The Blue Door
It’s back! The unmarked chic and discreet bar, Marfreles has re-opened. What’s new, is valet parking, a more spacious and elegant upstairs, and more wait staff. It kept the downstairs much the same, with a bit more lighting. You can now make reservations for a prime spot and time. It’s chic and distinguished; perfect for that private tete a tete.

The annual fundraising gala, chaired this year by Frank and Carolyn Grese of Group One Automotive, recognized community, corporate and medical honorees including: Jan Carson and Tim Connolly(Community), Marathon Oil Corporation (Corporate) and Dr. Igor Gregoric (Medical). At the event a white 2014 Lexus IS 250, which was perched inside the theater on the stage, was raffled off by Emcee Deborah Duncan and Jan Carson. Before announcing the lucky winner, Duncan and Carson teased the crowd by asking everyone with a letter “M” in their last name to stand. In the end, Dr. David McPherson, former AHA board member and board president, was shocked when his name was called!
