The wife has made reservations tonight to celebrate my birthday. Very excited as it's going to be our first time dining there. Any must-have items there? Is it as dressy as places like Commander's? Wouldn't want to look out of place with nice pants and a button-down shirt.
Thanks in advance for t...

| Food and Drink Board|| Kenner Lunch Spots - Charleaux on 5/18/13 at 12:44 pm|
I recently started a new job in Kenner and I am allowed about 30-35 minutes for lunch (starting the moment I order). Only stipulation is that I must stay within the city limits. What are some good spots you guys would recommend?...
| Food and Drink Board|| NOLA Indian food - Charleaux on 5/11/13 at 8:39 am|
The Curry N Kabob thread has me craving Indian food but didn't want to hijack the other thread. My wife is going out of town for work for a week and since she doesn't care too much for Indian food, I'll take advantage of her being away. What are some of your favorite spots in the NOLA area? ...
| O-T Lounge|| Vaccum Question for Pet Owners - Charleaux on 5/5/13 at 3:59 pm|
My current vacuum appears to be on its way out and the wife and I are looking at buying a new one. Since we purchased our last one, we adopted a couple of dogs that do shed a fair amount of hair and, for that reason, we were discussing the possibility of purchasing a high-end vacuum.
In your expe...

The wife and I are re-doing our yard and laying down some new sod. Does the OT have any tips on where to find sod at a good price in New Orleans?
Thanks in advance!...

The wife and I are about to go on a vacation in the Caribbean and we were looking to get a new digital camera to bring with us.

I'm going to Gautreau's for the first time tomorrow night with some family members. I wanted to hear the opinion of the F&D veterans on the menu. Does the menu changes partially or completely every day? What are some of the best items on the menu? Thanks in advance! ...

Starting today and until the 11th Max Payne 3 is 66% off on Steam. I've played the first 2 when they first came out and really liked them. How is the 3rd one? Is it worth getting?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Top Business Casual Nola Restaurants - Charleaux on 3/4/13 at 5:55 pm|
My parents are coming to visit from Canada next week and, per their tradition, are taking me and my wife out for dinner at a restaurant of our choice. The only thing is that my dad wears a suit every day for work and doesn't want to have to bring one on his vacation.
I'm not familiar with the va...
| Movie/TV Board|| Rust and Bone - Charleaux on 1/18/13 at 11:56 am|
Apparently Rust and Bone, the acclaimed French movie, is now out in the New Orleans area. Marion Cotillard gives a great performance from what I've heard. Anybody planning on checking it out? Anybody here has seen it already?
Also, does anyone know if its the original French version with subtitle...
| O-T Lounge|| Good Budget Travel Destinations - Charleaux on 1/3/13 at 10:54 am|
My wife has been working a ton the last year and wanted us to spend more time with each other this upcoming year. We thought it would be nice to take a little vacation together sometime this spring (April/May) without breaking the bank since we're saving up to upgrade her car and our home.

| Fantasy Sports Board|| WR2 for Championship - Charleaux on 12/21/12 at 7:40 am|
I'm in the championship game of my standard league and I've currently got Roddy White in the WR2 slot. With RG3 likely to start I am seriously debating starting Garcon over him since White has been disappointing the last few weeks. I also have Wayne on the bench but not too confident in him. Who wou...

A friend of mine from out of town is in Metairie for work today. Does anybody have a good suggestion where I could take him out for a quick lunch? Type of food doesn't matter as he's pretty open but preferably not a chain. Thanks!...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Because Kickers need love too - Charleaux on 12/16/12 at 6:10 pm|
Anybody else playing Janikowski? After a meager point last week during my bye, he shows up today and is my second best scorer behind Adrian Peterson. 2 50+ FGs, 1 40+, and two more less than 40. Thanks kicker! :bow:...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Flex Help - Charleaux on 12/15/12 at 6:00 am|

| Movie/TV Board|| Silver Linings Playbook - Charleaux on 12/2/12 at 4:11 pm|
I was in Houston for work this weekend so I took the wife out to see it and we both came out very impressed. The movie overall was very good but Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence were outstanding. Lawrence is a sure bet for an Oscar nomination. Would definitely recommend it once it expands to mor...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Marshall or Spiller? - Charleaux on 11/25/12 at 6:52 am|
I'm debating between the two for my flex spot in a standard league. I was originally going to roll with Spiller against Indy despite the return of F. Jackson but I'm torn again with the news that Cutler is supposed to start. Which one would y'all go with?...

Lately I've seen a lot of posters recommend others to build their own PC to save some money and get exactly what they need. Even though I'm no PC expert, I decided to try it after checking out the tutorial by newegg since it didn't seem too complex.
I finally got my last part in the mail yesterda...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| WRs and Flex Question - Charleaux on 11/14/12 at 1:35 pm|
I can lock up a playoff spot in my league with a win this week and its making me second guess my WR and flex picks. For the record, I play in a standard league. My options are:
Reggie Wayne - like the matchup against the patriots. I think the colts will fall behind early and throw a lot the rest ...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| TE Pick-up - Charleaux on 10/9/12 at 6:03 am|
Graham is off this week so I need to pick up a TE off the waivers in my standard league. Some of the biggest names available are Daniels, Miller, Chandler, Tamme, and Pitta. I was thinking Daniels but now I'm having second thoughts.
Any recommendations on who I should pick-up for the week?...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Start Spiller? - Charleaux on 9/30/12 at 11:10 am|

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Backup QB - Charleaux on 9/17/12 at 8:12 am|
I currently have Brady and Schaub as my QBs in a standard, 6pts all TDs league. This being my first time doing fantasy football, I didn't realize how bad Schaub would be in fantasy. Combined with Brady's slow first 2 weeks, I'm thinking I should be maybe try the waiver list to get a better backup. A...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| WR Dilemma - Charleaux on 9/12/12 at 9:53 am|
I am currently starting Marshall and White as my WR in my standard league and I have Steve Smith as my flex. I've been tempted to start Wayne since Luck seems to throw a lot to him. Should I start Wayne over one of the others? ...
| Gaming Board|| Looking to Buy a Budget Gaming PC - Charleaux on 9/4/12 at 1:19 pm|
As a student I've been using a laptop for the last several years and I'm now looking into buying a desktop to be able to play a few modern games, mostly D3/Tochlight 2 type games. I obviously do not need a super powerful computer to play those which is good since I only have a $500-700 budget.

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Fantasy First Timer - Charleaux on 8/23/12 at 10:46 am|
I've finally decided to give in and try fantasy football by joining my brother-in-law's league. It's only an 8-team league with standard scoring except passing TDs are 6pts instead of 4.
I understand that RBs are usually valued more than QBs in standard scoring but with the 2 extra points should ...
