White Knight at Spago
A white horse outside Spago restaurant on the night of Aug. 9 marked 30 years of marriage for one local couple. Wearing a knight’s helmet and a tuxedo, David Samuels rode horseback down Canon Drive to surprise his wife, Patti, by recreating his proposal to her 32 years ago at Griffith Park. He obtained a permit from the city and received a police escort to Spago, where his wife, a longtime former Spago employee, was having dinner with a group of friends to celebrate her 55th birthday.
“Honestly, he’s very romantic like this all the time,” Samuels told the Courier.
