My question, geared I suppose towards locals and those who visit in the late summertime is not about how you 'survive' the heat - but rather are there any particular drinking/culinary things particular to the late summer that you look forward to?

We will be visiting again this August, and while I have a preliminary idea of places we would like to visit again or for the first time, I am curious if there are any particular traditions that you have specific to this timeframe?

Most of the literature I have come across regarding summertime in New Orleans speaks mostly to how oppressive and unpleasant the weather is, and I somehow doubt that people who live there hide in their homes for 3 months - there must be some fun and interesting things food/drink/travel wise that occur only in this time of the year that people look forward to.

Thanks for your time,
