Article on the Link Stryjewski Foundation Bal Masque

From NOLA.com: “Jimmy Buffett headlines at Link Stryjewski Foundation Bal Masque

The scene at the Orpheum Theater felt like an Oscars and operatic ball convergence, with a dose of Carnival festivity. Sophistication and creativity was the rule of the evening with women in long gowns, men in tuxedos — some partygoers came in costume. All wore masks.

It was the inaugural Link Stryjewski Foundation’s Bal Masque to benefit Kingsley House and Youth Empowerment Project. Co-hosts Donald Link and Stephen Stryjewski have a longstanding reputation for throwing great parties, and with this fete their Link Restaurant Group (Herbsaint, Cochon, Butcher) and foundation made it the place to be at Saturday (Jan. 9).

For example, how many benefits, the first time, have Jimmy Buffett in concert? As the headliner, Buffett and his Coral Reefer Band, with special guests Preservation Hall Horns, played the songs we all know and love. Preceding him on stage was Jon Cleary, the Cha Wa Indians and the Roots of Music marching band.

From the Miami Herald: “Jimmy Buffett-themed resort officially opens with the star taking the stage

The Maestro of Margaritaville took to the stage for a soggy beach-blanket blowout in Hollywood on Saturday afternoon, signaling to many who grew up and live in this humble, once-sleepy beach town that the tides have forever changed.

As the sun dropped and the rain drifted out to sea, thousands of people massed along the Broadwalk in front of Margaritaville for the official grand opening of the Buffett-themed resort that now stands as the beach’s new centerpiece. The $150 million attraction offers more than just 349 rooms, eight bars and a spa — it’s also a beacon of hope that this snowbird paradise will at last become a first-class tourist destination.

“Let’s put the top down on this place!” Buffett shouted to kick off the one and a half-hour free concert.

Two mammoth digital screens were erected on the sand, towering over the beach’s iconic little Bandshell, one of the last remnants of old Hollywood that locals have stubbornly fought to keep from the wrecking ball of progress.

“I finally get to play the Bandshell,” Buffett joked from his perch across the Broadwalk from the old beach stage.
