Dinner with Jean-Charles Boisset at Chateau du Lac

There are Fridays and then there are Fridays. Last week I had one of those epic evenings that can only be described as dreamy. When Boisset invited me to their Alchemy of the Senses Wine Dinner, I said yes without even knowing the location. That’s how fun their events always are! Little did I know…

It’s the Great Pumpkin (Village), Charlie Brown

It’s the most wonderful time of the year at the Dallas Arboretum! I finally got to see this year’s annual Pumpkin Village display and it did not disappoint. This year’s theme is “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” with your favorite Peanuts character taking over the pumpkin village. I had a blast exploring it with…

The Dallas Opera Patron Party 2019

What an honor to be invited back to The Dallas Opera Patron Party this year! I loved last year’s event and was so excited to attend that I rushed back from Fredericksburg today to get all dolled up for the annual soirée. The Patron Party is hosted as a thank you to donors prior to…

Curtain Call Gala 2019

What a spectacular evening! The Firehouse Theatre introduced their 2020 season at their second annual Curtain Call Gala. The formal dinner event had a Roaring 20s theme complete with a speakeasy, themed drinks, and fabulous flapper outfits all around. As a publicist (my real life job!), I’m proud to represent The Firehouse Theatre and was…

Beverley’s Bistro and Bar in Dallas

It’s a dark and stormy morning and I’m just dying to tell you about dinner last night. My mom and I tried a new spot in Dallas before watching Jeff Goldblum and the Mildred Snitzer orchestra perform and we were so charmed and blown away that I decided to write about it for you. We…

Star Wars Like You’ve Never Heard It Before

Movie lovers, you have not lived until you’ve heard a John Williams score played by Dallas Symphony Orchestra live during a movie screening. Tonight I had the pleasure of attending Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back, one of DSO’s Movies in Concert. Tonight also just so happens to be the kickoff of the 2019-2020…

Picnicking at Shakespeare in the Park

I cannot believe I’ve never been to Shakespeare in the Park before, especially since I love any and every excuse to eat outside on a picnic blanket. Up until my dear friend Matt Holmes was cast as Christopher Marlow in Shakespeare in Love, I had never even heard of Shakespeare Dallas and now I want to…

The Stoneleigh Rosé Garden Party

I had just about the most fabulous Saturday one can have at The Stoneleigh with my friend Rodney this afternoon! This was my first time at The Stoneleigh Rosé Garden Party, formerly called the Pink Party, and it did not disappoint. For my non-Dallas readers: the historic Stoneleigh hotel is located in the very chic…

Game of Thrones High Tea

“When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die.” Can you believe the finale is finally here? I’m not ready. I did certainly get in the spirit this afternoon though with a Game of Thrones high tea with my friend Sylvia! The London Baker in The Colony is known for its Harry…

The Dallas Opera One Night Only Spring Gala

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending The Dallas Opera‘s One Night Only Spring Gala feature three internationally acclaimed tenors: Michael Fabiano, Bryan Hymel, and Matthew Polenzani. The talented trio sang selections from Turandot, Pagliacci, Werther, L’elisir d’amore, Fedora, Eugene Onegin and La Gioconda accompanied by The Dallas Opera Orchestra, conducted by the adorable Italian…

Domaine Henri Maire Tasting at Lavendou Bistro

Last night I had the pleasure of attending a six-course wine dinner hosted by winemaker Jacques Hauller of Domaine Henri Maire, a Boisset Collection wine label. Domaine Henri Maire is in the Jura, a wine region I wasn’t previously familiar with in eastern France between Burgundy and Switzerland. Isn’t it lovely? The dinner was held…

Dallas Arboretum Food and Wine Festival 2019

Last year I wrote, “I have decided that the epitome of happiness is an ice cream cone in your left hand, a glass of wine in your right hand, and live jazz during cherry blossom season at The Dallas Arboretum” and I said the exact same thing to my friend Matt this year, as we…
