Party Girl was told planning is already under way for Palates & PatÃ© 2007 to be held in early November. Mark it down with a big P, as Palates & Pate is quite a sight to see.

Linda Kidd and Melanie Goudelocke hosted a holiday brunch buffet in Linda's lovely River Ranch home recently. The tables were set with Fitz & Floyd and graceful towering taper candles all under the watchful gaze of Kidd's impressive collection of nutcrackers. Guests feasted on tea sandwiches, cruditÃ©s, baked brie, crawfish Ã©touffÃ©e (courtesy of Linda's mother Marlene Domingue) and Linda's own fabulous crab dip (PG wants that recipe ' a lighter version of the Cajun classic). Among the friends who enjoyed sharing stories of family and holiday travel plans were Colleen McDaniel, Janie Bayard, Kathy Randol and Mary Anne Diel. Thanks, Linda and Mel, for an all-to-brief respite from the holiday shopping frenzy!
The gathering that got the biggest buzz during this holiday season had nothing to do with Christmas. It was, of course, The 'No Party Party' fund raiser for City-Parish President Joey Durel at Glenn and Dana Armentor's Greenbrier home, and it definitely lived up to the hype. Shuttles ferried guests from parking spots around the neighborhood throughout the evening, and the final count was well north of 500. Durel wore a tie with both red and blue stripes. "And you'll notice that the stripes are all the same size," quipped Armentor in his introduction of the mayor. Sen. David Vitter and Rep. Charles Boustany both made the historic scene along with a dozen other local elected officials, including Sheriff Mike Neustrom and District Attorney Mike Harson. Taking a cue from the polite political company, even Dana's cockatoo Bianca was on her best behavior!
