Harrah's Finale Drawing

While you can already be earning entries into the drawing pool, you have until 7 p.m. on Friday to become involved.

Sazerac Cocktail Week at Sazerac House
Celebrate sazeracs all week long at Sazerac House on Magazine. The sazerac drink is a New Orleans native, so it only seems fitting there's an entire bar dedicated to it. And an entire week to celebrate it, too! Even better? A portion of all profit will be given back to the city that made the drink, benefitting the tremendous organization, Feed the Second Line. 101 Magazine Street
