New Year’s Eve was a good excuse for the members of the Pendennis Club, the Louisville Boat Club and Big Spring Country Club to get together for a joint New Orleans Mardi Gras-themed party. It was held at Big Spring and more than 200 attended.

Food stations spread around the club included shrimp, oysters Rockefeller, crawfish, crab cakes and andouille sausage stuffed mushrooms, along with chicken etouffee, seafood jambalaya, shrimp po’boys and lots of deserts including caramel cake.

Jeanne and David Ferguson, Ann and Chris Dreisbach, Bonnie and Gerry Boland, Diane and Jim Buchart, Barbara Hood, Marty and Joey Elpers, Jenny Hale, Pat and Jim Carrico, Mary Carol and Judge Mosley, Sharon and Tom Reynolds, Carol and David Armstrong, Marsha and Gary Lloyd, Gail and Ken Potish were among the merrymakers.

On New Year’s Day at The Henry Clay, The Silver Spoon’s Kathy Hensley and Phillip Koenig entertained their friends and families at their annual late afternoon into the evening buffet dinner.

Phillip cooks good-luck foods like pulled pork, mashed potatoes, sauerkraut, green beans, mac and cheese, and pinto beans, along with too many deserts to mention. He puts dimes in his cornbread, and whoever finds a dime gets a present.

Showing up were The Henry Clay landlord Bill Weyland and his wife, Edith; Mayor-elect Greg Fischer and his parents, Mary Lee and George Fischer; Jan and John Goldberg and their two girls; Laura Whitty; Judy and Tom Ottinger; Sue and Fred Rice; Pam and John Anson; Eleanor and Fred Goldberg; Cathy and John Yarmuth; George Stinson; Eric Haner; Julian Stinson; Marilyn and Brooks Bower; Karen and Ken Sales; Rhonda Goodall; Leila and Jim Sublett; Nancy and Bill Samuels and two grandchildren; and Madeline and Mayor Jerry Abramson
