TONIGHT: Martinis and Cigars during ‘Casablanca Nights' Ball

The Jackson Free Press is a "Humphrey Bogart" sponsor of the Jackson Arts Council's big fund-raising event, The First Annual Storytellers' Ball, at the Old Capitol Inn on Thursday, August 17, starting at 6:30 p.m. Join us for a gournet Moroccan Feast, Blues divas, the Capitol City Stage Band, lots of dancing, a silent auction to beat silent auctions, a pooside cigar bar and a martini-tasting station. Dress swanky; black tie optional, sparkles advised. $50 per person; reservations at 601.960.1557.

Heather Allen, Akami Graham and Dan Colbert will perform. The art auction will include work by this week's JFP cover artist, Lea Barton, as well as Wyatt Waters and many other Jackson artists. You can also bid on footballs autographed by Deuce McAllister and Archie Manning and get yourself photographed for the JFP galleries!

This is a party not to be missed—and you can help support the arts in Jackson while you sip your martini. Imagine. Call now.

Thanks to all our new JFP VIPs!
