Quick hijack. I was living in a house with three other guys one summer. We were told that we had to move out by the end of the month because the landlord and his wife with seven kids were moving in. The wife showed up with a U-Haul full of stuff and some of her kids. One roommate and myself were the...

Recently at L'Auberge I was the shooter. Just before I rolled I saw a guy on my end put down his entire stack on Don't Pass. I asked if he was coloring up and he responded "Nope". I usually play Don't Pass so it didn't bother me, but it just surprised me that he was betting that much on a high li...

I love how data can be skewed. Yes, the US/Portugal game might have been the 35th most watched sporting event if it was during 2013, but (at a minimum) the top 25-30 sporting events were NFL. Maybe all 34 spots. Also, looking at the Nielsen Top Ten most watched single telecasts for 2013 included ...

I can only offer info on Stowe. Hen of the Wood and Michael's on the Hill are solid choices from what I remember. Both are in Waterbury, (about 15-20 minutes depending where you are staying in Stowe) but Michael's is right next to the town line between Stowe and Waterbury and has a nice view if yo...

So, this booklet came with a shirt ordered from the USMNT store. After the news yesterday I looked to see if it predicted Landon's omission from the roster. He made in the land of Panini.
Oddly enough, Brad Evans made one of the 17 spots in the sticker book.

I know that I have seen it in BR for $45. I cannot find it in BR for $45 right now. Another state has excess of Blanton product, albeit $10 more per bottle. I am asking, what would be the price where you would say "That's too much"? $65?...
| Food and Drink Board|| re: Price Tipping Point for Blanton's - McVick on 5/3/14 at 9:59 am|
I ask because I am aware that it is not as easy to find as a couple of years ago in Baton Rouge. Up north in my state liquor stores it retails for $55. I remember it was only a few years ago that it was about $45 in Baton Rouge. Wow...
