| Food and Drink Board|| Central American Restaurant - Jones Creek. Any info? - RaginCajunz on 11/29/14 at 3:40 pm|
I rarely drive down Jones Creek but I did so today. I noticed that the Arzi's by Ralphs is now different. The sign was in a hard to read script (especially since it caught me off guard as I flew by) but I did notice the sans-serif text under said "Central American Cuisine."
Any ideas what the...
| Music Board|| Any good Vinyl Black Friday sales going on? - RaginCajunz on 11/27/14 at 8:45 pm|
I saw PopMarket is doing a BF sale. Just curious if anyone knows of any other sales that might be worth checking out.
| Political Talk|| Penn & Teller - New Orleans March 13th (Libertarian) - RaginCajunz on 11/21/14 at 10:26 am|
I'm only posting it in this section because they have such a strong libertarian leaning to their shtick. My wife and I saw them in Vegas and it was a great show. It has been a while since they toured, so thought I'd pass the info along. Tickets on sale this morning.
| Food and Drink Board|| Boutin's Chapter 11 - RaginCajunz on 11/17/14 at 10:59 am|
I guess this answers the question many here have asked. How do they stay afloat with mediocre food? The answer, not very well.

| O-T Lounge|| LSU Ticket Security features - RaginCajunz on 11/6/14 at 9:21 am|
Plan on meeting up with a craigslist seller and buying a ticket for the Alabama game. What security features should I look for on a paper ticket?
(hologram, textured metallic areas...etc?)

| O-T Lounge|| Yard Waste in Ascension - RaginCajunz on 11/1/14 at 8:36 pm|
I dug up a bunch of shrubs and clipped a mountain of branches. Not a fan of the giant burnt ring of death in my yard. Is throwing it all into my truck and bringing it to a landfill an option? I see there is one (Colonial Landfill) a bit before the sunshine bridge. ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Boudin Cookoff this weekend in Lafayette - RaginCajunz on 10/23/14 at 12:05 pm|
I try to go each year, but with a 3 week old baby in the house, the trip to Laffy + a crowded environment may not be in the cards. It's been well worth the trip each year though. Much better than a wine tasting. Where else can you try 20+ top boudins side by side?
| Food and Drink Board|| Opinions on Louisiana made Rums (brand prefs?) - RaginCajunz on 9/23/14 at 8:09 pm|
I'm considering buying one of each of the Louisiana made rums, but before I do that just curious what the food board thinks of them. I've only had the New Orleans brand so far and liked it. I should probably add that my wife has a strong preference towards clear, so that is most likely what will b...
| Political Talk|| Don Lemon discussing Automatic weapons RE:Ferguson - RaginCajunz on 8/20/14 at 10:28 pm|
I just paused on CNN flipping around and watched Don Lemon argue that anyone can buy an automatic weapon, and that he has purchased them. The guest just tried to explain how wrong he was. Lemon then argued that it was semantics and an automatic weapon was one that allowed you to fire off a number o...
| Food and Drink Board|| Any Dishwasher Recommendations? - RaginCajunz on 8/19/14 at 7:41 pm|
I'm about at my wit's end with my current dishwasher. It is the best, worst dishwasher ever. It is whisper quiet and cleans very well.

I passed the old KFC on Airline today and they have "Now Hiring Schlotzsky's" signs up in the windows and have been doing some construction work on the building.
Just passing it along. I enjoyed their sandwiches, but they had a near-100% track record of screwing up my order. ...
| O-T Lounge|| Refueling or Jet/Jet Escort? (Pville flyover with pictures) - RaginCajunz on 7/29/14 at 7:59 pm|
I was out taking pictures with my toddler and trying to get him to say funny things on video and he spotted a "star." From the naked eye the planes looked like one, they were high enough up and catching a lot of reflection from the sun. I thought maybe refueling as I looked from the ground, but th...

Donuts in this city largely suck IMO. I don't eat them often, and that has changed to almost never since living in this part of the state. I grew up with Ruddock's in Crowley. They are still the best and will always be my yardstick for donuts. I've tried Sam's in Walker. While they were hot and...
| Food and Drink Board|| Fig Time - fresh picked and now canned (lots of pictures) - RaginCajunz on 7/20/14 at 12:07 am|
The wife, kiddo and I went to Opelousas today and picked figs at Beaucoupe Figs. It was a fun afternoon once we dodged the rain. I recommend it if you are in need of fresh figs and don't mind picking yourself. The guy must have about a hundred large fig trees out there. We paid $4/gallon.

My Foodsaver has served me well for the past 8+ years, but finally bit the dust this morning. Is there any real difference between the models out there?
