Laissez les bons temps rouler! (Let the good times roll!) The saints came marchin’ in at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library’s 24th annual gala Sept. 6, 2013 which featured a salute to “New Orleans and All That Jazz.” Guests in their Mardi Gras marvels were treated to cocktails and appetizers, a Creole-inspired dinner catered by the La Jolla Hyatt Regency, and a high-energy afterparty with dancing and entertainment from jazz bands and zydeco performers. Proceeds from the gala support the Athenaeum’s arts and music mission. The design committee spent two weeks bringing the Bayou to the library’s rooms and table settings. Ann Craig chaired the event with co-chairs Ginny Black and Alice Brana, assisted by a committee of 36.
