When you think of a party, think of the border. Recently, The Society Diaries teamed with El Patronato Cultural Nuevo Laredo & The Border Cultural Promotion Foundation to host an event for several hundred guests in Laredo. The event was at the city’s favorite eatery, La Reserva to celebrate the city, its culture and festivities, just in time to kick off the events surrounding Laredo’s festive Washington’s birthday celebration and debutante ball. In fact, some of the debs were on hand this evening.
Cocktails were poured, champagne was popped and hors d’oeuvres were passed as hundreds of Laredo’s most esteemed denizens arrived en masse to celebrate the magazine’s presence in the South Texas region. As an added bonus, guests sipped and shopped while Neiman Marcus, Deutsch & Deustch, Polly Adams and Joe Brand offered it’s toniest merchandise to peruse throughout the evening.
Our host and sponsor partners included Epitacio Resendez, Linda Leyendecker Gutierrez, Elvita Hachar at La Reserva Bar & Grill, Tom Wensinger and Xitlalt Herrera of Neiman Marcus San Antonio, Porsche of San Antonio, Tad Deutsch with Deutsch & Deutsch Fine Jewelry, Polly Adams boutique and Magda Foster, Joe Brand and Terri Deutsch, La Posada Hotel and Vegas Imports with Eva Vega. The party ensured that everyone stayed in a playful mood as the Martha Washington celebratory weekend of debutante events that would soon capture the city’s attention.
