| Food and Drink|| A few recent meals in London I:Pollen St Social/Gordon Ramsay With pics! - coolpapaboze on 7/14/15 at 3:45 pm|
I was in London a couple of weeks ago for business and went a few days early with my wife and did some touristy stuff. In between the touristy stuff, we had some nice meals. I never take pics in restaurants, but since I apparently fricked up the NYC Chicken crawl thread by not taking any pics, I ho...View Topic - Replies (4)

A couple of months ago I was complaining about the scarcity of quality fried chicken around me and a buddy suggested going in to the city and doing a fried chicken crawl. Since we made plans a Popeyes has opened here, so there is now the possibility of engaging in a regular and glorious fried chick...View Topic - Replies (12)

For some reason, they seem to be on cable all the time lately, especially on the weekend. Now I love me some Bond, James Bond, but I have to say, most of the old ones are riddled with shitty dubbing, and horrific "special' effects to the point that I often find myself laughing out loud. Regardless...

I found it to be pretty consistent with the...View Topic - Replies (8)
