New Orleans Events: SweetArts, Philharmonique Louisiana, Love Letters
Written by  // Tuesday, 08 February 2011 10:27 //

Margarita Bergen--New Orleans EventsDarling readers,

Another fabulous week has gone by.

Among the many events that I attended was the lovely American Heart Association “Go Red for Women” Luncheon at the Sheraton with a fabulous fashion show. That evening I attended The Mississippi and Louisiana Chapters of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Regatta Kickoff Celebration at the Southern Yacht Club with Gary Jobson. Gary is a world-class sailor, author, TV commentator, lymphoma survivor, National Chairman for the Leukemia Cup Regatta and an old friend of mine. It was great seeing him after 40 years.

On Friday, I joined The Historic New Orleans Collection at a reception to celebrate the opening of “In Search of Julien Hudson: Free Artist of Color in Pre–Civil War New Orleans and the release of the accompanying exhibition catalogue.

On Sunday, I attended a lovely reception at Faulkner House in honor of authors Dr. Jessica Harris and Terry Cronin, MD. That evening I was invited to celebrate a Texas-style Super Bowl Party at the house of Hon. Rufino Saavedra, Honorary Consul of Peru and his lovely wife Wyonne. I cooked a batch of chile con carne and dressed as a cowgirl and enjoyed, along with my brother and other guests, the game and the festivities.
 
This week is going to be a very busy one for me since I will be cast as a hostess at my "Toasting with Margarita" at Le Booze Bar of the Royal Sonesta Hotel from 5:30 to 7 p.m.  I will be joined by Cheryl Charming aka "Miss Charming™ who has been heavily steeped in the cocktail culture for 30 years, tending bar for 28 of those years, with 14 published books. It should be a lot of fun. Then, on Wednesday, I will be hosting my popular Round Table Luncheon at noon at the Bienville Suite of the Royal Sonesta Hotel. (Please check out my fabulous guests and entertainment at the calendar below.)

Check out the Bayoubuzz Calendar and Post Your Events

But prior to my  Toasting with Margarita, on Tuesday I will be going to the Hotel Monteleone since it is  is hosting a book signing and champagne toast for its history book, “Hotel Monteleone: More Than a Landmark, The Heart of New Orleans Since 1886,” followed by a a Literary Luncheon. I am also looking forward to the Countdown to French Quarter Festival
Press Conference on Wednesday. As you know, this year the French Quarter Festival has been expanded to include the Thursday before that weekend. This year’s dates are April 7-10.

After my Luncheon, I am looking forward to attending on Thursday, The Historic New Orleans Collection and the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra's  presentation of  “Identity, History, Legacy: Free People of Color in Louisiana, La Société Philharmonique.” This is the fifth installment of “Musical Louisiana: America’s Cultural Heritage” at 7:30 p.m. at St. Louis Cathedral.

On Friday Alliance Française de La Nouvelle-Orléans is presenting its annual Au Claire de La Lune Gala with the theme " Valentine's Day in Paris" at The Eiffel Society.  That evening is also the opening of The Color Purple at the Mahalia Jackson Theatre. It, too, should be a lot of fun.

On Saturday, I am looking forward to attending the CAC's  SweetArts 2011-Art in the Dark.
It honors individuals and organizations that embody the heart and soul of the New Orleans cultural arts community. This year's honorees are:

John Barnes, visual artist and educator
Ben Jaffe, Creative Director, Preservation Hall
New Orleans Arts District, represented by Denise Berthiaume and Jean Bragg
New Orleans Fringe Theater Festival, represented by Phil Cramer, Kristen Evans, Damon Rosenzweig and Emilie Whelan
Aimeé Farnet Siegel, arts patron
Derrick Tabb, Founder, Roots of Music

SweetArts 2011marks the kickoff of the CAC's 35th Birthday Season! Congratulations to all the deserving honorees. On Valentine’s Day, I am looking forward to attending Love Letters at Le Chat Noir with Nell Nolan and Dennis Woltering and  later the Irvin Mayfield and the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra's “Shakespeare in Love, a Valentine’s Day Concert” featuring the music of Duke Ellington and the Love Sonnets of William Shakespeare, recited by comedian Harry Shearer at the CAC.
