Bloody Mary Bash: What began as a friendly challenge three years ago between Ed Nader and Bonne’ Summers has turned into some holiday fun. The annual Battle of the Bloody Marys gave guests at Nader’s Gallery a chance to decide whose special seasonal concoction they liked best. The event also supported a local non-profit with a percentage of merchandise sales going to the Volunteers of America. Angie White, president of Slow Foods North Louisiana, was the third challenger this year. The event was Dec. 9. Nader’s team won the contest. – Mary Ann Van Osdell

Christmas Crawl: The annual Christmas Crawl started by Beth Woods five years ago was held Dec. 9. She started the event while a Community Renewal Haven House leader to bring her block of neighbors closer together. People are invited into each other’s home every year; she chooses three. They spend one hour in each, visiting and talking and meeting the new neighbors for the year. It has brought the block of houses together as a unit. Hosts this year were Karol Fontaine on Delmar, Keith and Michelle Perkins on Delmar, and Andrew and Susannah Hodges on Thornhill. – Mary Ann Van Osdell
