82 SCENES FETE SET BEFORE SPRING RUSHES IN, WE LOOK BACK AT FALL'S MOST TALKED-ABOUT EVENTS. Photography Dana Driensky, Tony Valadez. SPIRIT OF TAOS S outhwestern chic and mid- century modern rarely mix, but the Friends of Wilkinson Center made a compelling case that the combination be deemed en vogue. Thanks to a change in venue for its Spirit of Taos event, young professionals decked out in Navajo prints and custom boots congregated inside the modernistic Statler Hotel. Aesthetics aside, the hotel's restaurant/bar/bowling alley, Scout, created the perfect party atmosphere. Guests played pool and ping-pong and bid on the silent auction before a seated Tex-Mex dinner by chef Graham Dodds and a performance by the Blake Martin Band. Seen: Jessica and Austin Smotherman, Meredith and Jeremy Zidell, and Sarah and Tommy Tucker. Lisa Collins Shaddock NORTH TEXAS FOOD BANK HARVEST R ecord-setting rain couldn't keep the chic set from the North Texas Food Bank Harvest event at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden. What did co-chairs Maggie Kipp and Melinda Knowles do when the threat of torrential downpours on the day of their al fresco fête loomed? The dress code was switched from Garden Glamour to Garden Glamour and Galoshes — or, more specifically, Hunter wellies. Alongside honorary chair Stephan Pyles, M&M welcomed more than 450 guests for the moveable feast that included 23 food stations with bites from Le Bilboquet, Uchi, and The French Room. In the end, even a storm couldn't stop the benevolence, with more than $191,000 raised. Seen: Janie and David Condon, Elizabeth and Eric Gambrell, Amy Turner, Lisa and Marvin Singleton, and Natalie Chu.
