There they'll stand - the Roman amphitheater of Aspendos, the tomb of the Sufi poet Rumi, the ruins of the Assyrian city of Nimrud, the ancient Armenian church of Akdamar and a dozen other wonders, all splendid in the Southern California sun.

I sipped the Q, one of the four specialty cocktails at the event, while I tried to spot Deen.
