Patti Murphy and Wanda Kimbrell at ‘InterContinental.’

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.
