| Food and Drink Board|| Around UNO dining - Debaser on 7/24/14 at 11:52 am|
Going to Steely Dan at UNO Saturday night. What restaurants are around there? Was thinking Fausto's??
Pasta with a side of Jazz guitar, lol...
Any suggestions? TIA!...
| O-T Lounge|| re: Tom James Custom Suits--anyone had one made? - Debaser on 7/21/14 at 4:56 pm|
I've been buying their stuff for over 10 years. I'm a fan. They are a bit slow to incorporate newer cuts, but I still have sport coats and suits that are in rotation, even after 10 years. High quality.
You can spend from a low of about $1100/suit to upwards of $5K. I like to keep it $1000-2...
| Food and Drink Board|| re: NOLA.com takes stab at best burger in the city - Debaser on 6/23/14 at 2:02 pm|
I love heading into the city and trying good burgers. I'm not into ranking burgers, but ones I've liked/loved:
Port of Call
Liuzza's By the Track
I did not see Houston's on any of the lists, but it is a damn fine burger.
It's tough for me to just get ...

I just hired a grad with a 3.9 GPA and just passed CPA exam for $52K + benefits. Starting salaries are close to that level in CPA firms for the best talent, at least in South LA. Without the CPA, I would have paid about $42K, as long as they were on the path to CPA. Very little experience other tha...

I've been to Chicago a few times and I have enjoyed the food there. Adobe Grill is a Mexican food joint up there that is as a good as any restaurant I've ever been. Longman & Eagle is a fantastic neighborhood place with a great bar. Hotel restaurants are good there. Rosebud. Gibson's Streakhouse...

| Music Board|| KoL / BTE this weekend in NOLA - Debaser on 4/14/14 at 9:51 am|
I went all in on KoL tix. I had 8 tix in the first 4 rows, a limo, etc. I have seen KoL 3 times, once in 2007 at HOB NOLA - which was an amazing show, the other time at Jazz fest - I think in 2009 or 2010. The JF show and the one this weekend were really - boring.
The played well, but they w...

Big Mike's is awesome. I have not tried that burger, but it's on the post-diet list now. I got a burger for pick up and it was not hot when I picked it up, so I never tried the burger again. I guess I need to dine in and get this one.
Now - 40 pounds to go and stop checking out the FDB....

I will try to answer some of your questions with my 2 time experience there. So I am kind of a noob too.
Do you feel like you have to buy a bottle at each place? Or is that not expected?
Some wineries are trying real hard to sell, some are laid back. The tasting fee is like $30 per winery a...

I've been there twice and loved it. Second time I ate in the frog bar as a walk in. No worries - same menu. Moules frites are extraordinary, steaks are top notch. Both times were great food. Better service of course on the restaurant side....

I like gin and whiskey too. Favorite gins are Hendricks beefeater, beef24. Fav whiskeys are glenlivet 15 and macallen. I like buffalo trace, wood ford, and Russell's for bourbon go to's. I like expensive stuff too, these are just my bar stock that I usually find myself picking up and enjoying....

I know the brewer's wife is from Bourg and you can't buy it here in Houma/Thib. I pick up a case when I am in BR, and that's the best its gonna get until they expand capacity at Parish. Since it is not distributed locally, it cannot be purchased locally. The laws/rules about selling beer are so a...

There needs to be a moratorium on new chicken wing restaurants in Houma. What is the appeal of fricking chicken wings? I can understand wanting them as a snack - but do we really need ANOTHER restaurant serving wings as its main fare? Wing stop, BWW, WOW, now this shit? There are enough restauran...
| Food and Drink Board|| re: 5 guys... Houma? - Debaser on 1/6/14 at 9:35 am|
I've heard the same rumor re Five Guys - we should know soon as there has been a lot of renovation activity of late.
FWIW - The best burger in Houma can currently be had at none other than Ellendale Country Club, although it is not exactly convenient if you live in Summerfield/SugarMill area, o...

Has anyone done this before? I've never hunted woodcock and never hunted a WMA. I was thinking about going because I have a good GSP that I would enjoy seeing work woodcock. I have no idea how to hunt them, if they are any good to eat, etc. I spoke to another GSP owner from MI who hunts them in ...
