It’s 5 o’clock somewhere, and that place on a tropical Saturday night was Monroe Stephenson’s party pad for Stevie’s Big Easy. While sipping top shelf margaritas prepared by master mixologist Monroe, guests enjoyed the sunset from his beautiful backyard overlooking the Vermilion River. After dark, the gang grazed on Jane Trahan’s mouth-watering meatballs, Angie Hargett’s yummy pinwheels and homemade pasta. Dancing the night away were Nicole Hamilton, looking precious in a festive frock, Barbie Olinde, stunning in a sexy sundress, and young lawyer hottie Matt Fontenot, cute in everything he wears!

A steamy summer night set the scene for the sultry ladies and casually cool gentlemen attending the Taste of the Town on Main Street in River Ranch, benefitting The Children’s Shelters of Acadiana Youth. Donors sashayed through the shops after hours savoring wine, beer and heavy hors d’oeuvres prepared by favorite area food establishments. Entertaining strolling guests were accordion player Drew Simon at the newly-opened Lamp Designs and acoustic guitar strummer Diego Martin-Perez of 80 Proof by the shi-shi Hemline boutique. Sisters Hanna and Haley Herrington were selling in style at their new boutique, Herringstones. At Tenzie & Company, Candace Greer showcased her paintings to a receptive crowd, while Angie Ross was spotted in an eye-catching zebra-print frock and Michelle Blanchard sported a sexy purple cami.
Party on!
