Where: At Silver Street where Paul-David Van Atta's PDV Special Events partnered with social book honchos — Scott Evans, Jeff Henry and Sami Shbeeb — in creating the "Warehouse Carnivale — A Street Riot of Color."
The 411: More than 800 revelers joined the indoor street festival at which Houston Treasures founder Warner Roberts introduced the honorees. Contributing to the party atmosphere for VIPs were bites from French Corner Catering, wines by Denman Moody and Gloria Ferrer and music by Richard Brown's new string quartet and DJ combo, which performs under the name Flashdrive. The captivating warehouse decor, courtesy of Linda McIngvale’s A Memorable Event, included groupings of trees dressed in hot-pink crystal LED lights and 20 LED tree branch “chandeliers” in multiple changing colors.
The decor went on and on with various vendors providing their best in party props. Twelve food stations, a Mardi Gras float cum bar and a lounge set-up by Todd Events made for one visually stimulating night.
Who: The party crowd included George Lancaster, Andrea and Bill White, Monica Hartland Blaisdell, Nino Shbeeb, Anne and Dr. John Mendelsohn, Shara Fryer, Jana and Scotty Arnoldy, Soraya and Scott McClelland, Vanessa Sendukas and Richard Wainerdi.
