Vicki Hitzges started her career communicating for the Dallas Cowboys and soon hosted their weekly TV show, Special Edition. As a television news anchor and talk show host in Dallas, she had the privilege of meeting U.S. presidents, business moguls, movie stars, fashion designers, authors and athletes. Later, she became a publicist, getting clients featured in national media. One of her clients, motivational guru Zig Ziglar, was impressed with Vicki's creativity, so he urged Vicki to speak and invited her to be one of the few speakers he would personally mentor.
Vicki wants Baton Rouge women to know that "attitude is everything: Happiness doesn't happen TO us, it happens IN us. Choose to enjoy life!" She will incorporate humor, illustrations and energy in her talk to leave our audience feeling inspired and motivated!

Bad Guys, Good Eats! Pop-Up Dinner at Restaurant IPO
Chef and 225 contributor Jay D. Ducote and Chef Chris Wadsworth hosted the Bad Guys, Good Eats! dinner at Restaurant IPO Wednesday night. The dinner was themed around famous movie villains, pairing cocktails and ales with plates of food resembling famous baddies like The Joker, Lord Voldemort, Hannibal Lector, and many others. The highlights of the night were the three middle courses—a black bean soup laced with blood sausage to signify Lord Voldemort, a brace of coneys on black eyed peas resembling Sauron, and lamb medallions atop a fava bean puree to pay homage to the famous favorite of Hannibal Lector.
