Two of my favorite events take place over the next couple of days. BUST Breast Cancer's art bra style show takes place Thursday night at the L'Auberge Event Center and yours truly will be serving as emcee. The festivities start at 6 p.m. with a VIP reception, followed by the runway show at 7 p.m. I promise its lots and lots of fun.

Friday night is the LASM Gala "Red," getting underway at 7:30 p.m. This is always one of the fall's more memorable galas.

If you're looking for something a little calmer, the Baton Rouge Symphony kicks off its 2017-2018 Masterworks season with internationally acclaimed violin virtuoso Sarah Chang performing Piazzolla’s "Four Seasons Buenos Aires." Now, the concert doesn't start until 7 p.m., but The Advocate is launching a new venture with bubbly and sweets in the lobby of the River Center Theatre at 6 p.m. So, come by and celebrate with us before the concert; Holly Clegg and I will be there for all the festivities, and we'd love to have you join us in a toast.
