Oscar Night at Lol Ha Beach Bar, February 27, 2011

Once again, the Lol Ha Beach Bar was the site of the Oscar Telecast and Event, which was very well attended by locals, stars, and celebrities.  The Akumal Red Carpet (ARC) was ablaze with glitter and glamour, as co-hosts Laura Bush and Mary Hartman of Entertainment Tonight greeted  each of the stars.  And, Chef Carlos served up one fantabulous buffet of appetizers as the party continued well into the night.

 

Thanks to Laura's photographer for a number of the photos.
