Saturday Night in the Marigny

Last Saturday afternoon, Kenny went to help Nola and Nopsi clean out some of Grammy and Bop’s house, and the boys and I went off on our own adventure. I promised Riley a trip to Toys ‘R Us to spend his Christmas gift cards. Guess what we came home with a lot of?


He’s a tiny bit Lego-obsessed these days. And he’s already blown through putting together most of these sets. But he is one happy wonk potatoes. Can’t you tell?

Later that afternoon, Nola came to pick me up and we headed down to QP and James’s apartment for a night in the Marigny. The four of us had tickets to a performance at the Marigny Opera House, and we went for drinks and dinner first. The view from their building’s rooftop was spectacular that night.



Dinner was at Arabella, where pasta reigns and everything is made from scratch. Our meal was delicious, but how could you not love a place where one of the table flags is a picture of Bill Murray declaring that you’re awesome?

After dinner, as we were walking up to the Marigny Opera House, which happens to be an old church (and the place where Solange Knowles got married), we spotted our main reason for attending: Kirk! He danced in a contemporary performance set to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. The setting was charming and intimate, and the music was familiar and wonderful. Always great to see Kirk, and so hard to believe it’s been almost 20 years since we’ve known each other.





This day also happened to be Grams’ birthday, and I honored her by wearing her pearl bracelet. I hope she was looking down on us and enjoying the performance too.


Thanks for a fun night out, Nola, QP, and James. Let’s do it again sometime soon!
