| Food and Drink Board|| Beer "review"-Shotgun Betty and Sweet Action - Tigertown in ATL on 4/4/13 at 12:35 pm|
Lonerider - Shotgun Betty: a 5.6 Hefeweizen I am not the biggest wheat fan, but this was very good and worth a try.
Sixpoint - Sweet Action: a 5.2 It is apparently a "blend" of pale ale, wheat and cream ale. Also worth a try.
Any of you had either of these?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Viking cooking class - Tigertown in ATL on 1/7/13 at 9:11 pm|
finally took one this Saturday.
I really enjoyed it. Learned to cook:
mozzarella stuffed chicken breast (the trimming the chicken and stuffing procedure was the best part)

| Food and Drink Board|| Low fat, low carb cereal without aspartame? - Tigertown in ATL on 1/3/13 at 1:14 pm|
Anyone know of cereal that would fit this? I bought the Publix version of All Bran (basically just sticks) because the fat and carb content was so low.
Got it home and realized it had aspartame in it.
| Food and Drink Board|| Guinness Black Lager - Tigertown in ATL on 1/1/13 at 10:40 am|
If you like Guinness and enjoy a good lager this is a good beer.
It has the dark color and nice bitter finish of the classic with the mouth feel of a lager.
Good alternative to a Pale Ale if you are not wanting so much citrus taste.
I should have tried this sooner. ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Sunkist Naval Oranges are yuck - Tigertown in ATL on 12/30/12 at 1:40 pm|
I'm done buying those crappy things.
They are either dried up or have some sort of nasty taste.
I'm going with juice oranges from now on. Even if you get a bad one, at least they are less expensive. ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Anyone coming to ATL this weekend? Here's a rec - Tigertown in ATL on 12/27/12 at 10:05 am|
Give Adele's a try. They are on the north end of town but they are big LSU supporters and host LSU games. Chef owner and his wife are in the house and very friendly.
They have Saints viewings on Sundays so, I don't go near the place then. :lol:...
| More Sports Board|| Opinion sought from non Falcons or Saints fans - Tigertown in ATL on 11/30/12 at 7:51 am|
What are your thoughts on Ryan and the Falcons?
I'm not "sold" (like most of the country), and last night was a perfect example of why.
Ryan played poorly, whether him or OL or scheming is debatable. And against a defense that is mediocre at best.

I love coleslaw, but it is loaded with fat making stuff.
So I tried something new and it came out bitter.
Here are the ingredients:

| Food and Drink Board|| Beer and Scotch (not mixed)-Choose for me.-Update - Tigertown in ATL on 11/28/12 at 10:52 am|
I have a date tonight.
Want to have a draft first then a scotch.
Many of the drafts I have had, and I am not going to go for an 8% beer, or Miller etc. so I have eliminated them from contention.
Abita “Restoration” Pale Ale
Breckenridge Vanilla Porter
| Food and Drink Board|| cranberry sauce alternative - Tigertown in ATL on 11/22/12 at 7:54 am|
In case you didn't think about it, that wonderful canned cranberry sauce is a weight loss nightmare. I love the stuff. Only reason I care about turkey.
Weight watchers has an alternative. Cranberry relish. I made some and I can't wait to try the turkey with it. Only 1/4 the points of the canned s...
| Outdoor Board|| Pelicans on the LSU lake. - Tigertown in ATL on 11/19/12 at 9:47 am|
Anyone know anything about this?
In my years at LSU I never saw this. Yesterday morning there were hundreds of pelicans feeding. They were all packed in together on the north end of the university lake.
It was really phenomenal to see....
| Food and Drink Board|| Tsunami short review - Tigertown in ATL on 11/19/12 at 9:45 am|
Went to Tsunami on Friday night.
While it is a bit hipster, it is worth going. The view is really nice, with the bridge lit up. And with the TS lights on, it was a bonus.
The sushi was good. Not fantastic, but good.
The rolls were fun and innovative. I especially liked the Biggus (Panko oy...

Went to the Rendevouz for BBQ in Memphis this weekend.
Tried the Ghost River offering, and it was a dang fine brew. Wish I could buy it, but I think it is only in draft right now.
If you are ever in Memphis, give it a try....

It is sort of a review, but mostly just my weekend food experience.
[u]Mason's Grill[/u]-lunch Friday. I had a half dozen oysters and the cajun shrimp burger. Oysters were small but good. Ordered the burger medium rare. It was cooked perfectly. Overall it was very good, but could have been better...

Saturday night after the game we were looking for some grub.
Decided to meet at Chipotle. Closed!
Five Guys. Closed!
The line for Canes was super long, so we go to Jack. Even though the sign said open until 2, it was closed except the drive through. So we go to the drive through and they sa...

I went to Kroger yesterday and checked them.
$5.99 a six. Just like Bud and Miller, etc.
SNPA, Sweetwater, Terrapin, etc. were $8.99 a six.
In a previous Yuengling thread I said I'd check it out. I admit I was wrong....
| Food and Drink Board|| Food Trucks - Tigertown in ATL on 9/24/12 at 10:07 am|
I went the food truck village here in Atlanta yesterday.
Limited selection. Only 3 savory dish trucks. BBQ, Cajun and Gyros.
My question is whether food trucks are notoriously slow, and is that just part of the deal?
These were very slow....

I went there to watch the game on Saturday night. LSU Atlanta lists it as a viewing location. The game wasn't on TV here so I decided to go.
Arrived about 30 minutes before kickoff with a party of 5. No reservations (didn't know they took them).
The restaurant is smallish, with a nice bar and...

Thank you for indulging me this week as I ask a lot of questions. I've been coming back to BR very regularly for 4 years now, but always just with my kids to see my kids.

| Food and Drink Board|| Any romantic bars in BR? (especially with a view) - Tigertown in ATL on 9/5/12 at 7:51 am|
I'm looking for somewhere nice to go and have a cocktail on Friday night.
It doesn't have to be super fancy. And if it is in a restaurant or hotel, that is ok too.
I was hoping the L Auberge would have a rooftop bar to take advantage of the river, but it does not appear that it does.
