Rienzi, the MFAH’s stately Staub-designed house museum for European decorative arts, concocted one of its most convivial events of the year — an evening that took as its motif the 18th-century tradition of the punch party. Historically inspired and contemporary cocktails courtesy of Mongoose versus Cobra had guests sipping and socializing, while the contemporary quartet AMP’D serenaded couples taking in Rienzi’s terrific terraces. Festive imbibers: Sara and William Edwards, Bill Braden, Jean-Michel Lanskin, Ashleigh Schap, Blythe Milstead, Dana Falgout, and Wasim and Fatema Khan.
