| O-T Lounge|| UNInteresting Legal predicament - Jax-Tiger on 10/1/14 at 4:03 pm|
I know, I know, this not really asking for legal advice on the OT lounge. I am looking at attorneys right now, but I thought it would be an interesting topic of conversation.
Background: My mother-in-law went to the hospital two years ago for some routine testing for a medical problem she was h...
| Food and Drink Board|| Interesting Brewing method using Liquid Nitrogen - Jax-Tiger on 9/17/14 at 11:03 am|
I had a fresh hopped IPA from Breakside that used Simco Hops. I loved the beer. More research required, right?
I looked the beer up, and apparently, they are using some ground-breaking techniques to extract more flavor from the hops. Apparently, they freeze the fresh hops in liquid nitrogen an...
| Food and Drink Board|| Ghost in the Machine - Jax-Tiger on 9/16/14 at 12:27 pm|
I did a taste test with GitM, Pliny the Elder, and Boneyard's Hop Venom, yesterday at Belmont Station (a local taproom/bottleshop here in Portland). The participants were random bar customers that claimed to be hop heads, and I'm certain that at least two of them had some experience brewing IPAs. ...

| Food and Drink Board|| Blue Star Donuts - Jax-Tiger on 8/31/14 at 5:32 pm|
Anybody going to Portland who is thinking about going to Voodoo Donuts should consider Bluestar, instead. Better donuts, although more expensive. The line is just as long, though...
| Food and Drink Board|| Reverse Sear - Part II - Jax-Tiger on 8/24/14 at 8:16 pm|
I did the old reverse sear with a NY Strip that was well over 2" thick.
I made a rub of paprika, cayenne, kosher salt, cracked black pepper, onion powder, and thyme.

BCBS. Start it strong.
| Food and Drink Board|| Beer Friendly States - Jax-Tiger on 8/18/14 at 12:07 pm|
Followup to previous thread on best beer states. This is a statistical analysis of the beer states. The list looks much different than the ones we came up with. This may be the only list that has Louisiana ahead of California. :lol:
The statistics show that California is hampered by it's rela...

MegaDank by Heathen. Lives up to its name.
| Food and Drink Board|| Reverse Sear on the grill (with pics) - Jax-Tiger on 8/10/14 at 10:50 pm|
I picked up a 2" thick choice ribeye at QFC. I salted and peppered it generously and put it on the grill at 300 degrees.
| Food and Drink Board|| Bone Marrow ice cream with bourbon smoked cherries - Jax-Tiger on 8/10/14 at 5:22 pm|
Had this today at Salt and Straw. Was very good. The cherries were a great addition because the bone marrow ice cream was rich, but not quite flavorful enough to carry the ice cream on its own. The best flavor was Strawberry honey balsamic vinegar with cracked black pepper.
| Food and Drink Board|| Bone Marrow Ice Cream - Would you order it? - Jax-Tiger on 7/31/14 at 10:30 am|
Salt and Straw has it on their menu as a featured flavor. Yea or Nay?...

Especially if they have more than 5 items. I thought I could save time by going through the self-checkout lines at the supermarket. I sat and watched 4 people try to figure it out for ten minutes and kept wondering, "Why are they doing this?"...

Having a beer and a hot dog, hold the hot dog.

No food, just a beer. RPM. Are all Old Chicago pizzas maven friendly? Or just mine?
| More Sports Board|| Where do you see more flops, the NBA Playoffs or the World Cup? - Jax-Tiger on 6/25/14 at 11:20 am|
I was watching the alleged biting incident in the World Cup, and the Italian player went down like he'd been shot after getting bit on the shoulder (allegedly). Suarez went down immediately afterwards and rolled on the ground like his clothes were on fire.
I'm not a soccer fan, but the World C...

For this administration to endure the ridicule, criticism, and scrutiny they are about to get, not to mention the ensuing legal battles. They must be making the conscious decision that this is better than the alternative, which is turning the e-mails over.
Somebody (or somebodies) must be incrim...

How does us trading terrorists for U.S. citizens not encourage the terrorists to capture more citizens to use as trade material in the future?...
| Political Talk|| Is the Obama administration incompetent or smart like a fox? - Jax-Tiger on 6/5/14 at 10:03 am|
I have maintained for some time that the continuous string of controversies has worked to the advantage of the administration.
Each controversy seems to be the result of an incompetent administration. However, I think the controversies generate "noise" from the Republicans and when a real scan...
