My uncle is an old man, but he did win the BR Amateur a few years back - Paul Castro. Their group plays out at Pelican and has some players - though I can see padding a handicap at Pelican pretty easy - good greens and no rough......
| Music Board|| re: What are your Top 3 BR radio stations? - Zissou on 3/11/14 at 2:21 pm|
90.3 on Saturday mornings will make you miss living in Baton Rouge. Really disappointing that they don't stream that signal.
And catching Zia on KLSU on Sundays is awesome too. I don't care what music he plays, as long as he speaks with that cool voice....
| More Sports Board|| re: Which Club has the best course in BR area? - Zissou on 3/11/14 at 7:52 am|
Gotta give some mention to Santa Maria for the layout. Both par 5's on the front are great, as is that bitch par 3 #5.
And I think four of the best finishing holes you could ask for. 18 always makes for an interesting ending bet....

Chophouse looks great and a true carnivore experience.
It's between that and Coquette, and now we're not exactly comparing apples to apples.
Thanks for the help, yall....
| Food and Drink Board|| re: Anniversary Dinner Sunday in Nola - Zissou on 3/6/14 at 8:25 am|
Well, sounds like Morton's is out - damn chain restaurant anyway...
I'm sure we can't go wrong with Delmonico. And Coquette looks like an upscale Boucherie... accurate?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Anniversary Dinner Sunday in Nola - Zissou on 3/6/14 at 8:06 am|
I'm sure this is a pretty common thread, but couldn't find a recent one. Wife and I are in New Orleans for the weekend for our anniversary and looking for a nice dinner on Sunday night. We are both thinking steak if that helps.
Options so far:
Steak Star & Lobster

| O-T Lounge|| re: Hair test coming up. Any success stories? - Zissou on 2/17/14 at 7:41 pm|
I've taken a number of these hair tests for the oil and gas industry. They are looking for the 1.5 inches closest to the scalp, but not the roots. Your hair apparently grows 0.5 inches each month, so they are attempting to look back on your last 90 days.
It also has a lot to do with body fat ...

You can get amplified rabbit ears that plug into the wall. I was able to watch all the Saints games in Nola on Fox.

I also have that Crosley pictured above. Got it as a gift and doubted it would sound good enough being all-in-one. I have been very pleased with it for 3-4 years now.
But it cannot be plugged into external speakers. You can plug in an Aux cord and play an iPod through it though. At the cheap ...
| O-T Lounge|| Anyone had something 3D printed? - Zissou on 2/5/14 at 9:42 am|
I am considering having one of our industrial vessels 3D printed to use as a visual at conferences and meetings. Have no experience in this field, and all I currently have is 2D cad drawings. Pretty simple though, just a main barrel with a few exterior pipes.
Know of anyone in the Houston area?...

| Music Board|| re: What was everyone's thoughts on Bruno Mars halftime show? - Zissou on 2/3/14 at 12:01 pm|
Not a big fan of Bruno, but I thought him and his band put on a good show. The gold jackets were cool and that footwork he showed off made you think of MJ.
It was good to see RHCP, but if you didn't know the words to "Give It Away", you wouldn't know what the hell they were saying....
