Whiskey Bravo

Look who stopped by 723 Whiskey Bravo to watch the Ole Miss game! Football great Archie Manning is pictured on The Roof with Holly Bridgeman, their bartender and resident Rebel fan. Hotty Toddy!

South Waltoners closed out a very busy October with a bang as the parties came to a crescendo.

The Cattle Baron's Ball held its first Branding Party last Thursday night at Seagar's to try to name the Barons and Rustlers for the upcoming ball to be held in March. Fred and Ampy Cox, Ray and Martha Jones, Betty and Charlie White, Robert and Marinella Monk, Sandy and Greig Buckley, Olivier and Amber Wiebe, James Murray, Lynn Wesson, Gale Culling, Donna Johns, Barbara Miller, Mary Damroth and Roger Hall were some who attended and enjoyed Seagar's excellent bites of Steak Diane, Caesar salad, and bananas foster. Some even signed up for a Baron or Rustler table.

I enjoyed an excellent dinner with a perfect sunset view at Vue on 30A Friday night with RoseAnn and Keith Knight and John Stasko. Chef Gio outdid himself with his signature Pistachio Grouper and fried oysters. Nice. I saw Jennifer Steele, Mike Ragsdale, Debra Cannon, Rick and Karen Schoonover, Laurie Hood, Donna and Ed Macdonald, Scott Brannon, and Chick Huettel there.

Vue on 30A and Caliza both hosted Halloween parties last Saturday night. Jane and Greg Bahr, Vickie and Ray Dollar, Lynn and Steve Dugas, Oli and Kyle Petit, Tom and Dana Saffel, Mike and Angela Ragsdale, Shannon and Ashley Johnson were some who attended Caliza's, and Peggy and Art Hayes and RoseAnn and Keith Knight attended the Vue's.

Lahrye and Nancy Radford and Jerry and Karen Des Jardins hosted a birthday celebration for their mothers — Margie Radford (89) and Jane Koerner (94) — at Crystal Bay Retirement Center Oct. 23. Jane's daughter, Noel Koerner from Texas, and approximately 60 guests attended. Friends and neighbors from Gulf Place attending included Jane and Doug Anderson, Lorene Gruzdis, and Betty Krika.

Walton County native and Head Referee Dr. Walt Anderson, NFL # 66, accepted a pink flag from Dante Cano prior to last weekend's Miami Dolphins and New York Jets game. The NFL helps raise breast cancer awareness during October.
