| Money Talk|| Beginner's Tactics for Investing - Young and Self-Employed - GaryMyMan on 6/24/14 at 9:24 am|
I need some basic advice. I'm self-employed and have no idea how to invest money. I have a few more years of student loan payments left @ 6.8% but I would also like to dip my toes into investment opportunities. My goals for the investment would be for a retirement account and I would also like to le...

I just started using a work computer without ad block and had no idea how tailored Google banner ads had become. Back in the day it was always just random crap no one would ever click on. The last four on the left side of this screen have been for the brand of pants that I am currently wearing, the ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Need a FQ location for a Cocktail Reception/Party - GaryMyMan on 5/28/14 at 11:07 am|
I'm looking for a place to host a cocktail party this summer in the French Quarter. Ideally, I would start off with a tab, say $1,000-$2,000 and it would be a cash bar thereafter. Probably 100 people or so. Extra points given for scenery or view - not looking for the upstairs of Razoo's. :cheers:
| O-T Lounge|| How can I learn to drive stick today? - GaryMyMan on 4/12/14 at 12:26 pm|
Yes, my father failed me and never taught me to drive stick as a child. It's a skill I'd like to learn, preferably today or tomorrow. My first thought was a rental, but apparently the agencies are wise to this and no one here rents manuals. Second thought is to use this as an excuse to buy a CJ-5......

American Pale Ale is my go-to beer these days. The standard has been Sierra Nevada for a while, but I'm not so sure anymore. I have enjoyed Envie when I've made trips to New Orleans to get some but after trying it head-to-head against Shreveport's Great Raft Commotion, I have to say Commotion kicks ...

One of the most interesting aspects of True Detective for me is the beautiful scenery. Whoever scouted the filming locations for this series is a damn genius and I'm surprised there hasn't been an Advocate or other news article talking about where all they filmed - IMDB just says "New Orleans." I ha...

The life sentence was for attempted murder of the boyfriend of a girl he had a crush on. This kid was smart enough to steal a yellow Lamborghini and keep it hidden for a year - even though he drove it - but dumb enough to be a crazy beta douche who tried to kill a guy for being with the girl he had ...
