In Covid Times, Symphony Reimagines Opening Night

Guests enjoy lovely, thoughtfully scaled-down performance, and home-delivered dinners.

Cheers to 15 Years

PR Boutique founders Karen Henry and Gretchen Brice welcomed dozens of friends, clients and colleagues to a crystal-themed event at Ben Berg’s still-new B.B. Lemon, in honor of the public relation firm’s 15th anniversary. Bartenders poured crystal martinis and guests glimpsed into a “crystal ball” with the help of a palm reader. Since its founding, the PR Boutique has doubled in size and expanded to Austin and San Antonio. Cheers to the next 15!
