| Music Board|| Shamarr Allen arrested - NoSaint on 9/18/14 at 8:18 pm|
Should make for an interesting Nola music story. Shamarr was arrested before his set at Armstrong park tonight, I hear.
That's his second incident with NOPD since the incident that made headlines in August. Curious to hear more of the story - my early reports are both sides were dumb tonight....
| Money Talk|| RENOLA Homes - NoSaint on 6/9/14 at 7:06 am|
Had no success on the OT - anyone familiar with RENOLA Homes? Basic renovation company in the New Orleans area. Apparently their claim to fame was that they could turn out a lot of pretty affordable properties by targeting lower end neighborhoods and doing fairly plain renovations. Heard they advert...

Curious if the OT knows anything of Renola homes
New Orleans based renovation company - seems like they used to be big in cheap storm damaged properties. I've heard they used to advertise a lot locally (TV, radio, print) - but these days their website is down, it's seems google has nothing but ye...

Pro 600 or artisan?
Likely not going to make 28lbs of mashed potatoes or 22 dozen cookies, but would do some heavy doughs and definitely things like the grinder.
Does the artisan struggle on heavy work? Does the pro not work on moderate batches?
Found prices close enough that the money won...

So I've done a handful of the standard ones - always hit the locals (voodoo, and typically a day or two of jazz plus all the others you'd expect) and try to travel for 1 each year. Not a huge trip - for example austin city limits this year as a Thursday to Monday, hangout a couple years ago
