QUARTER—August is Tea Month at Salon by Sucre. Every Thursday all month long, bar maven Beth McCaskey's tea cocktails are two for the price of one. Additionally, from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, the $35 afternoon tea service (including a choice of beverage) is two for one. [EaterWire]

CBD—If you're gonna sip a fancy drink, it might as well be for a good cause: The Windsor Court Hotel has a new gin, blueberry, and strawberry cocktail called Elysian Fields Forever, and half of the proceeds will go to the St. Bernard Project, a nonprofit that was originally founded in 2006 to rebuild homes post-Katrina. The drink is available in the Polo Club Lounge, at the cocktail bar, and by the pool all month long. [EaterWire]

CITYWIDE—We've rounded up the hottest patios of the season, but one can never have too many al fresco dining options: Here are 11 great balconies for eating and drinking, including Dat Dog's, Muriel's, and Root Squared. []

CBD—If you plan on attending Emeril's Boudin, Bourbon & Beer Festival at Champions Square this fall, best buy those tickets now: An early-bird special of $85 is currently underway. Per, they'll go up to $99 on September 1 and will be $125 at the door (provided they don't sell out first). [BB&B]
