He's playing Rock N Bowl Saturday night. Any other crescent city honky-tonkers checking it out? I'm looking forward to it. :cheers:...
| Outdoor Board|| Porter Ridge - OldHickory on 8/24/13 at 7:31 pm|
Anyone seen this? It's on Discovery now. From the makers of Duck Dynasty... I doubt it'll reach those levels, but it has potential. It's a riot so far....

| Music Board|| Buck Owens - OldHickory on 8/12/13 at 11:17 pm|
As you may or may not know, today would've been Buck Owens' 84th birthday. Buck holds a special place in my heart. Right around the time I really came to know real country music, "Streets of Bakersfield" with Dwight Yoakam popped out on the charts. I feel blessed to say that I listened to Buck's wee...

| Outdoor Board|| First STAR Redfish Caught - OldHickory on 5/26/13 at 5:19 am|
The first tagged redfish was caught on opening day. Talked to the gentleman this morning at Gail's. He was disappointed, because he wanted to win the trout division. :lol:...

I'm seeing on The Hag's site and a few others an appearance at Champions Square on 6/29. Unable to find any info whatsoever about the show. Anyone have any insider knowledge? :cheers:...
| Movie/TV Board|| The Loved One(1965) - OldHickory on 4/17/13 at 9:11 pm|
Has anyone else watched this?
This is one of the best dark comedies I've seen. I haven't watched it in ages, but sometimes TCM will run it. An all-star cast that includes Jonathan Winters, Rod Steiger, Milton Berle, Liberace, Robert Morse and Anjanette Comer among others. The film takes a satiric...

| Food and Drink Board|| Maker's Mark 42% - OldHickory on 3/4/13 at 5:54 pm|
Picked up a bottle of the short-lived 42% today. Is this hooch worth holding on to as a potential collector's item?
For the brief time this stuff was out, they did a pretty effective job of filling the shelves with it....

I've got an individual wanting to purchase a $1,500 item from me. The gentleman just moved here and according to him, is unable to access the cash today. He purchased money orders with his debit card today and wants to pay with them. If we meet at my bank and they cash them, what risks exist? Can mo...

I'm having unexpected company and need a few non-convenience store provisions. Are there any grocery stores open by chance? TIA and Merry Christmas! :cheers:...

Yay or nay? I bought a bottle of that pre-mixed crap that I'm sipping on now. Will conjure up some homemade nog here in a few weeks....
| Political Talk|| Petraeus vs. Clinton - OldHickory on 11/12/12 at 9:52 pm|
So Petraeus is CIA director and resigns over an affair. Yet the former Commander in Chief chooses to fight through the messy details and remains in power. Irony much?...

Check out this story of a 97 year old grandma who still hunts. She could kick probably kick most of our asses.
No mention of a grandpa. Wonder how many husbands ...

All this gumbo talk has done flung a craving on me. Any place that has a good gumbo(non-tomato) in Metairie? Gonna be out that way today, so figured I'd ask....
| Political Talk|| Congressional District #2 - OldHickory on 11/5/12 at 10:44 pm|
Forgive me, but I'm a (fairly) new resident. Any general consensus on the best GOP candidate is? Choices are Bailey and Larose. I'm guessing since the district encompasses most of NO, it doesn't really matter....

Is there such a thing as a female who isn't constantly bitching and moaning about how mean her boss is or how she's expected to do too much at work?
I don't really care how unfair things seem to you. I just want you to bring home a paycheck, grab a beer from the fridge and fix a damn sandwich occ...
| Outdoor Board|| Specks in the Surf - Technical Questions - OldHickory on 5/10/12 at 9:24 pm|
I don't have much experience surf fishing for specks. When using popping corks, how long should I make my leader? I'll more than likely be using Gulp shrimp.
Also, is it best to wade out as far as possible or is there a certain depth the fish tend to run in?
| Food and Drink Board|| Bonneval's Cracklins(bagged) - OldHickory on 5/7/12 at 6:36 pm|
Anyone else a fan of these? More like a pork rind than a cracklin, but some of them have a nice chunk of fat attached. Not as good as a fresh cracklin, but they'll hold you over in a pinch.
On a side note, I cut the skin off of a pork belly and slow rendered it in the oven last week. Talk abou...

First off, I'm not asking for any secret spots.
I'm new down here and wondering if there are general areas or highways where a guy might be able to pick a few gallons of blackberries(within reasonable distance from New Orleans)?
Are they ripe already? Back at the old homeplace, we usually d...
| Food and Drink Board|| Homemade Cracklins - First Attempt - OldHickory on 4/24/12 at 5:30 pm|
I've been lurking around these parts for a little while and figured I'd drop in and say hi.
I took my first shot at making cracklins this weekend. Bought 4 lbs. of skin-on pork belly from the Hong Kong Market in Terrytown, cut it in to one inch-sized pieces, added some additional lard and slow r...
