Y’all listen up, now. Are you ready to put down the books and cut loose? Ladies, break out your corsets and petticoats. Gentlemen, dust off you top hats and tails. Your 2L class officers are blissfully pleased to present to you the 2014 Barrister’s Ball, Southern Soirée.
Southern Soirée, a themed Barrister’s Ball, will be held Saturday, March 8, at the Lyceum Ballroom from 8:00 p.m. – 12:00 a.m. The Lyceum Ballroom is located downtown at 124 3rd Street, across from the Roux House. Southern Soirée will include a buffet style menu of southern delicacies finer than a frog hair split four ways including: fried chicken and waffles, shrimp and grits, biscuits and gravy, brisket, and more. The premium open bar will be taking your drink orders and offering two specialty handcrafted Southern libations: the French 75 and a Bourbon Punch. Entertainment will be provided by one of the Southeast’s hottest bands so that you can cut a rug ’til the lights come on.
Although Southern Soirée may conclude with a second line at Midnight, if you think that is the end of the party, then bless your heart. Join the exclusive Southern Soirée Lagniappe Party conveniently located across the street – upstairs at the Roux House – for $5 premium doubles and $3 shots. For those wishing to hang their hats downtown for the night, we have a block of hotel rooms available at Hotel Indigo for a special rate of $119. If you think you might get tight as a tick, book a hotel room, and you’ll only have to go down the road a piece to call it a night!
Southern Soirée Tickets and Southern Soirée t-shirts will go on sale this week at the SBA table in the lobby of the Law Center. Guests will receive a free Southern Soirée kookie while supplies last! Tickets are $35 now but will increase to $40 after the Mardi Gras break. Parking will be available at the Convention Street parking garage for $3. Y’all come, now!
