Lull in social calendar proves to be short-lived

I’m assuming the back-to-school rush is responsible for the virtual halt in the city’s social scene last week, not that I’m complaining.
That said, my announcement in last week’s columns about The Advocate’s new Red Stick Social calendar proves the lull will be short-lived.
I got a ton of emails from readers about upcoming events as far out as April 2013 — and, no, that’s not too far in advance to let me know of your event.
So, all you nonprofits, Mardi Gras krewes, debutante organizations, schools and other groups that have major fundraisers, balls, galas, parties, etc., on the horizon, keep me posted. As soon as you have a date nailed down, shoot me an email at email@example.com.
Forum 35, which already has let me know its always anticipated Viva il Vino wine dinner is Sept. 27, recently held its other major event — Art Melt. This juried art show kicked off with a preview gala July 13 at the State Museum. Of the 56 pieces of original art on display, an impressive 14 sold that night! The winners, chosen by juror Franklin Sirmans, included Kellye Eisworth, first; Courtney Barr, second; Craig Taylor, third; J Callendar, Rachul McClintic and Crystal Nolfo-Brown, honorable mentions; Emily Lacour, Ann Connelly Award; Joy Petty, People’s Choice Award; and Kimberly Bates, Forum 35 Select.
Emily Adams and Christy Marino chaired this year’s event.
Five nights later, Forum 35 teamed up with SeNSE for a special, packed social at Blend.
