Painted the Town Green

Last night, J and I had a wonderful time at our annual school's gala at Generations Hall.

Set to the theme, Paint the Town Green, guests wore many shades of my favorite hue. My bow tie in crab print and pocket square in shrimp and martini print are both by NOLA Couture on Magazine Street. My jacket and pants are by Ralph Lauren POLO, of course.

J and I were picked up at home in style by a couple of my favorite parents. Yes! They own a stretch Hummer. It is not a rental. It was a total surprise.

The pre-party began at Swizzle Sticks, one of our favorite bars located in the Loew's Hotel.

After a couple cocktails, pedicabs pedaled us to Generations Hall. More eating, drinking, and dancing to the tunes of the Creole String Beans was fun for all. The LIVE auction of several class items was a hit. 

GALA fun...

Though our creations, Monsieur Baleine and Monsieur Crabe, were not part of the LIVE auction, I am happy to report each brought in $660.00 for a total of $1320.00.... pretty impressive!

After the gala, we ubered to the Rusty Nail and then home safely.

It was another enjoyable night. It is always fun to connect with folks outside of school.

Painted the Town Green, y'all!
