Before everyone arrived, my friend Patrick walked over from his architect firm down the street and helped me set up and "open" the wine, so really I had two wine and cheese parties.
Saturday was one of the first days in a long time that wasn't booked solid. I had a lot to do around the house, but in the afternoon we headed out to pick a friend's figs. We have a nice swap going: I pick their fruit; we split the preserves. Unfortunately, the figs were nowhere near ripe, but since we were already out, David and I decided to check out the newly-expanded Crescent Park. It's in the Marigny right on the river.
