Club Faces was the scene Thursday night as Third Ward girl Cindy Tyler blew out the candles on her delicious birthday cake surrounded by friends and family. I had no idea how nice the club life on Almeda had become. WOW. Cindy dazzled everyone in a Betsey Johnson couture black ruffled dress, with the aroma of Jo Malone’s signature fragrance, complete with Jimmy Choo black strappy sandals, accented by black silk flowers in her hair and a black channel clutch. Sounds fabulous, right? Of course, she’s my baby sister!
