I walk in and there's a freaking Yelp party going on. It was packed with a-holes. My bartender friend is miming shooting himself in the head. Left after 15 minutes, because some dick is bumping in to me and some bitch runs up on my wife. Awful, awful, awful. ...

My wife and I are heading to Pensacola Saturday to go to a memorial service Sunday. Was wondering if there was a good place to watch the LSU-Alabama game. Obviously, considering the circumstances, we're not looking to party, just have a decent meal and watch it at a place other than a hotel. ...

I went to the Blackpot Festival in Lafayette over the weekend and I've been inspired to try my hand at cooking at it next year. My plan is to do garfish balls with rice and gravy.

you're pissed the NFL is playing Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis.
I like the guy's show well enough, but I had to turn it off after 5 minutes today. It got tiresome real quick. Especially when the missing chromosome crew started texting in with stuff like "I hate Minnesota because my ex is from ther...

He and one of the other idiots who hosts that awful radio show are going on about ESPNs coverage of the NFL Draft and criticizing announcers for being all over the place and not doing their homework. It's like hearing Saddam Hussein criticize someone for human rights abuses. ...

They had a couple of cases at the Calandro's on Perkins yesterday, so I got a bottle. A few hours later, I went to Calandro's on Government and saw they only had a few bottles of Enjoy By. The store put up a sign "Limit 1 Enjoy By per customer. And you must buy another 22oz beer." WTF? I've heard o...
