Whenever we have a large party, say 40+, over to the house, I buy good wine and beer and spirits. But I hold in reserve, hidden away, a few bottles of something special just for me to drink. My close friends and the guests who care about good wine know to ask me what I'm drinking. I am happy to shar...

Do you call your parents "Mom and Dad" ? - vistajay
Do you call your parents "Mom and Dad" or do you use their first names? If you use their first names when did you start and why? I would blow a gasket if my kids called me by my given name. I can tolerate a lot, but I'm gonna be their Dad til I die. Too many people want to be a best friend rather ...

Milkfish quick lunch review - vistajay
Popped into Milkfish on Carrollton for lunch. Was surprised to see it basically empty considering all the press it has received. Decor is dark and funky. Probably looks better at night. Some sort of Asian soft rock music played in the background. Admittedly I ordered conservatively but was underw...

I have some out of town guests who are going to more formal restaurants later in their stay, but for the first night want a more casual, New Orleans experience in the French Quarter.

This Is the End movie review-spoilers - vistajay
Not really a review so much as a commentary. This was one of the funniest movies I have seen in a couple of years. I really liked how the actors made fun of themselves and the movie industry in general. It even had a moral backbone. Go see it....
