I've always enjoyed the summers in Louisiana because it allows me to work on my tan. For all of us sun-worshipers there's a new spa in town that keeps sun damage in check. Party Girl attended the ribbon cutting ceremony of Dr. Christopher Hubbell's medical spa, a Jeuné. A Jeuné falls into a new category of medi-spas where advanced technology meets traditional spa treatment. I was particularly impressed with Dr. Hubbell's free Botox seminar "The Truth Revealed about Botox." After all, I'm not getting any younger, and all this party-going takes its toll. One lucky guest at the party won the Botox drawing prize. I look forward to the grand opening celebration on the evening of Thursday, Oct. 25 at the new office located at 913 South College Road. Maybe this time I will be the lucky winner of the grand prize give drawing ' my skin could use some rejuvenation!

My stomach and soul have been getting rejuvenated lately with the rich culinary delights at Clementine's guest chef series. On Aug. 22, guest Chef Gary Schenk of Joey's in Lafayette cooked an exceptional dinner. I sat down to an incredible appetizer of bacon wrapped mushroom bruschetta, followed by the most velvety sweet potato and duck soup imaginable. After a refreshing, Southern-tinged version of the Italian classic of mozzarella and prosciutto with tomato and balsamic vinegar, I dove into a magnificent shrimp and eggplant dish. Whenever I'm invited to multiple course meals, I'm thankful for my flexible stomach. Otherwise I might have waved the white flag before the dessert of baked brie topped with Chambord blackberry vanilla ice cream. The wine parings were superb, and this very special menu was a perfect match to Clementine's warm and elegant interior. I left feeling well-fed and with the intention to come back as soon as I've worked this one off at the gym.
