Slippery People or Take Me to the River IMO

I've been four times previously, each plagued by food and/or service issues. Went Friday night to give it one last try and it finally lived up to its reputation.

No wonder he ain't in charge no more. With that kind of criminal enterprise, 25-30% is absolutely within reason. His failure to understand the basic economic atmosphere got an innocent man murdered.
Rat bait indeed....

Knew a number of people who were heaping praises on them before and after their show at the HOB in New Orleans last week, so I checked them out.
In all sincerity, that is some terribly awful music. The song Fitzpleasure is worse than 1994 by Jason Aldean. And then I read where it took the band fi...
