every thing was a awesome as I remember it food wise.
Was with an out of town friend and he kind of was just caught up on wanting to eat meat, so we got that meat platter appetizer and a hanger steak for me and some kind of flap steak for him.
I still love how they can get such a good seasoning ...
| O-T Lounge|| Do cops in your town still show up to direct traffic at busy intersections... - notiger1997 on 3/27/14 at 8:29 am|
when the traffic light goes out?
I'm starting to think that only the state police do this on state hwy's and even they do it rarely.
I went through somewhat busy intersection this morning where I know the light had been out for at least two hours. Already a wreck blocking part of the intersectio...

of the worst kind. Alledged to have stolen $48K from a playground booster club.
Say what you want about the club not having proper controls in place, but this is going to really suck arse for the kids.

I know, bad beer, chain, blah blah.
If you are in the area, show up for the event and buy a few beers. Hell the first one or two might be free.
The deal is, the Crescent City Brew Club lost a bunch of their shite in a fire recently and GB with be donating some of their profits at this event to he...

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?

| Food and Drink Board|| Legacy Kitchen in Metairie - notiger1997 on 1/23/14 at 7:52 am|
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.

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.

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.
