Emerald Coast Magazine held its annual Best of the Emerald Coast event last Saturday night at Grand Boulevard. Lots of folks were there, including Peter Burke, RoseAnn and Keith Knight, Bob Doty, Ampy and Fred Cox, Zandra Wolfgram, Laurie Hobbs, James Murray, Donna Burgess, Ron Green and Lisa Morris, Ginny Olson and Darwin Davis. I sampled way too much food and fell in love with Another Broken Egg's bananas foster pancakes.

Walton County's Tourist Development Council held its annual luncheon at the Hilton Sandestin on Tuesday. Stacey Brady, Scott Brannon, Cecilia Jones, M.C. and Stella Davis, Harry Millsaps, Kitty Taylor, Bill Chapman, Jamie and Sean Dietrich, Malcolm and Linda Patterson, Suzanne Harris, Didon Comer, Payson and Steve Howard, Barbara Miller, Nancy McConnell, Kitty Whitney, Lori Smith, Jami Ray, Sharon Maxwell, Tracy Louthain, Laurie Hobbs, and Mark Hodgdon were some of the dignitaries and business people who attended.

Mary Zahner hosted 27 members of the Women's Art Network at her lovely Rosemary Beach home for its monthly get together last week.

Chef Emeril Lagasse has been shooting his new TV series which will air nationally on the Cooking Channel in 2013. Segments have been filmed at Sandestin, Bud & Alley's, Fish Out of Water, and Stinky's. Gov. Rick Scott was a guest for one of them.

Jim Radtke's son Jimmy and his girlfriend, Mandy, were visiting last week. While here, Jimmy proposed Mandy on the beach at sunset. Congratulations!

Dave and Carol Rauschkolb enjoyed an anniversary trip to Black's Island.

Susan and Donal Alfieri are back from a cruise aboard the Vantage Odyssey on the Danube. Susan said it was magical approaching Budapest at night with its magnificent buildings lit up like a fairyland.
