Anyone know what is going on at the corner of Highland and Staring? THe Exxon gas station closed up and the pumps have been torn out of the ground. I know for a fact that this gas station was open on Sunday. Plus, the building where the vapor store has been torn down as well. Is there something ...

If anyone was interested, the Chimes by campus has some bottles for purchase. You have to ask, as I think that they do not appear on the beer menu....
| Food and Drink Board|| Thoughts on Parkway Bakery? - McVick on 9/20/14 at 9:19 pm|
Just did a quick search on the board and did not find much. What is the F&D Board thoughts on Parkway Bakery? I have personally enjoyed it every time that I have been. Also, it is my preferred grab and go food on my way out of NOLA towards BR due to its location.
Am I missing out on some place...
| O-T Lounge|| I finally get why you switch in the Monty Hall puzzle - McVick on 9/15/14 at 6:16 pm|
You have to look at the puzzle through the eyes of Monty Hall and not the game participant. You always switch to gain the best odds. It makes sense to me now....

| Soccer Board|| Panini 2014 FIFA World Cup Sticker Booklet - McVick on 5/23/14 at 8:46 am|
So, this booklet came with a shirt ordered from the USMNT store. After the news yesterday I looked to see if it predicted Landon's omission from the roster. He made in the land of Panini.
Oddly enough, Brad Evans made one of the 17 spots in the sticker book.

Agent Jack Bauer, a warlock with tiger blood and Adonis DNA, and some guy from NCIS:LA teamed up to fight evil?
And Rod Stewart, Sting, and Canada's second greatest rocker sang this little ditty for the movie?

| Food and Drink Board|| Getting on the Craft Beer Can Train - McVick on 3/20/14 at 10:19 pm|
I found myself some Terrapin RecreationAle, which is a tasty session beer. In addition to the Terrapin, I have stocked up in TX with the Karbach Mother-in-Lager and Avery Rascal, but am looking for other offerings in BR/Louisiana. The only Tin Roof I like is the blonde. I would buy cans of Restor...
| Food and Drink Board|| New Place Near Kenilworth/Matherne's - McVick on 3/12/14 at 10:16 pm|
After driving Highland the other day, I noticed a new sign for Tigre. After doing a little digging, I found out that this was a restaurant from a while ago (moved here in 2010). Therefore, this turned out to be an old sign that Monjuni's must have covered up when they moved in.
Now, I asked aro...
| Food and Drink Board|| Friday Night Seafood Dinner In Baton Rouge - McVick on 3/9/14 at 3:37 pm|
Yes, I am aware that we are in the Lenten period and most places will have a seafood menu. However, I am looking for a solid seafood place in Baton Rouge to take a couple from out-of-town. Normally I would fight the crowd at Sammy (purely out of convenience and location), but probably looking for ...

Do you think that there are any shipwrecked people on the planet, right now, that are living a similar situation as to Gilligan's Island or Castaway? Living on an island in the middle of an ocean not because of choice but because of circumstances beyond their control.
And what would you put th...

Developing a thought here. What is the Disney Spectrum? Where do Disney movies fall/relate to other Disney movies?
I will include all Pixar films, but will exclude all the rest of sequels (Lion King 2, Aladdin 2, Beauty and the Beast 2, etc.). There are a lot of Disney movies; some have held u...

I think that I am in the minority here, but I prefer the No Woman, No Cry version found on Natty Dread over the more popular Live! version. I have heard that the album version may have accidentally been recorded at a faster speed, while the live version was what was intended. Still, I like the inte...
