogg surprised Martha Stewart by attending the grand opening of her new restaurant, The Bedford in Las Vegas Friday night.

Martha Stewart has been a household name amongst homemakers and DIY hobbyists for years. Best known for her magazine and television show “Martha Stewart Living,” which ran from 1993-2004  as well as her syndicated show “Martha,” which ran from 2005-2021.

In 2008, Martha invited (of all people) hip-hop superstar and icon Snoop Dogg to appear on her television show as she demonstrated how to prepare her famous mashed potatoes. Martha invited him back the following year and the pair hilariously made brownies together, which was a huge hit with audiences showcasing their chemistry and showcasing a comedic side of Martha that most hadn’t witnessed before.

It wasn’t until Comedy Central reunited the duo for the roast of Justin Bieber that the pair solidified their unlikely best-buddies friendship.

The dynamic duo partnered for a cooking show “Martha And Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party” in 2016 which aired on VH1 and was nominated for an Emmy in 2017. The show ran for 3 seasons and sparked Snoop Dogg to publish a cookbook entitled, “From Crook To Cook” in 2018.

The Bedford is Martha Stewart’s first restaurant, and according to its website, its menu features flavorful dishes from fresh ingredients sourced locally. Transporting guests to an authentic dining experience at Martha Stewart’s famed country farmhouse, the restaurant boasts French-inspired cuisine and a combination of Martha’s favorite recipes.

A quick glimpse at the dinner menu revealed a wide variety of options such as Salmon, Halibut, Whole Chicken, and a Prime Bone-In Ribeye. Reservations can be made online here.

Martha finds the perfect spot to snap a picture of her billboard along Frank Sinatra Boulevard.

Snoop Dogg‘s 2020 vintage of his 19 Crimes Cali Red Blend has been a hit and is now introducing Martha’s Chard. Cheers and bon appetite.

Happy National Wine Day: Picazzo's Top Picks

In honor of National Wine Day, I went searching for the latest offerings from some of our favorite music artists. As soon as I stepped into the wine store, I spotted the good stuff.

Shining like a miniature gold statue, I see the bottle of Armand de Brignac Ace of Spade by music mogul Jay-Z. I pulled the handle of the glass door to get a closer look only to have an alarm go off, which scared the bleep out of me. I put my head down and shuffled down the aisles.

With his mug on the label, it was hard to miss Snoop Dogg’s 19 Crimes Cali Rosé on the shelf. Since there were only two bottles left, I decided to go ahead and bring one back to the studio. I was really impressed with the bottle design of Post Malone‘s Maison No. 9, which is super sleek and clean.

My knowledge of wine varieties is limited so “thank you” to the friendly employee who didn’t yell at me after asking her a thousand questions running around the store. Mary J. Blige, who just received the 2022 Billboard Music Icon Award, has a new line called Sun Goddess and the bottle I found was glowing.

I have no idea how it actually tastes but with a name like Liquid Popsicle, I had to give it an honorable mention. With all that wine, I figured I needed a glass worthy of its own national day. So, I went with the Big Swig from True that holds an entire 740 ML bottle of wine.

Shout-out to Pinot’s Palette where you can enjoy a glass of wine while channeling your inner Picazzo . . . I mean Picasso and paint with your friends.

Lastly, today is the perfect day for me to show my appreciation to my high school friend John Samano, who let me carry his record crates when I was 17 and gave me the bug to become the DJ I am today. Ironically, John is now the owner of Samano Family Cellars.

Cheers!

    “I find that making wine is a lot like mixing beats. Once you find the right blend, you stick with it to achieve a fine wine. And just like a great mix that keeps the dance floor full, the same goes for keeping the glass full of fine wine at all times. Salud” – John Samano (Samano Family Cellars)
