Ladies in red and gents with subtle red details were the order of the evening at the UL Spring Gala. The event at the Alumni House had its fair share of dames in demure colors as well — soft pinks and pretty greens that harken spring’s blooming buds and the lush gardens where a tent was erected for partygoers ready to have a seat, enjoy some delicious fare and honor the Mosing family. The Savoies were both on point in their Cajun crimson: First lady of UL was stunning in a shorter red dress and red lips while UL President Joe Savoie donned bold red-detailed shoes. We spotted some lovely black jumpsuits in the trend department and a few gents in seersucker suits perfect for cocktail done al fresco.

La Carreta, Saul Rubio’s Louisiana-based chain of Mexican eateries, debuted its new Jefferson Street restaurant April 22. Frozen margaritas — strong and delicious — are also available in strawberry or mango, or opt for a traditional (or top shelf or suprema) on the rocks. When it comes to the food, Party Girl definitely recommends you get something with pork in it, like the tacos al pastor. La Carreta doesn’t take shortcuts on slow-cooking and shredding the pork with onions, and it’s apparent. For those of you watching your girlie figures, go for the ceviche — it’s mahi-mahi marinated with lime served with avocado and is a much lighter way to start a Mexican meal than queso or nachos.

A group of Festival International’s founding board met up at POUR in River Ranch April 18 to enjoy drinks and a special Rhythms on the River fundraiser for Fest. POUR offered a bottle of The Prisoner to the first person to accurately identify the festival’s founding executive committee members (pictured in the poster founders signed at the gathering). With a little help from Philip Gould, Jill Laroussini nailed this mid-1980s group: Michael Doucet, Julie Calzone, Taylor Rock, Sally Herpin, Cathy Webre, Phillipe Gustin, Herman Mhire, Phil Lank, Donnie Robin, Tina Girouard, Herbert Wiltz and Lyn Bertuccini. Thanks to all of you for your efforts all those years ago.
