Tonight was a reception for the upcoming show of "Vaudechamp in New Orleans." Next Wednesday is the official signing of a book (of same name) by Author William Keyse Rudolph. The show consists primarily of New Orleans family portraits painted by Jean-Joseph Vaudechamp (1790 - 1864). Finally, the Historic New Orleans Collection is celebrating the opening of an addition to its Williams Research Center located on Chartres in the French Quarter.

My family treated me to dinner at the Riche restaurant at Harrah's Hotel. In spite of our familiarity with some French words on the menu we still had to ask questions. The food was very rich.
