Mar Yvette's Weekend Roundup

Valentine's Edition - Nous Non Plus, Antonello Ristorante, McCarty's Jewelry and Just Engaged...

Posted: Updated:

FOX 11's food and fun expert Mar Yvette searches the Los Angeles area for some of the best places to eat, drink, shop and have a great time. Featured guests then swarm our FOX Television Center parking lot every Thursday morning between 9am and 10am on Good Day LA, creating a big party as one jam-packed segment known as the Weekend Roundup!

Here's more information about the guests we featured:

Nous Non Plus

Parlez-vous français? Even if you don't, you'll still love the music of Nous Non Plus (French for "Neither Do We"), the fun faux-French indie pop-rock band based out of NYC and LA. With their sweet melange of synth-laden, hook-filled songs sung mostly in French, the band is always ready to bring on the romance ... and a little mischief, too. You can catch the group playing at the Bootleg Theater tonight on Valentine's Day ­ for a special St. Valentine French dance party. Ooh la la.


Antonello Ristorante

A longtime favorite in Orange County, Antonello Ristorante captures the essence of Old World authenticity with a modern Italian twist. On Valentine's Day, the restaurant is stepping up the romance with a special $35 Aphrodisiac Menu created by owner/chef Antonio Cagnolo. The restaurant also offers an expansive selection of antipastos, soups, salads, pastas and entrees as well as an award-winning wine list of more than 700 vintages from around the world.

 

McCarty's Jewelry

Located on Second Street in the heart of Belmont Shore in Long Beach, McCarty's Jewelry has been a part of this local community for more than 80 years. Aside from its stunning collection of fine jewelry and watches from top designers around the world, McCarty's guarantees that you'll feel like family the moment you walk through the door. A big thank you to McCarty's Jewelry for generously providing today's featured couple Marco and Ashlee with a gorgeous engagement ring to make their special moment truly unforgettable.



Just Engaged: Marco Lopez & Ashlee Regan

Today was a first in Weekend Roundup history as Marco Lopez, 27, surprised his longtime girlfriend, Ashlee Regan, 25, with a marriage proposal on live TV!!! The couple met in El Paso, Texas, while working out at the gym. He always noticed her, but didn't want to impose since she always had a guy alongside her. He later discovered that the other man was, in fact, her brother! When Marco finally got the nerve to introduce himself, he brought along his brother who challenged Ashlee and her girlfriend to a game of basketball -- whichever team won would have to take the other to dinner. The boys lost, but Marco and Ashlee decided to ditch the other two and love soon blossomed.  

Today at our Fox Studio lot, Marco popped the question to Ashlee and she said yes! She thought they were invited to be on the Weekend Roundup simply because they had won a free dinner for two at Antonello Ristorante . Little did she know that she would end up with a future husband, a beautiful engagement ring from McCarty's Jewelry , a handcrafted chocolate imprinted with their photo from Madame Chocolat and an unforgettable moment captured on TV. Ah, love. It's good to hear good news, isn't it? Happy Valentine's Day!
