re: Anyone else dread Thanksgiving because of bad cooks in the family? - nikinik
I'm not dreading Thanksgiving because of it, but my niece makes the mac and cheese, and it's not very good. I want to make it and blow hers out of the water, but no one ever wants to assign it to someone for fear of hurting her feelings. Screw that....

Midway Pizza - Review - nikinik
My date and I had a hankering for pizza last night so we headed to Midway. Midway is a relatively new pizza joint on the ever growing scene of Freret Street. I loved the atmosphere. Very warm and kinda funky too. You can see into the kitchen, which I'm always a fan of. The waiters and waitres...

[quote]I think the place is on pad with any nice bar in nola maybe a little higher, but that is done on purpose. [/quote] Again, I had no problem with an $18 glass of wine in a nice establishment.

re: House of Blues Foundation Room - Review - nikinik
The mixed drink prices were pretty reasonable. I hadn't planned on drinking 3 glasses. I planned to drink 2, but then ran into some people I hadn't seen in a long time, and ended up there way longer than I had intended. But thank you for the wine lesson. You of all people should know I don...

[quote]Actually you can but they've made it much more difficult. The scalper has to essentially eat one of the tickets in order to "sell" the other one.[/quote] I guess.

re: Foo Fighters Ticket Sales - nikinik
[quote]same, I was on it all morning waiting..no reason I shouldn't have gotten tickets[/quote] There's every reason. There were only 100 tickets to sell. That's only 50 transactions. It selling out in seconds is expected, and reasonable. Just sucks that we weren't in that number....

re: Foo Fighters Ticket Sales - nikinik
There are no "tickets." It's will call only. You show up with your other party, produce your ID and credit card, and get your armband to go in. No way to transfer tickets....

[quote]If you want to be clear of the commoners, there's a premium attached.[/quote] I'm cool with the premium attached. I'm even ok with an $18 glass of wine IF it's justifiably an $18 glass of wine. I'm not cheap, but again I think a 900% mark up is ridiculous. I expected $12. Also, I thin...

House of Blues Foundation Room - Review - nikinik
This is a somewhat difficult review to write, because what the Foundation Room does right, it does very right. What it does wrong, it does very wrong. The Foundation Room is the members only, exclusive area above the House of Blues. Although I don't have a membership, I'm occasionally invited u...

Had it for lunch today. It was awesome. Looked nothing like the photo...was sloppy as shit, but really tasty. I'm missing the po boy fest this year. I'm camping in Texas. Not too sad about it. It's become such a shite show with the out of control crowds. I felt less run over in India....
