A kick-off party was held at DUO tonight to celebrate this upcoming event. So, what interesting tidbits did I glean from the night's attendees? Well.......

Did you know that Victoria Snee was an author?!  She and I chatted about her upcoming book signing.  She'll be appearing at Stephanie Anne's in Highland Park Village next Thursday from 11 am to 1 pm.

Come meet Victoria and buy a signed copy of Snee's book "The Beauty Buzz. No More Beauty B.S." If you're unable to come by, don't worry! I sweet-talked Victoria into giving me a signed copy of her book that I will be giving away on this blog in the next few weeks!!

D'Andra Simmons was excited to point me to her Facebook Page to check out the sexy new photos just taken for an upcoming marketing campaign for her skincare line, Hard Night, Good Morning.  All I have to say after seeing them, is "WOW. Gimme some of that stuff!" 

One of my favorite labels is Alice + Olivia. Alison Volk was totally stoked to invite me (and all of you) to see their latest collection at Tootsie's tomorrow - Thursday, June 2 - at a reception hosted by Dallas Summer Musicals honoring members of Center Stage from 6-8 PM.

I had a great time swooning over talking to Hunter Sullivan.  He'll be performing at the launch of Bailey's Prime Plus new Craft Cocktail Menu next Tuesday at a soiree that I will be co-hosting at their Park Lane location. Lucky me!

So, what can one expect at the Celebrity Waiter Luncheon this Fall? Each table sponsor will host a table of 10 generous guests who come prepared to tip their waiters with wild abandon and to bid for the extraordinary and unique auction items.

The waiters will seek tips in eccentric ways - pocketing your silverware, withholding your meal, singing, performing and dancing; the antics are endless as waiters will go to great lengths to raise the most money during 90 action-packed minutes. This fierce competition between waiters results in important funds being raised for Family Gateway.
