A red-carpet entrance at the Grand 16 led into A Night of Glamour for the advanced screening of Sex and the City 2, sponsored by Moss Mercedez-Benz. Champagne flowed as glitzy guests nibbled on yummy finger sandwiches (loved the cucumber!), roasted veggies and sweet treats by a la carte. Keeping with the Moroccan theme, petite and precious Janie Domengeaux Bayard stole the show with a beaded red headdress. Trend-setter Julie Calzone, decked out with jewelry from Kiki, sported an eye-catching ring blazoning the apropro “Unhitched.” A decked-out Jean Coluzzi wowed the crowd in a Middle Eastern-inspired magenta frock threaded with gold accents. Also at the glamorous premier were host Sharon Moss, son Cory and daughter-in-law Sarah, tennis pro Chanda Rubin and sis Lashon, a sharp-dressed Chip Jackson and Dr. Jennifer Hightower Jackson, Janie Campbell in a stunning black halter dress, and the always-fashionable artist Hope Hebert. As for the movie, it’s an Abu Dhabi-do! Party On!

The 75-year-old company specializing in tubular fabrication and installation services to the oil and gas industry plans to offer shares of its stock to the public for the first time.
The defeat, or rather highjacking of House Bill 420 in the final days of this year's Legislative Session, say Reps. Vincent Pierre and Terry Landry, is the result of the propaganda spread by one unidentified local media outlet and an unnamed former state Representative, but nothing to do with the original legislation's lack of checks, balances or details.
He’s a singer. A songwriter. A piano man. A family man. He’s even got his own Wikipedia entry. He’s David Egan. And he knows ancient secrets about the monolithic stones of Stonehenge that he’s not willing to share.
