Convocations Soirée Brightens Winter Spirits


In the dark of winter, bright spots of good food, good friends, and good theater go a long way toward creating warmth when the temperatures outside are anything but!ConvosSoiree2015-29

The Friends of Convocations annual Soirée managed this on a cold Tuesday evening last month, with a catered dinner and a private performance downtown Lafayette. The location varies each year and our choice of the Lafayette Theater was a new experience for a lot of guests. Everyone loved the chance to see this historic Lafayette landmark all dressed for the occasion, with shining linens mimicking the colors of the sea, centerpieces from Rubia Flower Market, and lighting designed by the Hall of Music.

Afterward, the conversation and coffee flowed freely as everyone gathered to discuss the show (great!) and the meal (superb!). Jane’s Gourmet exceeded expectations with a delicious meal including a smoked salmon appetizer, plated dinner, and sumptuous mini dessert buffet.

It was the perfect kick-off to a week of theater. Guests left on a high note knowing they’d just had an invigorating Tuesday evening of food, fun, and culture.
