28 LUNCH IN THE CASBAH SHELBY HODGE EYES A PAINTING. PHOTOGRAPHY EMILE C. BROWNE. D ennis Brackeen might want to add another facet to the purview of Moxie, his recently re-imagined design mecca on West Alabama. Just ask Becca Cason Thrash and the guests who joined her for a luncheon at Brackeen's opulent decoratives palace. Guests were enthralled by room after room of antiques, art, and architectural flourishes. But no room was more delightful than the one where Brackeen and his team had recently papered the walls for Texas Design Week Houston in opulent casbah scenes from the lush Cabana book. In this venue Cafe Annie served a glorious lunch, with the tables dressed in bohemian riches from Becca's own collection of china, crystal, and silver flatware — truly a scene from Aladdin. Et voilà! A new party mecca is in the making. Who: Laura Sweeney, Patricia Griffith, Janet Gurwitch, Francine Ballard, Karen Pulaski, Phoebe Tudor, Sabiha Rehmatulla, Duyen Nguyen, Courtney Fertitta, Ann Wolf, Mia Smith, Greggory Burk, Joan Schnitzer Levy, Meg Goodman Bonini, Leigh Smith, Valerie Fuller, Sara Dodd, Joanne King Herring, Diane Lokey Farb, Luba Bigman, Katherine Phelps, and Laura Greenberg.
