Morgan's Note

October may be my favorite month of the year! Though New Orleans is the perfect city for costuming year-round, there’s something about costuming on Halloween that’s special – whether you’re handing out candy or party-hopping through the French Quarter.

This month also heralds our annual Bryan Subaru “Wine, Dine & Design” tablescapes events!

Held as usual at Audubon Tea Room, this year the Patron Party will be Wednesday, October 12, 6-8 p.m. and will feature live music and the most fabulous curated auction (meaning just a few, very exciting items) – and I’ll be the auctioneer! Get your ticket now for only $50 at MyNewOrleans.com/Events.

The following day, Thursday, October 13 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., the breath-catchingly beautiful luncheon, which is almost sold out, will wow your senses and open your heart when you learn all about Bastion and enjoy a delicious lunch. The few tickets left for the luncheon can be obtained by calling Margaret Strahan at 830-7264.

Bastion is a nonprofit organization that is actually an intentionally designed neighborhood in New Orleans for returning warriors with life-long rehabilitative needs and families. Neighbors will all be volunteers in a warrior’s care plan, working together to engender the recovery from the wounds of war.

Even if you can’t join us at “Wine, Dine & Design,” consider donating directly to Bastion at JoinBastion.org.

While you're planning your fall, don't forget to include the amazing “Azúcar Ball,” benefiting the New Orleans Hispanic Heritage Foundation on Saturday, November 19 at the Hyatt Regency. If you like dancing or enjoy great food and entertainment, this black-tie evening themed “an enchanting evening in the land of fire and water” is for you! Call 636-0107 to purchase your tickets today.

Enjoy your October and don’t forget the costumes!
