When you get the itch for a short road trip to Grand Coteau, check out the open-door socials at Casa Azul Gifts on Martin Luther King Drive. On Saturday, Feb. 17, Party Girl stopped by for a Mardi Gras party and some discounted purple, green and gold items. Co-owner Patrice Melnick has more socials in the works as a daytime cousin for the shop's Open Mic Nights, the free shindigs where all poets, musicians, storytellers and listeners alike are welcome. Party Girl filled up on king cake and other goodies at Casa Azul before heading to New Orleans for another round of parties and parades.
Mixed Nuts ' now that's an interesting title for an art exhibit. Watercolor artist Jebbye Moroux and ceramist Tom Ladousa recently held an artists reception at The Frame Shop & Gallery 912 in the Oil Center. It's always a pleasure for Party Girl to see all of the art lovers out and about and the fashion notables in attendance. Among the guests were James Bayard, Cassie Dugal, Virginia Yongue, Janie Bayard, Dutch Kepler and Jamie Crain. Whimsical watercolors, vibrant ceramic art, good friends and patrons filled the gallery.
The show continues through March 17, so there's still time to get nutty!
