Still have not made it in to Nonna...but was at a Good Friday / Easter party catered by Nonna and Cotton.
All I can say is wow....can not wait to get into Nonna for the real deal. The catering staff was first class, the food was fresh, hot and delicious.
The food I sampled is as follows:

I was there this past weekend - what a change that has taken place. The crawfish were perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned and the service was spot on.
It was a very pleasan...

I am watching "Trained Assassins" on The Sportsman Channel.
A few things - a show named liked that....no wonder people hate hunters.
The guy just shot a great buck but the shot was unethical and was way too far back.
It looks like any idiot could film their hunt on a go pro and get on TV.

How can you eat crawfish at Cormier's? I tried this place again. Someone needs to tell these guys they are doing it wrong.
I had two pounds of seasoning poured on my five pounds for crawfish. It has to be a scam to sell beer.

Looking at the Leupold VX-2 3-9x40, duplex reticle for $299.98. The cost is scope only.
The scope will go on my kid's youth model 7mm08. Shots will be between 75 and 200 yards with nearly every shot coming in the late afternoon.
Is this a good deal and are there better options?...
