What: Alley Theatre "Wild Things" kick-off party.

Where: Louis Vuitton in the Galleria.

The 411:  In advance of the Alley Theatre's annual men's smoker, "Wild Things," the gents invited their fair ladies to join them in a pre-celebration at the luxury fashion boutique. "Wild Things" chairs Trey Peacock and Steve Morse welcomed more than 100 Alley supporters and the Veuve Clicquot flowed. 

Joanne King Herring stole the show as she showed off her vintage Louis Vuitton bag that she had carried with her during the Soviet-Afghan war in the late 1970s.  That had Louis Vuitton hosts Andy Fullen, Jamie Christensen and Patricia Smith quite impressed.

Who: Jane and Dean Gladden, Valerie and Will Dittner, Frances Jones, Florence Rutherford, Ceron, Sara and Paulino Ramos, Marsha and John Beeson, Clayton and Shel Erikson, Bob Cavnar, Nic Phillips and Frank Billingsley and Kevin Gilliard.
