Willie Nelson shows up at Marie's Bistro last week and gets up and sings? Shut the front door! Well, everyone thought it was Willie, but Marie said it was an impersonator from Vegas.

And, then we have Demetrius Fuller out in California having dinner with Sophia Loren? Not that demure D would do any name dropping ... but, he says the event honoring the actress's 80th birthday was emceed by Whoopi Goldberg and Robert Redford. Oh, and Francis Ford Coppola and Newt Gingrich were also there.

I am feeling a tad left out.

But, hey, I got to attend a wine dinner at The Vue last week, so, all is well. The wine dinner featured Justin wines paired with Chef Gio's dishes. The fried mozzarella salad was great! John Stasko, Tom and Michelle Fillingim, Donna and Ed Macdonald, Mark and Allison Larson, Rick and Karen Schoonover, John and Connie Yarbro were some who enjoyed.

Mike and Angela Ragsdale, Mindy Norris, Kyle Petit, Mark and Paige Schnell, Jayne Ragsdale, Kelsey Ragsdale, Jeff Armstrong, Ashley and Shannon Johnson attended a Moroccan dinner last weekend at Roux 30A.

Melody Bogle, Donna Vann, Jackie Lynch, Dorothy Starbuck, Micheline Riggio were some members of the Women's Art Network who attended this month's social at Donnelle Clark's new home last week.

Nan and Richard Jacobs celebrated their 29th anniversary on Sunday.
