| Food and Drink Board|| Toast Review - REG861 on 6/1/14 at 3:07 pm|
I'll just summarize this by saying our experience was pretty much a catastrophe, and the lapses in service outweighed the food.
If you're familiar with Tartine, you know that there is limited space. Somehow Tartine pulls that off, but Toast was a complete clusterfrick. There was no discernible h...

| Movie/TV Board|| Once-acclaimed movies with no staying power - REG861 on 5/12/14 at 9:24 pm|
I'm talking recent movies that were relatively highly acclaimed, and even nominated for an Oscar or two, that have seem to disappeared from the moviegoing eye in years past.
For instance, Munich by Spielberg was a best picture nominee in 2005 or 2006, but has had no staying power since then. Som...
| Music Board|| Is Hangout going to sell out this year? - REG861 on 4/18/14 at 6:36 pm|
And if so, when?
Only a few weeks to go and they are still selling three day passes. Plus there are plenty available on stub hub. Last year they had sold out at already at this time.
I have a pass but may not be able to go, so I want to try and sell it.

This incident got a lot of coverage on here (and in the news in general). Pretty sure it was pinned on some losers from Georgia. Either way, the Sigma Phi Epsilon national shut down the OM...
| More Sports Board|| NBA early entries - REG861 on 4/14/14 at 3:59 pm|
I figured I might as well get one of these started. It's always interesting to see who stays and goes, especially in the age of one and done.
Michigan just got hit hard with the loss of Stauskas and now Glenn Robinson III.
Arizona lost Aaron Gordon (as expected) and Nick Johnson.

Can someone explain to me how there are what appear to be actual crack dens a full block from LSU's campus? I don't understand how, with major college attractions abounding in the area, how here are somehow roving bands of drug addicts and beggars permitted to just hang around? Someone needs to clea...
| Food and Drink Board|| Is IPO still worth going to? - REG861 on 4/4/14 at 8:38 am|
I was planning on going there tonight, but the more I look into it, the more I'm reconsidering. I liked it when I went over a year ago, but I've gotten the impression that it's fizzling (I know there was a kitchen turnover in the last year). I saw a groupon for it recently, and some of the recent y...

I just had my legitimate ID turned away at Whole Foods on Magazine while buying beer. They said that it "looked too weird." I'm 27 and was wearing a suit. I didn't feel like putting up a fight, not to mention that the floor manager came over and also rejected me even though I explained I got it from...

In addition to Noah Vonleh declaring for the draft (understandable), 3 Hoosiers are taking their talents elsewhere rather than play for this clown again.

Some Elmer Gantry-like fundamental Christians are having a protest outside the Varsity because the band playing tonight, Switchfoot, are not sufficiently Christian because they are playing in a bar room. These clowns have the whole Bourbon St. set up with megaphones and banners.

In fact, I hated it for much of it, although it finally showed signs of life at the end. The whole thing felt dull and even worse, it was like one giant pastiche of Goodfellas/Casino/Boogie Nights imitations without any of the artistic skill evident in those movies (see any of the scenes set to a 70...

So with all the talk about us drafting a WR, I'm trying to gauge a picture of our receivers next year. I'm not including TE's.
Colston (I think these two are obvious).
Drafted/free agent WR to be determined.
What are the odds we bring Meachem back? Is Moore a sure ...

| Movie/TV Board|| Suspiria (review) - REG861 on 12/4/13 at 5:53 pm|
So I finally watched Suspiria last night and I was a bit disappointed, especially with the ending. While it exuded a terrifically creepy atmosphere and Argenti's style was impeccable, the screenplay itself left a ton to be desired. The opening murders were very well done, as was the scene with Sarah...

What's a GOOD saints bar in Baton Rouge? I'm talking a place where I can scream bloody murder and not be looked at funny (which eliminates Chimes, which might as well be a morgue during games). Walk On's has been pretty weak. Is Bulldog any good in terms of game day atmosphere? I don't care if its a...
