re: Chances of NOLA getting new Amazon HQ - DandyPimp
There is no shot for New Orleans to win this project, however i would not be surprised if it is named a finalist. New Orleans has probably one of the top economic developers in the country in Michael Hecht with GNO Inc. He will put together a strong pitch. ...

re: I'm starting to sour on NOLA... - DandyPimp
I was not talking about population per se, more about "momentum" and the physical aspects of the city. The CBD has seen a ton of multi-family & hospitality development, which have created the potential for a great live, work, play environment. I see momentum slowing and a general pessimism in t...

re: I'm starting to sour on NOLA... - DandyPimp
I would be the first to admit that we are in a decline in NOLA right now, but it started 12 months ago and was preceded by a decade of growth and progress. The CBD with enhanced living, dining and entertainment options is better than it's ever been. Also roads still suck, but some of the primary...

re: Delta Sky Club - DandyPimp
I was recently in the renovated sky club at LAX and was very impressed. The food was really good. They had a make your own rice bowl with delicious chicken, greens, sticky rice and other toppings. They had draft and bottled beer, along with a make your own cocktail with Grey Goose and other premiu...

re: Real Estate Development Question - DandyPimp
I know real estate brokers get a bad rap around here but a good commercial broker will be worth his/her weight in gold in the scenario you laid out. Commercial deals have many idiosyncrasies and you need a professional to guide you through the lease proces. ...

re: How Do Drew Brees' Kids Attend School? - DandyPimp
Can you imagine growing up as Drew Brees' kids in New Orleans in this social media era. They would have no privacy. I for one do not blame him a bit for his choice to raise his kids in Del Mar and i say this has someone who loves raising my kids in New Orleans. ...

re: Hawaii vs Caribbean Upscale Resort Trip - DandyPimp
Had a brief (much too brief) visit to Hulalai (four seasons big island) last April for a friends 40th birthday. Dining was incredible especially ULU which has an incredible setting right on the beach. We rented a house which was a good value versus the hotel even with paying $150 per day per person ...

We went to Round Hill for lunch over the summer while were staying at the adjacent Tryal Club. Small sample, but i was very impressed by the employees we encountered. We arrived a little before lunch service started and everyone we encountered was friendly and eager to show off the resort. We real...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - DandyPimp
Unless they are overhauling Uber VIP, its a completely worthless benefit at least in New Orleans. VIP is based solely off of driver rating, so many of the "VIP" drivers i've had in New Orleans are brand new to Uber. Cars were the same shite boxes you often get with Uber X. Often it doubles your wait ...
