So much for blog breaks, right?
Met some friends on the Square last night.
The sun was shining, the breeze was fresh and everyone was out enjoying summer.
We met for dinner at Rockbottom.
I had this awesome wedge salad smothered in blue cheese. The price was right too, under $6!!!
This one is for you Debbie, I know you love these.
Plus a beer special. Equally important on a summer evening with friends.
After dinner we strolled the Square for a bit of people watching.
These gorgeous animals enjoyed the cool water and the spray on their faces.
I loved this moment of caring between the officer and her horse.
Robin Lacy and DeZydeco were playing their brand of Louisiana music and we took a seat and sang along.
There is never a face without a smile in the crowd when these talented musicians perform.
Wish I could share a bit of the sound with you here. Visit their website for a taste.
A little walk down memory lane. One of my besties, Kathy, was my roomie way back when we were in our early twenties. We live on the first floor of a century old victorian five family. Joani and Robin Lacy lived upstairs. The other tenants were also a mix of musicians and a couple who were landscape designers. Creative people close in age. We had some good old times together. One of those magic pockets of time that is remembered fondly. I have had more than my fair share of those and am so grateful.
Beautiful Joani can really belt a tune.
She is also the author of a wonderfully spooky book, The Legend of Hollister House.
If you love a good ghost story with atmosphere galore, this is a must read.
What a talented pair. The music this couple puts out is just a ball of Cajun style fun.
My bestest Cajun pal Jodie has endeared me to Cajun country forever. We had an awesome time last August on our 10 day Southern road trip.
The music really brought the memories back.
Live music, by the best local band around, for free! That is what I call a thrifty night out!
If you get a chance to see Robin and Joani perform, jump on it!
The music ended all too soon.
The lights came up and made the evening enchanting.
If you are in the area check out our fantastic city. Meet up at the Fountain.
You will not be sorry.
