OBSESSIONS. DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. 20 C eron — hairstylist to the fashion set, best-dressed man about town, and dedicated supporter of the charity and arts circuits — is sharing his talent with the swank new Memorial Green development on Memorial Drive, west of Gessner. This is his third salon; he opened Uptown Park 14 years ago, and the second in downtown Dallas in 2009. For the Memorial Green salon, he had a Chanel aesthetic in mind, and he tapped Dallas' Droese Raney Architecture to build out the sleek space in rose gold and soft pinks, with touches of brass. Not to worry, Ceron devotees: The ever-so-popular stylist will divide his time between all three salons, where staff is fully attuned to his oeuvre. Shelby Hodge A Minute With the Mane Maestro Inspired by. The Long Weekend: Life in the English Country House, 1918-1939, by Adrian Tinniswood … glamorous high society in the time between World Wars. It's fabulous! Also, the Manolo Blahnik documentary, Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizards, and his fabulous life in Bath, England. Westward Ho, BEST TRESSED! Ceron opens new doors at Memorial Green. T he Menil Collection temporarily shuttered in late February and will remain closed until the fall. It's all part of the plan to renovate the main building at 1533 Sul Ross Street in Montrose, which involves refurnishing the loblolly pine floors, replacing gallery walls, and updating the interior and exterior lighting. All adjuncts to the main building remain open — including the Cy Twombly Gallery, Richmond Hall's Dan Flavin installation, Bistro Menil, the museum bookstore, the Rothko Chapel, and the Byzantine Fresco Chapel (showing Francis Alys' mesmerizing Fabiola Project through October) — and the Menil has a diverse slate of programming planned through the fall. Don't miss: The Menil Collection, Houston Ballet, and the Merce Cunningham Trust collaborates on an hour-long performance that blends John Cage compositions with dances choreographed by Merce Cunningham and costumes and decor by Jasper Johns; reservations required. And stay tuned: When the renewed Menil reopens in the fall, it will unveil treasures from the permanent collection that have never before been on public view. We can't wait. Matthew Ramirez NIGHTS AT THE MUSEUM F ollowing a fall iteration curtailed by Hurricane Harvey, Houston Antiques + Art + Design Show roars back to town Friday through Sunday, March 16 through 18, at Silver Street Studios in the Washington Avenue Arts District. Dolphin Promotions once again organizes the event, which gathers 50 exhibitors from across the United States, Europe, and South America — a panoply of antiques, paintings, pottery, estate jewels, silver, rare books, prints, vintage clothing, accessories, and more, from ancient to mid-century modern. Houston notables include Tenenbaum Jewelers, David Lackey of Antiques Roadshow renown, and Fred Nevill Antiques; who join Oliver Fleury (French architectural and garden); Silver Art by D & R (pedigreed silver, religious artifacts); Diptych Fine Arts (Mexican Colonial era treasures); and Dorian Frank (Art Nouveau finds). And A Fare Extraordinaire launches HAADS Café. Friday – Sunday, March 16 – 18; Friday, 11 am – 7 pm, Saturday, 11 am – 6 pm, Sunday 11 am – 5 pm, at Silver Street Studios, 2000 Edwards St.; $10 weekend admission; Matthew Ramirez Mad for HAADS M yth is reality. Legend says that you can fi nd private jets that are fl ying empty — as in, without passengers — and book the plane for a great deal. Commonly, a leg is empty if the plane is heading to pick up passengers and take them somewhere, or if it's dropping off passengers and fl ying back home, empty. If you think that chartering an Embraer Legacy 600 (normally a 50-seat regional jet converted to 13 luxury seats for the private fl ying world) from Texas to Southern California for $14,800 instead of the retail rate of $39,000 is a good deal, then legend is reality. We booked this fl ight, and others, though not all at that amazing discount. Empty legs are real, but carry real risk. The risk is that the "live" leg — the trip that the originating passengers booked — may cancel. A large charter operator told us, "It will happen, and someone will get burned." If you've booked the empty leg, as well as a hotel, business meeting, other logistics, and the originating fl ight cancels, there's no empty-leg fl ight. If your broker can't scramble and fi nd another empty leg, you now have to fl y commercial (urghhh) or book another private fl ight, but at the going rate. You must have fl exibility. We have a client with two kids at out-of-state colleges and a home in Colorado, who loves to fi sh in Florida. He has a standing request: Keep your eyes open for empty legs to those destinations, if the price is right, he may book it. The Company Plane is a boutique private fl ying advisory practice excelling in charter bookings, jet-card evaluation, and aircraft purchase analysis and brokering.
