“I have two rules,” shared Pittsburgh Irish & Classical Theatre artistic director Andrew Paul. “One: I don't drink until after we've made our presentations and two: I take notes. You never know when you're going to blank out.”

No blank outs reported among any of the 260 who were on hand at the Midnight In Paris-themed gala held at LeMont on Thursday, where the likes of co-chairs Robert Levin and his wife, Kerry Bron, honoree Marina Stockdale, board prez Eugene and Sandy O'Sullivan, co-founder Stephanie Riso, Judy and John Woffington, and Jeff and Rachel Lowden were mingling.

During cocktails, the aforementioned rule maker was seen walking the walk, diligently taking notes at the podium before striking up a conversation with Richard Rauh.

Meanwhile, people were six deep as they elbowed their way through the room that quickly induced claustrophobia.

A silver lining, though, as the guest list included about 40 more than it did last year.

“It's been a bit of a challenging environment with the economy the past few years, but we're doing OK,” Paul added.
