Out to Dinner

The new InterContinental Houston hotel in the Med Center celebrated its grand opening with an elegant dinner in its ballroom. Virtuosi of Houston accompanied a Mediterranean dinner from Safina, which is on the ground floor of the 21-story tower. And Goodnight Charlie’s — a fun, laidback honky-tonk — welcomed Olivier Krug, heir to the exclusive Champagne house, and a handful of serious wine collectors for a tasting dinner. The Champagne and food pairings were supplemented by live music, which similarly progressed throughout the evening.
