The annual Bo's Place Girls & Guys Night Out isn't typically a costume party but with the "Putting on the Ritz" theme and with the Crystal Ballroom at The Rice as the setting, these young professionals just couldn't help themselves. Thus, the sprinkling of flappers and gangsters that added an even livelier note to the already enthused gathering of 350 revelers.
Perhaps it was the screening of the silent films or the early-evening DJ spins of 1920s-type music or the giant fish bowl of pearl necklaces for the taking, whatever the source, the energy pulsated through the party space. The abundance of gaming tables added to the speakeasy ambience.

Applause, applause for chairs Stephanie and Julian Fertitta III, Courtney and Jason Fertitta and Elizabeth and Zack Fertitta.
Guest grazed through a sea of food stations from Palazzo's, Gigi's Asian Bistro, Mia's, Taste of Texas and more and bid on silent auction items. Many of the luxe offerings were courtesy of Longoria Collection vendors. (Elizabeth Fertitta's mom, Sylvia Dorsey, owns the sleek home accessories boutique.)
The party crowd included Bo's Place board chair Ronnie Cuenod, Diane and John Connally III, Sylvia and Tommy Dorsey, Estela and David Cockrell, John B. Connally, Kelli Kickerillo and Todd Forester.
