| Food and Drink Board|| Spin Off: Best Lunch Specials in BR - beauxkner on 9/29/14 at 12:41 pm|
Spin off from the Hidden Gems thread, where the $12.00 Nino's lunch got me thinking. Where are some of the best lunch specials in BR?
Some hard to beat:
Diguilios: $8.95 for Spaghetti/Meatball, Lasagna, Chicken Picatta, or Chicken Cacciatore w/ a house salad
Stroubes: $10.95 daily specials...

Headed down to visit the WTC Memorial today and wanted to grab lunch nearby. A rooftop or nice view would be preferred. Something non-touristy if at all possible.

I have a pair of elephant skin Justin's passed down to me from my Dad, which I had re-soled about a year & 1/2 ago at Militello's. Never heard anything bad about them, and my Dad, who has lived here his entire life told me to use them. Quite frankly, they did a poor job and the repair/re-condition...

Thinking about getting into some woodworking to make some acadian-style pieces for my house. Where would I be able to find some cypress around BR?

When I bought my truck, it already had an aftermarket HID kit installed. One of my headlights quit working this weekend, so I brought it to my mechanic to see if he could figure out the wiring situation. He removed the assembly and told me the bulb was burnt out, but it seems no one in town stocks...

Looking for recommendations for my 2009 Z71 Silverado. Right now I have 285/65/18 BFG A/T's which are in need of replacement. The two rears are in decent shape, but the fronts are pretty worn.

Has anyone put the compact TLR-4 on a XDM 9 or comparable full-size pistol? I know it's made for a sub-compact, but for the price, it would be hard to beat the TLR-4 for a laser/LED combo. I will yield the remainder of my time to the infinitely resourceful OB.

When I processed my deer a couple weeks back, I made about 12 lbs of 60/40 ground venison/chuck roast. I pulled the first 1.5lb bag out last night to make some deer burgers and they came out chewy. My guests didn't think they were bad, but I hold my food to a slightly higher standard. They weren'...
