With everyone from the mayor's wife to locally known political activists present, people put politics aside to descend on Pia's. Pia Goff, owner of Gulfport's destination restaurant Pia's Trattoria, offered a free spread for locals last month. The sampling included an array of cheeses, wines, figs, and pate. Pia also served two types of dessert and warm bread. Seen here, Laura Henderson and her mother Karean Dorn joke with their tablemates.
