Bloomin’ Good Preview

It’s hard to believe that February is already here. Especially since three houses in our neighborhood still have Christmas decorations on their front lawns. But it’s already time to look ahead to May, which is shaping up to be a busy month on our social calendar with House of DIFFA on May 21 and AIDS Interfaith Network’s Bloomin’ Ball a week […]

Deco Decadence

Finally. A reason to wear our favorite flapper dress without getting stares. (People at Six Flags are so judgmental.) But everyone will be donning their best 1920s-era duds, so we’ll be in great company at Sunday’s big fundraiser for AIDS Interfaith Network, The Great Gatsby…the Cat’s Meow. It all takes place at the gorgeous Preston Hollow home of Faye C. […]

Lion Queens

Pardon the graphic image, but when we typed in “Lion Drag” this is what popped up through our photography service, not the female impersonator queen-of-the-jungle we were hoping for. But it does set the stage for the craziness that ensues each year at the Miss Leo Contest, happening this Saturday at the Hidden Door. The Leo Party was founded in […]
