re: OT History "What If" Discussion: Germany Wins WWI in 1914 - BlackenedOut
There was a discussion the other week about a book written that talks about how the British basically caused world war I because they failed to understand the issues. Or at least I seem to recall that. I thought I ordered the book, but I did not and know I cant find any reference to it. Any help...

re: Courtyard Brewery's taproom plan clears New Orleans City Council - BlackenedOut
SO I think a brewery can sell up to 10% of their inventory direct from their brewery to the consumer. This is a state ATC rule rather than a city of New Orleans regulation. Courtyard has been battling with the City for a zoning or land use issue in order to get approval to open a brewery/taproom....

re: Square Root reservation system goes live today... - BlackenedOut
Yeah he has the chops. I tend to think his reigns were tighter at Root than they will be at Square Root. Again, I think this place will have a lot of judgment both good and bad passed on it by everyone who walks in the door. But to judge it before its open and because it seems weird to say reserv...

re: Square Root reservation system goes live today... - BlackenedOut
I look at price like this. I've walked into myriad "tapas" or small plates places in New Orleans and elsewhere and ordered a bunch of 8-14 dollar appetapazers and ended up spending a not dissimilar amount of money to $150 a head (alcohol more yes) for food that wasn't particularly memorable. So ...

re: Square Root reservation system goes live today... - BlackenedOut
Ehh, this has become a fairly standard process throughout the fine dining world - from the bar concept, to charging for no shows (Stella has been doing it for years), to multi course tasting menus. One of my favorite meals of all time was a seat at the "bar" at Joel Robuchon in Paris. New Orlean...

re: Courtyard Brewery's taproom plan clears New Orleans City Council - BlackenedOut
I get that, but trying to do math in my head. Let's assume they are kegging in 5 gallon increments. Let's say they are doing a 14 ounce pour, with some allotment for waste that is 40 ish beers per keg. At what price? $4-6 a beer. That's what $140-240 gross per 5 gallon batch, six of those per barrel...

re: Courtyard Brewery's taproom plan clears New Orleans City Council - BlackenedOut
I understand that component of it, but I dont understand how that is enough money to cover the fixed costs of opening and operating a brewery. Rent, insurance, taxes, fees, etc... are all the same (or similar). But I guess your have lower overhead on other aspects. Either way, cool idea and glad...

re: 300,000 people at Strawberry Festival in Ponchatoula? - BlackenedOut
All these free festival attendance numbers use math that strains normal concepts of addition and subtraction. There is simply no way, as one poster said, 25% of the population of SE LA is going to Strawberry Fest and additionally another 25% is also going to FQF. FQF at one point had people with ...

La Petite Grocery and Patois both have excellent brunches. You could also try Galatoire's (reservations upstairs, downstairs first come first serve). You want to sit downstairs.
