Wanting to take the wife to a nice island for our 15 year anniversary. I want to go to a nice island, not a place where you have to look at a shithole if you venture off the the resort property.
Not looking for one of the cheesy generic all inclusives either.
I'm leaning toward Grand Cayman beca...

Just had an odd situation with paying and tipping. I just had appetizers and drinks at a tiny arse place and the payment transaction was done on an I Pad.
So I swipe for the hot bartender after she shows me the total. No problem. Then she turns the screen to me so I can choose my tip. Only choices...

I've only met one person. He was a little older with no kids.
I think about this from time to time when people bitch about living from pay check to pay check and being broke. I wonder how many people out there realized that one could survive without having to pay for tv....

I need to get across the river and down to Belle Chasse this morning.
I'm a little confused in reading the report on road closures as it doesn't say that the CCC is closed, but it does say that the west bank expressway is closed.
Am I good to go across the bridge and exit at La 23?

Made my first visit yesterday and I was suprised at how nice it was. I sat at the bar and had a few drinks and ended up placing a to-go order for the family.
Food was loaded potato soup, some kind of enchilada pasta, and a cheese burger. All was very good.
The cocktail menu was small but interesti...

Thinking of making that our beach trip spot early this summer and I'm unsure if I should book through the resort or use VRBO.
The resort wants around $500 a night for the two bedroom units, which is a bit much.
I am going to want to pay for my kids to use the special beach area and inflatable sh...

Looking for some information about the show for those that have been. I checked a few hotel prices on the beach and it is beyond stupid prices as expected for that weekend.
If I were to book something in Orange Beach or Navarre and drive over in the morning, would this be worth it? I'm concerned ...

I read a little article the other day that says they are again changing the lay out of the food booths to try and help with the crowd issues. I think they said something about the booths being on intersections of the side streets or something.
Do you think this will help at all?

What are the areas of the state where the west bank is better than the east bank? I can't think of anywhere south of Baton Rouge where that is the case.

I saw it was a good day for N.O. threads, and the usual stupid bull shite was posted. So I'm guessing at two or three of the refineries around Baton Rouge and areas south, as well as at the parish offices in Livingston, etc, there has to be a standard course taught about N.O.

Who is going to win this one? I'm assuming Curtis.
Is it easier to try to go by Curtis to get advance tickets or just get them at the stadium?
Also, for Tad Gormley(sp), is there an area nearby to pay to park for a high school game?
Only reason I'm asking is because I'm bringing an older man wi...
