I slept in this morning and didn’t get up until almost 11. At around noon, I walked over to Eisenhower Elementary to vote. The Louisiana governor’s race ended with today’s election. There were also a large number of other positions on the ballot including several other local officials and four constitutional amendments. Educating myself on the election was just like studying for a test.Later this evening, I went to Snug Harbor with Christy to see The New Leviathan Oriental Fox-Trot Orchestra. They play vintage American popular music from the 1890s through the early 1930s. They are an entertaining act and I was curious to see how many of their members they could fit on their cramped stage.Christy arrived 15 minutes after the show started. She said she was waiting for me at Canal Place I guess I should have specified exactly where we were meeting. The show was a lot of fun. Although the music played certainly isn’t anything I’d buy on CD, it’s very entertaining to see performed live with the talent they have. There were 18 musicians on Snug’s tiny stage.After the show, we had dinner at their dining room. A couple parties up front made things unusually loud and it was a little hard to hear conversation. We both had the fried shrimp which was quite decent. It took a while to get it though. Most of the talk over dinner was whatcha-been-up-to stuff since I haven’t seen her in a few months.After dinner we walked a while, through the quarter on Chartres to Canal Street. We stopped at the pelican bar at the Sheraton. We remained there until about one, talking about different things like movies and her Dad’s return to law school. We shared a cab home. Late that evening I talked to Krystle on the phone a short while before bed.
