Was it The Voice that inspired him to draw this piece or was it Satchmo? Let’s just say Cee Lo Green and Louis Armstrong go together.
Hanging out at Amelie’s French Bakery is always a treat (pun intended). Not only do you get to immerse yourself in the styles of Paris while inhaling the aroma from all the pastries. Oh wait, I meant to say inhaling the pastries. Okay, now we’re good. You often times will stumble upon some wonderful happenings. I know of a couple that got married there, Mr. Nix and I have listened to jazz and folk music performances and someone mentioned there was a photo booth. I’ll be on the lookout for that one next time.
This one occasion, we stumbled upon a Wednesday night art event. I’m not sure if they still have them in the courtyard, but back in February this piece came to life. It happened after listening to my show Voices From The Community, watching The Voice the Monday following and then partaking of some Amelie’s deliciousness while sitting in the courtyard.
I highly recommend all three.
