| Outdoor Board|| Has anyone used their CCC toll tag in Leeville lately? - Contender54 on 7/7/13 at 2:33 pm|
I'm heading to Grand Isle this week and figured the OB might know this. The Geauxpass website says that my CCC toll tag will work, but their website seems outdated and I've heard that the toll on the way to Grand Isle has caused problems for a few people.
| 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.
