re: I10 East Closed at Lobdell - Crescent Connection
I-10 was closed at the US-90 exit heading east. I was coming from New Orleans heading West on I-10...got stuck in traffic at S Acadian Thwy for about an hour before it cleared right after the river. Saw the accident on the other side heading East, and I-10 E was closed from the Tiger Cage to Hwy 90/...

Bars nearby La Boca - Crescent Connection
Having a guy's night out soon with dinner at La Boca and drinks beforehand. Looking for a bar within walking distance of La Boca. Haven't been down there that much recently, and trying to avoid Lucy's or The District (we're all married and in our early 30s). Anything nearby that is similar to Bulldo...

re: Mark Ingram averaged 5.1 YPC last season, am I missing something? - Crescent Connection
In 6 years and 73 games played, he's fumbled 5 times on 884 attempts and 3 times on 133 receptions (1 fumble per 127 touches), losing 5 of those. For comparison, DeMarco Murray has 13 fumbles in 80 games on 1356 attempts and 4 fumbles on 260 receptions (1 fumble per 95 touches), losing 11. And a lot...

re: Bachelor Party Destinations? - Crescent Connection
[quote]define cheap[/quote]I think I paid around $180 for roundtrip airfare. We got this property that had 3 littles condos surrounding a pool area. Probably had about 12-14 of us and I don't think I paid more than $300 for my share (3 nights). So you're at roughly $500 right there for airfare and r...

re: Bachelor Party Destinations? - Crescent Connection
Key West is a cheap roundtrip fare. Duval St is nice. Austin is always fun. Been to Hard Rock and Beau Rivage multiple times for bachelor parties, and always had a great time. Usually play a round of golf somewhere nearby in Biloxi, check in, eat at On the Half Shell, then hit the blackjack ta...

re: Which zoo is better? BR Zoo or Zoo of Acadiana? - Crescent Connection
Never been to BR Zoo, but Zoo of Acadiana is nice. I grew up in Nola, and while it is nowhere near the size of Audubon, it is surprisingly enjoyable for an hour or two with the kids. They have a white tiger, some giraffes, lions, some bears, different types of monkeys, a crocodile/alligator section,...

re: Blue Basil Lafayette - Crescent Connection
Solid place. I just moved over here from the West Bank, and while it's no Pho Tau Bay or Pho Ga Quang Minh, it's very respectable considering the market it's in. Went twice last month and their pho hits the spot. ...
