| Food and Drink Board|| re: Spinoff from the OT: What would you add to BR (restaurant wise) - RaginCajunz on 12/16/14 at 5:21 pm|
Cafe Habana City (Lafayette) placed anywhere in BR Metro. I'd settle for any Cuban, but CHC is the best I've had.
| Food and Drink Board|| re: Leblanc's Drusilla Early March! - RaginCajunz on 12/12/14 at 11:39 am|
I think the newest Leblanc's on Airline is the nicest and most well-rounded grocery in the metro. I'm sure this one will be the same format. It's most similar to the nicer Rouse's that I've been in.
(that said, the new Rouse's they are building may trump the current Leblanc's format)

I have the basic table from [link=(http://uturnaudio.com/)]U Turn Audio[/link] and really enjoy it. There's multiple options, but it highly reviewed and considered one of the top options in that price range.

For espresso, don't skimp on the grinder as previously mentioned. The [link=(https://www.seattlecoffeegear.com/baratza-virtuoso-burr-espresso-grinder-with-preciso-burrs-redesign-586)]Baratza Virtuoso[/link] is the one I use and considered a good grinder for the money. Much cheaper than that, and t...

I use a double-wall insulated stainless press. It does a reasonable job of holding the pot warm. I suspect the double wall glass models would work even better.

Interesting. Any idea what it was named? Not that a new cash-only place is likely to have any sort of internet presence. ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Central American Restaurant - Jones Creek. Any info? - RaginCajunz on 11/29/14 at 3:40 pm|
I rarely drive down Jones Creek but I did so today. I noticed that the Arzi's by Ralphs is now different. The sign was in a hard to read script (especially since it caught me off guard as I flew by) but I did notice the sans-serif text under said "Central American Cuisine."
Any ideas what the...

I saw PopMarket is doing a BF sale. Just curious if anyone knows of any other sales that might be worth checking out.
| Political Talk|| re: History of grand juries - RaginCajunz on 11/26/14 at 1:25 pm|
Can you imagine the uproar if the prosecution threw out all of the fables that were unreliable and made up and only presented the GJ with the evidence they felt would hold up in court? There would have been riots that they were withholding the truth (Troof). The only reason it went to a GJ was due...

They were rioting in the name of white people? I missed that part. I enjoy your threads. I've met some real idiots in my life, and your threads make me realize there are so many levels dumber and more idiotic. You are a rare kind of stupid. If they compressed stupid and made a gemstone, it'd be ca...

I actually liked their burger and fries, but I found it expensive. It was $30 for my wife to get a burger, fries and fountain drinks. It also seemed to take forever. ...

I'd strongly consider it as well. I agree with his stance on about 85% of the time. Even when I disagree, he is very well reasoned. A nice guy to boot. After every show in Vegas they meet with the audience to shake hands and pose for pictures. It's a nice touch. ...
| Political Talk|| Penn & Teller - New Orleans March 13th (Libertarian) - RaginCajunz on 11/21/14 at 10:26 am|
I'm only posting it in this section because they have such a strong libertarian leaning to their shtick. My wife and I saw them in Vegas and it was a great show. It has been a while since they toured, so thought I'd pass the info along. Tickets on sale this morning.

I guess this answers the question many here have asked. How do they stay afloat with mediocre food? The answer, not very well.
