Out to Dinner

The social season is in full swing, with a number of high-profile dinners — both intimate and grandiose — highlighting the calendar. Hostess extraordinaire Becca Cason Thrash was at it again, welcoming Krug Champagne for an evening of bubbly, food — courtesy of acclaimed chef Tyson Cole — and music at her Memorial home. Co-hosted by designer Naeem Khan, the event also featured a performance by jazz artist Gregory Porter. ... Ahead of its grand opening, Yauatcha hosted a special five-course meal for Lynn Wyatt and 15 guests, in honor of the Rothko Chapel’s 45th anniversary. ... At the Ballroom at Bayou Place, woman-about-town Alicia Smith celebrated her birthday with a “Fifty and Fabulous” dinner, with aerial artists and a '50 Shades of Gray'-themed cocktail hour. ... The Houston Symphony’s annual wine dinner and auction was held on the stage of Jones Hall, which was transformed into a wine “cave” for the evening. ... Italian designer Stefano Ricci made a special appearance for an intimate dinner at Neiman Marcus.
