The Celebration

On May 17, 2021, Leon’s Lounge was the site of a lively viewing party for Bravo’s popular Below Deck Sailing Yacht, Croatia. Hosted by the historic speakeasy’s owner, Scarlett Yarborough, the event benefited sea and land animals. Jacqueline Smooke, Joan Lebow, and Tracy Faulkner chaired the nautical-themed soirée. Among the celebrity guests were Houston’s own Erica Rose and Cindi Rose and cast member celebrity chef Natasha de Bourg who was flown in from Trinidad for the event by the Roses. Erica Rose is an attorney and a former cast member of The Bachelor and a current cast member of Below Deck Sailing Yacht, Croatia along with Natasha, and world-famous silhouette artist Cindi Rose is a former cast member of Married to Medicine.

“Born in Trinidad, Natasha De Bourg escaped a difficult childhood and troubled marriage to take a leap of faith and attend culinary school in Europe. After finishing school, she focused on working at top Michelin-star restaurants. Her skills are sharp as a knife, and she eventually became an executive chef in France before getting into yachting. Natasha’s headstrong nature often puts her at odds with other crew members – especially her counterpart, Daisy, the Chief Stew.” –
