| 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 ...

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...

When I was an undergrad, the ATM on campus dispensed $10's and $20's. Sometimes the $10's slot was fileld with $20's and we would double our money is a very slow fashion.
However, on one occasion the ATM was doubling everyone's money. Withdraw $300, dispense $600. The line of students was over...
