| O-T Lounge|| IPhone Audio Book Question - Martini on 5/21/13 at 5:07 pm|
I have several audio books downloaded and some have several parts. The ones with several parts worked fine until I synched my phone and now it will only play one part. Like the others are turned off. I have several albums downloaded that are the same. Only plays 3 or 4 songs instead of all songs. An...

Had a nice lunch today with my daughter before catching the matinee of Wicked. She loves their pizza and it was good. White pizza? I had the tagliatelle with rabbit and porcini mushrooms which I'm a big fan of as well. I really like the roasted goat but the rabbit, even the small plate that I had wa...

I have three select sacks reserved at Tommy's for $2.39 lb and three straight run at $1.89 lb. I just wanted reserved until I could look elsewhere. What's out there now? To be honest I haven't paid much attention this season. ...

| O-T Lounge|| Costco Tax plan coming up for vote - Martini on 5/8/13 at 4:18 pm|
According to BR Business Report it might not pass. $7,000,000.00 incentives.
I believe they should approve it because it will get a huge empty site back into commerce.
What does the OT say?...
| Outdoor Board|| Shooting a deer in water? - Martini on 5/6/13 at 5:55 pm|
Is it legal to shoot a swimming deer in Louisiana? I know it's a state by state law and can't find a Louisiana clarification. And if so how do you determine since it could be walking in the swamp?

The sugar snap peas are really looking good and I bought a sack of them. If you get there early the lobster bisque actually has lobster and $4.99 for 16oz is a deal even thought its hot and I had for lunch. A few new interesting red wine blends are in. If you take a bite out of the vegetarian buns b...

New hair place next door to Burgersmith called Hair Show. Just dropped in looking for a haircut and the girl told me they shave. Since I normally only find it when traveling I jumped on it. Best feeling in the world. My father always said a barbershop shave will go two weeks under the skin.

Not lace up or steel toe. I have some Georgia Boot Wellingtons that are good and comfortable but I just need another pair. Dark brown or distressed, pull on. Maybe a Wellington or a Roper. I prefer a round toe.
Someone posted some here recently and said they were some designers boots. A mans name...

Making gravlax for a first course Friday. I'm using the farm raised Atlantic Salmon because it works well with this recipe and the attendees couldn't tell the difference in flavor. I think it does fine and I've made it a bunch and it's cheap.

My neighbor gave me four beef cheeks, fresh. I'll cook them tomorrow. I've done them before since they own cattle and give a few to me from time to time. Next time I told them I wanted the whole head to cook but I need the weekend to do that and I'm not around this one. So this is what I'll do

| Food and Drink Board|| Jubans Courtyard - Martini on 2/1/13 at 3:24 pm|
Since y'all are still arguing about Galitoires revenue and dislike for the patio I still decided to sit here in this great place and enjoy smoked salmon and an incredible martini this afternoon. I suggest with this great weather you find a nice courtyard yourself, a nice appetizer and a well made co...
| Food and Drink Board|| Do you think Clancys can - Martini on 1/29/13 at 8:17 pm|
Accommodate a party of ten comfortably? Or should I say would we be comfortable? It's an oddball number for me and I hate having to be in charge of this size group. We did ten at Gautreaus and it was just too crowded. And I'll call tomorrow but what the hell, this is where the experts are.

| Food and Drink Board|| Jubans - Martini on 1/24/13 at 8:58 pm|
The patio talk about Galitoires made we want to sit on it but I like the courtyard at Jubans so I went there instead. Great small plates. We had a nice bottle of wine, the Truffled fries, smoked salmon and the creole burger.
That's a nice patio and the food is really well done and not expensive o...
