Visiting family over the holidays I had a chance to try a few places that have opened since we moved away.
Ruffinos - I tried to approach this with an open mind given that many folks on this board really like this place. I didn't really care for it. I found it to be pretty consistent with the...

Chans, the wine store in the shopping center at 98 and the road that turns into the trans bay bridge, has opened a gastro pub, CraftBar, that has some ridiculous number of beers on tap. It's right next to Chans, on the back side of the building. I went tonight to check out the menu, and it looks p...

..and i think it's probably ruined me for any other type of hunting. Was in the Entre Rios province, on the Parana river. Shot dove and perdiz over five days. Not quite the volume of birds as Cordoba, but plenty enough birds for me, and I really like the area as it is more diverse in terms of thi...

Characterizing the game last night as a "franchise defining win" for the Falcons. If having the other team give you the game after kicking your arse up and down the field for three quarters is franchise defining, well ok then :lol:...

[quote]The “30 Rock” actor unleashed on a photographer who was blocking the entrance to his apartment building, yelling, “I want you to shut the f**k up and get out of here.

| Food and Drink Board|| Interview with Donald Link on Eater.com - coolpapaboze on 5/25/12 at 4:16 pm|
Really impressed with him and he really articulates how his approach translates to exceptional food. I really enjoy his simple straightforward take on country food, done with fresh ingredients dictated by the seasons. I wish more restaurants in LA took this approach.
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Any big recruits we've lost in recent years that panned out? - coolpapaboze on 1/17/12 at 12:21 pm|
Seems like a lot of the kids from LA that went elsewhere, or who switched didn't live up to expectations. I don't follow recruiting as closely as a lot of you, but are there any who went elsewhere and really blew up? ...

I moved before they opened and this is the first time I have been back to Lafayette since. I have been twice this week and I really like it. I like the short menu, the wine list is well edited and reasonably priced, and I thought the food was also relatively inexpensive for the quality. The only ...

Spent the last week in San Francisco and had some good meals.
