New Orleanians love of fun and festivities is legendary – and the New Orleans Advocate is right in the action with Nell Nolan Society and Jeff Strout’s Party Central.

Each week, Nell Nolan Society takes you to a number of the fun events that are taking place in the Crescent City with descriptions of the party, the purpose (especially if it's a fundraiser) and the bold-faced attendees. And, of course, photos.

New Orleanians love of fun and festivities is legendary -- let the New Orleans Advocate show you the who's who of the city and the best parties in tow...

“Everybody loves a party. Well, most everyone. Some just like the vicarious experience of reading about gala times and that's what I'm trying to relay,” said Nolan, who has been covering the scene for more than 30 years. “Others like reading about a fete they attended and remembering a good time.

Jeff Strout’s expertise on the city’s party scene gives Party Central, published on Sunday, an insider’s view of the art, theater and festival scenes, plus some creative lagniappe.

“It shows how active the community is and the diversity of events,” says Strout.

Join in the fun and take the social swirl.
