Depending on how much booze you can drink and how many tomatoes you can eat, the Summer Harvest Gala Creole Tomato Kick Off Party might be a good deal.

Cane and Table, one of the hottest craft cocktail spots in New Orleans will be hosting the opening reception; go ahead and pull out a hand-timer and tell the barkeep you want a Ramos Gin Fizz shaken for exactly 11 minutes, then stick a dollar in the jar, it'll be worth the experience.

Chef Justin DeVillier is rounding off a team of chefs that will execute the family-style, sit-down dinner after the cocktail party. We predicted the local boy would win big back on the most recent Top Chef but were proven wrong when the good cook was sent packing.

His shrimp salad was the culprit. That and a pack of wiry LSU freshmen who turned their nose up at such big city fancery.

The supper will be paired with Abita beers from their Harvest series.

The Creole String Beans will be providing the musical entertainment
