While it's no surprise that Beyoncé's life is almost always cooler and more lavish than any of ours, it was apparent yet again that she does the most awesome things when we saw photos from her Fourth of July celebrations.
Bey was all smiles for the camera while attending St. Heron's 17 Wards Weekend Wine & Grind for Essence Festival held at Etoile Polaire No. 1 on Saturday in New Orleans, La.
The 33-year-old superstar was joined by her sister Solange Knowles, bestie Kelly Rowland and rapper Missy Elliot. Can you imagine hitting the dance floor with this group of ladies?!
Her hubby Jay Z and Solange‘s husband Alan Ferguson were also in attendance, along with singer Erykah Badu.
Missy performed some of her hits as the crowd enjoyed a variety of cocktails while grooving to the music.
After a fun-filled night in NOLA, Bey & Jay jetted to the Hamptons to finish off their holiday weekend. The pair were spotted grabbing a bite at Highway Restaurant and Bar.
"Bey ordered a cheeseburger but hardly ate. The cheeseburger was almost $20—apparently their security made them leave before they could finish their meal," an eyewitness tells E! News. "Bey looked casual and was wearing denim on denim. Blue (Ivy) was not with them."
The restaurant had no comment.
Yoncé also spent her Sunday rooting on the U.S. women's soccer team (along with many other stars) during the FIFA Women's World Cup final in Vancouver Sunday, where they beat Japan by a score of 5-2. It marked a record third World Cup title for the U.S. women's national team.
Sounds like a pretty eventful weekend!
