NOLA— The Historic New Orleans Collection hosts its ninth annual New Orleans Antiques Forum from August 4-€”7, and this year's theme is "Dinner Is Served: Decorative Arts and Dining in the South," which takes a good look at the style and traditions of the southern dining room including  presentations, guided tours, and more. Registration opens Monday, June 6.

UPTOWN— Kenton's is launching a couple summer dining deals next week, including a new happy hour with half-off Louisiana oysters, select wines and bourbons, plus a special bar menu— with raw bar offerings, flatbread and more—every Sun-Thurs, 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. on the patio and at the bar (launching May 29).  The restaurant will also do a Wednesday barbecue night with meats, two sides, a one ounce taste of Bourbon and a beer for $24, starting June 1. Live music will also debut at the bar on Tuesday evenings starting June 7. [Eaterwire]

NOLA— New Orleans locations of Wendy's are handing out FREE small Frosty treats to all customers on May 30 as well. More info here. [Eaterwire]

MID CITY— Keith Spera reports that this year's Bayou Boogaloo was a success, despite a brief fence controversy and somebody stealing $6,000 from the VIP bar on the closing night.  That being said, the festival "may start charging admission as a way to control growth and guarantee a revenue stream."  [Advocate]
