A Mardi Gras weekend

Although it is frantic all year, the social beat really heats up during Mardi Gras season.

Here’s a look at last weekend:

Thursday: Krewe of Gemini Royalty Banquet at Shreveport Club.

Friday: Krewe of Sobek and Krewe des Ambassadeurs grand balls, the first at Riverview Hall, the second at DiamondJacks.

Saturday. Krewe of Centaur Ball at Riverview Hall. (They must have been catching themselves coming and going at Riverview.)

Sunday. Krewe of Barkus and Meoux Jazz Brunch at Barksdale Officers Club.

And... Sunday afternoon Mary Catherine Boogaerts’ Art Show opening at Columbia Cafe.

Some weekend tidbits: Krewe of Barkus and Meoux Captain Michelle Christian is sporting an engagement ring she received Christmas Day from Churck Sartori, who was at the Barkus brunch. on Sunday
"Christmas Morning he and his two children, Taylor, 6, and Julia, 3, came to my house, got down on their knees and said, 'Will you marry us ?'" said Christian. Sartori is an owner of Shaver's Catering ... Christian's choice for "Captain's Award?" Her dad, Bob Lindsay for his help in the krewe and support of her.

Among the people at Krewe of Centaur Grand Bal on Saturday was Sid Weaver, 84, step-father of Centaur Queen Barbara Zerrahn, who had come home from the hospital the day before after suffering a stroke on Dec. 8. Weaver and Zerrahn's mom lost their home in Hurricane Katrina, so lived in a FEMA trailer before moving here, said Zerrahn's hubby, Greg.
After Weaver got home from the hospital, he said, "I am going to be there," said Greg.
And, he was!

... Speaking of the Krewe of Centaur, King Centaur David Johnson of Natchitoches, is a king veteran, serving as a top royal for the second time in eight years! He is also a former king of Krewe of Dionysos, Natchitoches.
