| Food and Drink Board|| Walk On's NOLA - Contender54 on 11/27/11 at 10:35 am|
We went there for dinner last night (I know, during the Bayou Classic but the place was almost empty.)
I can handle inept/inexperienced waitresses, but....
I have a problem with impotent/inept managers. After getting our drink order wrong for the 3rd or 4th time, (and after the wait...
| Food and Drink Board|| Which Wines have you been drinking? - Contender54 on 5/12/11 at 9:03 pm|
Red Diamond Cabernet Sauvignon.
This used to be my "go to" wine but I haven't opened a bottle in months b/c I've been trying other wines. Last night was the first time in a few months that I o...
| Food and Drink Board|| Wine: Silver Palm Cabernet Sauvignon - Contender54 on 5/5/11 at 9:42 pm|
This is a 2008 Cabernet from California that retails for about $20 a bottle in the New Orleans area.
It was pretty good when I opened it yesterday and it only got better as it had time to breathe.
I just got around to finishing the bottle tonight and I have to say that the wine has held up rea...
| Food and Drink Board|| Crescent City Steakhouse - Contender54 on 5/5/11 at 9:37 pm|
Got the Filet Mignon and shoestring fries there today. :dude:
The service was good and so was the food.
It's a shame the restaurant is in a crappy neighborhood and almost forgotten about b/c I enjoyed the meal.
| Food and Drink Board|| Wines I've had in the past week or so - Contender54 on 5/1/11 at 10:27 pm|
I thought I'd post some of the wine I've had in the past week.
I can't "describe" wine or even critique it, but I enjoy drinking it so here goes.
The Anne Amie 2008 "Cuvee A" Pinot Noir. I think I paid $22 for it. Pinot Noirs aren't usuall...
| Food and Drink Board|| Kilikanoon Wines - Contender54 on 4/14/11 at 10:10 pm|
A local wine store hosted a tasting for Kilikanoon wines yesterday.
It's an Australian winery that I'd never heard of before....but they were all good wines :cheers:
We were able to try 7 or 8 wines, retailing from $13 all the way to $200 per bottle.
The $200 bottle is a Shiraz, evidently from ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Penley Estate Shiraz - Contender54 on 4/3/11 at 9:19 pm|
Another Australian wine for me tonight.
It's the Penley Estate 2008 Shiraz and it goes pretty well with the Theo's Pizza I had for dinner tonight. :cheers:
(the label photo is the '07, but it looks the same as the '08.)
| Food and Drink Board|| Penley Estate Cabernet - Contender54 on 3/29/11 at 7:41 pm|
I just opened a bottle of Penley Estate "Phoenix" 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, from the Coonawarra region of Australia and it is a good wine.
This is only the second bottle I've ever had from this producer (the '07 Shiraz being the first) and both have been great.
I just haven't found any in New O...
| Food and Drink Board|| Opened a bottle of Penfolds tonight - Contender54 on 3/24/11 at 9:29 pm|
I drank alot of Penfolds in college, but I kind of gave it up years ago.
I had a glass at a get-together a few weeks ago and I thought it was pretty good so I picked up a bottle.
It was the Penfolds Koonunga Hill 2008 Shiraz-Cabernet for less than $10.
It's drinking ok. Not great, but not t...
| Food and Drink Board|| Tikal 2008 Amorio Malbec - Contender54 on 3/22/11 at 7:32 am|
I'm not typically a malbec drinker, but I had a few glasses of this wine with a steak on Sunday. Good stuff.
| Food and Drink Board|| The Stump Jump Wine (blend) - Contender54 on 3/20/11 at 10:53 pm|
It's an Australian wine that I opened with dinner last night.
At $10, it's not a bad wine.
Has anyone else had this wine?
I hadn't heard of it until this past weekend....
| O-T Lounge|| State Championship Games - Contender54 on 12/10/10 at 9:02 pm|
Does anyone what happened w/the 2A game between Curtis & Evangal?
I heard it was 7 - 7 at the half, but that was a few hours ago.
