Lestat left a message for Marius in New Orleans just days before Halloween

Lestat left a message for Marius in a New Orleans alley on a wall opposite the cathedral.

Lestat leaves a message for Marius in an alley on the wall opposite New Orleans’ cathedral.

Of course I knew Anne Rice lives in New Orleans, but I didn’t know Lestat was still trying to catch up with Marius down there.

Marius – We missed you. Please come next year – Lestat

I found this chalk message from Lestat to Marius on Oct. 26. It was on a wall in Pirate Alley, on the opposite side of the alley from St. Louis Cathedral.

I don’t know exactly when Lestat wrote it, or why he carries chalk, but the message appeared to me on the same day as the annual Krewe of Boo Halloween parade.

Coincidence? I think not.
