re: London Rec's Needed - rsb831
Theatre: My career is in performing arts management and production, so I feel obligated to send info about London’s theatre scene, but if you and your family aren’t into that then feel free to skip this section. You can often find cheap tickets online or at the Leicester Square booth. - There’s t...

re: London Rec's Needed - rsb831
Recommendations for London is actually pretty difficult because there are so many great things, but I’ll try to narrow it down into some categories. Pubs: - The Marquis Cornwallis in Bloomsbury is a GREAT pub. It’s rather large, as far as pubs go, so theres usually a place to sit — which is qui...

re: Easter Sunday Dinner near the French Quarter - rsb831
I was with a big group (14) at Arnaud's for lunch on Lundi Gras. It was festive, a full house. They do a great job with large parties Service was on point, food was decent - nothing amazing, but well prepared. No complaints. Andy Garcia was at the next table- with a similar sized group as was mo...

Went a few months ago. Nice meal, I'd say above average, but not "knock your socks off" memorable. I do remember ordering 2 specials - a pasta as a starter and the fish, but no recollection of preparations. Cool space, sat inside, as courtyard was full. Cocktails were good, wine list decent. We we...

So sorry to hear this. Only met her once. She was at the table next to us after the SEC Championship game. It was an amazing night watching the cards fall into place to go to the BCS game.
