“Kick off you shoes and throw ’em on the floor…dance ’til the morning light, Louisiana Saturday Night…”
Let me tell you, the first ever Lola Party was indeed a blast! The party was held at 421 Texas and for those who have not been to the event space, you must GO! It reminded me of something out of The Great Gatsby, gorgeous, very art deco, and classy! The food catered by 421 Texas can be summed up in one word ‘incredible’ and oh, so southern. From chicken and waffles to turnip greens and cracklins’, to jambalaya, and the super delicious Sweetport Hart’s Island Crunch ice cream with pecans…Is your mouth watering, yet? It certainly should be!!! Bevin and the team did a fantastic job from the decor, the wonderful sponsors like Abita, Natchitoches Meat Pie Company, Lang & Blackwood, and Forbing Ice House to name a few; and there was even an official greeter – a man on stilts! The ladies looked dashing in their southern attire while the men were quite dapper in their finest “Louisiana Saturday Night” wear. The band, “Easy Money” had the crowd tapping their toes and dancing long into the night. The event was absolutely wonderful with proceeds going to the CRD No Limits Foundation, which is a non-profit organization founded on behalf of a precious little girl named Rylie. Born with Cerebral Palsy, Rylie’s goal is to raise money to provide assistance to families with children who have special needs to purchase medical equipment and cover medical expenses. She and her family long for others to know that with God’s help, children have No Limits! “Louisiana Saturday Night” will become an annual party; and personally, I cannot wait until next year! A perfect date night for a great cause!!
