Going with some coworkers tomorrow and one of my bosses is a little picky when it comes to wine. I've only ever seen her drink cabernet sauvignon and only bottles that she likes a lot.
I know yalls wine list is more "old world-centric" so we will probably need some help with wine. Are you workin...

I searched and saw a post where it seemed like Chan's was probably the place to go. Anywhere else to pick up some good beers?
Also, any recs on good beers that I can't get in TX or LA? CCB and Bells are on the list if I can find some. I might pick up some sweetwater for the week, but I doubt I...

I'm sorry cause I'm sure this has been posted. But what is the best place to sit down for crawfish in town? I'd prefer not to wait 2 hrs at Sammy's if possible but if the crawfish are that much better, I'll make it happen.

I know I'm going to catch some flak for this, but I'm doing a butt in the slow cooker today. I know I know, its not ideal, but I live in an apt and don't have a smoker, and this gets the job done for an easy meal when we get home late.

For those of you that max out your IRA contribution, I'm curious as to when you make your contribution(s) every year.
Do you do the entire lump sum at one point in time during the year? Early? Late? Or do you contribute monthly?
