| Pelicans Talk|| Looking at the Remainder of Schedule - VOR on 3/6/15 at 9:32 am|
I, without getting into specifics, landed on 14 wins and 7 losses if the team continues to play solid basketball.
Am being to optimistic or pessimistic? Does 47 wins get the Pels the 8th spot?...
| Food and Drink Board|| About Dinner Lab - VOR on 3/5/15 at 8:55 am|
I know there was a discussion not too long ago about Dinner Lab. Has anyone tried it? It seems their events are somewhat limited in N.O. A friend convinced me to join yesterday (he gets a credit, etc.).
Anyway, any experience or comments? ...
| Pelicans Talk|| AD May Play Tonight - VOR on 3/4/15 at 7:24 am|
[i]The New Orleans Pelicans could have a lot of help when they begin a three-game homestand Wednesday night against the Detroit Pistons.
All-Star power forward Anthony Davis has been listed as questionable, meaning he could play. Davis has missed the past five games after re-injuring his sprained...
| Pelicans Talk|| Question for Next Season - VOR on 2/26/15 at 9:27 pm|
Let's assume the current roster is pretty much what we have next season. AD has another season and off season under his belt. The team has experience playing together.
Assuming we're lucky and stay relatively healthy, what's this team's potential?...
| Pelicans Talk|| I'm Finally Open Minded When It Comes to Ryno - VOR on 2/26/15 at 3:14 pm|
I've never taken the Anderson "sucks" talk very seriously and still don't. He's still a bargain for the price, although, yes, he's been inconsistent and Monty sometimes relies upon him too much.
But with the addition of Cunningham, QPon and with Babbitt playing well (I realize it could be fool'...
| Pelicans Talk|| Can't go tonight. Tickets available - VOR on 2/25/15 at 3:20 pm|
Have cold and staying in. Let me know if you'll use them. :cheers:...
| Food and Drink Board|| Where should my wife take me for birthday dinner? - VOR on 2/24/15 at 12:05 pm|
I want somewhere new or where I haven't been in awhile. Maybe Gautreau's? I even thought about giving Emerils a shot(been a decade). No August or Lilette (although I like both). Hmmmmmm
Obviously I'm not remembering something "new" while posting??...
| Food and Drink Board|| Willie Mae's on St. Charles - VOR on 2/18/15 at 10:46 pm|
I took off for lunch to run some errands with my wife, and we decided to stop in at Willie Mae's Scotch House Uptown.
It was about 1:30 and not crowded. They had a limited menu because they were re-stocking after Mardi Gras, I assume. Whatever. Both of us had the chicken and it was very good...
| Pelicans Talk|| Nice Article on David West and His Time in N.O. - VOR on 2/13/15 at 7:52 am|
West was always one of my favorite players. I was amused, occasionally, when a fan or two would rip on him for not being great on defense or missing the occasional rebound. All in all, the guy was money in N.O.

Can anyone on this board say what movies were playing on January 1, 2015? Thanks. ...

Let me know...
| Pelicans Talk|| Grantland on AD: Raising the Brow - VOR on 2/5/15 at 9:16 am|
[i]It didn’t look like a spectacular NBA play. Most people just saw a power forward making a typical eight-footer off the glass. But for two men in the arena, it was the most noteworthy shot of the night. One was Anthony Davis, the man who made the shot. The other was Kevin Hanson, the New Orleans P...
| Food and Drink Board|| Have to ask about Izzo's - VOR on 2/2/15 at 7:08 pm|
I'm sure I brought this up when it was announced they were taking over the old Popeye's location, but God knows where that thread is. Anyway, I'm just curious about opinions.
I'm not expecting, say, Kokopelli's (RIP) or City Greens (I think it's pretty damned good for what it is. But is Izzo'...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Sports on 990 AM - VOR on 1/30/15 at 12:24 pm|
I rarely listen to this station but today there was a guy whose voice was immediately recognizable. Said he also has a column on NOLASports. com.
Any idea who he is?...
| Movie/TV Board|| "Force Majeure" in New Orleans - VOR on 1/30/15 at 7:57 am|
For those N.O. cinephiles willing to sit through a movie at Zeitgeist, I heartily recommend "Force Majeure". It's offbeat, and its darkly comic (very darkly).
A Swedish couple on skiing holiday with their two kids encounter a "lanslide" that turns out to be harmless. It's the reaction of the ...

| Pelicans Talk|| Damn, Carlisle Was Bummed - VOR on 1/25/15 at 8:01 pm|
He was really depressed in his press conference. Thought the inbound foul call was bad (really, dude?). And said they fricked up on their inbound to Monta. He should have given more props to AD on that play, imo. Whatever. ...
| Food and Drink Board|| A Sad Report on Purloo - VOR on 1/25/15 at 9:16 am|
Four of us went to dinner last night at Purloo (for those of you don't know, it's and adjunct to the Southern Food and Beverage Museum on OCH).
We really wanted to like it. But we were all disappointed.
The space is nicely done, with very high ceilings and a bit of an industrial look. The ...
