Dear Eventful Readers,

Pierre and I attended two Katrina events. The first event was at the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas to honor all the international support that came to New Orleans following Katrina.

We then headed to the Saenger Theatre for a splendid Katrina 10 – NOLA Honors event. It was to honor everyone that helped rebuild the city below sea level. The soul queen of New Orleans Irma Thomas and funky piano player and songwriter Allen Toussaint entertained us while Harry Connick, Jr, and Branford Marsalis were the great hosts of the night. What a duo!

We ventured to the Davenport Lounge at The Ritz-Carlton and enjoyed some Jazz by Jeremy Davenport. Kermit Ruffins joined for a song or two.

We were accompanied with Betsie Gambel and her friend Daryl. It was another great night in the city.

Let the good times roll,
