Perfect weather to appreciate the arts or nature (Jul. 31-Aug. 1)

July 30, 2009

This weather is so perfect for outdoor events. Last weekend we couldn’t get over the exceptionally mild night we enjoyed on a downtown plaza watching an all-female Macbeth. I didn’t blog about it in advance, but it turns out there were a few kids there, mostly teens, and they seemed to be appreciative. If you get a chance this weekend (Jul. 31-Aug. 1), head on down to see it at Old Post Office Plaza at 7 p.m.

We’re heading into the last few weeks of most outdoor concert series too, so my calendar is packed with notes about favorites like Live on the Levee tomorrow and Saturday, Lafayette Square on Saturday (Aug. 1) and new, eclectic additions like More Than Coffee tomorrow (July 31).

It’s also great camping weather — and I wish we could get around to doing more of it this year!  If you’d like to too, check out the Boy Scouts’ guide to camping spots throughout the region, downloadable in Word or PDF form here.
