My journey


My Mother taught me to entertain...and cook and clean and to have good manners.

I have been in the marketing, advertising and event planning business professionally for 33 years and for the past 25 years I have dreamed of having a place where we can have a party every day. Even the back of my business card says “Every day should be a party”. And so it begins with a charming “VENUE” on the famous bricks of Camp Bowie Boulevard in my beloved Fort Worth, Texas. The Venue is created to be a place where you can celebrate, gather, eat, drink and be merry. As we go along we’ll see what you want. I have not carved the rules in stone because each event will be tailored for YOU. So come along for the ride. It’s sure to be a happy place. 


And my Father?

He taught me that if you say you are going to do it. And, of course, the famous saying "What will the neighbors think"?  That right there has made a lasting impression. However when I was making a cake at some teenage year of age, it would make me go into orbit when he wanted to take a taste of the cake batter out of the mixing bowl. I'm still trying to get over that.
