Gina Babineaux treated her best customers to a special night of shopping and nibbles at women’s clothing store Artesia. Babineaux, who recently moved to Katy, Texas, threw the shindig in honor of new manager Michelle Elwell. Babineaux says the store will go on with Elwell running the show, though she visits often. Plans for a Texas Artesia? Not completely off the table — but not anytime soon.

Social Southern Table and Bar hosted a luncheon to preview its summer menu additions in early July, inviting local media and foodies to taste the seasonal items.
Guests sipped on refreshing cocktails like the Watermelon Crawl and were served menu fare buffet-style.
Anna Goodson Stringer greeted guests and welcomed praise for new menu items while Charlie Goodson and Marc Krampe were hard at work keeping plates full of flavor. (Goodson was even spotted clearing dishes and wiping tables.)
