The festival that honors one of New Orleans’ most famous (and sometimes infamous) drinks— The Daiquiri — is back. This September, the New Orleans Daiquiri Festival will become New Orleans’ Daiquiri Season. With 30 days of special events and tastings across the city, there will be an opportunity for everyone to enjoy the sweet relief of this New Orleans classic during the month of September.

Throughout September, bartenders around the city will offer their own unique take on the Frozen Daiquiri at their bars and restaurants, and at special tasting events. September was selected as the Daiquiri Season to give locals and visitors some cool relief from warm temperatures and to help give local bars and restaurants a boost during what can often be a slow time of year.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

All that time spent playing Nintendo as a kid is about to pay off. On September 13 from 10 pm to 1 am, Café Henri is hosting a classic Nintendo speed competition as part of Daiquiri Season 2016. Can you beat Super Mario Brothers in record time? Can you knock out Bald Bull in a matter of seconds? Are you a Kung Fu master? Well it’s time to show your skills. Each competition has a $5 buy in with the winner of each taking home the pot. And it wouldn’t be Daiquiri Season without some great specials. Get half off daiquiris ($4.50), half off all cocktails and $6 Henri burgers during the competition. So whether you compete or not, you’ll come away a winner.
