Insider's Look at Upcoming New Orleans Attractions - Summer Comes to a Close
Summer Comes to a Close with Culinary Adventures, Preseason Football and a Labor Day Getaway
The summers in New Orleans may be sizzling, but that doesn’t keep the city from thriving with an endless array of events to suit every visitor. Whether it’s gastronomic expeditions throughout New Orleans’ historic neighborhoods or kicking off football season with a bang under “The Dome,” fun-filled adventures await in the Big Easy.
This August, celebrate the city’s extensive culinary prowess during COOLinary New Orleans, an event that invites locals and visitors to partake in specially prepared prix fixe menus from some of the city’s most renowned restaurants. At The Grill Room, guests can indulge in Chef Daniel Causgrove’s contemporary Southern cuisine with Louisiana flare, from blue crab bisque and peach-arugula salad to country ham wrapped Mississippi rabbit loin or local market fish with corn maque choux.
Sports fans will also find themselves right at home with the start of the NFL’s preseason. Witness the New Orleans Saints take on the New England Patriots on August 22 for their first preseason home game. Before the game, guests can stop by the Polo Club Lounge to enjoy a cocktail and one of the small plate selections from the extensive menu. Reminiscent of the private clubs of England with its rich furnishings and dark woods, the Polo Club Lounge is the perfect tailgating alternative.
Finally, as the summer starts to wind down and the Labor Day holiday approaches, get away for Decadence and stay at New Orleans’ most gracious TAG approved LGBT hotel. An annual celebration of LGBT culture that attracts over 160,000 participants from all over the world, Decadence begins on September 2 and includes block parties, walking tours, karaoke contests and, of course, parades.
