Margarita's New Orleans Area Events, Photo's: Week of December 14
Written by  // Tuesday, 14 December 2010 12:17 //

Darlings friends,

I hope you have been like me enjoying the Saints' victory and the wonderful Christmas New Orleans Style celebrations that make our Christmas at home so special. I have been trying to stay warm and attend as many events as I possibly can. Last week, it was a very busy week for me, since it included my sold-out Round Table Luncheon at Begue's with speakers Priscilla Lawrence , director of the HNOC, Ann Tuenermann,

Founder and Director of Tales of the Cocktail, Food Goddess Lorin Gaudin and a very special appearance by Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas. We were entertained by talented cabaret singer Suzaune Yee McKamey and Jim Walpole on the piano. The champagne tasting by Linda Smith, wine specialist for Republic Beverage was delightful. The culinary creations, the entertainment, the libations and the wonderful guests made the luncheon to be a very memorable festive one.

I was also cast on Friday as a hostess for the Obituary Cocktail that met at Le Booze of the Royal Sonesta Hotel . It was a lot of fun and today, December 14, I am hosting my monthly Toasting with Margarita from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Immediately after, I will be attending the opening of Monty Python's “Spamalot” at the Mahalia Jackson Theatre.

During the week, I attended at the Bombay Club, the Movers & Shakers-A professional and social networking event,  the opening of Victory Bar at 339 Baronne Street,  the last of the Al Copeland Foundation Christmas Galas at Mardi Gras World on the East Bank, Art Against AIDS at Canal Place and few other events.

 Let's see what this festive week has in store for us:

Darlings friends,

I hope you have been like me enjoying the Saints' victory and the wonderful Christmas New Orleans Style celebrations that make our Christmas at home so special. I have been trying to stay warm and attend as many events as I possibly can. Last week, it was a very busy week for me, since it included my sold-out Round Table Luncheon at Begue's with speakers Priscilla Lawrence , director of the HNOC, Ann Tuenermann, Founder and Director of Tales of the Cocktail, Food Goddess Lorin Gaudin and a very special appearance by Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas. We were entertained by talented cabaret singer Suzaune Yee McKamey and Jim Walpole on the piano. The champagne tasting by Linda Smith, wine specialist for Republic Beverage was delightful. The culinary creations, the entertainment, the libations and the wonderful guests made the luncheon to be a very memorable festive one.

I was also cast on Friday as a hostess for the Obituary Cocktail that met at Le Booze of the Royal Sonesta Hotel . It was a lot of fun and today, December 14, I am hosting my monthly Toasting with Margarita from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Immediately after, I will be attending the opening of Monty Python's “Spamalot” at the Mahalia Jackson Theatre.

During the week, I attended at the Bombay Club, the Movers & Shakers-A professional and social networking event,  the opening of Victory Bar at 339 Baronne Street,  the last of the Al Copeland Foundation Christmas Galas at Mardi Gras World on the East Bank, Art Against AIDS at Canal Place and few other events.

 Let's see what this festive week has in store for us:
