The Look Ahead: One Last Chance at the Iron Sommelier, Rockin’ Casbah, and Feathers and Fur

This past week saw some interesting things. Some happened here in Houston, others elsewhere. Charl Schwartzel won the Masters. Gbagbo was captured in the Ivory Coast. France’s burqa band went into effect. Dennis Quaid realized cocaine wasn’t his friend. It’s on, Monday. Let’s look ahead.

As always, if we need to know about an upcoming event leave a comment, tweet at us (@TheLoopScoop) or email us at contact@theloopscoop.com.


Iron Sommelier an Event Benefiting The Periwinkle Foundation (Last Chance)


Where: Houston Country Club [1 Potomac Dr., 77057]
When: Tuesday, April 12th at 6:30PM to 9:00PM
How Much: $150
Scoop’d From: Aaron

If you haven’t yet heard of the good work that The Periwinkle Foundation does you’re not in a minority. We just found out about them when our ex-writer, Aaron, took up in their ranks.

The brief overview of the foundation goes like this: “The Periwinkle Foundation develops and provides programs that positively change the lives of children, young adults, and families who are challenged by cancer and other life threatening illnesses and are cared for at Texas Children’s Hospital.”

On Tuesday, April 12th, there will be a sommelier competition and wine tasting to benefit the programs of The Periwinkle Foundation. Art will also be auctioned off by Kelly Gale Amen, Jonatan Lopez and John Palmer. This is an event you won’t want to miss, ESPECIALLY, since if you do miss it this year, you have to wait until 2013 for the next rendition of Iron Sommelier.


Rock the Casbah: the Wrecking Ball—Blaffer Gallery’s 2011 Gala

Gala for good. Bid on a plethora of donated artwork. “This year’s Moroccan-themed bash at Blaffer Art Museum will feature an exquisite buffet dinner by City Kitchen, the city’s best art auction, and dancing to the exotic sounds of Moodafaruka.”
