Yeah, it’s hot in New Orleans in June. We’re not going to deny it. You could chargrill an oyster on the sidewalk if you were so inclined, but we have a better idea. Get yourself a big frozen daiquiri and walk around one of these festivals in the Vieux Carré. What? You’d rather stay home and mow the lawn? (We didn’t think so.) But here’s the best part. Hotel Provincial is offering special summer savings. If you book from June 1 and through August 31, you’ll get 10% off your room rate, a buy one get one free drink coupon, and $10 off parking. For reservations, call 504-581-4995. Mention this offer to receive the discounted rate.
