What: Buffalo Bayou Partnership's "Bayou Bash" 2014.
Where: Downtown's Sabine Promenade.
The 411: What a delightful day it was for some 500 young professionals to revel on the banks of Buffalo Bayou. Bayou Buddies, a group with a penchant for the greener thing in life, gathered for the yearly "Bayou Bash" party that spreads onto the rolling berms of the Sabine Promenade in support of Buffalo Bayou Partnership's conservation efforts.
While listening to tunes by Space City Shakedown Acoustic Revue and Havoc Wagon, the casually dressed crowd consumed 900 pounds of steaming crawfish. Liquids courtesy of Saint Arnold Brewing Company and Barefoot Wine & Bubbly cooled down guests while gentle pontoon boat rides and lawn games adding a healthy dose of al fresco entertainment. A silent auction and raffle contributed to the kitty that reached $40,000 for the continued transformation of the urban waterway as it morphs from a storied resource into an active destination.
