[quote]I'm not a fan of how many people try to pull off a sub mariner as an all around watch. It's not the watch to wear with a suit. It's a dive watch. [/quote] It's not ideal as a dress watch but . The submariner is smaller and thinner than most other dive watches and is an appropriate size f...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

Large and dressy don't really go together, but it depends on your definition of large. Dressy needs to stay under 42mm and traditionally is less than 40mm across. Two recommendations: More dressy: Jaeger Lecoultre Master [img]http://www.gemnation.com/images/watches/JLeC/Q1368420.jpg[/img] ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: PSA: prime NY Strip - NewOrleansBlend on 3/11/17 at 9:48 am
Bought 3 steaks and tuna yesterday. Some of the steaks looked poorly butchers, with lots of fibrous fatty tissue in the center of the cut. Never seen that with a strip. Found 3 good ones. I'd say they were lower end of prime/upper end of choice. Made carpaccio which was delicious and cooked a b...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: What does the F&D Board say about these top ranked BBQ joints? - NewOrleansBlend on 3/7/17 at 9:51 pm
The shed is horrible. They have to boil or bake their ribs and maybe throw them on the pit for a few minutes. They were grey, soggy, and had an awful flavor. ate one and threw them away, made me nauseous thinking about eating more. Absolutely the worst meal I've had all year...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Make the decision for me. BMW 5 or Audi A6. - NewOrleansBlend on 2/28/17 at 11:30 am
Unfortunately an Apr tune isn't offered on '16-'17 a6 (c 7.5)after they upgraded the 3.0 "t". Since the s4 moved on from the same engine to a true turbo I guess they decided not to put in the effort in cracking the ecu. Disappointing. I looked at the jag as well the interior fell short of th...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

The 5 is new for 2018, I don't think there are even on the lots yet. I drove both (2017 models) and strongly preferred the Audi. Interiors aren't even close...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
Best boiled crawfish to go around siegan/Perkins? - NewOrleansBlend on 2/18/17 at 4:06 am
I see that village grocery/Marty j's, la boilers, tramonte's, heads and tails, Alexander's, robert's that are reasonably close. Sammy's and lakeside as well but would rather not pay that much unless they just that much better. Or is it worth it to drive a few more miles somewhere else to get them?...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (5)

I'm hoping he's making fun of the incessant "rockstar chef" hyperbole that the k street marketing department has been pushing. "rockstar" chefs don't work at branch restaurants turning out bland 110 year old recipes. But, he has a beard and tattoos so he's halfway there. He may very well have a...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Under Armour stock decline - NewOrleansBlend on 2/1/17 at 8:11 am
Agreed, like their shirts. But to me their golf shorts are the best thing they make. The fabrics are light and breathable, perfect for our weather, and manage to still look nice. The little bit of stretch in the waist ensures a great fit ...
