New Orleans Events; Night Out Against Crime, Key To Cure, Ochsner Goes Pink Gala
Written by  // Tuesday, 11 October 2011 12:09 //


Darlings, 


Another fabulous week has gone in my beloved New Orleans highlighted by another victory by
our Saints.

In a very solemn funeral procession and services, New Orleanians paid their respects and put to rest our beloved spiritual leader Archbishop Philip Hannan. May his blessed soul rest in peace!

I did get a chance to partcipate in a few events including the FestiGal Weekend in which I was cast for the parade as the Grand Diva. Chiquita and I enjoyed strolling thru the French Quarter in a BMW convertible.  I also attended a lovely patron party for The Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse( CADA)  which  held a special fund raising event for the agency’s substance abuse prevention and early intervention programs.  On Sunday, after th e Saints game,  attended briefly the book reading and signing of Randy Fertel at the Cabildo.  

This week is going to be very special since I will be doing on Tuesday night my “Toasting with Margarita” at Le Booze of the Royal Sonesta Hotel from 5:30-7 p.m. That evening is also Night Out Against Crime and I am looking forward to attending not one, but two of them in the French Quarter.

But I think the highlight of my week will be the very special Round Table Luncheon at the Royal Sonesta dedicated to the Hispanic Community. As such I am having a wonderful panel of featured speakers and special guests. Chef Peter Page is preparing a very special gourmet menu and the featured entertainment will be Micaela and Fiesta Flamenca. So make your reservation if you want to join me and my special speakers and guests at this very special occasion. More detailed information is below.

Once again this is one of those weeks that I need a clone, especially on Saturday night when there are three events that I do not want to miss: The New Orleans Opera Association opens its 2011-2012 Season with a semi-staged , one night only Gala performance  of Puccini's final masterpiece Turandot at 6 p.m. at the New Orleans Theater at the New Orleans N. Morial Convention Center with a very special and elegant party afterwards. That evening is also Ogden Museum of Southern Art's "O what a Night" honoring my darling friend: artist/photographer George Dureau. Another great event is the annual Casa Argentina's TANGO CELEBRATION 2011,featuring three couples of dancers under the artistic direction of Carolina Zokalski and Diego Di Falco at 8 p.m. at Freda Lupin Memorial Hall", NOCCA..
I am also looking forward to attending on Sunday the  Creole Queen's Bubbly Brunch starting at noon with bottomless bubbles, a terrific New Orleans style buffet  and live music by The Yat Pack, all while cruising the Mississippi. I can not wait! I will return at 2 p.m. to watch the Saints game. Would you believe that is also Carnival Latino weekend at theMardi Gras World in the East Bank at 1380 Port of New Orleans? Visit: carnavallatinonola.com/

 Do not miss the Secrets Gardens of the French Quarter on Saturday and Sunday from 12 noon to 4 p.m.

  
Enjoy your week and I am sure going to try to enjoy mine!

 "Lots of New Orleans history in this family story, which is wilder than the gorillas and almost as juicy as the steaks." -Roy Bount, Jr.

 

Please join us for a reading & booksigning with Randy Fertel

featuring 

THE GORILLA MAN AND THE EMPRESS OF STEAK

A New Orleans Family Memoir  

A masterful storyteller, Fertel weaves the larger-than-life stories of his parents - Ruth, founder of Ruth's Chris, and Rodney, known as "The Gorilla Man" for his quixotic 1969 run for mayor - with the sights, sounds, and tastes of New Orleans.  

  

Rodney became known as the "Gorilla Man" when he ran for mayor of New Orleans on a single campaign promise-buying a pair of gorillas for the zoo. He managed a paltry 308 votes but he purchased the gorillas anyway.

  

 Readers get a behind-the-scenes look at the famous Ruth's Chris Steak House, where Randy first served as busboy, and later as Director of Marketing - until the day he sued the company, and by proxy, his mother. There from the beginning, Fertel takes us to the day Ruth mortgaged her house, to the liquor-fueled board meetings and multi-million dollar lawsuits that followed..  

 

 

Randy Fertel, a writer based in New York and New Orleans, is president of both the Fertel Foundation and the Ruth U. Fertel Foundation. He has taught English at Harvard, Tulane, LeMoyne College, the University of New Orleans and the New School for Visual Arts. He holds a PhD from Harvard where he received a teaching award by student vote. He specializes in the literature of the Vietnam War. A former manager of Ruth's Chris Steak House in New Orleans, he remembers interrupting high school homework to make emergency bread runs. He also served as Director of Marketing for the national corporation. A lover of fine wines, fine food, and great cars, he has long dined out on the stories that make up "THE GORILLA MAN AND THE EMPRESS OF STEAK."

New Orleans (October 10, 2011) – Howling Success is the Louisiana SPCA’s annual gala held Saturday, November 5.  A Motown tribute features artists Wanda Rouzan, from HBO’s Treme, and A Taste of New Orleans Band at the Patron Party beginning at 7pm and Big Easy Groovers Dance Band entertaining the gala attendees from 8:30pm – 12am. Silent auction items and offerings from over thirty New Orleans restaurants round out this event as a must attend fundraiser.

Setting this gala apart is the involvement of two exciting New Orleans additions: the new Hyatt Regency, and Borgne, a new restaurant partnership between chefs Brian Landry and John Besh. Howling Success is the very first event to be held in the new Hyatt Regency’s Empire Ballroom.

Chef Besh serves as this year’s Celebrity Restaurant Chair and Howling Success will be the very first opportunity to taste Borgne’s seafood focused offerings. Having recently returned from a special culinary tour of the Canary Islands, Chef Landry’s menu is inspired by his travels. The restaurant plans to open later this year.

The Patron party begins at 7pm and the Gala kicks off at 8:30pm. Tickets are now on sale at www.la-spca.org/howlingsuccess. Prices start at $125 and table sponsorships are available starting at $1,500. Live music, a silent auction, food from a variety of restaurants, and premium drinks will be offered.
