BBQ in New Orleans - Crescent Connection
Ok, wife and I are going to Nola Saturday for our anniversary. We have dinner reservations at Brigtsen's, but wanted to grab some bbq and head over to WWII Museum during the day. Skimmed some recent threads, and it seems like Central City BBQ has gone down the shitter. I've never been to Blue Oak. W...

Best automatic drip coffee maker - Crescent Connection
Looking for a new automatic drip coffee maker. My 5-year-old $35 Mr. Coffee has seen its last days, and I'm currently looking at the Cuisinart DCC-3200 and BUNN NHS Velocity Brew. Hesitant to pull the trigger because even though they are highly rated on Amazon, I still see a lot of negative reviews ...

re: Date Recommendations in Laffy - Crescent Connection
Pamplonas is a good first date place. Small plates, wine, slow pace. Can get out of there for about $100-130 for the two of you. Marcello's or Social would be my only other options to suggest. Rock-n-Sake is too loud to converse on a first date. ETA: Blue Basil if she likes Vietnamese. ...
