I’ll try to update By Invitation events (which Amex Platinum Members get) as they get updated. One of the ways I find out about these events is from my credit card statements where they attached a little sheet with my paper statements.
On November 12 to 14 in New Orleans, LA, there is a VIP Krewe du Vin reception being held. You will get to mingle with top chefs like Emeril Lagasse and John Besh.
