I think this is a cool idea.
All NBA teams that have won a championship will wear a small gold tab on their back jersey collars starting with the 2014-15 season, according to images obtained from an adidas retail catalog that began circulating on the Internet on Tuesday afternoon.
The gold ...

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. ...

| Food and Drink Board|| Strange stuff Calandro's is doing with Stone Enjoy By - timbo on 3/23/14 at 10:39 am|
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...

A good friend of mine and his fiancée are opening the Lock and Key, a whiskey and wine bar, at College and Corporate, where Glen's was. They should be in business by mid-December. We got a sneak peek last night and it was real nice.

We'll be in Houston the day of the game. Where would be a good place to watch it? We'll probably stay downtown, but I have no problem with a short cab ride. I was thinking maybe The Hay Merchant?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Old Rail Brewing Company - timbo on 9/23/13 at 11:23 am|
The Missus and I took a trip to Old Rail Brewing Company Sunday afternoon to eat, drink and watch the Saints.
The beer is excellent. We each had flights of beer. I really liked the Cow Catcher Milk Stout and the Echo Sierra Bravo ESB. I thought the stout was one of the best beers I have had in a wh...

We're thinking about throwing a little dinner party for some friends in the next few weeks. We were going to serve Sazeracs beforehand. (We have a new cat we named Sazerac) What are some dishes that would go with the cocktail? My wife read something that said jambalaya would work.....
| Movie/TV Board|| Bar Rescue 7/14 - timbo on 7/14/13 at 9:12 pm|
Anyone watching this? The bar was filling up bottles of call brand booze with well brands. That's straight raggedly. I would never go back to a place that did that. ...

Had it last weekend when I did the brewery tour. It was real good. I picked up a 4 pack in Waveland on my way out of Mississippi and my wife drank three bottles. Anyone seen this in Baton Rouge? I tried the finder on their website but nothing was showing up.

The Missus and I are going to the Mississippi Gulf Coast this weekend. I lived in Biloxi for a few years in the early 2000s, but have only been back a few times since Katrina. Where are good places to eat, drink beer and buy beer? We'll drop by Mary Mahoney's, the Irish Coast Pub and Lazy ...

The Missus and I are going to Houston for Memorial Day weekend. We're going to tour the St. Arnold Brewery, eat good Mexican food, visit some museums, go to IKEA and hit Spec's.

I wanna smoke a turkey breast for Easter. I went to Whole Foods and they were expensive - like $40 for a breast. Went to Albertson's and no luck. Does any place have turkey breasts? Or should I just be prepared to pay up?

We went there for lunch today. I had never heard of the place, but it was really good. We split a ravioli special with Italian ham and an Emilio sandwich. Had a tiramisu for dessert. It's worth a visit if you are out there....
| Food and Drink Board|| Garfish balls? - timbo on 2/15/13 at 11:30 am|
When I was a kid, garfish balls with rice and gravy were a Lenten staple in the school cafeteria and in plate lunches. Is there anywhere around Baton Rouge that sells garfish balls in a plate lunch?
There's a little grocery store in Morganza that sells raw garfish balls. I tried cooking them once...

Got a couple of hog backstraps from the in-laws on Christmas Day. Look like they both weigh a pound or so.
Any suggestions what to do with them? I tried Googling "hog backstrap recipes" and the results were a little grim -- such Food Board favorites as marinating in Italian dressing or stuffing ...

My wife bought me a growler of Stone 12.12.12 for Christmas. It's just over 3 quarts and as tall as a small child. When should I crack in to it? Too bad LSU isn't going to a marquee bowl and the Saints didn't make the playoffs. Lord, I may just invite a buddy over one weekend when she works and do s...

I'm trapped at the office and got to thinking, based on a thread about Walk-On's. What is the best sports bar you have been to?
I gotta go with the late, lamented Village Sports Pub in Biloxi, Miss. Hurricane Katrina knocked the place out, although it looks like they tried unsuccessfully to reope...

Sad news. Any bar that doesn't have a TV set and has T-Rex and Guns N' Roses in the jukebox is a good one in my book.
