We have 3 in BR that I am familiar with, I list them in my order of preference:
Al-Noor Indian Cuisine on George O'Neil
Dempsey's on Jefferson
Taco Boudreaux on Sherwood
Of course a toxic waste dump is preferable to Pizza Hut, possible the worst pizza that people actually pay money for, but ...
| Movie/TV Board|| "Her" my clunker of the year. - andouille on 1/25/14 at 8:10 pm|
How did this get an Academy nomination? I was drawn in because of the technology hook, man falls in love with his OS. But this long drawn out borefest could be watched with your eyes closed, 95% of the movie is just dialogue between one character you can see and one you can't.
Wife loves romance...

At Sam's I pay $4.88 per, after we eat the chicken I make 3-4 quarts of chicken stock out of the carcass, A 48 oz box of Swanson's chicken broth is $4.50, $4.50 that I don't have to spend.

They search people for every once of contraband, no backpacks. no water, had to get permission to bring a kids cough syrup in, but they let in a frickin' dog!

4th down, all you have to do is knock it down, a DB will always go for glory. It is a no brainier, which is what most DB's have.
| Food and Drink Board|| Bad Service? - andouille on 10/31/13 at 3:41 pm|
I read a lot of reviews that complain about service at many of the different places that we go to, never once have I had the alleged bad service myself. I think that some people just don't know how to get good service.
1. Dress appropriately, don't be the worst dressed people in the place. Jo...

The latest CNN poll shows 87% oppose the Washington Redskins name change. Has this finally broken the back of the nanny state run media telling everyone how we should behave? Has this stupidity finally run it's course?
The nannies told us colleges had to change their nicknames, the deaf were hear...
| Tiger Rant|| Best coordinators in college football? - andouille on 10/13/13 at 9:16 am|
You have to hand it to Les, he sees a problem and he fixes it. A lot of coaches never fix problems because that means admitting they made a mistake in the first place. When we had Muschamp and Jimbo we were in pretty good shape, but Chavis and Cameron are lights out the best we've ever had....

Trying to figure out what board to post this on, I guess since B. Hussein Obama uttered his stupidity, this is a good place.
All the BS going on in Washington, the US and the world and someone gives a shite about this? It's a nickname of a sports team, a not very good sports team. It just doesn't...

It seems like these mandated rain delays are growing exponentially. I may be wrong, but I can't find any incidents where players or fans have been struck by lightning in a football stadium. I can see caution at someplace like Alex Box where players are standing in an open field wearing metal spike...

Last year it was the infamous replacement refs in the Seattle game, today they gave the 49ers an extra down and the scored, the difference in the game.. The Pack had a half to get it back, but with the razor thin margins in the NFL no team can afford to have the refs give away touchdowns. ...

Recently I decided to turn on the TV during weekdays, I do a lot of work from home, and I leaned a lot about this demographic:
1. These people have a lot of car wrecks. A big portion of the advertising is aimed at victims of accidents, appartently lawyers and chiropracters can help at no charge....
| Food and Drink Board|| Crumbled/.grated Cheeses - andouille on 8/18/13 at 12:59 pm|
Who buys this crap? It never tastes anything like the intended original product. You can't take a second to crumble feta or bleu cheese? It's crumbly anyway.
Some supermarkets have no whole cheese, its all sliced, grated or crumbled, at about twice the price per pound. I had to go to three stores...

You never had to go to 3 or 4 stores looking for something, if it existed in the free world, it was on Schwegmann's shelves. The one on Airline Hwy and Labarre in Metairie had a bar in the front of the store to get a beer or highball while you shopped, we used to have to push the grocery cart for my...

This recipe had to beat out entries with multiple uses for cream cheese, jalapenos and bacon.
Nothing like using fresh wholesome ingredients in a recipe, like maybe fresh corn or fresh potatoes, why bother when a can opener is so convenient. Actually, at a recent social function I had a taste of ...

It is the elephant in the room.
It is what made GZ go after TM
It is what is on the news every night.
But if you talk about it, you are a racist.
Blacks won't admit it.
Blacks are the victims of it.
Blacks blame whites for it.
Just don't talk about it. ...

I had to listen to the Vandy 2nd inning on the radio, I would have been better off reading tea leaves than trying to get information from Hawthorne. He went the whole half inning without giving a score, without saying who was on which base, when Vandy got a hit I had no idea which base the other run...

This would be funny if it wasn't about the umteenth time the Advocate food reviwer has done this. They go to a sushi restaurant, this time the Sakura Sushi in DS, and no one will eat raw fish. So the main reason that people go to a sushi bar is ignored, they give no opinion of selection, freshness ...

The lunch buffet $8.95, $9.95 for dinner, was all very freshly prepared, hot and delicious. I'm not going to try to name the dishes, I can't even pronounce them, except for the n...
