I'm planning to have a bourbon tasting with a few friends. So far I have Bookers, Eagle Rare 10, Elmer T Lee, Wild Turkey Rare Breed, and 1792. Anything else you guys would recommend? I'm not looking for suggestions like pappy and Stagg or anything else damn near impossible to find. Also, any ideas...

I've always considered myself somewhat of a space nerd. Whenever I come across a show like The Universe on tv, I always end up watching it. Well, I recently decided that I want to buy a telescope just to play around with at home. Before anyone asks, no, I don't think I'm going to discover anything. ...

I'll be going to the Dynamo match on 6/30. I was just wondering what your recommendations are for parking? This will be the first professional match I attend and I'm getting pretty excited about it.

It was a great season and I already can't wait for next season. I love that it just ended yesterday but we are only about 3 months away from more epl. I guess I need chose a country to pull for in Euro 2012 to tide myself over...

| Food and Drink Board|| Where is the best bourbon selection near New Orleans? - TheDude on 4/8/12 at 12:08 am|
I decided today to go out in search of a good bourbon. I've had most of the easy to find ones like knob creek, blantons, makers, basil Hayden, Elijah Craig 18, and I regularly keep Bookers at home. I really want to take a step up in quality though. Looking for either pappy van winkle 20, or the Jeff...

I've always really enjoyed watching the world cup. I also use to play for a few years when I was younger. I'd like to watch the sport more often but I just have a hard time caring about games that don't involve the mens NT. Living in south Louisiana, I have no reason to pull for any club teams. ...

Applebees is the worst one I got. I even got a couple to fast food joints but I rank them higher than Applebees. My wife and I used it last night. Its pretty rare that my wife and I go into a restaurant thinking, "Well, lets get this over with."...

I'm looking to get a new camera. I want a good one but don't need a SLR. Am I correct in saying that the difference between 10 and 12 mega-pixels doesn't really matter unless I'm trying to make a poster? And what is your opinion of this camera and price?

I was in the area a couple of weeks ago so my wife and I took the tour. I've always prefered thier beer to most of Abita's but the experience of taking the tour is much better in Abita.
The main reason is because of the hospitality area/gift shop. The area at the Spoetzl brewery in Shiner is ...

My wife is interested in starting to play golf. She goes to the driving range with me fairly often but its obvious that my clubs are to long for her.
